I had to do this with game 3 in October (the theaters game)-if I had stubbornly stayed working on it until I was confident of every AC, I probably would've ran out of time to do game 4 properly (which was an easy game, and I would've lost a bunch of gimme points). Instead, I moved on to 4, finished it easily, and was able to go back to 3 and finish the questions that had given me trouble without panicking or running out of time.
This is golden advice. I did the same thing (except with two questions in game 2) and had the same experience. Obviously skipping applies to all sections, but you really stand to benefit from looking at games in particular from a different perspective.
this is something i've been working on for RC. I often find myself chewing away time because I can decided between an answer choice. I try my best to cut the rope when it seems like all hope is lost at the moment and then pray that i have time to come back.
We'll see. I'm taking a lighter day today of just a RC section timed and some light drilling. I'm giving myself 2 more real days of studying and then just going to keep myself sharp the last 2 days.
