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 !!!!

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!

Waste of Money. Full of Errors

What a sheer waste of money and time. Book is full of errors. Even the most simplest of the questions have been answered incorrectly. It simply means that author was just interested in publishing the book and minting money. Not a single review must had been done before it was released.
Book does not even deserve a single star.

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.
