Testing Post

Ahh..I know that starting again with PROBLEMS may seem problematic to many. But our life is full of struggles and the real winner is that only who is bold to tackle them and intelligent to cross them over. Many of you might have appeared in CAT earlier, may be multiple times, with no expected success. But that should not be a cause for worry. A great poet of our country, Gopal Das Neeraj, has wrote- “kuchh sapnon ke mar jaane se jeevan nahi ruka karta hai” which means we should not be disheartened if things have not gone

Some problems in life are unavoidable, like##;food, clothing and shelter etc.##;We need to work for them. By hook or crook, one needs to manage his gross body.

Strategy Game based DI for CAT and other MBA entrance tests

SG-01There have been questions, in recent years CATs quant and DI sections, based on some mathematical strategy games. These questions do not require much mathematical expertise but seek for your hidden intelligence. Just like many things which you might have studied at your degree college are practical i.e. useful but not practicable i.e. feasible. Also in a business school you learn so much business jargon and tactics but how much is practicable you learn only after getting out of school and enter business. Exactly same way you may know n amount of mathematics but that sharp intelligence, aptitude to solve More

MC-01At every step in life, we face diverse problems. They may be related to our family, health, education, career and much more. There can be no one who says that I never had a problem. Srimad Bhagwatam [10.14.58] says padam padam yad vipadam which means that at every step in life we face problems. Now how to eradicate our problems is the biggest problem. One thing is sure that we cannot escape the discomfort created because of problems of life. So wiser advice will be to find out the root cause of our problems and try to kill it. And More

POW2011Sometimes when we have nothing to do, we become inactive. But the subconscious mind keeps doing the things which give it pleasure. After the CAT - 2010, Tathagat office is busy in GD-PI prep for all the call getters. Although we have started our classroom batches for CAT - 2011 and are going to start our first batch for CAT - 2012 from this April, still TG.com seems to be inactive for past many days. There are many reasons(read excuses) for that. One reason with which TG came forward is that,"Yaar, ab CAT mein challenge waali feel nahi rahi." But More

GD-PI Gyaan Sessions for CAT 2010 Season and Beyond

group discussion for CATWe are planning to put up a series of informatory topics over the next few weeks to pep up your preparation for the most important part of your selection, the GDs and PIs.
