I'm way too slow on the Q section! How do I go faster?

I am going for biomedical PhD programs, so my Q section needs to be high. But -- I'm really having trouble finishing the Kaplan/ETS (the paper book) practice Q tests in time (I finish the paper based V sections in about the exact time and the computer based ones in like half the time). I feel like if I had 1.5 the time on Q section -- I would get every problem right, but I end up spending too long on each question, trying to hurry myself up/panicking and making mistakes, and then not having enough time at the end to finish the last couple of qs. I have always been at the top of my math classes but always the last one to turn in an exam (I'm a naturally slow/thoughtful test taker). What do I do to be faster?? Practice has helped some, but I'm afraid that practice isn't enough. Anyone have any suggestions? What else should I do? I have about 2 weeks until my test date.
