I am following your strategy of maintaining error log and revisiting all the wrong question periodically.
This strategy is working fine for SC but for CR i somehow remember the right answer even after 2 months.

i am confused how to use the error log of CR?

A tip for CR would be to understand why the answer is what it is. Also, understand why the other four options were incorrect. CR is logic-based and recalling logic is easier than understanding it. Once you have understood the logic for, say, 50 incorrect CR problems, you may notice a pattern in the logic. 80% of CR GMAT problems follow one of 6-7 common logic threads - the logic is only worded differently. Once you have internalized the logic, you will be able to spot the thread when you solve new problems.

Very late reply here.... of course you will remember your answer. I would hope that a little longer than 2 months and I would hope for all questions. I probably still remember some of the answers and I surely remembered every single question every single answer when I was studying. You are missing the point if you’re trying to surprise yourself with a repeat questions. The idea of revisiting is to refresh your mistake not to attempt to correct it. You can only attempt to correct it on your question. It’s not fair trying to attempt a question you know the answer to.

Hi mh95,

You will likely receive more of a response if you start your own post-thread (instead of piggy-backing on this one). With that first post, you should include as much information about your studies and timeline and you can. For example, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied? How many hours do you typically study each week?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your overall goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
