    Preparation for CAT to get into IIM?

    I am a student waiting for my 1st year BBA results and i am planning for a good shot at the IIM. But now i can't solve even one question also, so can i cope up with the syllabus and crack the IIM? If possible what are the ways i should follow up?

    CAT ( i.e. the entrance exam for admission into the IIMs ) tests your verbal and quantitative aptitude. this means that your knowledge of english, your reasoning abilities, your grasp over maths, your ability to deduce graphs n bar charts etc. is tested. i would advise you to once go through the syllabus and previous year question papers once. also talk to someone who has prepared for CAT and has given the exam. he/she will be able to guide you in the best possible manner.
    also be honest with yourself and understand your limitations: usually we all know what we are capable of.

    all the best

    CAT means common admission test
    first of all for the preparation of test we should get degree with a minimuum of 50% of marks and with any recognised university and we should be having know certain topics such as analytical,verbal resoning,quantitative aptitude,english based questions etc that are related to test.so we should do a lot of hard work because it is national level exam and that to we have to prepare more after writing the written test based upon the written test we have to attend for groupdiscusions and personal interview.we have to prepare by coaching,by consulting the senior,by taking books which we have previous papers so that we can have an idea about the pattern and also time management can also be managed properly.by refering to the arun sharma and R.S aagarwal ,gupta and many other over the various topics that i had listed above can also be happen .as it is having tough competition we should be able to have effective command on english language.by watching english channels and developing skills like managemen t skills ,communication skils,administrative skills,social skills,and many more will be adding extra advantage to get into this field.by doing various types of activities we can develop some extra leadership qualities and by doing involving all types of activities like ppts ,seminar we can develop some type of confidence we will be having for the cat exam.and moreover having academic qualification can also give advantage.

    HI

    Since its just a start, dont loose patience. Try to learn the basics.
    You can join any good coaching classes like TIME, IMS, Career Launcher.
    They will teach you basics and also shortcut to do sums in minimum possible time.

    You can start with R. S . Agarwal. Its a good book covering almost all the topic and there are various difficulty level.
    Syllabus is not difficult, neither the CAT exam, it just require your determination and time.

    So work hard. And we dont know what we are capable of unless we try.

    All the best
