Geometry Fundas for CAT Quantitative Aptitude Preparation – Part 1

June 2nd, 2017 by

I got a lot of feedback via emails and texts that people are looking for a post on geometry. I have been avoiding it for sometime because of two main reasons: a)      It is not one of my strong areas. b)      It takes a lot of time to draw the diagrams that are sometimes required to explain the fundas. The questions on geometry are the trickiest and consumes the maximum amount of time as compared to the questions on other topics in Quantitative aptitude that is why, I have compiled a list of fundas that you might find helpful in solving CAT level questions.

IBPS PO 2015 – Details about the paper pattern, structure, difficulty level

October 4th, 2015 by

Given below is the feedback about the IBPS PO 2015 paper that we got from one of our students. We thought it will be beneficial to share it with our other students. The IBPS PO Paper was moderate and well balanced. ENGLISH RC - I left out the RC portion. But managed to get a glance of it.

Questions like "Which of the following statement regarding the passage is NOT TRUE" were also there. Antonym/Synonym - These were good. Some words were

The question of when to start preparation for IBPS PO 2014 exam boggles many students and frankly speaking - there is no right answer for it. However, what I have seen after teaching students for around a decade is this - it requires roughly 300 hours to prepare for IBPS PO properly.
