Mistakes downpour

Initially, this book seemed to be fine for CAT preparation. As i got deeper into it, i found many mistakes in the answer choices. I thought of giving a feedback to the authors but the volume of mistakes made me to chuck the book. If you are serious about CAT preparation, then i would advise reading course material from any reputed institute such as TIME/IMS .
Unless the authors come with an edited latest verson, i recommend flipkart users not to buy this book.

Patience is the key

This is an excellent book for a long term study plan as every content of the syllabus is exhaustively covered. One needs patience to finish this book. If you are looking for a book that can help you to cramp and skim through the contents then this book is not for you.

For beginners, its the best book to start with.

Cheers !!!!

An Excellent Choice for a Methodical Preparation

This book is the right choice for those preparing well ahead of the examination. By the time one exhausts the sea of verbal exercises that this book offers, one is more than ready and programmed to take on the Verbal Section. Although the passages in the book were quite long it helped me build a determination and ability to concentrate for longer spells of time. Please go for this book, if you have five to six months at hand; and from then on hardwork and a determined methodical approach will take you places.

Must have for a better CAT preperation!

Arun Sharma books are quite comprehensive in nature. While it does not always contain the super-magical tricks of question-cracking that most tutorial materials have, you can expect it to be a strong companion in your endeavour to crack CAT. It is complete with both theory, solved questions and questions for practice. Highly recommended for someone looking to have a full-fledged effort at CAT.

And as always, amazing service by Flipkart with superior packaging and speedy delivery!

A Lot of Practice Sets

This is a really good book.

There are a lot of practice sets, but some where this book lacks the advanced skills to tackle the comprehension passages.

At beginning there is a good strategy given, but it is not helpful at every condition. Book is good for long passages that are information based, but not helpful for short passages that are inference based.

You can not expect everything form single author, but overall book is really good for practice.
