Hope you all are doing great!

Can someone list the exact time i should be spending on each of the sections : verbal - RC (passage, questions) /CR/SC and Quant - PS/DS.

I would like to time myself when preparing. Please suggest the best scenarios.

Thanks.

The only rule of thumb I know is for RC:

Number of questions * 2 = time you should take to sketch and answer the questions.

For SC, I'd say you should be aiming under 2 minutes.

I didnt get all jumbled up on "how long do I get for a CR" vs an SC or an RC... I just did one simple thing:

41 verbals, 75 minutes, your average must be under 2 minutes per question.
So, I just timed every question I did, then checked my average. Not fancy, but it works.... In other words, its ok to spend 3 minutes on a RC question if you are knocking out SC's in a minute.

For comparisons sake, here's some of my timings:

The new VUE format doesn't show the number of questions for a RC paragraph(s). That makes it hard to predict. Try to nail your SC down to under 1:30 per problem and this will help ur overal verbal timing.
