:) Then I assume that's not what you were looking for. Do you mind explaining/providing an example/diagram/etc of what you were thinking about?
That would help me get to it faster.

Thank you again for your input and suggestions!

bb,

My point is to have the relevent questions handy. If I surf the above link (by tags) then I have to individually open the questions to read and solve. But, if I have all the questions then I can try to solve them, say in set of 20 ques, and if I need to refer GC then I can quickly search it here. This also helps in gaining speed. For example:

GMAT Section = DS From Date To Date File format(u need)= MS Word

This selection search will retrieve all the DS questions (no replies) in the given time range. This way it will be easy for me to practice and get a good hold on quality questions.

I hope you understand now.

How about matching your response with what majority has responded for a question?

Whenever someone posts some question and people want to respond with their choice of A/B/C/D/E. If someone presses the option and selects confirm then he can be shown in what range his/her resonse falls :) One will be able to know how many selected which option A/B/C/D/E. Similarly, ones responses to all answered questions can be maintained by the online system where one can check for what percentage of question did one answered correctly. Categorised performance (SC, CR, RC, PS, DS) will be crucial part of this strategy. So, one can judge not only performance, but also accuracy, question difficulty level, week/strong areas, etc.

PS: There should be an option to mention the correct answer while posting a new question.


Thank you!!!
This is definitely worth exploring.

Thank you! Really appreciate your suggestions.

This is exactly the concept we had with GMAT Club Challenges back in 2004.
Every time we released a new test, we invited people to take the test for a certain time period. That was not super successful back then; people prefer to study on their own schedule.

Comments of course are welcome for those who disagree.

Its been 6 yrs now.
It's Easiest to start something but Hardest to maintain/manage it. I call it PATIENCE.

Its true what people choose to prepare but some definitly wants to test their metal.
Count me among those.

bb,

This is a valid point your raised. But, I think if people are posting problems here then those must be a difficult enough. I hope atleast the posted questions are of 600-700 difficulty level and thats the level everyone wants to achieve. May be more than that.

Moreover, we have the respective forum moderator who can pour in their sugestion to rank the difficulty level and place it in the correct category.

Hi,

This post is regarding the GMAT Timer. It's a great tool to monitor your score.

If possible can we customize it so that we can set the time limit for each question and if we do not select an answer during that then our response will not be considered. It will skip to the next question. A user will not be able to edit the responses once it is skipped.
A user can set, if he/she wants to go with method, else the regular if fine fo him.



Are you referring to this timer: gmat-timer-56014.html or the timer in the questions in the forum?

bb,

I am referring to the one developed by Walker (gmat-timer-56014.html).

Moreover, there should be an option to set the time limit for sectional tests. Say, I want to do SC for 30 min. Right now, I have to look at the timer for around 6-7 times to meet with the timings. So, there should be some editable fields for such cases.

today i wrote m01; it was great experience. Few days back i wrote GMATPrep, and while writing m01, i felt like i was writing prep again vow great questions :)
i have one small observation about review of question. while reviewing i have to press "Explain Answer" for each question, if i am interested to see explanation of each question( right/wrong). So my suggestion is, If "Explain Answer" is "mode" in stead of a "state" then just clicking next question i can see the explanation. Similarly for the "Show Answer" option. however, "Check Answer" can be maintained as "state". I do not know how much this will help for others, but i would love this feature in these tests where i need to review each question( as each question carry some very basic information which i need to remember ) thanks

Number of times, I have found some posts to check later but forget to read them again. Moreover, I think we need to have a status update reflecting, for a reply to your post/those posts to which you have replied, besides your View your post link, just like the Inbox reflects how many unread mails you have.

Please let me know if it is available and the steps to set these settings.



Thank you very much for the suggestion!
I do not believe we can set the topic to be unread.

As to replies, you should get an email notification every time someone replies to your message - do you get those or did you mean something else?

Hi BB

sometimes I use this site from my office using different laptop. So I have to search for some posts which are not bookmarked on it but are on my home laptop.

Is there any way I can bookmark them on my Gmatclub account.

I remember there was a Phpbb bookmark Mod, I don't remember for which version it was compatible.

bb,

We don't have a CR tag for Method of Reasoning based questions.

For example, two speakers are mentioned in the question and both have their own argument. Question stem asks:
1. What is the relationship b/w speaker1 and speaker2?
2. What method of reasoning is reflected by speaker1 in support/against wrt to speaker2?....There can be more such types.

I know that this type of question is unusual on GMAT but it's an important one to polish your skills on other CR types as it involves the complete framework of argument.



Sure, I am adding it right now.
Thank you.
