Hey Everyone!

Now that the dust has settled, I'm trying to come up with a new timekeeping marker for my next attempt. I am not one to be meticulous in anything, and even when approaching the GMAT, I am more comfortable with being flexible. My previous timing strategy has been:

At 55 minutes remaining, I should be done with question 10
At 35 minutes remaining, I should be done with question 20
At 15 minutes remaining, I should be done with question 30

I more or less apply this to both quant and verbal.

Now that we have 62 minutes to complete 31 quant questions and 65 minutes to complete 36 verbal questions, I not only need to change that, but I should probably split up section strategies. I'm thinking something like this:

Quant
45 minutes remaining, done with question 8
25 minutes remaining, done with question 18
10 minutes remaining, done with question 28

Verbal
45 minutes remaining, done with question 10
25 minutes remaining, done with question 20
10 minutes remaining, done with question 30

What do you guys think? Has anyone come up with any interesting timekeeping strategies?

Seems like you may cut it a little close on verbal, perhaps? But otherwise I think it looks pretty sound!

Taking the new exam tomorrow, so fingers crossed....haven't been able to do much timing practice as there aren't any materials set up this way yet, so will keep you posted!
