#### Question for those who got 700+

Fri Sep 21, 2007 4:36 pm
Just curious - when you did Problem Solving questions on the GMAT did you attempt to solve every question (e.g. plug in numbers, set up formulas to solve for x, etc.) to come up with the right answer or would you rely more on looking at the answer choices first and then ballparking and estimating?

I ask this because I find that when I try to solve problem solving questions through methods such as plugging in and setting up equations it takes quite a while (to set up my equation, solve, look at the answer choices, choose one, check my answer, etc.)

Many of my students who have gotten 700s and higher go into the test on the assumption that they will guess on several questions per section. I usually tell people to assume they will quickly guess on ~5. One person who swore by that approach got a 770.
