I found some errors in Awesome Error Log. When I choose some definite source on the Verbal Stats sheet (except option "ALL") it produces wrong statistics and consequently graths. Could the author or somebody else be so kind to fix formulas, please?

Is it recommended that we update the error log with questions we got right also? I'm using the first template found on this page by Saruba and I see it has charts documenting which percentage you get right and in which category.

If I were to update the log with every question that I did, I'd be spending more time updating the spreadsheet than I would doing the problems. I plan on only updating it when I get questions wrong. (Just now, I did 5 review Kaplan number property problems and got just 1 wrong.. that's the only one I inputted on the log).

Or are those accuracy checks for when we do the incorrect problems a second time around? I just want to make sure I'm utilizing this error log properly.

Or maybe I should have a second error log for when I do actual practice tests, and in that, I can keep track of every question in an effort to get a better handle on my raw score? idk. lol.. i really dont know

I find the error log very elaborated, but I find them difficult to use... I would rather prefer a simple and easy one... anyone could recomend any?

I am sorry, but what exactly is the problem here?

I think the terms are fairly self explanatory? Careless means you messed up stupidly. Guess means you guessed and either got it right or wrong - possibly wrong, if you're putting it in an error log. Not sure means you got down to like two choices, maybe and picked one. Tough means it was hard and you took too long or something. Knowledge gap means you didn't know how to attack the problem at all and Read the Q refers to you missing a crucial detail in the question and hence getting everything wrong.

And the moderators are here. We try to answer everyone's questions but you've gotta give it a bit of time. Try thinking about stuff rather than just post things immediately. Personally, I didn't really understand what your question even was.

Hello,
Before I posted this question, I tried to read through this thread and figure out if other people had this issue. Many do, but no clear answer (at least from that I was to see).
The way I see it, these error logs are only mostly valuable if you are solving ALL questions and logging your answers.
This does not seem to correspond to what was explained in all-about-the-error log post
all-about-the-error-log-11754.html
I was under the impression that the best practice promoted by most members of forum is to log all incorrect, difficult, and/or timely answers for future review.
As I have just started studying and am still trying to get organised, I would appreciate if the more experienced members share teir error logging best practices and how they use the above tools for that, or if you can link to the appropriate threads.
Regards,
Fadi

How to Use:

I have a question and an answer for those who aren't sure. It would definitely be helpful for anyone who has used/created the error log (I am just referring to the "winner" error log for this particular post) to provide a quick insight on how they have demonstrated to use the excel. I just downloaded it and here's my take.

Simply put as you take practice exams, and check your answers as you get answers wrong you can enter them into the error log. All of the categories are pretty self explanatory, and as you build the data the graphs automatically update to give you a visual representation of how you are doing. However, taking this approach I have a big question about the columns "Choice" and "OA".

It appears that the answer you chose should go under "choice" makes sense. I'm not sure what OA stands for, but it appears it refers to the correct/actual answer? Do I have that right? If you play around with the data, it appears that way, as if you mark both colums with the same letter, the visual graphs change too (Ex. For any questions under "Area" noted as arithmetic, if you set the "choice" to a different answer than "OA" you'll notice the graph goes to 0.

HOWEVER, if this is an error log, then can someone who has used it explain why you would put an entry of something you got the answer CORRECT to on the error log? It certainly provides good stats, but would mean you'd have to go put the entry in for every question. If that's what you are supposed to do, then ok, but can someone clarify? Or does "OA" stand for something else?

LASTLY, what is confusing is that I would think the "#" column would correspond exactly to the number of the question on that particular test ("source"). Is that correct? If so its a little misleading that the numbers in that column are sequential, it would make more intuitive sense if they were random. (not criticizing of course, just looknig for clarity).

Thanks for the help, and thanks for an awesome and very clever (once clarified) error log.

I'd like to know how to add to the database on awesome error log and have it show up in the drop down options on the verbal and math logs. i want to input more sources (I've already filled up what's available) and more verbal area issues such as flaw and frame. I tried to go in and understand the formulas but I can't get to the root of it so that when it looks to the database it includes the cells I've added. Or maybe the creator could just add in a few extra rows in the formulas that look to the database and upload new version? Lot to ask I know but I certainly can't figure it out.

In regards to error logs, I am using the "friendly error log" but I am a little confused on how it works. The data is not matching up in the graphs. I only have about 7 questions inputted so far. Do I need to have more questions in order for the graphs to be truly representative?

Thanks for putting together such a wonderful Error Log!

However do I use this error log only for questions that I get wrong or should I log for the ones I get right too? The reason I'm asking is because the winning error log (sauraba's) has a graph "Accuracy by Area of Knowledge" that gets plotted only if I log my correct answers.

Thanks!
