Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I have a gold membership, actually renewed recently. The most useful thing on there are the student surveys and the employee surveys. Lots of salary info, and a great way to learn about different companies/industries from the people who actually work there.
I know they list a bunch of other stuff as being "perks" of Gold membership, but the surveys were really the only part that I found useful, although I thought they alone were worth the cost.
I think the student surveys were interesting to me when I first read them because I hadn't spent anytime on GmatClub or BW forums. Now that I've seen all the resources on these forums, I don't think the student surverys offer much more.
But I think Vault's industry and job information is excellent. The salary surveys are really interesting, and I would say all that info is worth the Gold membership fee.
