    For Quantitative: start by revising your 10th class basic maths and shortcut formulas from any good CAT guides.Concentrate your accuracy.You should aim to solve almost every problem you come across, albeit in an inefficient and time-taking manner occasionally. This is probably easier for students like you with engineering background as you all stay in touch with maths throughout your coursework, but three /four months of sincere and steady preparation ought to bring all students up to this level.

    It is highly inadvisable to start memorizing the ‘tips’ and ‘tricks’ at this stage as they are no substitute for good concepts. Almost all CAT problems can be solved quickly enough from basic principles themselves, irrespective of the fact whether you know the relevant tricks and shortcuts or not.

    Once you become fairly confident about solving problems you can start working on the speed factor. Even after you have successfully solved a problem critically analyze your solution and see if you can make it any shorter by removing redundant steps or if a totally different approach is possible. This is quite often possible in time and work, speed, probability, permutations and combinations based problems.

    For Logical reasoning and data interpretation: This is one section where almost every candidate starts preparing from scratch unless he has taken CAT before. At the same time I believe that this is the section where consistent hard work pays off the most. The best way to begin is to set aside a fixed number of hours each day (or every week if you don’t want to be so rigid in your schedule) for attempting DI problems. There are a few things you can pay special attention to while working on this section:
    1. Spend ample time on analyzing the solutions. In fact I often spent more time reviewing solutions than I did while solving problems. Pay special attention to how the information is represented in a more readable and analyzable form through tables etc. This is particularly crucial in solving problems where all the information is just written in the form of a simple, continuous piece of text.

    2. Learn to identify the problems in a set which could have been solved by using just a couple of lines of information from the whole paragraph. This ability proves very critical in tackling a tough DI set or when you are running out of time
