Hi,

I'm using the error log based on the recommendations of Praetorian: all-about-the-error-log-11754.html

But I would like to know the steps and best tips to make the most effective and efficient use of the error log.

What would you suggest in the use of this tool?, Which steps should I follow?

Thanks!

My way of using it is as following:
Every time I do a mistake in one of the practice question or test, I write it down in the error log. Fill everything in the error log, including the date.
The thing is to understand why you made a mistake in the first place, and to make sure you remember such a mistake.

Then you wait 2 weeks, and retake the questions: if you do them right, that's great, if not, you have to understand again why it is wrong, and then do it again in two weeks time.
This way, you will understand the reasons behind every mistake you do, and when you'll have similar questions on d-day, you won't make the same mistake (hopefully).
I hope this helps.

We had a competition on error logs, where people could submit templates. You might find something useful there:
