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:
I am by no means a chat pro and that's exactly why I am posting this - I just learned a few tricks how to get the most out of our chat and wanted to share with other non-pro's.
Meet many of the GMAT Club stars and legends in a live "face-to-face" environment
Instant interaction and often help with questions you may have
A place to hang out, relax, and blow off steam. And you probably thought you were the only one unhappy with your job?
The place to be when schools release their decisions (be the first to know when someone gets in or when interview invites are out). We usually post announcement in the forum inviting users into the chat, so you don't have to keep visiting every few mins.
Chat Options for GMAT Club
1. The web client we have built into the website here. You just need a browser and a computer... well, and internet connection..... and well, electricity... 2. You can install a Pidgin Messenger and can set it up to be an IRC messenger - this is probably the most convenient way since you can set it up to co-exist with your other accounts on Skype, Yahoo, and Gogole. 3. Another way is to install an IRC client. That sounds cool but there are quite a few of them (some are paid) and most of them are pretty unfriendly. Of all of them, I found Hydra to be the best combination of unfriendliness, functionality, and price. It is free by the way.
It is pretty easy - you don't even need to register anywhere, just user your username (you could however, register an account on http://www.mibbit.com for more benefits but that's not required)

Step 4: Join the GMAT Club Channel
Our channel is #gmatclub. You can type this into the command line (that's the chat text line and yes, you can type commands in there). So, the command to join the GMAT Club channel is: /join #gmatclub If you do not want to remember/do this every time you logon, do what I did - save this link/channel it to your favorites.
Step 5: Configure Sound Notifications
They are disabled by default so you will have to enable them

P.S. If you guys end up downloading the HydraIRC and liking it, please post here/let me know - I will make a donation to the developer for each user/member.
Well this seems pretty nice. I will promote this product for sure but don't you guys feel that in lieu of this Hydra should be paying me.
Some programmers are so generous to share their product for free that they rely entirely on donations. So I second the decision of BB of donating him per user, howsoever small the donation be.
I am happy to finance your testing experience with additional iTunes funds (in addition to what's offer in the mod forum) So feel free to use one of the gift cards posted there to get a few apps.
