Hi Guys,

here I am once again with, maybe, my ambitious project since I am here around on GMATClub. Whenever I drive, work or read news, there is a corner in my mind that thinks: what can I do for the board ?' what could help the students in their GMAT journey ??

most of the students study alone, and here they have tons of outstanding material, both quant and verbal. But after all they are alone. Other can not effort a course by companies due to money or their schedule. That say, I reflected on this and as a consequence, I went to comb into my database. What I notice is that I have ALL the quant and verbal videos create by Ron Purewal Thursdays With Ron

You do know, or should know, that Ron is one of the best GMAT tutor out there, especially in SC. Which is the big deal of my quant collection ?? downloading it you can have ALL the video explanations provided by Ron since 2009, year of the study hall's inception, today. Several videos can not longer downloaded due to: 404 internal error, or they are deleted, or else. As such, the students now have a guidance in their GMAT journey.

Each video has a length of circa 90 minutes and the videos are 62, until now. Because Ron in the same video tackle several concepts from a broad GMAT area of content, i.e. in the same video he explains questions that cover number properties and geometry the videos are not categorized per area of study.

They are ordered chronologically. If you have some feedback in this regard, do not esitate to send me a PVT.

Done. You can enjoy amazing explanations by Ron.

DISCLAIMER: this is copyrighted material owned by MGMAT. The video are free to download. I have collected them with the only purpose to help the students

Here You can find the Quant part MGMAT Study Hall Thursdays with Ron Quant Videos

The download speed depends on your internet connection. OneDrive does not have any limitation in terms of download bandwidth






UPDATE: from now ongoing, inside the verbal folder, you do have subfolders from 2009 to 2016. I think there is no need further explanations. Enjoy

@carcass- i really appreciate your effort, but i am still not sure about which way to go about, about downloading(may be because it's too much data- 23.57 GB to be precise).
And that's why i want to be sure about the end result and the process before proceeding. :shock:
So let me just put it straight- do we have to download each one of 11 files(i.e. .z01- .z11), each 2 GB+ the .zip file(1.57 GB), after downloading all the 12 files, double click on the zip folder, n everything will fall into place( now here is the confusing part for me, i mean after downloading all the 12 files, do we have to add the 11 files first, then extract or first extract, then add all the files).I hope i am not further confusing the matter but the thing is i am still confused(and i think a lot of people are like me still), that's why i am raking the issue! :roll: :roll:
So, let me put in one sentence- is it like this thing's only gonna work if we download all the 12 files, even if one file is missing, this is not gonna work?
Now, i will tell u what i have done till now- first i downloaded one file- .z05, tried to open it- but to no avail as the extension is .z05, not opening in any player.
Then i downloaded the .zip folder, double clicked it, some extraction took place, but still unable to open .z05, so i reiterate my point, will i be able to open them if i download the rest of the 10 files(.z01-.z04 and .z06-.z11).
You know i am deliberating and going so deep because i am tentative/apprehensive what if after downloading 23.57 GB of sheer data, i come out with nothing because i didn't followed the required/stated procedure.
BTW, i am proceeding ahead with the remaining downloads, but plz guide me carcass in the meanwhile!!

Thanks and regards,

I would not be smatterer but one one hand people meet a lot of problems with these files, one the other hand I really do not know why. I mean: guys these are basic computer skills.

Whenever you have a folder (it does not matter how much it is large: 10 mb or 200 GB) and you compress it and split into two files, you must click or the root folder to rejoin and have the starting folder. if you download one part and try to extract, then is normal you get an error, because they are concatenated togheter. It is a dangling zip part.

That say, in my first post there is a screeshot in which is well explained how to do, and it is simple like drinking a glass of water.

Download ALL 12 parts, we say on your desktop folder or whenever you wanna. Then click on the the last one: that of 1.57 GB; this one is the ROOT folder and has not the extention z01, z02 and so on. In this way you have ALL videos. BTW: this is the way how is conceive and work the ZIP protocol.

But do not worry: I am restructuring the entir archive, dividing it in to folder such as 2012,2013 and so on with all videos inside, so you can download only the video of interest.

