Common Admission Test commonly known as CAT is a computer based test in India held for admissions into IIMs (Indian Institutes of Management) and other B-schools.

For section I Quantitative Ability: Target areas in which you are strong first. Donít get stuck on a topic and avoid wasting too much time on one question.

For section II Vocabulary and English: Attempt vocab questions first, these are the question that take less time and are often solved under a minute, then follow on with reading comprehension, logical and verbal reasoning.

Managing your time with work: A lot of participants of CAT are people who are working side by side, for such people managing work with preparation can be quite troublesome, in such cases they must make full use of their weekends and also study for a couple hours to keep things moving smoothly and the flow alive.

There is no problem if you cannot join coaching institute for preparation of CAT owing to distance issues. You have two options. You can completely do self study or you can opt for correspondence or online coaching. If you opt for the second option, then there are several coaching institutes which offer such opportunity. However, the best coaching institutes in this field are TIME and Career Launcher. If you go for the first option, then you need purchase books of aptitude and english and prepare yourself. Since you are in second year, so you should start with low level aptitude books and then go for the higher level ones. You can start with RS Agarwal Quantitative Aptitude and Verbal and Non-Verbal and then can switch to Arihant's Quantum Cat followed by Arun Sharma's Quantitative Aptitude for CAT. You can start your english from word power made easy and also solve previous years papers and give various mock tests online. Even books with mock test papers are also available. Apart from this, keep reading newspapers daily and education and business magazines weekly or monthly. If you prepare well and have confidence you can definitely crack CAT with a good percentile.
