    Something is not always better than nothing

    Let me start by saying that this is the only decent book on DI & LR which is available in the market. But does that make it a 'must buy' or even 'worth a buy'?

    I don't think so. My reason for saying that is not the price of the book but the content. It is too voluminous to start with. It just covers various types of DI & LR questions. It is very repetitive in nature and if a student should not spend too much time solving it. A student's time can be better used elsewhere.

    If you are a stude...

    This is an excellent book for CAT DI preparation. It has got lots of practice exercises and ample examples of various kinds. As far as the LR part is concerned, number of exercises is less but again examples are very illustrative and span over a very wide domain. A must buy for people who want to hone their DI skills for the CAT.



    Well one more thing, this book was my first buy from flipkart. Like any other first-timer I had little faith in e-shopping and so opted for the COD facility. But ...

    Use it for Reference purpose

    Before buying this book we all must have searched the market and asked for suggestions for any book on LR/DI. This book must have got the maximum "YES". And its true.

    However after reading this book, I find that the topics are extensively covered and this makes me feel bored sometimes. Its advisable to have a material of any reputed coaching institute and then finsh the syllabus from there.

    However, this book may be useful in the situation when we want to have a complete command over a cert...

    Amazing book for DI & LR

    Brilliant approach by the author by bringing out the importance of speed in DI & LR for CAT which plays a really massive role in your attempt. 10 minute tests fabulously increased my DI solving speed. Problem solving approach in LR section is also very interesting with the Reaction Tracker... All in all.. MUST BUY for CAT aspirants. Flipkart you ROCK !!!!

    3)EXAMPLES IN THIS ARE WELL EXPLAINED.
    CONS:
    1)LEVEL OF QUESTION MAY AT SOMETIMES TROUBLE YOU WHILE THINKING .
    FOR ME I THINK PRACTICALLY THERE IS NO OTHER BOOK THAT CAN MATCH THIS ONE!!
