If possible can a timer be arranged for RC questions as well......As evaluation of time for RC is very imp.

Couldn't agree more on this feature. The most valuable part of this is that we will have our RC practice stored in our workbooks and get it as a part of the daily practice questions. Helps quite a bit on the motivation part.

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.

Is it plausible to generate A quiz out of the book marked question from the workbook? I know I can manually click on each book marked question but it would be awesome if I could generate a quiz out of it...

Thank you for the suggestion... no, it is not possible to generate a quiz on the forum in any shape or form.
You can do that in the tests however though I realize that's not your question

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.

+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

Thank you for the suggestions. The date of the last post is a very standard forum feature/functionality and that's usually the most important part of a post for those who are looking to understand the last time for participation. To address your concern, what do you feel is different and changed since 2008 on the GMAT? IR? Ability to cancel scores? I don't think those 2 pieces are really a big part of the puzzle. However, if you do want to see only the topics started in the last year, you can do that via search. Here is a link for the Search of all topics created in the last 1 year. I am also attaching a screenshot how you can set it up yourself in the Search area. Choose the sub-forum, time frame, and the tag or multiple tags you want to display/find (you can select all, just make sure you set the tag radio button to any).

#2 It does not seem that we have had a Verbal Strategies Tag. We did have a "Strategies" one.
I have added the Verbal Strategies and Quant Strategies Tags and renamed the "Strategies" into "General Strategies" hope it is not too daunting to figure out what strategies are being provided...

I appreciate the info I will use that feature going forward; just to clarify on two parts I'm aware that's a typical forum move to have date of last post I just thought it would be nice to also have date of thread creation visible as well if it was an easy addition. I'm also aware the GMAT hasn't changed all that much but the prep materials are fairly updated as well for example someone giving a review on GMAT Pill's quant section from several years ago is no longer that relevant because they've massively overhauled their math prep since then. I'd like to be clear I'm not discounting the benefit of these threads I would just like the ability to see which debriefs are more recent without having to click through each individual one.

As far as two I apologize I had the wrong thread, it is in fact the "Patterns among those who scored...." in which it says verbal strategies. I've attached a screenshot and updated my initial post.

I love the site and think you all do great work I just figured I'd mention things that I felt would be nice little additions to see but not necessarily game changers.

Thank you - that makes sense. I am probably a bit protective of some features that are not widely requested (if you can sense some reluctance) due to frequent mentions i hear about the forum being overloaded with information (we have tried to give everything to everyone and may have gone too far). In any case, I see your point.

Thank you for the other link - a lot of work went into that post and collecting that information across the posts. My guess is that we are due for another refresher post on the strategies and what has worked for the top scorers. Will try to do in the coming month for 2015 recap.

Best Regards

Test suggestion; this might be unnecessary as it just takes a quick google search but a nice feature for the tests where there is "explanation" perhaps add a link to the question discussion on the forum as I believe most if not all of these questions are discussed at some point.

This comes up from not quite understanding an explanation every now and then and having to search the forum for the thread where someone has likely discussed it further, if I could just click a link posted below the official explanation it would be a nice feature. As with the other ones I understand it might be one of those things that the effort is not worth the addition or maybe the testing software doesn't allow hyperlink or some such. But as previously I figured I'd go ahead throw it out there just in case.

Hello and thank you for your suggestion.
I am assuming you are referring to the GMAT Club Tests? If so, there is a link to a discussion in every question. It is a bit hidden and you have to click "Show Explanation" See the screenshot below. If this is not what you were referring to, can you please elaborate a bit more?

Thank you!

I have a suggestion bb.

Can we have a way to sort the comments based on the number of kudos?

Eg: An option to click on 'Comments with most kudos first'. Clicking this option should sort the comments based on the kudos.

This feature is particularly useful to view the best solutions to the questions posted in the forum. If the discussion is a long thread, this feature saves a lot of time from browsing through many comments or pages.
