Thanks for your comments,

I hope I will continue to help GMATclub members in future, lack of time doesn't allow to do many things at the same time.

Thanks again.

Seriously, the error log forum is great. People often think that practice makes perfect. However, as an athlete, I was taught that perfect practice makes perfect and I definitely see the relevance/applicability to my GMAT prep. The error log is a tool for helping you achieve perfect practice.

Give me some time I will write the consolidated changes in the post.

e.g. there was mistake in table of report page, there were the % of questions solved of particular type not the accuracy : so if you solved 10 questions of type "Assumption" and you missed all, so the accuracy should be 0% not the 100%.

I am editing the excel formulas again, give me some time.

Hi, it was clear. I understood what you want.
i am using spoilt error log v0.0.7 in my signature.
I use the notes field for this purpose. I write the question number in notes field. Add a auto filter in excel using DATA-FILTER-AUTO FILTER.
so we have source field . type field . Correct field. And number of question in notes field. Using filter i can easily filter it.
Try it it's easy.
please don't hesitate if you need more help. Sorry using my mobile otherwise i would have attached snapshot.

Hey Spoilt, this is awesome error-log! I'm using your v0.07 for your GMAT study.

I was wondering if you can integrate in an auto stopwatch function inside your sheet, so in that way users can have a better understanding on what types of questions he/she needs to really practice from a timing strategy perspective.

I attached an old error-log I downloaded long time ago from GMAT Club. It has the auto stopwatch function.

Yes sure why not. For the moment you can use GMATtimer by sir Walker - It's a very useful tool. I will check the source code in the attached excel and update log ASAP.

I am really glad to know that my error logs are useful to many GMAT club members for their preparation.

Please feel free to provide your valuable feedbacks and suggestions.

Hello Jasonlu1981 and GMATClub members,

I have updated the Spoilt Error Log V0.0.7 with timer functionality.
"TestGrid4GMAT_latest_version.xls" code was very complex and inefficient. I have used better, simple and efficient code.

To start timer you have to double click the 'Your Answer' Cell, select value and double click on 'OA' cell timer to stop. I can only attach 2 files in one post, so I have included snapshot in help page of the attached sheet. Try it !!!

Please don't hesitate if you need more help.

Changes:
1. Timer functionality included.
2. Updated Clear Log button. (button will be automatically deleted)

Hey Spoilt,

Apoligize I didn't get back to you soon. I was out of office on business trips, so I didn't check in GMAT Club recently.

Just tried this sheet, this is cool! But I feel that every now and then I have to double click twice for each question. It disturbs my thoughts, I couldn't concentrate as usual. If possible, can you set up to double click just at the very beginning and the very end when the tester finishs his last problem?

Thank you.

Here is my contribution to this cool contest.

I focused on building a user-friendly and simple to use application , rather than cracking hundreds of functions. Honestly, an error log won't make you any better by itself, it only will tell you in which areas you must work harder and in which areas you are rocking the house. And that's what my proposal does, no more no less.

I used similar colors to those of GMAT Club in order to help people feel comfortable using it while they spend the hours cracking questions through the forums.

Finally, my gmat exam is TOMORROW(!) so I hadn't plenty of time to do this. It's not an excuse for the contest, rather a promise that I will make it better afterwards. Some areas that can get improved are:
1) More thorough database
2) CAT-Specific sections
3) Decent help section
4) You decide it!

When the contest ended I'll open a new ""official"" threat for those who will be using it and want to implement some improvements.

So that's it:

Friendly Error Log v1 by Saruba

*Several warnings prompted up when saving the 2003 version, I'm not sure if it'll work fine!


Hi Saruba,
Your error log looks great. i am trying to use it but the cells are not editable. im sure im missing something. can you please briefly tell me the steps to use it.

Thanks,
SM
