    Be careful.

    First I would thank flipkart for speed delivery. Because it takes only 3days to deliver the book.
    Before purchasing the book you consider the following points.

    1. If you start preparing from basics than don't buy the book. Because the standard is high. If you're familiar with topics than it will easy to carry the book.

    2.Start with your favorite topic. It will lead you to quick understanding of format of book.

    3. It is not only cat book. It is useful all competitive exams like SSC, Bank ...

    You have got to buy this!

    After having read the other reviews, you would have judged by now that this is indeed a very good book. I won't say otherwise too. One of the best things about this book is that it stimulates your mind for tackling difficult maths problems. The level of questions is good and there are a whole lot of them! I would strongly recommend this book! It is one of the best books I have ever read.

    This book is a classic example of clarity and detailing. It gives an easy-to-understand matter to know Quantitative Aptitude better.

    All the chapters are well covered with different types of questions on that chapter. The reader gets accustomed to all kinds of possible questions which can be asked in the CAT.

    GO FOR IT IF U NEED A PRACTICE

    The book is good enough to give you a decent score in DI. The questions are divided into different layers of difficulty.The book also familiarises us in every section in great depth.

    The people having time limit problems may in particular buy this one. the practice this one gives really helps to reduce the time.

    But there are also certain parts, like convert the information to a pie chart, draw a bar graph etc.... which i feel is a bit crappy. They may help us to be familiar with the proc...

    Really Nice

    I got this book after reading many a recommendations online but I am somewhat dissatisfied. This book does not contain any tricks to solve. It contains a lot of questions to practice and I find it sufficient to prepare for the exam. But I still have to look elsewhere on how to solve quicker or as they call it for tips and tricks on various chapters.
