Hi bb,

I noticed that the calendar on the top of the screen includes customized deadline/result dates for the schools in my profile. Awesome!

Is there any way to incorporate the schools' dates with the rest of the calendar? Right now it goes Jan 1-31 of events and then Jan 1-31 of school results. It'd be great if these could be combined together in chronological order.

Also, thoughts on including schools events and admit weekends to the calendar? I know collecting that data would be a rather manual process, but given the number of posts on GC, it shouldn't be too hard to find.

Thanks!

Thought of in part due to the "how do I stop getting emails" thread -- can we include a list of all the threads one is subscribed to in the profile section somewhere? That way, if you want to unsubscribe from 1 or more topics, you can do so all in one place instead of having to go to each individual topic and unsubscribe from each?

Hello!
I feel that the Tags(Identifying the Topic, like Weaken,Assumption,Subject-Verb Agreemenr,etc) for Questions on the SC/RC forum,pre-emptively give away what the question is about. For example, If i read a question and the tag on top says that it is an Assumption question/A modifier Problem, I feel it gives a minor hint ,which won't be present during the actual exam. Maybe we could hide the tags(atleast the topic) and display it only when a user wants to see it.
Thanks.

Yes, the free tests are NOT CAT's and they are present (meaning the same set of questions is presented for each user). This a number of issues with difficulty, scoring, etc, which we have been able to fudge for the purposes of a simulated CAT experience.

If you are able to finish the sections in half the time, I would recommend taking of the hardest questions on GMAT Club. I would probably say you may not need much more prep than you have done already:
1 topic-147050.html
2 topic-108620.html
3 topic-126934.html
4 topic-98257.html
5 topic-9358.html
6 topic-139558.html
7 topic-87439.html
8 topic-85291.html
9 topic-106060.html
10 topic-99478.html



P.S. I am looking forward to your debrief! I sense an amazing score!


Thank you for your kind words.
I am already following multiple threads for High Difficulty questions. Thank you for above list. These questions are really good. May be a part of my expectations was after going through numerous questions I have solved over last month.

I will definitely post a debrief, once it qualifies to be worth posting on GMATClub.

As a feedback, for me, Question of the Day was the one that hooked me to GMAT Club. I cannot resist opening that email and solving the 2 questions, even if its middle of the night.

Hello Moderators,

Please if possible add the countdown timer to the RC questions as well. It will help us keep track of the time we take while practicing an RC on the website.

In this case there will be a timer only and no answer options to mark contrary to other sections (PS, SC, DS, CR) where we have answers side by side to the timer.


Many Thanks,
Sahil Bansal

Hello,

I am not sure whether this option is already available or not.
I am using GC from past 1 year and always thought that if we had the option of ADVANCED SEARCH then we would have got the specific questions which we want to analyze, study or solve etc..

For example,
If I want to study only Geometry AND 700 level AND GMATPrep source questions then it is difficult for me to identify it from the tags. After clicking on source tags, I will again need to check the level of question.

So my suggestion is, can we have a Advanced Search option which will take multiple options in to consideration for better search.
I always found GC MOSTuser friendly than other websites, and it would be my pleasure to give inputs.

I am attaching one simple image to give just general idea about my thoughts.
Let me know if I sound confusing. This option is not at all available in other websites so it is better to be ahead :-D :lol:

Thanks,
Chetan

Hey GMATClub moderators,

I've got two suggestions that could really help people in getting most of what you already have.

1. Tag search modifications(the post above is better than my suggestion):

right now if I want to do "participle parallelism" problems or "which/that" problems, I click on the respective link but what if I want to do problems that involve both the topics ?

I don't know if there is a way already. I've always been weak in some topics of Quant if they come as "word problems". If I had the option to choose "fractions" and "word problems", it would've been great. I hope you understand what I am trying to say.


2. GMATclub tests:

you know that no. of questions for verbal is fewer than Maths questions. What I would like is a separate button to reset Verbal pool and a separate one to reset Maths pool.


Last: I would like to volunteer but after my GMAT. will fill out the form then.

4. Analysis of questions in a breakdown by all types and difficulty (radar chart for overview)? And if you add source it will be easier to identify differences having this much data.

P.S.. Bunuel posts "related questions" to some topics, this is gold! Keep it up. If this only would be possible in mobile app (paid ofc)

Thank you for your great work, guys!


Thanks for the suggestion, kudos to you.

I coudnt understand point 2, also regarding point 3 why would you want to check other users bookmark, to check a importance of a topic we have KUDOS.

Point 4 can you be more detailed on what things you are looking for in an analysis?

You can also post your suggestions here suggestions-announcements-support-5/


Point 2 is about adding links to the topics that are covered in the questions, e.g. Quesion is on standard deviation - there is a link to SD topic in math book. Like "you don't know ho to approach it? Read theory first. You still don't know? Here's a list of similar topic questions but which are easies". Actually, can't you tag questions automatically based on statistics? Like on web-site. Because many questions lack tags, and it's not obvious if you're doing well, or the questions are too simple.

