    Any suggestions on whipping through quantitative reasoning faster?

    Of the four or five subject tests I have taken on the computer, from barrons, and from the ADA booklet, I have gotten consistant 18-19-and-20's. BUT I NEVER finish the sections!! I always have between 8 and 10 questions left unanswered because I don't have time. I am anal about accuracy, and I get about 95% of what I answer right, but then I am penalized for not answering all of them. When I realize I have like a minute left, I will usually just mark down 'A' for the last 8 or so, just so I may get some of them correct.

    How do you pace yourself? I feel like I can't go any faster. Should I spend the next couple weeks memorizing my multiplication tables?

    Thanks all of you fellow pre-dents!

    I think 90 minutes for sciences is more than enough time if you know your stuff.

    However, i agree with you PAT, math and reading are very hard to manage. I guess it is all about practice.
