I'm quite new to GMAT and it is much appreciated if anyone can help me to create an Error Log. I would like to see a sample Error Log as well.

Dawn, you can maintian an error log as per your convenience. simply record your errors and write the correct explanations for them. you should also write down problems that you did get right ,but you guessed the right answer. In addition, if you ever used process of elimination on a problem ,that problem and its correct solution should be a part of your error log.

Just for giggles, here is something i wrote on our blog:

If you know Praetorian (thats me), you might have seen me talking about the importance of the error log. I cant help but feel that it is the single most important tool for doing well on tests like GMAT. If you are not eliminating your errors as you practice, you are wasting time and losing confidence. you will then tend to increase your prep time by a month just to feel good about the length of prep you had. Thats wrong. Maintain a discipline of identifying your errors at the end of each prep. day and write those down in your error log. No matter how boring this sounds, do it.This error log will be especially useful when you guys are in your final week of prep.

From experience, i can tell you that it is frustrating to decide what problems to go over and where to look for them. Enter the error log. Now is the time that you will feel rewarded for those boring nights when you sat down to record your errors and write explanations for yourself. I am confident that if you have covered every area that is tested on the GMAT thoroughly and if you maintained this discipline of updating and reviewing your error log everyday, your error log is probably the best prep material you can ever develop for yourself. No book, no guide, no software can ever replace notes that you have written for yourself based on your problem areas.

how you maintain your log is upto you. GMAT Club recently started offering personal forums as error logs. you can write notes , copy problems into the log etc. so you can consider that option. you need to committ to 100 posts on the forum and you are in.

Come back from the test center and come throw rocks at me if you didnt find the error log useful.
