walker,

as you know, I already have this toolkit. I am eying a score in the 700+ range. I am debating whether I should buy Gmatclub's test or Jeff Sackmann's extreme challenge set. This toolkit already has 111 hard quant questions, and it doesn't seem like that the questions are repeated from m01 or m25.

Would you say that these 111 hard quant questions should suffice for practicing 48+ level questions? I think at a certain point, analysis of answers is more helpful than practicing.

as always, thanks for your great work.

Hi Therockobama,

111 hard questions were selected from GMAT Club's tests on the base of statistics we have for a couple of years.
From my experience, understanding of concepts is what really important in quant. So, sometimes I spent a lot of time on one hard question in order to grasp a new concept. In my case it was probabilities/combinatorics. Try this way with 111 hard questions, if you see improvements, keep going and GMAT Club tests will be helpful, if not, just try something else.

Best,
Walker

Sorry, no. Only for iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad so far...

By the way, Apple have approved 1.3.5 update. I'm waiting for your feedback on the tag cloud!

Best,
Walker

Just bought it. Great App.
Really neat how it can collect questions from the forum. How does it work? I don't see any forum post parameter for answer to questions. Are these accurate (at least as much as the original post)?

Hi Oddys4,

OA is accurate as much as original post. The app adds a question only if there is information about OA inside a thread. Otherwise, the app just ignores the question. For example, if there is a string like "OA is B" or "OA: B", the app uses B as OA for the question.

If you have any other ideas/thoughts, please, let us know

Best,
Walker

Got it. What does the percentage indicate when it's trying to collect the posts?

Believe it or not I bought the iPod touch partly because of this app. Doesn't disappoint so far.

That's music to Walker's ears.
The ratio during post collection is successful imports vs. total posts inspected.

Hi, Oddys4!

I hope you won't be disappointed! If you have any question, just pm me.

When you see something like 34/111 that means 34 questions have added from the forum out of 111 posts. Not all posts have OA and not all posts have ABCDE structure.

Didn't see bb's post

I have the GMAT toolkit and want to give fellow club members a look into how it works. When you open the app it shows several icons giving you a choice of 10 options. One can use the timer to time themselves through original guide tests. Then they will be creating their error log and time per question at the same time. There is an idiom generator in which you can shale through many random idioms to help you bring your verbal score up. There is a list of seven math principles that are explained in a clear and concise manner. One icon says Sets and when opened has apparently 347 problems which are derived from the Hard Quant set at this club as well as questions from Manhattan Review. It is also possible to add your own questions through GMAT club forums. In addition there is and RSS feed and access to the forums here. This is an excellent app. I would recommend GMAT clubbers who own an iphone or ipod touch get it. The timer function and ability to sort questions is very useful.

Thanks,
Skip

Hi Skipjames,

Thanks for your short review and words, they keep us motivated to move ahead!
Let me ask you one question: if you could add only one thing to GMAT ToolKit, what would you add? What would be the most helpful?

Thanks,
Walker

Walker,
Thanks again. I think the app is great. I would probably add a help icon with directions to walk the owner through the app. It is just a little intimidating seeing all that is there at first.

Thanks!

Yeah, you are right. If somebody decides to take GMAT and buy the app, it's not clear at what point you need to start, what is important....
I think we will add help section in next updates and probably diagnostic test too.

Best,
Walker

Thanks Serhio,

Let me know if we miss something important for you.
We are changing a lot inside of the app now, changing internal infrastructure. It's not easy, but when we've done, we will add many useful features.

Hi - I bought this app a week ago. Very useful. I like it. One suggestion/question I have: When I do a verbal/Math/Customize exam, I don't see an option to choose whether my answer is correct or wrong. So to grade my exam, I have to write it on a paper or email the answers and grade it seperate on a paper or computer. If the option to grade the results in the app is available, I think it will be very useful. Since the results are saved, knowing how one performed in each exam, will help us get better and improve performance. Makes sense?

Thanks!

Got it!

You mean the Timer. Right? I will add grade functionality in next update. It's a good idea.

Thanks for suggestion. If you have any other idea/thought, just let me know.

Walker

Yes, timer. When will be the new version come out? I hope soon. Don't delay please. I am addicted to the tool/timer except for the grading piece of it. Grading is pain in the back... More than the exam, I feel like I am doing more mistakes in grading test

Surely, will let you know if there are any other improvements that can be made.
