OG12 Question type in Excel... [#permalink]

Hello All,

Been around for a bit now, probably 60% through my GMAT journey myself.

I was looking around and noticed a great error log as well as practice problems suggestions, particularly with the OG12.

One of the biggest complaints/downsides of the Error log is having to actually fill it out as this takes lots of time and effort. Some have claimed diminished rewards when looking at the effort:payout ratio.

I had an idea to integrate the error log with at least the OG12 questions sets. I may not be the first person to have this idea, but anyways here goes:

Is there any resource available that lists out by question number based on the OG12 what question type that number was?

For Example:

#98, Quant PS - Arithmetic Operations on Rational Numbers
#99, Quant PS - Algebra Statistics
#100, Quant PS - Etc.

I was thinking of making a working worksheet, that is then integrated with the error log, so all you have to do is fill out the worksheet as you complete the OG and the error log auto populates. I am by no means an excel wizard, but I imagine this to be pretty easy IF all of the question types are listed in excel. If someone could present such an excel list, I would be happy to take a stab at an integrated OG12 worksheet/error log.

I suppose it is possible to get a PDF of the OG12 then write a script that strips the data you want out, but I feel like that is sketch and laborious as well...

Only caveat being: I have no idea if this violates any copyright laws. I am not sure it does, as we would be only discussing the problem type, not unlike what we do on this forum in focused verbal or Quant sections. If it is illegal, of course I would not condone the action or pissing off GMAC .

I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this. It's not impossible, but would be a decent amount of work to generate. I was just wondering if this list already exists.

yes - there is one. it's called the Guide to the OG Guide - very helpful! If you can't find it, PM me and i'll email it to you.

I think that this error log is good but if you're using multiple sources, it gets complicated. I use it as a reference to focus on which concepts I want to study that night.

In my opinion, I think the error logs are a great idea for Access and not Excel. However, it's time consuming to create a program so Excel can do the job.

Yup very interested... I will see what kind of format it is in and try to create a draft spreadsheet so you all can see what I was talking about, if it is what I am looking for

Ok. 2 things. This is what I was looking for, and I plan to add some improvements to it. I found the original thread, I will post my updated version in that thread.

Yep. That is the one. Sorry for my mobile laziness update. I couldn't verbalize my thoughts originally to ask for the "guide to the guide", so I never found it. Carosemena helped me locate that information.

bb, feel free to delete this thread, I realize it is redundant. I will post my updated one on the thread you mention once I have completed it and made it more user friendly.

Thanks!

No worries at all. I will let this stick around in case others search for it - I think this may be a more "user friendly" name/term
