    Must have for a better CAT preperation!

    Arun Sharma books are quite comprehensive in nature. While it does not always contain the super-magical tricks of question-cracking that most tutorial materials have, you can expect it to be a strong companion in your endeavour to crack CAT. It is complete with both theory, solved questions and questions for practice. Highly recommended for someone looking to have a full-fledged effort at CAT.

    And as always, amazing service by Flipkart with superior packaging and speedy delivery!

    Patience is the key

    This is an excellent book for a long term study plan as every content of the syllabus is exhaustively covered. One needs patience to finish this book. If you are looking for a book that can help you to cramp and skim through the contents then this book is not for you.

    For beginners, its the best book to start with.

    Cheers !!!!

    An Excellent Choice for a Methodical Preparation

    This book is the right choice for those preparing well ahead of the examination. By the time one exhausts the sea of verbal exercises that this book offers, one is more than ready and programmed to take on the Verbal Section. Although the passages in the book were quite long it helped me build a determination and ability to concentrate for longer spells of time. Please go for this book, if you have five to six months at hand; and from then on hardwork and a determined methodical approach will...

    Expected a better product

    Not a good book. Purchase only if nothing other than brand motivates you.
    1. RC questions are not of CAT type. (Apart from some previous year passages)
    2. RC solutions are simply bad, it frustrates you.
    3. A typical solution goes like: "C is the correct option as clearly stated in first paragraph" (while you think, even option A and C are similarly mentioned, and why they shouldn't be the answers).
    4. As you go on to solve the passages, the makeover is such that your interest in solving them...

    Good as a starter

    This book is like VA for dummies. I would recommend it to those who have a weak verbal area, as well as those who want an expertise in RC. But this book is quite lengthy to complete, and quite frankly it is like a challenge to grasp it all at one go.

    A Lot of Practice Sets

    This is a really good book.

    There are a lot of practice sets, but some where this book lacks the advanced skills to tackle the comprehension passages.

    At beginning there is a good strategy given, but it is not helpful at every condition. Book is good for long passages that are information based, but not helpful for short passages that are inference based.

    You can not expect everything form single author, but overall book is really good for practice.
