Most organized material.

Students who do not like going to coaching centers can rely on this one book for their preparation to any exam; or even just for fun. Loved this. Carefully elaborated synopsis for every possible area in quantitative aptitude, and exhaustive set of questions and worked out solutions. Can't ask for more!

good but not for CAT

The book is quite good specially if you are preparing for placements, it has decent question bank, umpteen number of short tricks and well prepared theory, but I must say if you are planning for CAT don't rely on this book, it has no difficult questions, worthy of CAT level for that look out for other options, the book though got me placed.
