Delivered By

?
  • Usually Delivered in 6-7 business days.

What is the estimated delivery time?

Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
  • The Seller offering the product
  • Product's availability with the Seller
  • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

What do the different tags like "In Stock", "Available" mean?

'In Stock'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

Enter your pincode on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

  • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location

Average But Of course not for Beginners & also not helpful for CAT

For the Last part that is lod III , You wont find any solution .... Am having prob in that part.......
And main thing is that many are saying it is a very good for CAT .....but, as I have completed the book I 'd say , CAT level is much higher than this BOOK....
As am a B.Tech Enggr I 'd say …

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.

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…

:(

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...

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.

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...

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.

Best book for Quantitative Aptitude

The book was really awesome.It helped me a lot to enhance my aptitude skills.Earlier I was facing a lot of problems in most of the chapters of quant like Number System,Algebra,Probability etc.According to me,Quantitative Aptitude for CAT by Arun Sharma is the best book for the CAT aspirants.

Must have for Practicing Quant

A really good book for practice.
The book contains a lot of tips, shortcuts to help build up apart from topic wise questions, mocks.
All CAT topics are covered with different difficulty level questions on that topic.

Specially recommended for working professionals
