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:

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

How about an option where the user has the option to set intervals of time limited by a beep or something. Let's say that I want to pratice one-minute sentence corrections. Then, I could set up walker's cool gmat timer to beep every minute (or even better, to warn me at 55 secs, then beep at 60 secs). What do you think?

Good idea.

Thought I'd share my own version of the GMAT timer. Its in excel. I will not say that it is completely bug free. Try at your own risk...

Some hints to use it:

1. It has two tabs - 'test' tab where you take the actual test and the 'test summary' tab where you can copy and paste the results of your test from the 'test tab' for analysis (there is a sample 'test summary' tab, showing it the way i used it).
2. Test tab has four buttons:
a. Passage - click on it when you start reading a passage (yes, i kept track of my time on passages separately) and click on it one more time when you are done reading the passage (alternately, you can use Shift+P to register start time and end time separately).
b. Qtime - When you hit this button after you are done with your test, it will give you the time/Q in the column 'Time/Q'
c. Start - Hitting the button starts your clock. It is automatically set to 75 min. However, say you are doing only 10 Q's and you want to time yourself for 15 min, you can click on the 'green' cell which displays the time and enter your time.. It will then count down from that time. However, the next time you take the test, it will reset itself to 75 min
d. Stop - Hitting the button stops the clock - you might want to do this after you are done with the test ahead of time.

The columns are self explanatory...You can register your ans by clicking on the column under the header 'Quant' for the Quant section. After you key in a choice, hit 'Enter' and it will go to the next cell below (a.k.a next Q). The columns with header 'Time/Q' will show the time you took to answer a Q only after you complete the test and hit the 'QTime' button (set it up that way so that I wont be distracted while taking the test).
The column 'RC' will show the time for each passage that you had to complete (if you record the time correctly using the passage button or 'Ctrl+P' - you need to click twice - once to start the clock for the passage and one to stop it. otherwise, it might give you some wacky time!)

Happy testing!

Anyone need a timer for an Apple Computer?

This program is good because you can set it to 2 min, when it will give you a short beep sound and then recycle for another 2 min countdown, and on and on. The bad side is that I think you can only set it for 1 min increments (1 min 45 sec, for example, is not possible)

This program is good too but I haven't found a button to make it recycle yet. However, you can set it to any countdown time that you wish.

Hopefully this helps someone.

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.

Erm... I hope this year we will make a study guide compilation like this available on the Wiki. It is good to have the stickies but it is not very systematic.

Hello-

This sounds like a great tool but I am having trouble with the file- Can someone email it to me at Hardaway7@aol.com?

I am saving it as a .rar but for some reason it won't run! Not sure why - any suggestions?

Walker what language did u use to write this? If I have free time this year (after GMAT and applications), I might look into a java app for mobile phones. So people can practice SC and CR on the go (the rest require more screen realestate and pen and paper).

Walker I see you mention the timer is for XP - does that mean it won't run on Vista, or is it worth giving it a shot? cheers.

walker, your application is great. I wasn't expecting something like that.

Since you are asking for wishes... How about an option where the user has the option to set intervals of time limited by a beep or something. Let's say that I want to pratice one-minute sentence corrections. Then, I could set up walker's cool gmat timer to beep every minute (or even better, to warn me at 55 secs, then beep at 60 secs). What do you think?

But again, a really useful feature. Thanks a lot! It's weid. On my way to work today I was thinking I needed to get a stop watch or something. You just saved me a buck or two.[/img]

Thanks walker !!

I think this post should be made sticky.

PS - since you were asking about bugs - in the verbal section there are 42 questions not 37.

Hi KS. i was about to post about the same *problem* that you saw on the timer until i discovered that the number of questions changes once you start the Verbal timer. otherwise it remains as 37.

PS. KS. i guess number of questions on V is 41.
