Thanks "heel289", +1!

Any way you can save as an Excel 2003 file for those of us whose employers are XP-oriented Luddites?

Here is the macro-enabled workbook format, which includes my modifications to the Awesome Error Log V 3.0 by Saruba, Spoilt, and Trianglock. The modifications include adding in the verbal time tables and graphs plus extra sheets to show verbal and quant subarea accuracy and timing. I hope the original macros stayed in tact, as I can't be sure because I am working on a mac. The macros are just bells and whistles anyway. I would say this should count as Awesome Error Log V 4.0 but I'll leave that up to the original creators to decide.

Hello guys!

I'd like to start that this forum is awesome. It's very helpful source in the long and not always easy way to succeed in GMAT. ))

Now, about Error logs. I didn't spend a lot of time to choose an Error log among the available files. I thought (and still think) they are all great. But when I try to use the first one (Friendly_error_log) I found that not all statistics there are reasonable. There are some errors in formulas in the Verbal Stats sheet, Question by issue part. There are references to the Quant log sheet. So, it would be great if someone add proper formula and upload the file to this forum.

I do always check my errors directly and just mark the question in my material as wrong. After one week, I redo the wrong questions checking if I still get them wrong ...

In most error logs, it is not possible to specify where exactly the question is coming from. For example in the Friendly Error Log, I can mentiont he source, let's say Kaplan, but cannot specify where in Kaplan, which page which number. can someone please help me understand?

Hi

I use the first error log - friendly_error_log_v2_by_saruba.xls but when ever I enter details in the spreadsheet it wont give me any graphs.

Please suggest how to resolve it.

Thank you guys for wonderful contribution.

I have a quick question if you don't mind (on the winner error log).

How to change the data validation list on any cell. On the data validation it says =subQ for example. How can I change what is in SubQ?

Thanks,
Raj

I am stoked to see the error log brought to life in true analytic fashion. I've been tracking my errors on paper, but this is another world entirely. Much appreciated.

Complete noob here at the moment, just ordered my material (OG, MGMT, GMAT Club Grammar, Kaplan Premier) and putting everything together.

Why do none of the error logs include a place to include the actual question number? I see "source", "answer given" and "OA", but nowhere to record the actual question number. Am I blind?

Otherwise, incredibly useful tool! Will definitely be using one of these.

I am using "friendly_error_log_v2_by_saruba.xls". It is really a good tool to keep track of my performance (question practice) in GMAT prep. I inputted data of around 300 questions in it.
Recently, I have come across the "Awesome_Error_Log_V2.1.xls", which actually is capable of quenching my thirst of info needs/data analysis even better.
Now, my issue of dilemma is: Should I keep using the SAME error log (friendly_error_log_v2_by_saruba.xls) that I have been using for last two months and that has some pitfalls (IMO) instead of using the more efficient one OR should I start using the NEW error log (Awesome_Error_Log_V2.1.xls) from now on that has a better way of serving information?

Looking forward to your valuable comments/suggestions/inputs.

Thanks!

Hi,

I am currently using the MGMAT Archer because I reckon it is easier. I am wondering, whether there is a tool similar to the MGMAT ARCHER?

I like the fact that you just choose your answer from A-E in the OG books and the MGMAT archer will automatically know what topic that question covers.

I tried the error logs here very briefly, and I noticed that it doesn't work the same way. Is there anything like that? I'll need it for my OG-Quant Version1 of the book.

Hi All,

I'm relatively new to the site but am really impressed.

I just downloaded an error log and while I get the idea I imagine there is a best way to use this in studying. Could someone point me in the direction of a post that elaborates on using the error log effectively or explain?

Hi,

I am trying to use the error log and have entered the data. But somehow stats are not getting generated for me in the error log. Does anyone know what am I supposed to do to get the stats? I am using "Awesome Error log 2.1" on MS Excel 2007.
