CAT is divided into two sections:
1. Quantitative Aptitude and Data Interpretation
2. Logical Reasoning and Verbal Ability
Looking at the data of past few years, both sections have 30 questions each. A student is given 70 minutes for each section.
Quantitative Aptitude (20/21 questions) is basically questions which test your mathematical prowess. It can be further classified into 5 broad categories:
Maximum number of questions are asked from Algebra and Geometry.
Data Interpretation (9/10 questions) consists of questions based on pie charts, tables, etc. In these kind of questions, you would be given a large amount of data and questions will be based upon that data.

Logical Reasoning (9/10 questions) consists of questions based on puzzle and logic. Once again, it is not something that you can really prepare for in terms of concepts. But there are a variety of questions that you can practice on it. Looking at past year papers is a good idea.
Verbal Ability (20/21 questions) checks your mastery over the English language. It can be broadly classified into two categories:
