I'm struggling with the preparation. Thanks for this useful post. Error log is a useful tool to track all our mistakes during our preparation and revisit them to learn and improve

Hello abhimahna,

Is there a way to add RC to my error log stats?

My error log stats wont show me my RC improvement charts. I could really use this tool. I cant find anything on the settings section either. Am I mission out on some info?

It was very important. Especially to identify the weak areas.

Always marked them into 3 categories.

Content error
Silly mistake error
Too hard/guess

Thank you for sharing.

I find it especially helpful that you partitioned your sessions into two parts. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday to work and "collect" error log. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday to review error log.

I started the error log in google sheets about 2 weeks ago, and decided to re-try some questions. Unfortunately, I ended up not solving most of the questions that I did not solve in the first place... I do analyze questions in very detail and then try to solve at least few similar problems (thanks to gmatclub's search option).

Do you have any advice how to proceed?

Hi abhimahna

Thanks for your detailed, yet simple to follow post.

I'm in the phase in which I'm curtailing my inefficiencies/ weak points. So I've been through all the content, sat the GMAT before, etc.

Note, I have used gmatclub's in-built error log.

I have a few things I wanted to validate:
1. If I understand this correctly, I re-do questions I got incorrect. If I solve them correctly then cool, if not then I review that question and use an active learning technique e.g. flashcards/ feynman technique to master the content. This correct?
2. If i've exhausted the OG for a particular GMAT domain, for example Sentence Correction, then should I use GMATPrep questions on the forum or should i exhaust another question bank such as Magoosh (i have access)/ Manhattan / download more OG problems?
3. How frequently would you recommend practice exams during this phase?

So much yes to this! Very good job elaborating on how critical it is to keep and analyze an error log, abhimahna!

One thing that I'd want to emphasize is the importance of learning from your error log. Just having an error log in existence or looking at it once in a blue moon isn't sufficient. You need to make sure that you're regularly reviewing the information from your error log...

Hey folks -

I've just started using the super helpful Error Log function/spreadsheet within GMATclub - does anyone know if say once you get a question wrong, then re-do it at a later date and get it right, does the error log update itself (as in, upon re-running it, would the question be classified as correct or incorrect)?

Thanks!

Hey Rony26 ,

Thank you! I tried testing your use case and found that Yes!! it will update the error log - meaning answer stats will change BUT the notes if you have added before won't be removed unless you manually remove them, which I think is good.

All the best :)
