    Excellent framework of Comprehension.

    coming serially.. comprehension passages organized very well and given many to practice well.. and basic numeracy.. explained well. But, decision making and problem solving is not given in this book. this is lacking.

    Useful but insufficient

    Some topics like blood relations,time-distance,probability etc. explained and solved in the book are helpful, but if you are
    looking for complete package for preparation of paper-2,this will not be the right choice.
    Examples in this book are seldom repeated, but provide a good practice.
    All in all a good book.
