[*] Not timing your practice (e.g. books, mobile apps, anything you solve, you should be timing yourself)

As a GMAT tutor, and someone who has improved his own scores from Q44 to Q50, I agree with almost all of this very helpful advice, except for the "always time yourself when practicing" part. I believe that in many cases, you need to practice untimed first: time pressure can build bad habits and/or create unnecessary anxiety.

Over two decades of tutoring, it has become clear to me that it's better to first learn how to solve the question properly at your own speed, and then learn how to do so within the required time limit, in the same way that a musician might learn a song at half-speed, practicing each note slowly and carefully before ultimately performing it at the required tempo.