Point 4, well this will take time, so let me answer it later.

1. Thank you. We fixed the typo on Wed.
2. - where would you like to see those?
3. We have a favorite option (Star next to the topic name but I am guessing it is not clear/working). Let me see if we can improve that
4. Thank you for the analysis suggestion - I will play with it. Do you have a sketch idea of how you would present a radar chart? that would help a LOT!

Best Regards,
BB

2. initially this discussion was about gmatclub mobile app. There is a great menu, so one of the options? Basically, this is tagging, it's just that tags are linked to something.
3. What about comments only?
4. hmmm, see sketches in the attachment. Both charts are based on the same data set, but one of them gives you the idea of overall good performance with no weak topics, while the other demonstrates that user clearly has weaknesses on PS, because he fails 'easy' questions, it's either because there are topics within PS he understands worse than other topics or because questions are bad. Obviously, this chart should be layered (you can turn off / on additional info). Me personally, I don't even need this chart, an excel spreadshit with Question type / question tags (from forum post) / time would have been enough for me, but that's me.

Also, is it possible to write notes? like "guess", "csareless" etc. buttons on the timer? I know people use this for their preparation. And another button, did you like it yes/no(why? wrong answer, non-gmat wording). So that moderators will identify bad questions easier (I know there will be false reports, but if 20 users took the question and 10 reported it, thats a good indication of a bad question).
And, another point, is it possible to add few timers per one post? Even better, create a meta-post that will contain set of questions and links to separate discussion thread for each? I've seen a lot of topics with several questions but only one timer.

File comment: On the left just a simple chart, on the right it's a chart with questions difficulty levels.

I get the following message on my Personalized MBA Timeline:
The deadline for this program/year has not been released yet.
We continuously update deadlines as they are released by schools. If you feel you are getting this message in error, please let us know.

But there is no link in the message that i can click to let you guys know about the deadline. I am planning to apply to NYU Part-time program for which deadline is May 15. Can you guys update it and add a link in the message as well which would be generic for all schools i believe.

When I post a question, I do not see an option in the "source" section to specify that the question is self-made. I had to choose "others", and add a text along with the question to indicate that the question is self-made.

If many people are submitting their own questions to this forum, then it would make sense to classify the questions in a separate source category for the following reasons:
1) People can decide to ignore these questions (based on the source), if they just want to concentrate on questions from reputed test prep companies.
2) Gmat Club Tests can use high quality questions submitted by users

Hi BB,

GMAT Club is one of the best organized forums out there for the GMAT. But as a student who depends heavily on it, I have a simple suggestion - if implemented can help a lot while going through questions. For difficult questions, the active discussion can sometimes be long, leading to 6-7 page threads for a single question and to go through each one is time consuming. If at the end of each question we have another sort option available that helps to sort by Kudos or Expert posts it will really reduce the time to understanding the mistake one did on a particular question and move on to the next. Thanks and cheers for all the good work.

Can we have the login session stay for a bit longer? In fact, it could be made such that it never expires. It is a bit of a hassle to type in the login and password every time you come back to the forum. At times it happens that I don't realize that I am not logged in, but start solving problems, only to realize that none of them went to my workbook.

Something like Facebook would be ideal. Never log people out of their machines, unless explicitly asked so, by them. Given the nature of the forum, I don't see any security related concern there.


Thank you. The system is supposed to keep you logged in for a long time. However, for some reason that does not happen... we will look into it.

Hi

I have the following suggestions
1. Use an open source client editor for the notes section in the tests. I understand that this cannot be achieved throughout the blog because of a gazillion existing posts and comments, but can definitely be implemented for notes. Doing this now will not only make the notes more readable, quick to skim through but also prevent website issues later in time.
2. Create tabs for Verbal and Quant, such that they represent a pie chart showing accuracy in 2 modes -
a) Type + Level. Eg. Sentence Correction + Level 700 accuracy OR RC + Level 600 accuracy
b) Sub-types. Eg. CR Bold Face accuracy, SC Subject Verb Agreement Accuracy etc.

Later, more advanced customization can be scaled up on this model, for eg. Editable dashboard, allowing users to keep only selected statistics on the page, or pick questions from a specific category etc.

Hope this suggestion adds value!

+Kudos, if this helped!

I have 2 suggestions I'd really enjoy to see added to the site:

1. I would love to see date of thread creation instead of simply date of last post. I have significantly less interest in a thread about someone's experiences in 2008 that's been bumped given the change of gmat landscape than I would a more recent experience. It's not a huge inconvenience to go into the thread to see when the debrief or posting was made but it would be a nice addition to have that included in preview as it is with date of last post.

2. In the "Patterns among those who scored...." thread there is a sub category in the the original post for verbal strategies, I believe it would be of tremendous benefit to also have a Quant one. I know most people here are already Quant strong in need of verbal help bit I also know there is a section of us who are the other end and would value the Quant strategies.

Thanks,
Cameron
