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!

I think this goes along with my question. The graphs are not really making sense, and I think that is because I am only putting in answers that I got wrong because I thought that was what an error log was for.

Yes that's correct. I just read your question. I'm thinking of doing away with this error log and come up something more simple; excel graphs are a no brainer. While it's nice to see the statistics of what you are good at, it's equally time consuming to log EVERY question into error log. I prefer not to do that.

Hi,

I'm afraid I have overseen something or havn't understoond some essentials about error logs, since the questions seems obvious to me: Is there an error log for (some of) the gmatclub tests questions? For the OG I use the MGMAT OG Tracker, which by default shows the according topic/type of each question.

excel guru add in accuracy for quant and verbal subareas? [#permalink]
24 Mar 2011, 10:07

Could one of you excel gurus out there or maybe the creator himself please add in the data tables and corresponding graphs to show accuracy by verbal and quant sub areas for the awesome error log V3. It would be helpful to me and I'm sure to tons of people out there to be able to pinpoint their areas of weakness to the exact sub-areas within the areas. Say you have an area of geometry and you know that geometry is your weakest area but within geometry what should you focus on? Is it triangles, lines, circles, coordinate geometry? Maybe you have an area of arithmetic but is your biggest weakness probability, combinations and permutations, or number properties.

I will be SOOO grateful if anyone decides to take on the challenge. I've played a bit with the sheet and customized the database and even figured out how to add in the verbal time tables to show the verbal time graphs, but adding in the sub areas is just too much for my level of excel expertise.

Thanks Brad. Any way to make this into an XL 2003 file?

I saved it in the .xls format but there were 12 compatibility issues found (mostly concerning date format and "links to a closed workbook"). I also edited this whole thing on a mac, so I don't know what effects that will produce. Either way I hope it's helpful. By the way, I ended up making the stats for subareas as well. Hope that's useful to some folks out there. I'll post the file saved in the other excel formats as well.

This post received KUDOS

Here is the macro-enabled workbook format, which includes my modifications to the Awesome Error Log V 3.0 by Saruba, Spoilt, and Trianglock. The modifications include adding in the verbal time tables and graphs plus extra sheets to show verbal and quant subarea accuracy and timing. I hope the original macros stayed in tact, as I can't be sure because I am working on a mac. The macros are just bells and whistles anyway. I would say this should count as Awesome Error Log V 4.0 but I'll leave that up to the original creators to decide.

Thanks "heel289", +1!

Any way you can save as an Excel 2003 file for those of us whose employers are XP-oriented Luddites?

Hello guys!

I'd like to start that this forum is awesome. It's very helpful source in the long and not always easy way to succeed in GMAT. ))

Now, about Error logs. I didn't spend a lot of time to choose an Error log among the available files. I thought (and still think) they are all great. But when I try to use the first one (Friendly_error_log) I found that not all statistics there are reasonable. There are some errors in formulas in the Verbal Stats sheet, Question by issue part. There are references to the Quant log sheet. So, it would be great if someone add proper formula and upload the file to this forum.

I do always check my errors directly and just mark the question in my material as wrong. After one week, I redo the wrong questions checking if I still get them wrong ...

In most error logs, it is not possible to specify where exactly the question is coming from. For example in the Friendly Error Log, I can mentiont he source, let's say Kaplan, but cannot specify where in Kaplan, which page which number. can someone please help me understand?

I am stoked to see the error log brought to life in true analytic fashion. I've been tracking my errors on paper, but this is another world entirely. Much appreciated.
