    PATHETIC BOOK

    As usual great service from flipkart . Kudos to them .
    apropos this book , please do not got go for it . One of the most shoddily written book i have ever seen , it just contains 35 LOD 1 questions , 40 LOD-2 and 45 LOD-3 questions . If this was meant to be showcased then i think the author should not have bifurcated the book ( DI-LR ) It is total waste of money . i am extremely disappointed on seeing the book . Moreover the advertisements inserted in the book are a absolute turn-off , seem...

    Pathetic Book - Full of Errors

    I bought this book keeping in mind the Reputation of Mr. Arun Sharma. But this book has errors spilled all over its questions as well as solutions. Its completely a waste of time for a persn who is trying to seriously utilize his time for preparation. It forced me to write this review months after buying this book .never ever ever buy it.

    A Good Book

    It is a good book for competitive exams. The thinking pattern analysis is good. I can't find it in any other book.

    But I have some doubts about the solutions of syllogism. It seen some what different from the reasoning books of Banking Service chronicle. Analatical reasoning method is better than Venn Diagram method.

    An "OK" book

    The book is ok for a LITTLE practice on lr.
    No need to buy if you have the previous DI LR book by the same author or buy the combined older DI LR book and save some money, as it would suffice for both DI & LR..
    Finally, not so good..not worth the money (or any money..give it for free)
