Hey guys, I have a question.

I have completed my first MGMAT Strategy Guide all the way. I made my own quasi error log which is actually made as a Word document (extremely dumb of me not to think of Excel, I'll admit). When I did those practice problems from MGMAT that are linked to OG 12, I wrote down in the document each problem I did not solve correctly, as well as the descriptions of why was my answer wrong and what area of number properties it is.

So as you can see, I have recently started studying for GMAT. My question is, is this error log made for those who are doing the prep tests, or is it also for starters like me? Or in other words, is this usable for me at the moment?

I am asking this because it might be easier for me to convert now to one of the error logs than it would be later in the game.

[Edit]: Oh, and great job to the authors of the logs, I really appreciate the effort.

Some of these error logs are for advanced users (sometimes too advanced).
Your goal should be to have a list of all your questions (answered incorrectly or you want to save them for future). Your goal is to use spreadsheets, word docs, napkins, books, etc - anything works.

Thanks for the info bb.

Do you think you can you could recommend me an error log from this forum. I am decent in Excel but I am not advanced. However, I am always willing to learn unless it is not going to take away too much of my time.

I would say use/pick one that you can manage and takes the least time to worry about.

Here are all kinds of Error Logs - you pick one. I just used a folder where I put all of my questions (print outs or copies) into to review later.

Various Error Logs:

Re: GMAT Error Log [#permalink] New post 09 Feb 2012, 22:01
Hey Saruba, I have some may be stupid questions. I went through all details, but not too clear on how to use this error log. I am listing down my ways, please correct me where I am wrong:

1. Open the quant sheet (eg)
2. attempt OG (eg) and then enter all wrong answers (only) in your log
3. will get an update in the stats sheet of area of errors

Is this all that I need to do?did i miss anything....also reinstating, I will only need to enter the wrong answers and not all attempted answers (including correctly answered ones).

pls advice.

Hello guys,

I have a short question regarding the compatibility of the Excel files. Which of them could I use with MS Office 2008 on a Macintosh?

Thanks in advance for your help!

It's been more than a year I have not even visited this website. Sorry for not replying to questions and for not fixing the bugs that you may have reported.

It is good to see that people are still using the logs we created. Those may not be efficient and 100% accurate. However, I happy that our efforts are helping GMATClub members.

Cheers!!!

Spoilt

" I focused on building a user-friendly and simple to use application , rather than cracking hundreds of functions. Honestly, an error log won't make you any better by itself, it only will tell you in which areas you must work harder and in which areas you are rocking the house. And that's what my proposal does, no more no less.

I used similar colors to those of GMAT Club in order to help people feel comfortable using it while they spend the hours cracking questions through the forums."



Awesome, even in 2012 :D

Can someone please tell me what gmc stands for? I searched and couldn't find an answer. I'm assuming it is for grammatical construction but I want to make sure that is correct. It is an area under the verbal section of one of the error logs. Thank you.

Hi BB,
I downloaded the awesome error log and I did see the correct formula for Correct? column. But it does not calculate the stats. I have attached the sheet for your reference. Please have a look and see if it is missing something
