Arithmetic forms an important part of Quantitative Aptitude for CAT exam. Not only you get quite a few direct questions on the arithmetic concepts in the Quant section, but you also get some applications in the Data Interpretation section. Some of the calculation tips and tricks that you learn via percentage can be applicable in many other areas.
