Although time is limited on the GRE, working too quickly can damage your score. Many problems hinge on subtle points, and most require careful reading of the setup. Because undergraduate school puts such heavy reading loads on students, many will follow their academic conditioning and read the questions quickly, looking only for the gist of what the question is asking. Once they have found it, they mark their answer and move on, confident they have answered it correctly. Later, many are startled to discover that they missed questions because they either misread the problems or overlooked subtle points. While you want to answer every question, remember to pace yourself - you will have about one minute per question in the Verbal section, and about two minutes per question in the Math section.


The level of difficulty of the second verbal or math section you see will depend on how well you perform on the first verbal or math section. If you do well on the first verbal section, then the second section will be a little harder. And if you do poorly on the first math section, then the second section will be a little easier. Within each section, you can change answers and skip questions and later return to them (“mark and review” feature). But once you leave a section, you cannot return to it.
