Nice work Hussain! +1

I'm uploading screen shots of my analysis for everyone to see. I took GMATPrep back on Feb 09. You can see how I bombed the Quant with so many mistakes in the first 13 questions. I also think I had more than usual DS questions. And 3 of the 4 RC had only 3 questions. I personally prefer to have more questions for each passage, to make up the reading time.

Hussain, there is a small mistake in the Verbal chart in the Analysis1 page, the range of last questions is 31-41 instead of 31-37.

A small suggestion: it would be great to see in the chart how many DS or PS were wrong, and how many SC, CR and RC were wrong. I also include this questions in my error log, but just in case if anyone wants to quickly see which type of questions had more trouble with during the test.

Good point cano, but i would suggest just to disclose this info just in writeen without graphs as it would be too much graph info.

You are right, that would be the best way. +1
I didn't mean to make a separate graphic. But anyways iIf the current graphic is too full of info then maybe the best place is in nearby cells below the Analysis2 # of Q Graphic.

If members will post their screen shots so we could compare to each other, it would be good to have the number of wrong questions each had. Even when having the same number of wrong questions doesn't mean the same score, it would reflect more convincingly how adaptive the GMATPrep is. For example, I had 17 mistakes in the verbal section and someone else had also 17, then comparing in which sub range of questions each had the mistakes will give us the difference in the verbal score, and we can see the limits of each score for a given number of mistakes.

The real challenge will be to gather the data from each member and make a big spreadsheet comparing all the results. But first we need the individual analysis. Please collaborate!

Thanks for pointing. I have fixed the typo.

I am working on your suggestion. Will revert back & update soon!

Typo error fixed & a new analysis sheet is added showing the count of correct/incorrect answers of each question type.

Do let me know if it serves the purpose.

It seems like RCs are having higher weightage in Verbal.

I have come across this recent post by one of our club members. Below are his question numbers he got wrong. Even though he got more number of wrong in GMATPrep1 than in GMATPrep2 ( Quants ). He got more score in Prep 1. It seems that
if you get first question wrong and any consequtive questions wrong you are getting killed in Quants. So we need to be very careful specially solving first question and make sure we get it correct.

Here are my errors:

GMATPrep1: 5, 9, 12, 16, 20, 22, 29, 31, 36
GMATPrep2: 1, 5, 7, 11, 14, 17, 21, 28, 29

I think what killed my score in GMATPrep2 is that I failed the first problem, and got two consecutive problems wrong (28 and 29). My perfect from 30 to 41 didn't help an ounce. I guess that the GMAT has some dumb algorithm, and that once it has made its opinion from the early answers, it won't change its mind afterwards.

I think there is no issue in posting the resulting graphs of the analysis tool. Infact the visual results will be great to view!!

If anyone has recently taken the gmat prep, it would be good to have the graphical results here.

Here are my GMAT prep -1 Results I got Dismisal 550. With these result I totally baffled whether or not I will be get my target score of 700
Some of the key points

1. I got 5 wrong in first 11 question of Quant section. These mistakes in the begining are very costly. That to I got first two questions wrong.
2. I got last 2 questions wrong consequtive mistakes.
3. In total 11 mistakes. I have seen hussain posting Q47 with 15 mistakes or so. I am not sure still how got a low Q44 probably becoz of 5 mistakes in first 11
4. Lot of focus in quant goes to number properties.

Regarding verbal section this is alarm for me need to work hard on CR and SC.

Well, I think the the Q score of 44 with 11 mistakes in total is a bit harsh. But reason is pretty simple. You got 5 wrong is first 11 questions. Try to develop a time strategy using your results.

Any how, best of luck & keep us posted.
