Comment on Managing your Time on the GMAT

Guys, just wanted to share that this technique simply helped me to gain 120 points comparing to what I scored before, without extra studying. I have taken the exam 5 times and always had a problem with the timing - each time I had to skip last 10-15 questions to finish the section on time. I just finished my 5th exam, and so happy that applied this technique! Best of luck to everybody!

It shouldn't take more than 15 to 20 seconds to copy each chart.
Since proper time management is crucial to maximizing your score, I think it's a good investment of your time.

Dear Brent, I was hoping to check-in with you and request if you could provide the time management chart which is adapted to the older GMAT (75 minutes per section), given that the software for the new version is not out for practice purposes. Could you please help with the respective table?

It's very odd that the test-makers have not yet upgraded the DOWNLOADABLE GMATPrep software to reflect the recent (April 2018) changes to the test.

That said, if you use the ONLINE version of the GMATPrep test, you'll see that it is updated: https://www.mba.com/global/store/store-catalog/gmat-preparation/gmat-off...

That said, if you want/need to practice with the downloadable practice tests, here's our OLD time management video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doyvboIy3JU
