How to improve on time taken to solve a SC question [#permalink]

After a lot of work, I could improve my performance on SC but now I have hit the wall. I take around 2 mins to solve a sc question. On the gmat club forums, people suggest to knock off the sc question in less than a miniute, which seems like remote dream to me.

I am expecting some good suggestions to improve on the time taken to solve a sc question.

Hi there!

The way I usually tackle SC questions is as follows:

1) Line the responses up and see where they differ.
2) Take each response in turn, and examine the differing portions for errors.
3) When you find an error in a response, eliminate it.
4) Repeat until only 1 answer remains, and check to make sure it has no errors.

This is the gist of how I approach SC questions, and I find that it works well for me. After enough time spent preparing for the GMAT, you'll eventually have seen enough SC questions to be able to identify the kinds of rules that the GMAT is testing for. Once you've reached that point, eliminating SC answers will take fairly little time, and you should be able to handle most questions in a minute or less.
