Hi everyone, so I'm struggling with how do I tackle wrong questions on the GMAT
One I do have an error log but should I write every wrong question in a separate book or should I be mindful of that wrong question and why was it wrong . Especially with sentence correction and reading comp. Any suggestions on the math and verbal section

Hi cocojatti92,

Welcome to GMATClub!

For your error log, instead of just noting down all your mistakes in a separate note book,
it makes sense to write the key takeaway from this mistake that you had committed.
For example, each when used a subject is always followed by a singular verb.
This should be your takeaway.
Make sure to read this takeaway repetitively, so that you don't repeat that mistake again!

For the Quant section, you could write something like
For Number property DS questions, always consider fractions/zero etc...

Hope this helps!

Thank you so much I'm starting from scratch because self studying was not helping me out. I'm taking manhattan prep 9 week in my city. I'm also struggling should I get a separate notebook for each section of the prep book ? I really just don't know how to start this to be honest

Hi cocojatti,

Rather than writing everything in a book , you should note down 1 liner.
This 1 liner will remind you that you are weak in that topic.
Read that concept in detail and then practice few questions on that topic.
This will make your that particular concept clear.
