    Hello dear

    Tips to crack CAT:

    CAT is a common aptitude test

    It is a entrance test which enables students to get into top Universities such as IIM's

    It is a 1 year or 2 year MBA or post graduate diploma management course

    start preparing for this tough exam 1 year before

    As it is nation wide test so negative mark will be there so we have to be very confident in keeping answers to the options

    prepare topics from the standard books such as quantitative aptitude for Arun sharma

    referring from NCERT books for quant

    verbal and logical reasoning from -R.S Aggarwal

    english language and comprehension from -wren and martin

    preparing from online test so that you can manage your time

    solving previous years papers so that you can gain confidence

    more papers you will able to solve the more knowledge you can get

    giving equal importance to all sections so that you can able to solve the problems very thoroughly.

    Best of Luck................

    Re: Tips to crack CAT for MBA?

    However, if you think that studying
    from the best CAT preparation books
    and the finest coaching centers will
    ensure success, then you need to
    think twice. There is something
    more that needs your attention: Itís
    your preparation strategy!
    Follow these simple tips and youíll
    be all set to bell the CAT:
    1. Do a SWOT analysis: This means
    that you should analyse your
    Strengths, Weaknesses,
    Opportunities and Threats (i.e.
    SWOT). Take a mock test (even if you
    are not well-prepared). You will
    immediately get to know which areas
    need to be worked upon (work on
    your weakness), which areas need
    just improvements (fortify your
    strengths), which areas will help you
    score the most (exploit your
    opportunities) and which areas can
    be avoided (steer clear of threats).
    2. Know Your CAT Syllabus & CAT
    Pattern: Instead of randomly picking
    up topics to prepare, get hold of the
    complete list of areas that you need
    to cover. The syllabus for CAT is
    never constant, but can get a better
    picture of the various topics here.
    Put up the syllabus in front of your
    study table and keep ticking off
    topics youíre confident about. This is
    an excellent way to keep track of
    what you know/donít know and it
    will take some stress off your mind
    as you keep checking off the topics
    you've covered.
    3. Practice makes you Perfect: This
    did not become a well-known saying
    for no reason! It is extremely
    important to take as many mock
    tests as possible. Since you have
    less than 2 months to prepare, start
    with at least 1 mock test every day.
    In the last week, take only 2-3 tests.
    Make sure you simulate the actual
    CAT atmosphere while taking these
    tests (i.e. take computer-based tests,
    sit in a classroom-like area, take the
    entire test in one go). Doing so will
    help you in the following ways:
    It will increase your test-taking
    speed.
    It will condition you to take
    computer-based tests.
    It will help you overcome panic.
    It will give you a clear picture about
    the topics youíre weak in.
    Only taking mock tests wonít help.
    You should follow up every test with
    an in-depth analysis so that you can
    pin-point your weak areas and work
    on them. Join a test series of a good
    coaching centre (IMS, TIME, Career
    Launcher etc.) Not only do they
    provide excellent sample tests, they
    also provide comprehensive analysis
    for every test.
    But self-study is equally important.
    Sidharth Balakrishna, an IIM
    alumnus and a Counselling Expert
    on our website advises not to rely
    too much on coaching institute
    material and tests; rather you
    should try and build your
    capabilities in solving the kind of
    questions that do appear.
    4. History does Repeat itself!: Get
    hold of questions from previous
    yearsí CAT exams and try solving
    them. Though you may not find
    questions being repeated, you will
    get a fair idea about the kind of
    questions that CAT 2013 will throw
    at you.
    5. Get familiar with not just CAT
    but also the MOUSE!: CAT went from
    being a paper-based test to a
    computer -based test from 2009
    onwards. So make sure that your
    mock tests are always taken on a
    computer. Students tend to get
    jittery and nervous in an
    examination hall and things can get
    worse if you are not comfortable
    taking an exam using a computer
    and a mouse.
    6. Two Heads are Better than
    One: In fact the more heads, the
    merrier! Form study groups if they
    work for you. Studying with like-
    minded students helps you retain
    more of what you learn. But make
    sure that your study group friends
    are as serious about CAT preparation
    as you are and that you donít end
    up wasting time in mindless chatter!
    7. Discipline is very Important: Plan
    your preparation calendar and stick
    to it! Two months is too short a time
    period to be wasted in
    procrastination. What you do/not do
    every day would impact your CAT
    score. So get out of the panic mode
    and get into the study mode NOW!
    What matters eventually is the
    quality of your preparation and not
    quantity. There are many students
    who have put in 6-8 weeks of
    dedicated efforts and have sailed
    through CAT into IIMs and other top
    B-schools. So donít lose hope! You
    still stand a good chance if you start
    studying now!
