Hi,
I am have been preparing for GMAT from last 1month and book date as 25 May ( i.e. before new look of GMAT ).
i took GMAT prep today and screwed up with time management.

For Quant,
I was able to solve 31 out 37 question in time , rest were just marked without reading in last 30seconds.
For Verbal,
I was able to solve 24 question in time , rest were just marked without reading in last 1minute.

Can anyone please help/guide me how to cope with it as only 40odd days to for D day.

Thanks.

Timing is a very important aspect of the GMAT. Saying "I can solve X problems but then rush through Y in the last minute" means you timing issues, both on individual problems and average time problems.

You've got to develop an internal sense of time. The good thing is that you've got time to do that before the test.

Start doing practice problems with a stopwatch next to you, and record the time it takes you to work through a problem so you can visualize how long it actually is.

Then, as you study and become more adept at manipulating problems and learning more material, start pushing yourself to find the solution by 2 minutes, or 3 at the maximum. Stick to this strategy and guess if you find yourself going over 3 minutes - I struggled with this quite often - I would spend 7 minutes on a problem I would eventually get wrong, leaving me no time for problems that I could get right.

You've just got to learn to sacrafice a few problems in order to put yourself in a better position for the test overall. Time monitoring must be ingrained in your head by test day.
