Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
+ Problem Solving autoscan + More SC and CR questions available through autoscan (2500+) + timer for GMAT Club's forum + "smart" idle mode for the Set + "guess" option and sorting in the Timer + "Previous" & "Next" buttons in the Idioms + A "shake" gesture make it easy to repeat last action in the Idioms. + "Percents" for the Math tool + fixed numeration for the OG Quant 1 book + fixed the problem with remembering last question.
great job, walker. thanks. I am sorry I did not reply to your questions. It would be nice to have the sort and guess option for the "books" section as well, but for now, current updates will do. It would be easy to re-solve the problems (incorrect/guessed/time consuming) right there from the app, rather than e-mailing and sorting in Excel.
And it probably is out of the scope of this application, but may be, just may be, these problematic problems can be given a "second-chance" to isolate any pattern that the user may have, meaning we would be able to compare the results from the first-try and from the second-try. I am imagining a screen like this:
Q Try 1 Try 2 1 A B 2 A A
Also, may be someone (I will try) can create a web-service that will hook-up (from the app itself) these results and provide analytics, at least for OGs, on those results using tracking tools.
I have noticed one problem in the books section: while the timer is on, if I, by mistake, tap on the numbers on the right-hand side, the app will take me to that tapped number, but will not allow me (using up-down swipes) to go back to the question that I was solving. So I have to stop the timer, get out of the section, and re-start the timer at my original question.
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.
If you found my comments here helpful, please give kudos. Thanks, Skip
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?
While answering CR for OG11, I received a phone call that lasted 6 minutes. When I went back to continue where i left off, all of my attempts were deleted. I have experienced this before with different sections, but wasn't sure because those sections had previous attempts. This time however it was noticeable because I have just started the CR in OG11.
1.4.0 update with iPad support is still in review but we keep going.
We are working on 1.4.1 update. What will be new? + landscape orientation for iPad + more questions and information from our top tier partners + tag search in the Books. + font adjusting + maybe something else We still have a lot of ideas to implement!
Tomorrow we are going to submit 1.4.5 update that brings "Custom sets" functionality (for iPhone so far). So, it will be possible to add questions from your own sets into GMAT ToolKit.
