What a rebel. Someone should give you a sticker.

They should, since he has TCR.

Except his version would require more work than mine requires.

For one thing, you can track available material (assuming you wish to take all released tests). On the nights I didn't take PTs, I took individual sections. It can be difficult to keep track of what sections you have completed without flipping through your books.

Secondly, it tracks your scores for individual sections. It probably doesn't do you much good to know how you were scoring on certain sections when you first started, but keeping track of your weekly scores/averages can be advantageous.

Lastly, it tracks individual question types if the user chooses to use that function. As I've explained, it sometimes helps to know your weak points.

If you are unable to offer on-topic constructive criticism for the OP or other users, resist the urge to post in on-topic forums.

I found it constructive, in its own way. The substance of it was basically "there are easier/less intricate ways to get the same basic result."

Pardon my asking, but do you have any further concerns about the spreadsheet or did my response cover them?

That aside, part of his post may have been a valid criticism. I'll address it.

Sounds good.

D. H2Oman wrote:in B you can put the average number of times it appears per test,


And you would calculate average on your own for each question type? Or did you think averages calculate themselves? Sure your proposed spreadsheet could do this. However, you’d have to update the formula each time.

=Average(3,5,4,2,6…..


Sounds like the same amount of work (if not more) to me.

D. H2Oman wrote:in C the average number of times you get [them] incorrect.


Another manual calculation that you propose would result in less work. I’m not saying calculating averages aren’t easy. I’m saying they fall under that ‘unnecessary’ category chup was talking about.

Thank you for your criticism.

It was very original. I thought about it myself when designing the spreadsheet, but there wasn't much I could fit into this space:

Bring on the penis jokes in the BP thread all you want. Just keep them out of here please. Thanks :)

The chup/YCR exchange is more hilarious with the new purpling.

Also, what the fuck kind of necro is this.

What do you mean by "necro"? I've seen that a few times over the course of a couple hundred threads but haven't quite deciphered its meaning. There's a cool, random relevance concerning this exchange, after briefly glossing over your profile as well, woo.
