Hello suraj, Please note there is no fixed strategy to clear entrance exams like CAT.

But still listing down few pointers that could be beneficial to you

1. Practice. This is the key to crack any exam. The more you practice the more confident you would be.

2. Understand the concept and logic. Just blindly practicing or solving will not help. You must know the concept and the logic used. Or else it will be like rote learning. And a little twist in the problem you would be stuck

3. Derive shortcuts. The most essential part for any entrance exam. Entrance exams are not like your school exams where every step counted. Here the end result is not important. And if you waste time in solving a problem then you would not be able to solve maximum questions

4. Timing. Initially solve the papers where you answer all questions without a time limit. But as the exam time approaches solve the paper by timing yourself.

Please note to score a good percentile in these entrance exams you need to solve maximum questions correctly within a short period of time.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck...

Dear Aspirant,

There are no formulae or tricks or short cuts to help you crack the CAT. If these were there, then everybody would have been doing MBA from IIMs.

Therefore, instead of relying on books that promise shortcuts, etc. focus on sincere and serious studying, a lot of practice and dedication. However, there definitely are tricks or techniques which facilitate answer the question in the CAT but thats limited.

Joining a good coaching class is highly recommended instead of relying only on self study. Coaching class an provide the require support from experts, practice and which will build your confidence. 

Best wishes

CAT requires qualitative, not quantitative preparation. When it comes to CAT preparation, the teachers create the real difference. There are institutes which provide good coaching to achieve 90 percentile like Time institute, paramount coaching. CAT is an exam that tests your expertise in 3 basic fields:-

1.Mathematics and data interpretation.

2. English and reading comprehension.

3.logical reasoning.

If you are serious for CAT, you cannot ignore any one of the sections. One has to be a jack of all the three sections to ace the test, this becomes more important since one never knows what the composition of the CAT paper is going to be next year. For more details and to know more about the strategy for preparation of CAT exam, You can search about the latest pattern of exam from the given

Moreover you need to be focus and try to cover as many topics as you can , so that there will be no failure side.
