What do you suggest is the best method to take notes on both Quant and Verbal Section?
I usually tend to write down ABCDE multiple times on my scratch pad to keep a better track of the POE for the Verbal Section.
What other techniques do you suggest can be implemented?
Thanks

People have their own techniques developed over time with practice, What works for one person need not necessarily work for another.
What you do is one of the more commonly used techniques. I read another post sometime back where the author said that he/she divided the pages in the pad into cells, and put question numbers and wrote ABCDE in the cells before starting the section. This helped saved a couple of minutes in each section. however, I'm not sure whether this is allowed.

Hi abansal1805,

It would certainly eat up a lot of time if you write ABCDE for every question. You may just fill the small tiny squares on scratch pad in a row with:

1. X for wrong
2. ~ if you would re-evaluate a choice
3. or any other sign that makes sense too understand a choice as wrong, right, re-visit type or confused.

Following is a brilliant Article by Stacey that might help you to completely plan your strategy for using the scratch pad efficiently.
