Modern Maths is a part of the Quantitative Aptitude for CAT exam. Although it is not as important as Geometry or Algebra but it is not something that you can ignore Typically you get 5-6% of the CAT paper or 15-18% of Quantitative Aptitude portion from Modern Maths. More often than not, the questions are based on basic concepts and their applications. Rarely you get a question which is based on a formula that a class 10th student would not know. A lot of students spend a lot of time mugging up fancy formulae. It would be much better for them if they just knew the basic concepts of permutation and combination like nCr and nPr. The topics and chapters which are covered in the Modern Maths syllabus for CAT 2015 exam are as follows:
Permutation and Combination
Sequence and Series
To understand the relative importance of these Modern Maths topics and also to understand what you should study in the above mentioned chapters, you should watch the video given below.
