I did an old paper GMAT, and I did a SC part. Before the GMAT had 22 SC questions, and you only had 25 minutes to do them... and plenty of them were rather long questions. Anyways, I timed myself today, and ended up taking 24 minutes and 56 seconds to do them... got 18/22 right, made some stupid mistakes - but the timing is what got me. I know we get more time on the computer one, BUT, as the level of difficulty goes up, do you get questions where the underlined part is the entire sentence, and you had 5 massive choices? If so, that's brutal, because time comes into play... and I'm not THAT fast at doing SC - I reread a sentence a few times and check for different things..... in serial, not in parallel, which is hard to do. Contextually reading the sentence then the corrections alone takes 20-30s alone!

How do you guys improve your SC error correction speed? I've been doing SC nonstop now for a week and my speed has only improved marginably. Thanks
