I realize that the Error log is an essential component of GMAT success. However, I want to know exactly how to apply it in our study prep. Specifically, are we supposed to use it with the 0G practice? Or with the gmat prep/ CAT practice tests? Do we log each question seperately or at the end of each prep day to analyze our errors ? Are we supposed to have several logs or just one log with all questions attempted? Basically, what is the detailed specific way of doing the Error Log?

P.S. My study routine is largely based on the MGMAT books and 0G.

Have you seen this post?

The concept behind Error log is that you use it for EVERY wrong/guessed question you encounter.
Some even use it for every single question to keep the ratio of right/wrong questions, but I found that too detailed.

I took bb's advice on doing this instead of an error log: Create a binder and put problems that give you trouble (along with answers) in it. Then review the binder from time to time.

I tried starting an error log, but it's just too much busy work for me to analyze that I got some SC question wrong b/c of a parallelism issue. If I got it wrong or thought the problem was tough, I put it into the binder.

When I finish practice exams now, I just review the exam from beginning to end and just make general mental notes for myself (i.e. I got 6/15 CR wrong this time. I really need to work on all aspects of this.).
