Best for self study

Concise and compact. Covers most of the relevant topics in a lucid manner. Most helpful for people preparing for the exams on their own, especially those short on time.

Not satisfied with passages

I have completed Type 1 and Type 2 passages. I felt explanations were not up to the mark.
Sometimes they are very contradictory and wont explain much. Few explanations were wrong.

Quant, Reasoning and other stuff not referred much so cant comment.

Useful thing about this book is question papers set.
