Hi everyone,

Has anyone here ever tried a journal format for Error Logs? I.e. in Word format.

I am unable to post links for the time being, but you can try a quick google on "Magoosh error log".

I've tried using it for each and every example. It takes me about 5-10 minutes to log and review each question.

What are your views? Do you think it is too painstaking and tedious or worth the effort?

The main focus of an error log is to help you minimize mistakes in the actual exam. So, while it may take some time to manually note them, a journal form of an error log can be very helpful for your weak concepts as you will get the chance to spend more time with them.

Best wishes!:)

Hi Akela,

Thanks for the links. However, I already checked those out and currently those are mostly in spreadsheet/ Excel format.

I was wondering if anyone was doing it in journal/ word document form?

Hi gmat20192,

You bring up a very good point. I agree that creating an old-fashioned error log using Excel or Word can be can be incredibly time-consuming. However, error logs do help you keep track of your weaknesses in an organized fashion. Thus, if you find that you are spending too much time maintaining your error log, consider using a self-study course that tracks your stats for you and provides a personalized error log with detailed analytics.

Feel free to reach out with further questions.

Are you spending most of that time entering information into your log? If yes, then you need to reduce the amount of information you're tracking. Don't skimp on actual review though, as that's where a lot of your learning will happen.
