Guys,

We need someone to improve a bit the Walker's Timer. All of us will appreciate your innitiative. I am a barbarian in Delphi and other programming languages. :lol:

The idea is to add a tick-mark under each answer choice, which would mean your second choice (very often, one after eliminating 3 wrong answer choices struggles between remaining two, which are both good contenders). For example tickmark B, but the first choice is A. If there is no second contender just leave a tickmark blank.
From technical point of view I think it is not so dificult to implement. There must be a restriction for only one tickmark :) I mean there are often only two good contenders, from which one is correct and one is wrong.

It would be very useful tool when it comes to analysing own mistakes, and shows you whether you thoughts and doubts were close enough to the correct answer choice. This will help you to improve your solving skills and accuracy.

pls pm me for more details if required.

Hi, Thanks for the wonderful tool.
I have been using it for a while now.

But I have encountered some issues it it at times. The timer increases the "time available" to something random like 2400.
has anyone else faced this?

I have never seen timer while solving problems. Is it built in? How to reactivate it? looks like i have deactivated it.
Please tell me how to see built in timer.
I went through the thread somebody wrote that it is on the first thread. But going through it, I am finally driven to this thread :(

OK. Can we track time spent for each question while answering? How do we find out if we have exceeded the 2 min mark for a given question? Do we need to note down the time at the start of the question and keep monitoring it while answering the question?

no.
you will see only a countdown timer for the whole section. the timer shows the remaining time.
It is up to you how you trace the remainning time.
the most useful is to keep in mind that there are only 2 min per question. so if you are dealing with the 20th question on your timer you must see 75-20*2=35 minutes remaining.

I am spending 4 mins on some of the questions but only 1:30 on some questions. Is this a normal phenomenon?

I wish I could give walker 100 kudos for this.

At least 1 must give now!

+1 to walker!

Just one question. Given that all the practice CAT softwares have in-built timer, what are the best options to use this software for? Any inputs?
