Besides providing in-depth explanations for each topic being discussed, the book also consists of numerous solved examples to ensure that the students grasp the fundamentals clearly. Each chapter comprises questions from last years’ papers to help students check their knowledge.

So, students preparing for IRMA, FMS, MAT, SNAP, NMAT, TISS, and JMET can benefit from this reference book.

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

3. Answers are provided is a systematic way.
4. Question papres are provided.

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.

Thumbs down

The book covers all topics relevant to CAT and other MBA exams, however a major issue with this book is the language. The author is terrible at grammar, punctuating, spelling, and other aspects of English language. A positive of this book is that it has several questions in addition to the past 15-20 yrs CAT question (compared to TATA mcgraw hill, pearson etc), however the deviant use of language led me to fool's end on a number of occasions. Although you might find topics such as number systems and geometry to be resourceful in this book, the topics involving greater use of words such as t... ()

Although you might find topics such as number systems and geometry to be resourceful in this book, the topics involving greater use of words such as time and work, speed-time, pnc, probability etc are too messed up. It doesn't live up to the Arihant Publications standards.
