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.

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.

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,

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.

Did you scroll up on the Stats Tab of the spreadsheet?
If that does not help, Post your error log here for me to take a look.

Well, we have this tool too: gmat-club-guide-to-the-gmat-official-guide-12th-ed-85956.html

I think it may be helpful to combine the two to get the same functionality that Archer has but then why copy? Isn't it free on MGMAT?

Hi BB,

Thanks for looking into the matter.

Please find attached file. I did scroll up and try couple of things before I posted on this forum.

To your question about Macro, I was enabling using the option that comes on top of the file when one opens the file for the first time. I am not sure if there is another way of enabling Macros in an Excel file.

Attached file has few entries, some with all the details whereas others with few details missing. But I think I have enough number of entries to generate stats.

After I clicked on verbal button to generate stats, the whole Excel sheet turned red, and one row I noticed was grey. I am not sure if it was trying to point me to an error that I made while entering the data.

Please let me know if you spot any problems in the file.

Sure. One issue I can see right now is the column for "Correct/Incorrect" has a wrong formula (or actually none at all)

For the first line/answer It should be: =IF(ISBLANK(F5),"",IF(F5=L5,1,0))

Not sure how it got lost.... once you fix that, it should start working. if not, we can keep debugging but I think it may be easier to download a fresh copy and start over...

Hey guys, I have a question.

I have completed my first MGMAT Strategy Guide all the way. I made my own quasi error log which is actually made as a Word document (extremely dumb of me not to think of Excel, I'll admit). When I did those practice problems from MGMAT that are linked to OG 12, I wrote down in the document each problem I did not solve correctly, as well as the descriptions of why was my answer wrong and what area of number properties it is.

So as you can see, I have recently started studying for GMAT. My question is, is this error log made for those who are doing the prep tests, or is it also for starters like me? Or in other words, is this usable for me at the moment?

I am asking this because it might be easier for me to convert now to one of the error logs than it would be later in the game.

[Edit]: Oh, and great job to the authors of the logs, I really appreciate the effort.

Some of these error logs are for advanced users (sometimes too advanced).
Your goal should be to have a list of all your questions (answered incorrectly or you want to save them for future). Your goal is to use spreadsheets, word docs, napkins, books, etc - anything works.

Thanks for the info bb.

Do you think you can you could recommend me an error log from this forum. I am decent in Excel but I am not advanced. However, I am always willing to learn unless it is not going to take away too much of my time.

I would say use/pick one that you can manage and takes the least time to worry about.

Here are all kinds of Error Logs - you pick one. I just used a folder where I put all of my questions (print outs or copies) into to review later.

How to use & Purpose

The purpose of an error log is to keep track of your mistakes. You can use one of these fancy spreadsheets, you can use your own doc, GMAT ToolKit, or you can just mark the questions you got wrong in your book. The goal is the same - to build a list of questions that are problematic for you. Usually, you would exclude anything that you have missed by pure careless error (for example, confused answer choices) but you do want to have here all other questions you missed. Why? Because these questions are what you want to review at the end of the week and perhaps every month. You also want to save them for the last week (especially the ones that you missed twice).

If one of these spreadsheets is too fancy for you, just get your own error log/timer/etc - the key is to keep track of your weaknesses and mistakes and then to attack them. No spreadsheet can do the studying for you though.

I tried adding topics in quant in the DB but it is not reflecting in the drop down in the quant error log worksheet.

Kindly help.

hi,

when doing problems and using an error log, how do you time yourself? do you do a problem say in 2 minutes, then immediately after the problem do you write down whether you knew the answer or if it was a silly mistake or if you were stuck between 2 choices. or do you do say 10 problems all timed, then when checking answers go back and try to remember your thought process.

i'm just trying to get the most efficient way to use the error log and keep track of stuff, but it seems like even using the error log is very time intensive and would take away from studying.

i'd be open to anyone's thoughts or techniques on maximum efficiency for error logs

thank you

Just use a stopwatch and write down your time and comments after every answer. It's not hard, but you're right it is tedious. The comments are invaluable however. Especially for answers you got right but were lucky and need to review the concept.

I had the same question but I just found out:

1. Go to the db sheet (database) and in the Quant Areas column add the new topics that you want to include in the drop-down list (below the ones that are already there)

2. Go to the Quant Log sheet and select the cell that you want to add more topics to the drop-down list (you will want to select all the cells in the quant Area column)

3. With those cells selected: On the Data tab, in the Data Tools group, click Data Validation.

4.In the Data Validation dialog box, click the Settings tab.

5.In the Allow box, click List.

6.Specify the location of the list of valid entries, doing the following: click in the Source box and then select the cells that contain the quant topics in the db sheet.

7. Click OK and you're ready to go!


Let me know if it worked for you or if you have any questions.


Consider giving me Kudos if this post was helpful. :-D

I love saruba's error log.

I would like to suggest one addition that I tried out for myself.
I would add a column in the "Quant log" and "Verbal log" showing "x" for all wrong answered questions.

Source Choice OA Wrong Issue Type
GMATPrep 1 C C Knowledge gap PS
GMATPrep 1 C E X Not sure PS
GMATPrep 1 E C X Careless PS
GMATPrep 1 C C Tough DS

You can see really quickly which questions were wrong.
But other than that. Just great!
