Quantum CAT comprehensively covers the Quantitative Ability or math section of the Common Admission Test (CAT), which is an entrance exam for students who are looking to join the IIMs, premier Indian institutes for management studies.

The book covers several fundamental concepts and features detailed explanations. It contains thorough explanations for every topic, and hundreds of solved examples for the same. Each chapter in the book has questions from the previous exam papers, so that readers can at once test their understanding of what they have learnt.

Questions that test the reader’s comprehension, ingenuity, and speed in solving problems are provided in this book. The book contains more than 4000 practice problems, and these have been organized into three levels. Shortcuts, analytical methods, and innovative ways to solve the problems are also discussed in this book.

It contains questions papers and solved papers for various management-related exams like CAT, MAT, NMAT, SNAP, FMS, JMET, TISS, and IRMA.

This book serves as an ideal guide that helps readers get a thorough understanding of all the topics covered in the quantitative section.
  • More than 300 fundamental concepts discussed with all the nuances.
  • More than 800 examples thoroughly illustrated with every subtlety.
  • More than 4000 practice problems fully solved to make you master on every aspect.
  • Non-algebraic, diagrammatic and logical solutions to speed up your mathematical thought process. Shortcut techniques, analytical methods and inspirational approach to crack CAT.
  • Exclusive score boosting strategies and next generation approaches for repeaters, stagnant scorers, and pessimists.
  • Special solutions and tips for non-mathematical background students.
  • Apart from CAT-2009 where 100s of problems had found a great match with what it was already provided in the Quantum CAT other prestigious exams too are not shying away from taking a leaf from Quantum CAT.
  • In FMS Test one can find as high as 90% sums resembling with what the Quantum CAT has already offered to its esteemed readers.
  • Even SNAP Test is not far behind as at least 70% sums are taking their roots from this same book.  IIFT Test is already setting examples for others by borrowing the sums and concepts from Quantum CAT where it has already chosen to pick more than 12 sums straight from this book in 2007.
  • One can easily crack more than 70% sums of JMET as there is no much difference in the questions and concepts elaborated in Quantum CAT than what had JMET asked this year.

My experience with this book

This book is THE book to refer to, for CAT, MAT and all other competitive exams. I referred solely to this book for my preparation and this book helped me score an 87 percentile in CAT 2011 and a 98.56 percentile in the December 2011 MAT. My lesser percentile in the CAT is because I am poor in Maths, and this book managed to help me score a 93 percentile in the Quant/DI section.

This book is all that you need because not only does it offer tips and tricks (which are the creation of the author), but it also contains solutions to almost all the questions it contains. It is my opinion that the innovative short cuts, the detailed explanations and the methodology used in this were the sole reason for me being able to dispel all my fears regarding the monster that is the CAT.

This book helped boost my confidence when I was seriously lacking it, and I will remain eternally grateful to the author for this amazing work.

EXCELLENT BOOK

was randomly looking for CAT books on Flipkart, read a few comments about it and as almost all of them had positive review I decided to buy it instead of Arun Sharma which is the most commonly used book for Quant CAT.

Now after doing a few chapters from this book, I strongly recommend it for every CAT aspirant,

Features
=====================
a) Brief Explanation about the things you will encounter in the chapter at the start.
b) Sufficient number of solved examples to get your basics right.
c) Then Practice problem Divided in Three Levels and later giving solutions for the same.

A lengthy saga

I bought this book two weeks ago from Flipkart.com and I have to admit that this book serves a dual purpose - one of providing the reader with a plethora of problems covering the length and breadth of the entire CAT syllabus, and the other of providing enough grammatical mistakes in the questions as well as explanatory parts, only for the student to correct them, and eventually be of great help in boosting their score in the Verbal Ability part of the CAT.

I bought this book two weeks ago from Flipkart.com and I have to admit that this book serves a dual purpose - one of providing the reader with a plethora of problems covering the length and breadth of the entire CAT syllabus, and the other of providing enough grammatical mistakes in the questions as well as explanatory parts, only for the student to correct them, and eventually be of great help in boosting their score in the Verbal Ability part of the CAT. Indeed, it wouldn't be an exaggeration if I say that this book gives enough comprehensive practice for checking-the-grammar-of-a-sentence type questions that appear on the CAT. This is particularly worrying because, there were a lot of instances where I wasn't able to understand what the question was or what the author intended to convey.
Now, let me explain the structure of the book. It starts with a detailed - yet grammatically incorrect - analysis of the CAT, a few strategies for preparation, and the criteria which had been specified by the IIM's for CAT'12. Solved papers of XAT'13, SNAP'12, IIFT'12 are also included. The book contains 21 chapters, each of which is very important for the CAT and the chapter 'Number Systems' has been included under the name 'Fundamentals'. Each chapter has a few introductory exercises, level-1 problems, level-2 problems and a 'final round', each of which are of increasing levels of difficulty. Extensive coverage has been given to all kinds of problems and detailed solutions have been provided to almost every problem at the end of the corresponding chapter.
Additionally, in the final pages of the book, previous year papers of the CAT examination (from 2003-2008) have been included. It would be wise to assume that a person who has solved the problems in this book atleast twice may score somewhere around 90%-95% in the original exam. However, this is a real challenge. Given the number of problems and solved examples, it becomes extremely difficult to solve the entire book in a short span of time. The book is too lengthy and it is tough to solve it twice or thrice within the limited time.
In conclusion, I am of the opinion that despite its shortcomings, this is a good book for beginners; repeaters might feel frustrated while solving the basics but revising them will only strengthen their fundamentals. Also, the authors should edit the book wisely and crop out all the grammatical errors and should try to make the book 'error-free'. I am giving 3 stars out of 5 for this gargantuan compilation of problems

Cons :-
1. This book is the 2011 edition, so you will not get precise dates for the 2013 papers.
2. Rather lengthy, thought CAT is all about practice so its not necessarily a con.
3. As the book is over 800 pages, to keep it as thin as possible, the paper quality is very thin.

I hope my review has helps people. This book is a must buy and hopefully will lead to success for many students like me who do NOT want to join coaching classes.
