    Re: Referred books for preparation for MAT entrance exam for MBA?

    Dear..

    MAT is a entrance exam for admission in AICTE approved two year regular MBA course. If you want to go for MAT then i must say it is a very good decision of yours but one more thing that i wanna tell you is that do not rely on MAT only and go for other entrance exam like CAT, XAT, SNAP, IBSAT etc as they will give a back up to you and a wide number of option will open for you.

    Eligibility is as follows :-

    1. A candidate must be a graduate
    2. Graduation must be done from a recognized university
    3. 50% marks in case of General or OBC candidate
    4. 45 % marks in case of SC/ST
    5. Good communication skills
    6. A good entrance exam score


    Books that you should refer are as follows :

    1. Best book is Arihant Publication book in which you can expect direct questions also.

    2. Kiran Publications practice set will also help you very much but do follow then once you complete with your whole course

    3. Quicker maths will help you more as it has a short technique to how to solve sums with high speed and accuracy

    4. R.s Agarwal for Reasoning

    5. Do read daily newspaper (Atleast two) It will help you very much

    Hope it will help

    Cheers...!!!
