Hello everybody!
I have a question about my strategy on verbal section.
Do you think that guess directly all the three/four RC questions of the last text could be a solution to save enough time that I can spend on CR and SC question?
Because I struggle in stay on time during my verbal section and a lot of time I have to guess in the last 2-3 questions in the end of the test.
If I skip the last text I should save a lot of time that I can spend more efficiently solving SC and CR question.

You should consider that my target score in verbal is 35, actually I get a 30-33 during CAT tests.
What do you suggest to improve my score?
I have read that the first ten are the most important questions, so I prefer spend 25 min on them and skip three question in the end of the test. That skip should not reduce strongly my score.
Do you think that the RC questions are heavier than the other questions?
