THE SECTION ON REASONING: Reasoning is one of the important Test areas in CAT and other MBA entrance exams.
In CAT, it has been appearing along with DI and DS in one section, whereas in most other MBA entrance exams, Reasoning
appears as a separate section altogether.

What you need to crack Reasoning questions

(1) A sound knowledge of the fundamentals: Whatever be the concept on which a question is based, a good grasp of the
basic rules or methodology is the most important prerequisite to solve the question. For handling questions based on
deductions, the candidate should be well versed with the basic rules of logic, syllogism, the distribution table and the
Venn diagrams approach. Similarly, for handling questions based on connectives, a
knowledge of implications is a must. To crack questions based on analytical reasoning, a knowledge of how to make an
arrangement and an acquaintance with a variety of problems is indispensable.
(2) The correct approach: While solving problems, it is important …

Visit to italy

Hi friends. Here I am going to write some personal about my visit to italy. Rome a beautiful city, a historical city. When I visited colosseum in rome that was a unforgotable moment for me. The colosseum is a witness of Roman history. The colosseum is a witness of worlds greatest Empire, where the Democracy pioneered. This colosseum is one of the New seven wonders of the world.In 68AD Emperor Nero died and with him the Julio-Claudian dynasty.

How to prepare quantitative section of CAT exam

How to prepare for Quant?
1. Start early: Unlike engineering or degree exams, success in CAT can’t be guaranteed by last minute mugging up
of formulae. An aspiring candidate should give himself a time period of at least 6 months. The first 4 months
should be devoted to brushing up fundamentals and concepts in different areas. This can be achieved by practicing
a good variety of questions in different areas. The last two months should be devoted to analysis and consolidation.

2. Preparation of topics in Quant: Topics like Numbers, Geometry, Mensuration, Time and Work, Time, Speed
and Distance contribute heavily to this section. One must go through all the different concepts in each of these

3. Improving speed of calculation: 80% of the time is spent on cracking the concept in any question, 20% is spent
on calculation. To ensure speedier calculation, everyday in the morning (for at least five days a week), one must
practice calculat…
