GMAT Error Log- Confused Newby [#permalink]

Hi Folks,

I see on the website numerous mentions of error logs and understand why tracking things that I have done wrong would be useful, but I'm not understanding how exactly I'm supposed to make use of this utility.

It appears that the "Saruba" error log is well regarded. Once I open it up, it appears populated with data already- are these simply examples of how to use it? Am I supposed to erase those entries and put my own in as I make mistakes, and then the spreadsheet will populate the other pages?

Sorry for the bone-headed post- I'm just confused about how I'm actually supposed to use it, and how the utility is tracking and analyzing things for me.

Thanks,
Rick

An error log is simply tracking your work and "seeing" where your trouble areas are. The link you are looking at shows templates for error logs (we had a competition to see who could come up with the best template). The goal is to figure out WHY you are making certain mistakes. We approach problems slightly differently, and if you have a fundamental flaw in how you approach a problem (the way you think), you need to actively overcome this flaw.

I'm a simple man. I used a paper and pen with a legend to mark certain problems (problems I narrowed down, problems I guessed, problems incorrect, etc.). Some people like big spreadsheets.