Regards

@carcass- thanks carcass 4 such a prompt reply, i really appreciate it!
now i think it's crystal clear as a glass of refined water even for a dumbass like me!! :P
But i sincerely think now dis explanation of your's is gonna help a lot of dumbasses like me!!
BTW, i wud like to share a thing wid u what problem may be faced by a lot of persons worldwide who have slow/broken/sporadic/intermittent internet connections like me!
Even though i have a 5 Mbps broadpband plan(which is quite decent as per my country's India standards), but d problem which is faced by a majority of people in india is the flow of data or network is not constant. Every now and then, the network will go off for a minute, two or sometimes 10, 15, 30 minutes etc.
So while i am trying to download the 12 files one by one, what happens is after may be 1GB or 1.5 GB of data has been downloaded, but then my internet connection goes off for 5 minutes, then the 1GB or 1.5 GB data also vanishes completely due to break in transmission of internet supply( totally my ISP fault, nothing to do with u), but it's so annoying i can't tell u in words.
Take my example, till now i have downloaded 4 files out of 12, but i had to try like 7-8 times for the same, i mean my 3-4 attempts came out with nothing even after downloading may be 1- sometimes almost 2 GB. Also, one has to constantly keep a tab whether the download is goin on smoothly or has terminated, u can't just do something in the meanwhile which demands attention, i specifically mean studies!
So a suggestion crops up here, if d files are on torrent(if it's possible), then we(i concur there r a awful lot of people who u would concur wid me here) wudn't hv to face the problem as one can resume in torrent from where one left, i mean d amount of data u hv already downloaded via torrent doesn't vanish if your internet connection goes off while in cloud computing i think it's not possible, at least in microsoft one drive!!
Anyways i again thank a zillion to your time & effort

Rashid Hussain

Your suggestion really fits the case. However, before to upload the files on onedrive that for several reason is the best option out there: first of all rarely if never you will meet a problem such as: the drive is off, or in maintenance with Microsoft. Secondly, and more important, the connection is fast and stable. Unfortunately is your country that has such internet problem.

That say, I have already evaluated with the gmatclub team all the viable options:

  • FTP protocol is cumbersome a bit to set up, both in its configuration and usability.
  • Torrent is not possible because to share a file you need seeders and I have serious doubts that people keep up the file in sharing
  • Sharing directly the folder from my PC is impossible for security reasons, of course.

Do not worry: I am uploading all the videos singularly. So ypu can choose the video you need to study about and the size is no more than 200mb the best quality available.

regards

@carcass- finally i was able to download all 12 files.
yes i did it, i did it, i did it!!
was relentlessly trying 4 d last 3 days! finally!!
Even though .z11 took 5-6 attempts.
BTW, i wud like to share some points:
after extracting as explained by you(double clicking the zip folder), cud only get 59 files in total(19.6 GB) as i got some error message as following:

1- C:\Users\koolrash\Downloads\MGMAT_Study_Hall_Thursdays_with_Ron_Verbal_Videos.z02: Checksum error in MGMAT_Study_Hall_Thursdays_with_Ron_Verbal_Videos\119 - Thursdays with Ron- March 26 2015-Sentence Correction The use of And.mp4. The file is corrupt
! There is not enough space on the disk.

2- Write error in the file MGMAT_Study_Hall_Thursdays_with_Ron_Verbal_Videos\79 - Thursdays with Ron - May 2, 2013_Prompt contains blank.avi. Probably the disk is full
! There is not enough space on the disk.

I don't know what dis tells but i just checked my hard disk memory and there is at least 20 Gb free in every drive.
I don't know which 3 files i missed?

But anyways, thanks again a zillion for ur gesture Carcass!

Thanks, regards and i bow my head down to you!

Thank you so much to pointed out . the problem is related to Microsoft: sometimes they do not know neither what they are going to do.

A Couple of months ago I had a harsh discussion with the stuff and the sharing links broken. Moreover, I have purchased one terabyte of space.......so for me this is unbelievable.

Let me know if now it works

regards

if you select the entire folder (for instance the 2016 folder) or ALL at one time, then the download will start. And you will have the compressed files. We are talking that one folder is up to almost two gigabytes.

That said, you can extract the folder itself with bandzip.

Here the mac version https://en.bandisoft.com/bandizip.mac/

These are basic skills , though

Hey hi carcass,
I had a question, does ron cover mainly questions from free official GMATprep mocks?
Cause I haven't given both the free mocks yet, so just wanted to keep an eye out.
Also does Ron cover advance topics or basics in the verbal section?

Thanks

carcass does ron cover all topic for Verbal?
Also are his techniques still relevant. Since the Gmat has undergone changes, such as as sentence correction focuses more on meaning now?

Not sure if he covered 100% topics, but his approach is definitely meaning based. He is a legend, and you will know why after watching one of his SC videos. :)
