Time spent per question type

by beno84 » Tue Aug 14, 2012 12:27 am
I noticed that some question types in the Integrated Reasoning part present more than one question.
Usually multi-source and table analysis.
I'm just wondering whether anyone knows whether it is something I can count on, and then spend more time understanding the information given at each question.
For example, if I know I have 2 questions regarding the same information, I can spend 3 minutes on understanding the material and 2 minutes on answering.
Any other insights on time management in this part would be more than welcomed!!

Plus make sure you read the question just once. It's not a good idea to read questions over and over. Initially it is not easy but eventually it has to develop as a habit.
Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
