for ones that have like 4-5 conditionals. is it advisable to diagram? or should we skip those and do them at the end when we have more time?

I usually just diagram straight through, quickly to get to the answer, especially if the MBT is towards the beginning of the section. Since I don't know how many of these will show up again towards the end, where questions can get more difficult, I don't like to skip them. However, if the question IS towards the end and I don't have others (or many others to review already), then yes, I go ahead and skip.

You should skip/save all long Q's for the end.

That said, diagramming is a good idea while prepping, but ideally, you'll be able to do most in your head by test day. 

4 or 5 IFC's may require diagramming sometimes, though.

What is an "IFC"?
