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.

The first day with this book was really enjoyable. The theory part is explained in an apt way along with the problem exercise. So one can expect thorough concept building plus problem practice from this book. I haven't finished the book but so far so good. The different levels of difficulty are providing useful information and I'm getting a good grasp of things out of this book.

Also, I have been told

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.

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...

:(

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...

The content in this book is "excellent" but it is not good as "e-book"

Hello friends,
I have used other quantitative aptitude books previously.In those books they taught
short cut formulas eg: BSC quicker maths (of course it is a great book and have good concepts also). Good thing of short cuts is reduction of time consumption, but the negative side is remembering them is difficult and shortcuts does not work while solving complex problems.Those shortcut may helpful in clerical exams but not in higher exams.
But with this Arun sharma QA book, remembering SC formulas is not required. Because he teaches solving questions by strong concept but not formulas.Mr. Ar

GO FOR IT IF U NEED A PRACTICE

The book is good enough to give you a decent score in DI. The questions are divided into different layers of difficulty.The book also familiarises us in every section in great depth.

The people having time limit problems may in particular buy this one. the practice this one gives really helps to reduce the time.

But there are also certain parts, like convert the information to a pie chart, draw a bar graph etc.... which i feel is a bit crappy. They may help us to be familiar with the process, but then, these are not the sort of questions we expect in CAT.

Perfect example of clarity

This book is a classic example of clarity and detailing. It gives an easy-to-understand matter to know Quantitative Aptitude better.

All the chapters are well covered with different types of questions on that chapter. The reader gets accustomed to all kinds of possible questions which can be asked in the CAT.
