Q.2 What were your strong and weak areas? How did you prepare and what special efforts did you put for improving weak areas?

Yes, because I took full time classes during my final year of engineering with Career Launcher. It helps as you know the various topics you need to cover, your best and weakest areas and the level of competition in the market. No because I went only for mock CATs in the year 2009 when I got through. I took mock CATs of CL, TIME & IMS in rotation so as to cover the different types of papers.

Q. 4 Review the coaching institutes and what was their role in your story?
For full time classes, I joined Career Launcher. It was my first exposure towards competitive MBA entrance exams and it helped a lot. I knew where I was and it helped me set a target. The study materials were excellent and, if practiced religiously, it helps a lot. Mock CATs are unavoidable as it gives a trend analysis of your preparation & performance and the level of competition across the country.
