    I know the verbal section is 7 passages. But as far as PS and BS, I heard it was 7 sections of passage based questions and 3 independent question sets, anyone know?

    Was wondering how I should time the PS and BS

    7 minutes per passage.

    1 minute per discrete, maximum. (13 discretes)

    Kaplan's timing method worked great for me.

    Do all the discrete problems first (13 min.)
    2 passages ( 16 min.)
    2 passages ( 16 min.)
    2 passages (16 min.)
    1 passage ( 9 min. this is usually the hardest passage)
