    Hello friend .........

    Books for CAT preparation


    CAT is the MBA entrance exam for the admission in the IIMs and other top B-Schools .
    The eligibility for the CAT exam is graduate degree from any discipline with 50% of marks from recognized university and the candidates in their final year can also apply.
    So as you are in the 4th year of your engineering degree , you are eligible to apply.

    The CAT exam mainly covers the questions from the topics of : Quantitative Ability , Data Interpretation , Verbal Ability and Logical Reasoning.
    to prepare for these topics here I am suggesting some of the good books which you can go through for the quick practice.



    These books provide the required practice material necessary for the CAT exam for the different sections.
    Apart form these books you need to solve the previous years questions papers and other sample papers for the last time practice and this would even help you to boost confidence in you.
    You can purchase these book from any of the book stores or even you can order them online.

    Hope that you would give your 100% in the CAT entrance exam and crack the CAT exam to get the admission in one of the IIMs.

    Best of luck for the CAT exam .

    Regards
    ~PRAVIR~

    Re: Which are the good books for CAT preparation?

    hello friend,from this year there is a change in the pattern of CAT EXAM as it will have one section less to attempt now. The exam will start with a 15-minute tutorial, after which the main examination will commence.
    There will be only two sections to attempt. The first section will be about Quantitative Ability and Data Interpretation. The second section will cover Verbal Ability and Logical Reasoning.
    Each section will have 30 questions; contrary to the previous three sections of 20 questions each. There will be a time of 70 minutes to be solved. There will be on-screen counters for each section that will regulate the time limit automatically.


    For scoring good score in CAT,you can practise from various books like:

    Books of R.S.Aggarwal or any of the following:


    Thanks

    Re: Which are the good books for CAT preparation?

    Hi Friend,

    CAT preparation is one of the toughest exam preparation to undergo.There are numerous books for CAT preparation.Dont rush into book shop and buy all the available publications available for CAT.You need to check whether all the sections were covered according to the exam syllabus.Check whether the fundamental concepts are covered and you need to have more practice questions to work on.You need to spend minimum of 2-4 hours a day for every section.You need ugrade the difficulty level while solving the problems.

    Regards
    Prudvi Raj

    Re: Which are the good books for CAT preparation?

    The most important thing to focus on for clearing CAT exam is English and aptitude.
    Good books are:

    Quant Aptitude by Tata Magraw Hill , Author:Arun Sharma
    Abhijit Guha's book:Quantitative Aptitude For Competitive Examinations

    However, solving mock papers within time limit will be very useful.
    Read newspapers daily.
    You may join any correspondence also for getting mock papers.

    HELLO FRIEND ,

    Adult+Lit+books+logo.jpg


    FOLLOWING ARE THE LIST OF BOOKS FOR CAT THAT WILL HELP YOU A LOT IN YOUR PREPARATION . THESE ARE AS FOLLOWS :-

    TIME material of Quant is very good.


    Some Great books and material for Logical reasoning and Data Interpretation for this section include -


    Career Launcher LR DI book – a thick booklet, the thickest in fact.


    TIME Logical Reasoning for checking out the type of questions which are normally asked.


    Test Fundas’ Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation Module


    Test Funda free puzzle.


    Shakuntla Devi Puzzles


    Last but certainly not the least – Arun Sharma Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation book.
