I have created a "error log
" tool in Excel that I think will benefit many people. I have heard over and over again that this is the single best tool one can have as they go through thousands of questions. You can start to see a pattern and focus your attention on those problem areas. I, like most, tend to always gravitate into the areas I am good at to build my self-confidence but at the end of the day that will not get me the 700+ score I desire. It's hard to focus on the problem areas and rather overwhelming but the error log
is the best way to tackle these problems and recognize patterns.
I have gone through hundreds if not thousands of problems but until I started to use this error tool I never focused or documented my performance. I have incorporated many elements into the spreadsheet from members of the gmatclub and used and built on tools from the "error log
for active members" forum.
The tool allows you to log the following:
-Test Book, Question Category, Question Sub category, Question number, your answer, correct answer, decision process and explanation (I built these drop-down menu format)
-Also, I inserted the spreadsheets from the "error log
active forum" that helps track test scores to better identify your errors in a timed environment
I am more than willing to share and distribute, but can't seem to find a way to attach the document. I like most on this site have gained a great deal of information from this site and I'm just trying to give something in return.
