A 'NO' for beginners....great for experts
no solutions for difficult portions,to complex hints makes it difficult for beginners to follow it...but if u have gone through your coaching materials and you have a tutor to clarify you your doubts then it can work as a reference book....thats it...Yasser Khan

Incredible for someone who has little QA knowledge.
I started this book after a little warm up in Quants with the help of a different study material, so which implies that I knew some concepts already before turning the cover page of this book.Abhishek Sharma

Hi
Well i've heard a lot of CAT aspirants talking about the concepts and shortcuts used in this book.But from my experience i think the three level of difficulties part stands on top.I don't know what was in the mind of Arun Sharma when he wanted to publish this book,there is no explanation given for the Block review tests.Infact,i couldn't find solutions to the preassessment tests given before every block.But still its helpful in cracking CAT as i found some core difficult question in LOD3.Joonak Deka

:(
For a first timer this book can do no good....Level of difficult is divided into three parts .but sometimes it becomes difficult to solve some probs from LOD 1 ...its also very hard to understand the basic concepts of some portions...Not a book for those who have just started preparing for the competitive exams...ROHIT KOVILI
