Algebra is one of the most important topics when it comes to Quantitative Aptitude portion of the CAT 2015 Exam. The most number of questions in Quant, get asked either from Algebra or from Geometry. Even in Algebra, the chapter Functions has the most weightage. A common misconception is that you can leave out chapters like Basic Alebraic Formulae and do not learn too much about inequalities as you do not get direct questions in the CAT exam on those. But they forget, that a lot of questions in functions are based on the basic concepts that you learn in topics like Quadratic Equations and Inequalities. These are not things that you can skip while preparing for CAT.
Given below is a complete list of topics from Algebra Syllabus that you should be familiar with.
