    the CAT exam tests your ability in the following sections :
    1. quantitative aptitude ( consists of mathematical topics such as profit/loss, permutation/combination, probability, averages etc. )
    2. logical reasoning
    3. data interpretation
    4. verbal section ( tests your command over the english language, vocabulary and its usage )

    various coaching institutes provide consolidated material covering all the topics when you join the classes. in case you want to study on your own you can simply buy this material. a lot of question papers,tests etc are available online as well. there are many sites which are dedicated solely to providing material to MBA aspirants.

    all the best

    =====================================


    Hi friend,
    Hope you are in good health and good state of mind!
    It's always a treat and fun to answer your queries.
    I also appreciate the confidence that you have shown in us!


    It's good to see that you are so much concerned about your future.
    Keep up this spirit and I am sure that you'll make it to a Top B-School.

    As far as the study material is concerned,you can buy packages from stationary shops.
    There are coaching institutes such as IMS,TIME and Career Launcher that prepare students for exams like CAT.
    They publish their own study material.
    You can buy these material from shops at 50% discount.
    Study them regularly and spend as much as possible!

    If you are not able to do so,then you can take coaching for MBA as well.

    But keep in mind one thing that it is the self study and the amount of hard work that you put after going back home is really what matters.
    Revise all the notes given by the teachers at the coaching centre.
    Keep doing hard work and burn your night lamps!


    I hope I have answered all your doubts.
    It was a pleasure answering your queries.
    Hope that you'll come up with some more challenging queries!
    Till then,take care.
    Bye!

    COMMON ADMISSION TEST (CAT) PLAYS AN IMPORTANT ROLE FOR THOSE ASPIRANTS WHO WANTS TO GET ADMISSION IN INDIAN INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT (IIMs) COLLEGES. AS THERE IS A TOUGH COMPETITION DUE TO LARGE NO. OF APPEARING ASPIRANTS IN THE CAT ENTRANCE EXAM. SO, IT IS NECESSARY TO PREPARE FOR THE CAT EXAMS UNDER A GOOD GUIDANCE AND WITH THE BEST STUDY MATERIAL.

    I MENTIONED FEW BOOKS BELOW WHICH ARE THE BEST FOR THE CAT EXAM PREPARATION:-

    [2]-DATA INTERPRETATION AND LOGICAL REASONING BY ARUN SHARMA

    [3]-VERBAL ABILITY BY WREN AND MARTEN

    [4]-CAT BY N. K. SINHA

    [5]-STUDENT,S COMPANION BY WILFRED D.BEST

    [6]-R.S. AGRAWAL FOR VERBAL REASONING

    [8]-CAT SOLVED PAPERS BY UPKAR,S

    [9]-THE PEARSON COMPLETE GUIDE FOR THE CAT

    [10]-GENERAL AWARENESS/BUSINESS AWARENESS



    I WANTS TO SUGGEST YOU TO JOIN ANY GOOD CAT COACHING INSTITUTE FOR THE PREPARATION. IT WILL BE BENEFICIAL FOR YOU TO DO THE PREPARATION UNDER AN EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONALS.

    ALL THE BEST.

    You can go for MBA entrance exam now.

    CAT is Common Admission Test.

    For this exam read guides of Arihant Publication, Lucent Publication, Kiran Publication etc.

    Below are given previous years papers which will provide you brief idea of questions asked in CAT exams.
