The first step required is to understand the areas that you need to be prepared in. You must make a list of the same. There are various authors specialising in each area like Wren and Martin for the verbal section, O.P Sinhal for quantitative ability, DI by Arun Sharma etc. Make sure you solve sufficient number of problems to understand the concepts well. If required you must join any training institute for guidance for these exams. You must certainly appear for the Mock exams conducted by institutes like TIME, IMS etc.

CAT exam preparation requires good planning.It includes
1. Quantitative Ability

2. Data Interpretation.

3. English (Verbal/Reading Comprehension)

For that you should possess good analytical skills, should know basics of maths of class x-xii
Your preparation for CAT will help you in solving problems of MAT.So it is enough that if you prepare well in CAT you will succeed in MAT also.

CAT is a test of your managerial aptitude and managerial skill sets like:

~ Time management
~ How you handle pressure and uncertainty
~ Decision making

Remember, CAT is not about solving 150 questions in 120 minutes.

It is about solving 90 to 95 questions with 85 to 90 percent accuracy.

Tips for the preparation:
Tip 1: Handle pressure and uncertainty well. And reap the rewards!
Tip 2: Sequence and prioritise-- your mantras for success
Try to solve the previous years question papers.

CAT Preparation Tips





Discipline is very important. Plan your preparation, maintain a fixed schedule and stick to it. There are three basic areas which arc tested in the MBA entrance exams.

They are verbal abil*ity, quantitative ability and data interpretation and logi*cal reasoning For verbal ability, read a lot. Since reading comprehension is an important part of this section, try speed reading (you have to train how to read and comprehend fast)

For quantitative ability it is most important to get your basic concepts right. Solve questions on arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, mensuration etc from the Class X books of CBSE and ICSE boards. For the data interpretation and logical reasoning sec*tions, refer to well known CAT preparation books from TATA McGraw Hill. R S Agarwal, S Chand. Pearson Education, etc.


You should also solve crossword and sudoku puzzles every day as this will improve your accuracy and aptitude. After you gain some confidence with your preparation, you can join lest series so that you get an idea about your current level of preparation.


As far as QA is concerned, algebra and geometry should be given the maximum priority. They should cover more than 50 percent of the paper. Give algebra 15 days and geometry six to seven days. Do them at a stretch. You have to spare some time doing three to four DI sets even, day. That would definitely push the comfort level in this area to a far more satisfying level.
