    Summary Of The Book

    The Common Admission Test (CAT) is a computer based test that tackles quantitative ability, data interpretation, verbal ability and logical reasoning. It follows the multiple choice question format and the final results are decided on the basis of percentiles, which are derived from scaled scores as matched against the overall score in the test. A candidate needs to be quick at understanding and answering the questions in order to score maximum marks. Securing a high rank in this test will ensure a seat in one of the illustrious IIMs and other Business Schools.

    This guidebook developed by Rajesh Balasubramanian contains all relevant concepts and topics integral to the purview of the CAT and each chapter tackles theory and then moves onto solved questions, exercise questions and finally the important CAT questions. The subject matter tackled in this book are Averages, Profit and Loss, Percentages, Linear and Quadratic equations, Ratios, Mixtures, Speed, Time and Distance, Progressions, Simple Interest, Inequalities, Probability, Trigonometry, Geometry and Compound Interest among many other topics.

    Quantitative Aptitude For The CAT Common Admission Test contains twenty-seven chapters developed by Balasubramanian. Another plus to the book is the definitive solutions that are detailed and comprehensive in nature as they tackle the entire gamut of problems so presented across the book. The end of each chapter features CAT questions that are graded across both Level 1 and Level 2 of the examination. Balasubramanian is even persistent in further embellishing the book by including original CAT QT questions from 2006 to 2008 with their respective solutions and also developing mock CAT papers in the same format. These include solutions for two of the three Mock papers developed by the author.

    Closely mimics CAT (Chapter wise and difficulty wise)

    At the outset, let me introduce myself as one of the people who contributed in a very small manner in the massive effort of Rajesh to come out with this book. So, take this review with a pinch of salt!

    One of the things that we constantly reminded ourselves during the construction of this book is to stay very, very close to the level of questions that are asked in CAT. There were two dimensions to this. One - the chapter wise distribution of the questions should mimic CAT questions. (more qu...

    An excellent book to practice CAT level questions

    The book does cover basics. Has pretty good insights - not just formulas - but well explained core concepts.

    What is more useful to a CAT aspirant is the CAT level questions that are given for each topic. These questions are challenging - and the explanation for these questions help you gain fabulous insight into the concept that is tested.

    The framework with which some topics have been outlined helps effective learning. My favorites are Permutation Combination, Geometry, Number Theory and...

    Could have been a great book, but the author is more interested in getting reviews for the book.

    First of all, I really think this could be a great book, as no doubt the author is very knowledgeable and his approach seems to be good. But the fact is this book in its current edition is quite average. The reason- lots of printing errors. At first, I was really impressed with the format and was noting all the errors so that I can mail the author and help him in removing the errors but there are so many of them. for example- on page 24.14 Geometry- the author has derived the formula for the ...

    Excellent is the only word!!!!

    Before this year, I had written CAT 2 times before. I got 92%le in QA the 1st time and 50%le the 2nd time ( though I managed 90%+ overall both times). Fortunately I started using this book in my 3rd attempt and it is a boon to the guys who are on the weaker side as far as QA section is concerned.The book clearly states its objectives and has around 20 questions in each chapter. Rest assured at the end of solving these questions you will be armed with supreme confidence in these. What makes th...

    Fantastic

    The book is a terrific prep for the CAT in not only is it comprehensive but also well structured. Aspirants with no exposure to quantitative aptitude questions might find it above their heads - but for those who are aware of what the CAT entails, this is a must read.
