Hi,

Great work guys! I'm just starting to study for my GMAT and decided to use the first error log (friendly error log by Saruba). I have a couple of (stupid) questions:
- What is OA? Is that the correct answer?
- How do I actually use it? Each question that I get wrong I enter into the log and then review the appropriate areas in the last 2 weeks? There is no field for page number or w/e, so how do I record that?

Thanks!

Hey nickk, thank your for using the friendly error log.

1) The OA is the Official Answer. As you say it is the correct answer.
2) The idea of the error log is to record your performance in order to get information of your weaknesses as well as to know the areas for improvement. In short, it helps to focus on the areas where you have more difficulties.
There's no page number because you don't necessarily need it, you can select the book you are using and the question you're referring. Eventually, I didn't consider correct questions to be included in the error log (in fact the name itself is just that).

This is a beta release so it's not perfect, maybe neither appropriate. There are some other error logs that seem to be more updated, maybe you find them more useful.
In case you didn't read about it, the password is 8887.

Good luck!

Hello nick,

It is updated and password is removed.

Saruba : I have already updated your error log (first page of this post)

i read through the entire thread, but i'm still a little confused (or maybe more confused?) because there were so many updates to the error logs. these are the conclusions that i've drawn:

1) saruba's friendly error log won.
2) spoilt then created the awesome error log which improves upon saruba's friendly error log?
3) the awesome error log is now the preferred choice?

will someone please correct me if i'm mistaken? thanks!


Hi username123, After Competition, I improved all 3 logs (Friendly_by_Saruba, Awesome_by_Saruba_Spoilt_Trianglock and my entry GMATClub Error Log )

1)Yes you are right - Saruba's friendly error log won.
2) No, the Awesome Error log(Created by Trianglock + updated by Spoilt) is combined result all three logs by Saruba, Spoilt and Trianglock.
3) All logs are preferred - use the one that is good for you. (Try it!!)

All suggestions are welcome, I will keep on updating the logs.

Hello username123,

Thanks for posting the error. I just checked and it appears for me too in .xlsm (office 2007 version). However, version .xls is working file. The problem is with microsoft conversion tool in older version.

use the version(.xls) i.e. GMATClub_Error_Log_V3.0.xls.

Hello username123,

I have checked this problem on microsoft support web http://support.microsoft.com/kb/274222

The problem is because MAC OS doesn't support activex control.

I have removed the activex control : Use the attached version. Timer will start when you double click on
"Your Answer" and will stop when you double click on any other column.

Please feel free to ask for any improvement : I will try my best to implement it.

Mac Version:

When do you guys fill out the log (at least the part about the inputted answer), during the exam after each question, or after completing the entire exam? To make use of the timer, I am guessing one would fill this out during the exam, but boy that would kill my concentration!

Thanks,

I have the exact same question!


That's true. However, for full length test(e.g. MGMAT, Kaplan) we don't have to worry about filling the answers. we can review the answers and time later.

For practice, OG / MGMAT Guides. I use the GMAT Club Log V3.0, I go on logging the "Answer" and logs automatically calculates the time for each question. I consider the time taken for logging the time same what it takes to press next/confirm answer in full length test.

Please let me know if you have any idea for improvement in logs.

Hi,

First of all, I would like to thank you guys for this effort. These are awesome tools.

I have been using the awesome_log, and so far it has been great... I just have one thing that I would like to change... I want to add more options into the areas and subareas of the quant and verbal categories... but when I add extra fields in the database tab... they don't show as valid options in the quant and verbal log. Could I get some instructions on how to add new fields so they become available options in the actual logs??

Another excel thing I would like to do and that seems to have been supressed... how do I make the cells to autoadjust their size in order to see the whole sentence that I write down?? or even more basic... how do I move the margins of the columns or rows??

Regards and thanks again!!

you should be able to double click the line in between two column headers. this should make the columns auto-adjust to see the entire sentence. single click and drag allows you to pick the width yourself.



I understand what you are saying, but this spreadsheet has the headers hidden... so I can't click in between them to autoadjust the size. I think I would have to unhide the headers, but I don't know how...

Which template can be imported into Google Docs and be used online easily?

I keep all my docs on google now and am hoping there is a way to track log in there as well. It's very convenient to use any computer and practice questions.


Another thing is about question number. After finishing OG12, I'm switching to VG, should I manually overwrite the question number as 1 and then go from there?

Thanks for the awesome log. It's GREAT!

It's a bit confusing that the "Awesome Error Log" is made by "by Spoilt & Trianglock". I'd swear that looks quite similar to an error log I made a while ago..
