GMAT Timer



I've written a simple timer (for Windows XP, Vista) for GMAT. It will definitely be useful in preparation.
12/29/2010 Please, use it as it is. I won't support it at least for the near future. If you need a more sophisticated timer, please, take a look at the GMAT ToolKit (iPhone/iPod Touch application).
If somebody wants to improve it, I will find and send you source files (CodeGear, Delphi) Thanks, Walker.

No sounds?
control panel-> sounds and audio devices-> sounds tab-> check if the sound scheme is selected to "No sounds" , instead it should be selected to "Windows default".







Other Timer Resources useful for the GMAT






As of 6/2010, we have a Timer built into the GMAT Club Question Forums:

See this discussion for more details and a demo.

It provides you with a list of all the questions you attempted!

Hi Walker,

I think GMATtimer for both iPhone and Blackberry is good idea.

Us Linux users barely read RAR files, and EXE files of course... But thanks. Let me install a Windows emulator (WINE), maybe your program would run on top of it.


Firstly, WINE is not a windows emulator.... that's what it stands for (Wine Is Not an Emulator) )) -
Quote:
"Wine is a translation layer (a program loader) capable of running Windows applications on Linux and other POSIX compatible operating systems. Windows programs running in Wine act as native programs would, running without the performance or memory usage penalties of an emulator, with a similar look and feel to other applications on your desktop."


Secondly, just wanted to let all non-windows users know that GMAT timer runs perfectly on Wine (and it's polished paid version - Crossover)

Wine is free and Mac Users can load it here

Linux users I assume know all about wine anyway, if not I'll gladly provide help.)))

Hi Walker
Can you make the timer countdown rather than count up.
Countdown would simulate the actual exam ..
Just a suggestion


:done


Hi Walker,

Thanks for the timer. Gr8 work.

can you give a option to enter the total number of questions and make the timer work accordingly (in quant and verbal both) .

a small suggestion :-D

Thanks for suggestion!

I don't have Delphi on my computer to do that but I have iPhone SDK and am going to use your idea for iPhone Timer.

First of all I'd like to thank you for this program that helps a lot of people in their preparation for GMAT. It's great!


Thanks!

Nevertheless my first use of this program wasn't lucky: I solved almost all verbal section, pushed pause and went away, when I was back my laptop was unable to awake from suspend mode, and I lost all results! :cry: If I used Excel (+timer) for this purpose it wouldn't happen cause Excel makes temporary files and saves data in a stated period of time (that I can change in options).
May be it's better to save each answer to a txt file i.e. update txt file each time user answers to a question?


Yeah, it is a great suggestion! I hope I will find time to install Delphi on my computer and improve the Timer. At least now, I have a good reason to do so.

P.S. and one more improvement that can be made in this program - adding a hot key ("P" or "blank") for pausing.

Ok. It would be useful.

+1 for suggestions.

Hi Walker

I am using the GMAT Timer not only for timing paper tests, but also for my daily practice. The only problem I face while practicing is, I have to reset the timer after 37 questions of Quant (or 41 questions of Verbal). If you are planning to enhance the timer anyways, could you please change it to accept number of questions and countdown timing as user input?


Thanks for suggestion. I've realized all this functionality in iPhone/iPod GMAT ToolKit Timer. I hope I will find time in Chicago to add features you request to Windows GMAT Timer.

Walker,

Just an advise. If you could add the total time taken as another counter.. I know we can calculate by deducting time left by the 75 mins.. But again its just a suggestion..

Anywayz, great job buddy :)

It is possible to look at average time per question that should be something around 1 min. By the way, in GMAT ToolKit (for iPhone/iPod) you be able to set up custom number of question and time.
