On beatthegmat.com, the general advice is to keep an error log. In their own words:
“Be sure to track your errors. One of the most common mistakes that GMAT test takers make when preparing for the GMAT is that they do not spend time to track their performance on practice problems/tests. It’s absolutely critical to keep a log of your errors in order to determine your strengths and weaknesses; this will allow you to tailor your GMAT prep to ensure to focus on the specific subjects where you need the most help.”
I have decided to apply this advice to my language learning experience as well as the GMAT preparation.
Do check out:
How To Learn From Your Errors article written by MGMAT. It is good to get the general idea and then apply some of their advice to your language learning approach.
TIP 2: Your success depends on how well you implement necessary changes and maintain those changes.
TIP 3: Don’t dwell on the past, just move on. Somedays you will not do anything, and on other days you will triple your efforts. My experience from revising for the GMAT has taught me that discipline and tracking your errors are key. My experience has also taught me that when working in a team, I thrive when I receive and give feedback. The GMAT and Chinese learning activities are activities that I undertake alone and I will now have to think of ways to say and receive well dones from myself. <— This must sound odd to some but it is something that I discovered and I think that if I can work on this, I will encounter fewer learning obstacles.
