August 31st, 2017 by

When we rebooted Handa Ka Funda in 2013, I had not expected that it would last so long. One of the most encouraging words came from Ankit Doshi (founder of InsideIIM) who had said that this is the right space to be in. Hitting 600 in the first year and 5000 in a few years is very much possible. To be honest, I didn't believe him then because I did not believe that so many people would start preparing for CAT online. But I am glad that I was wrong. To be honest, I believe a lot of CAT preparation has moved online. I believe that if you are a serious CAT aspirant and you are not studying onl

August 25th, 2017 by

A few years ago, CAT exam was divided into two sections – one was Quant and the other one was Verbal.

100 Days plan for Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation for CAT 2017

August 18th, 2017 by

Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation was probably the toughest section in CAT 2016 exam. I think it surprised a lot of students because of the difficulty level of the questions asked. Another reason why I believe it appeared a little too difficult was because the other sections were on the easier side. If you have a look at the scores vs percentile relationship on a section-wise basis, you would find that you need to do 12 questions correctly in the Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation section when compared with 18-19 questions in Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension or 14-
