Ans. Frankly speaking, TIME was not much of a help for me apart from the mock papers that i got. But nowadays coaching classes are necessary because they help a student to grasp topics faster and in a better way, which is not possible in every school. Yes of-course, if a student thinks that he/she can do well without them, please go on. My advice would be don’t solely depend on them because my coaching was not much of a help to me. It was self-study and practice and only practice.
Ans. It is actually quite difficult to cope with your studies along with your hectic work routine but to tackle this challenge i made a daily planner, scheduling all my daily activities, managing time and preparing a chart for each hour activity. I prepared a complete plan and followed this time table which helped me allot at least three hours every day towards preparation.
No restricted five point rule but from my end will share my own experience which when inculcated will surely help one. Prepare a timetable (i did the same as mentioned above) of how you plan on to complete your preparation and work hard. Try to spend a few hours a week enjoying yourself to make sure you don't feel burnt out as the exam approaches. Finally stay confident and relaxed during the exam. If you can handle the pressure you will enjoy taking the CAT.
I had taken at least 50 mock tests.
TIME AIMCATs – Definitely the best as far as VA/DI/DS/LR are concerned. This year VA/RC have been better. But nowhere near what cat VA/RC are like.
IMS SimCATs/ACT/MCT/FCT - very good VA/RC papers. DI and QA were calculation heavy and sometimes meters away from what CAT tests. Overall, decent papers.
CL Mock CATs/FLTs - Decent English, QA and DI. Sometimes, brilliant DI and no doubt one of the cheapest packages available in the market. I got some 30 tests for 2000 if i remember.

Well i also subscribed to BW 3 year offer in late second year. Then started reading reader's digest, India today and other books. Daily in the morning 6-8 used to attend those classes
Apart from the regular TIME Material, I had Xerox some IMS papers and did them off and on.
My preparation strategy was to mainly focus on Quant as that was my weakness. I started my preparation in September and prepared a timetable of what topics I would complete every week and stuck to it. Breaking the portion into manageable chunks and then knocking them off one at a time makes it more manageable. This is how I improved my weak area quant. Also, i was told for most engineers the Quant concepts are pretty simple, which means that it all comes down to practice. Therefore all I did was practice which went on and on.
My strong area was Verbal and my weak area was Quant.
Another benefit of solving a lot of sums is that getting it right gives your confidence a boost.
For Quantitative Ability, I tried to be generic and worked towards strengthening my basics.
I also tried solving the problems with alternate possible solutions which helps you a lot in analyzing each questions with different aspects along with increasing the ability of answering the questions right and on time.
I focused on the concepts for the Quantitative Ability and Data Interpretation section.
I feel that as long as your concepts are clear you can solve any question in the exam

For Data Interpretation, the key and strategy is to practice as much as you can.
I also followed the same and it supported me to make this area strong.
I did not really prepare for the Verbal Ability and Logical Reasoning section apart from reading the newspaper.
However, I know many aspirants suggest reading books to improve your grasp of the language. For verbal ability and logical reasoning, the best is to focus on reading comprehensions and increasing vocabulary, which you can do by reading the newspapers, searching for difficult words and learning their meanings.
How to prepare for logical reasoning for the CAT 1st Edition by Arun Sharma was the book given to me and I loved it.
The short answer is this check-list:
Grammar, pick up Wren and Martin for now (we know it is very boring but sometimes you got to swallow the bitter pill). Read the part-1 of the book in about two months (that is more than sufficient time),
I don’t know what to say for this section as I was pretty boomed up with grammar and vocab from childhood. But to follow up one can focus on following types of questions from past CAT papers.
Synonyms and antonyms: it is not sufficient to know the meaning of the word in the question. U will have to know the meaning of all other words in the options too.
You need to mug up aal the words and sentence correction questions from these papers. In each paper identify the word and sentence correction that you have a problem remembering, mark these words and revise everyweek.
All the best guys. Do well. May the force be with you and wishing u a bright future ahead.

All basic open ended questions. HR questions and questions related to thermodynamics, my engg background questions.
Only one point and the most imp of all which i would request all the aspirants to do is do your homework
have well thought out answers for questions such as "What are your strengths? Why are you right for that particular business school? Why is that particular program right for you?"
It shows organization and forethought if you know some specifics about the program to which you are applying and can explain why those features fit well with your career goals. For example, if you are applying to the Xavier Labour Relation Institute (XLRI), through some simple research you will discover that they are strong in Human Resource Development. Perhaps, you have worked with a recruitment company or have been a trainer in an institute. Relate these in the interview. Most important because I have experienced this throughout life.
