During the course they drilled it in my head to spend 2 mins on every problem max. When I stick to this, my CATS are around 480-520. When I add more time to my questions, like 2.5-3, and purposely guess on problems I have no clue on doing, I get a CAT of 580.

Is this an okay strategy?

I always feel like I'm being rushed with the 2 min max per question. I'm assuming that only applies to people aiming to get into the 90%+ percentile.

That's one way to go about it. You can also visualize the whole exam as 5 sets of questions,each containing (7-8) questions that you need to complete within 15 mins. If at the end of 15 mins you are lagging behind you can adjust accordingly. The one thing that you need to keep in mind here is not to spend too much time on the easier questions and definitely give tough questions the time and effort they deserve.
