1. Member Profile
(User Control Panel -> Options -> Profile)
Your GMAT Club profile can be customized in order to contain the information you would like to share with other members. Here is a short list of profile fields you might want to change:

A. Schools and GMAT Score
(User Control Panel -> Options -> Profile)
If you are already applying to Business Schools, you are welcome to let other members know what are those schools and what is the status of your applications. You might want to use coloring (t74316-what-are-the-school-colors-and-how-to-change-them). Stating your GMAT score (total score as well as Verbal and Math scores) is also a good idea (especially if you want to gain more respect :)).

Difficulty is subjective and there is no way to accurately measure it really. The original poster or other members can adjust it but it depends on the perception of the poster really...

Thanks for the post! It was a great eye-opener...
I wonder if there is a setting where you can limit the number of e-mails you get from a thread that you have posted in to just an e-mail a day? As opposed to getting an e-mail everytime there is a new response?

Hi! Can someone please tell me whether my workbook ('My workbook' page) has a provision to view the answer that I chose for a practice question?

You are asking if there is a way to see "A", "B" etc?

Right now it shows correct or incorrect most users prefer this approach since it allows them to retake the questions without knowing or seeing the correct answer.

Let me know if you have suggestions or questions.

Yes bb. If the original option that I chose while attempting the question is visible, I would be able to keep track of repeat mistakes. Also, if I make a mistake in a question that I previously answered correct, I would know that the first time was a fluke and that I still need more practice on the concept.

I know I can use an error log, but workbook is an amazing integrated feature and I think it would be nice to have the error or answer log in the same tool.

Is it possible to have a hide-able column? An option to hide would allow the users to view the column only when they want to.
Or, a feature that would display the last three answer choices in chronological order on hovering the mouse on the red-green square boxes.

Also, like how it is done in GmatPrep can we have a 'mark for review' option in the question tool - to review a correctly answered tough question later?

I am sorry if I am suggesting too many things :|
