This Mistake Tracker is one of the keys to scoring at a significantly higher level. This tool will help you define exactly WHY you're getting questions wrong (rather than a mere count of the content areas you missed the most questions in). By defining your error types, you can learn how to eliminate the mistakes from your work and hone your skill to generate the missing points you're looking for.

Action Steps:

1. Input your results, question-by-question, into the Mistake Tracker Tool.
2. Look at your top 3 tactical mistakes mistakes carefully. Fixing the underlying sources of these mistakes is a key driver of score improvement. Read the specific advice in the "How to Fix Mistake Sources" tab extremely carefully, and be ready to start deploying it immediately.
3. Rework questions and assignments as noted. Remember, you're looking to build new skills and eliminate little mistakes and quirks from your work. That mending process requires that you commit to CHANGING your habits, and reworking the questions you missed is by far the most powerful way to do so. By repeating this process after each CAT and quiz, you will be ready to perform at your highest level on Test Day.

Microsoft Excel (STRONGLY RECOMMENDED)

Step 1: Download interactive Mistake Tracker spreadsheet
The button should say Download Excel Mistake Tracker Spreadsheet
Step 2: Open the Mistake Tracker, and click Enable Editing at the top of the page
Step 3: Click Enable Content at the top of the page

Hi, there. Thank you for this resource! I downloaded the "Empower GMAT Interactive Mistake Tracker Tool," but every time I edit a cell in the document (I use a Mac), the entire document recalculates and freezes my Microsoft Excel. I presume this is because of the marcos? I changed my Excel "calculations" settings from auto to manual, but it still recalculates (and freezes) every time I edit. Please help/advise on how I may fix this.

Thanks again!

Hi nnennaj,

We've been unable to recreate the error that you are experiencing. One of our Engineers suggested that you might try using Apple Numbers.
