How to Search for Questions, Use Filters, and Sort Results in the GMAT Club Forum?


There is a number of ways actually, and I will teach you all the tricks that moderators use:

1. Find Questions using "Question Banks" Link

Probably the best way to start is to use the link provided at the top of every forum section, called Question Banks
This option provides a friendly interface to search for multiple tags within each subforum (once you pick a subforum, you must stay within it if you are planning to refine your results). Keep in mind that all conditions must be met, so if you pick only 1, such as Difficulty 700-Level, you will get all 700-level questions in that sub-forum but if you pick 7 different conditions, you will likely get nothing since no questions will match ALL conditions.




2. Find Questions via Search

Use the Search Link (not the box) to get pretty specific and deep into search results. Here are some of the examples of searches you can conduct:
  • Search for Questions by Author (e.g. Bunuel or Karishma)
  • Limit results by time - e.g. only questions posted in the last week or month (fresh ones)
  • Search by tags - similarly to how you have used tags above, you can also use tags in your search results. However, here you have additional flexibility of looking either for ANY Tags or ALL Tags. Any means that if you pick several, any of those tags will satisfy your conditions. ALL tags means all of them have to be present in the question/post

3. Search by Sorting or Sort within Search Results

All of the headers in the forums and search results can be used to sort posts and questions.
You can sort them by Kudos count, replies, Expert Reply, Views, Time of the Post, Title, and Author of course
