Share Your CAT 2010 Experiences

cat 2010 experiencesHmmm... I wonder if any of our students were brave enough to take CAT 2010 on the first day itself but one never knows. After the fiasco last year, we would be hoping that this year's CAT goes smoothly for all the candidates. But then again, who knows. Maybe Prometric and IIMs still need to learn a lot. But the most pressing question running through each candidate's mind is "Is the level of questions going to change from that of last year's?" So everyone who has taken CAT 2010, please share your experience here in terms of number of attempted More

Data Interpretation (DI) Questions For CAT

cat data interpretation questions di questionsA month back, I was sharing with my MBA classroom students my earliest days as a quant trainer. Working at a premier CAT coaching institute, I got converted from a CAT aspirant into a quant instructor. The very first class that I took was a disaster. I was supposed to take the easiest of topics in number system- HCF LCM. I prepared well for my first class, making notes and rehearsing for my delivery again and again. But the moment I walked into a class full of 50 to 60 students, my voice started quivering by itself. I developed a More

cat 2010 cat 2011 quant fundas...

I have been out of my writing spree lately, not because I have become lazy but because I had nothing to write about. Also, as our MBA test prep series CopyCAT is scheduled to start in our CAT CBT Club in August, I had to cover and finish a lot of ground in TathaGat and my personal life before I got busy with that. Although I am still not free with time, I decided I had neglected TG enough. But still there was no new article, nothing which could live up to TG quality at least. A week ago, I More

Critical Reasoning Basics- 3: Syllogisms

critical reasoning syllogismsWith my ITT JEE rank of 433, I would have got Mechanical engineering at both IIT Kanpur and IIT Delhi. My mother obviously assumed I would choose IITK as it was very near to my home. I was also sure about joining IITK. But the day I attended a counselling at IIT Kanpur, a place 18 km away from the city, I decided I did not want to be cloistered in place where the only thing I could do was to study. So I chose IIT Delhi over IITK. If I had not come to IIT Delhi, I would have More

For example, a CAT 2010 aspirants should regularly question himself €œAm I a 100 percentiler yet?€ This question has lot more to it than it seems. First, half of you would not even dare to ask this question as you do not possess the belief that you can be a 100 percentiler. That means you would not be even 99 percentiler and the race for CAT is already over for you. For those who DO believe that they can be More
