I started doing the practice problems in Problem solving and DS from kaplan 2005.

I notices that when I don't time my self I do them really good but fold under pressure when I start to time myself. It not like I don't know to do the problems anymore but the clock is just way toooooo.. distracting.

What do you guys advice? Should I time myself initially when I am doing practice problems ? Is it a good idea to time yourself always? That way I get used to a clock running next to me always :(

Thanks,
-santosh

It is a good idea to time yourself. It's better you get accustomed to the pressured of a timed envrionement earlier, rather than later. And it's definitely much better to experience and adapt right now, rather than go underwater on test day

Try reading Honghu's prep post. I think she put it as a sticky. She's suggesting a set of certain problems to be completed in 35 minutes, and it sounds like a good way to practice.
