It will be great, if anyone taking the gmat prep can fill the results in input sheet & paste the snapshots of the analysis sheets on this thread. This will help all of us in having an overview of different score patterns.

Re: GMAT Prep Analysis Tool [#permalink]
Am I correct?

1. Verbal depletes the score faster than the Quant.

2. more than 10 mistakes in Verbal. Astalavista Baby!. Do the gmat again ! Ohh what a CAT

3. Initial 15 questions matter the most in both sections.

4. Final 7 questions matter the least in both sections.

Nice work Hussain! +1

I'm uploading screen shots of my analysis for everyone to see. I took GMATPrep back on Feb 09. You can see how I bombed the Quant with so many mistakes in the first 13 questions. I also think I had more than usual DS questions. And 3 of the 4 RC had only 3 questions. I personally prefer to have more questions for each passage, to make up the reading time.

Hussain, there is a small mistake in the Verbal chart in the Analysis1 page, the range of last questions is 31-41 instead of 31-37.

A small suggestion: it would be great to see in the chart how many DS or PS were wrong, and how many SC, CR and RC were wrong. I also include this questions in my error log, but just in case if anyone wants to quickly see which type of questions had more trouble with during the test.

Good point cano, but i would suggest just to disclose this info just in writeen without graphs as it would be too much graph info.

You are right, that would be the best way. +1
I didn't mean to make a separate graphic. But anyways iIf the current graphic is too full of info then maybe the best place is in nearby cells below the Analysis2 # of Q Graphic.

If members will post their screen shots so we could compare to each other, it would be good to have the number of wrong questions each had. Even when having the same number of wrong questions doesn't mean the same score, it would reflect more convincingly how adaptive the GMATPrep is. For example, I had 17 mistakes in the verbal section and someone else had also 17, then comparing in which sub range of questions each had the mistakes will give us the difference in the verbal score, and we can see the limits of each score for a given number of mistakes.

The real challenge will be to gather the data from each member and make a big spreadsheet comparing all the results. But first we need the individual analysis. Please collaborate!

Thanks for pointing. I have fixed the typo.

I am working on your suggestion. Will revert back & update soon!

Typo error fixed & a new analysis sheet is added showing the count of correct/incorrect answers of each question type.

Do let me know if it serves the purpose.
