Average But Of course not for Beginners & also not helpful for CAT

For the Last part that is lod III , You wont find any solution .... Am having prob in that part.......

And main thing is that many are saying it is a very good for CAT .....but, as I have completed the book I 'd say , CAT level is much higher than this BOOK....

As am a B.Tech Enggr I 'd say this book is helpful for cracking Diffrnt Companies Apti part or 1st round (specially for ELITMUS) but , book is not for CAT....
