    Incredible for someone who has little QA knowledge.

    I started this book after a little warm up in Quants with the help of a different study material, so which implies that I knew some concepts already before turning the cover page of this book.

    The first day with this book was really enjoyable. The theory part is explained in an apt way along with the problem exercise. So one can expect thorough concept building plus problem practice from this book. I haven't finished the book but so far so good. The different levels of difficulty are providi...

    Hi

    Well i've heard a lot of CAT aspirants talking about the concepts and shortcuts used in this book.But from my experience i think the three level of difficulties part stands on top.I don't know what was in the mind of Arun Sharma when he wanted to publish this book,there is no explanation given for the Block review tests.Infact,i couldn't find solutions to the preassessment tests given before every block.But still its helpful in cracking CAT as i found some core difficult question in LOD3.

    :(

    For a first timer this book can do no good....Level of difficult is divided into three parts .but sometimes it becomes difficult to solve some probs from LOD 1 ...its also very hard to understand the basic concepts of some portions...Not a book for those who have just started preparing for the competitive exams...

    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...
