Something is not always better than nothing

Let me start by saying that this is the only decent book on DI & LR which is available in the market. But does that make it a 'must buy' or even 'worth a buy'?

I don't think so. My reason for saying that is not the price of the book but the content. It is too voluminous to start with. It just covers various types of DI & LR questions. It is very repetitive in nature and if a student should not spend too much time solving it. A student's time can be better used elsewhere.

If you are a student and looking for something to practice your DI / LR skills, I would recommend looking at previous year's CAT papers or joining a test series by TIME / IMS / CL, etc. I don't think any student can try out all the questions in a test paper in the given time limit. The student should revisit the paper and try and understand the concepts used in those questions.

If you want to buy a book purely for psychological reasons like 'I NEED SOME BOOK ON DI/LR', then go ahead and click the BUY button. But if that is not the case, if you want to learn, if you want to spend your time wisely - stay away from this book. It would be better if you look at other options (not books but other material from coaching institutes / websites)

This is an excellent book for CAT DI preparation. It has got lots of practice exercises and ample examples of various kinds. As far as the LR part is concerned, number of exercises is less but again examples are very illustrative and span over a very wide domain. A must buy for people who want to hone their DI skills for the CAT.

Well one more thing, this book was my first buy from flipkart. Like any other first-timer I had little faith in e-shopping and so opted for the COD facility. But to my surprise, the book was delivered to me in excellent condition and within the stipulated time period. I'm very satisfied with my first buy.

Use it for Reference purpose

Before buying this book we all must have searched the market and asked for suggestions for any book on LR/DI. This book must have got the maximum "YES". And its true.

However after reading this book, I find that the topics are extensively covered and this makes me feel bored sometimes. Its advisable to have a material of any reputed coaching institute and then finsh the syllabus from there.

However, this book may be useful in the situation when we want to have a complete command over a certain topic. Towards the end of my preparation, it served only as a reference material as I finished my syllabus from other materials.

Cheers !!!

But after buying this book......What all you get in it?

-Lots and lots of DI practice....

This book is important not only because it offers a lot to practice but also to develop a mind set....

So now i will be buying the VA book of arun sharma....
