Is something like this even doabale? I could barely make it to 11, before I found I had just 3 min on the clock, rushed through the next 4 (got 3 worng) and finished woth 3 no attempts! Is it just me who couldn't finish it on time?

Pacing can be developed with lots of practice. Check out the pacing posts by searching the archives in this forum, or by perusing the resources tab. You'll find some good tips to help you!

Talk about a blow to one's confidence! The Kaplan practice tests (not the practice GMAT) really took the wind out of my sails. Not only are they exceptionally fast paced, but I only averaged slightly over 50% correct on the problem solving 1-4 and DS 1&2 tests. I did not finish any of them.

Geesh.... maybe I should look more towards pushing a broom at B-school than actually attending!

I must say Kaplan PS worth only it's pacing for it has very easy problems in its CAT mode after the series of questions 25-27...
