THE C.A.T. APPROACH TO CRACK THE CAT


What is C.A.T. Approach?

This is the first phase of preparation and is imperative to build basic conceptual knowledge. A sectional view of the CAT reveals three areas of testing – Quantitative, Logic & Data Interpretation and Verbal Ability. Performance in each section is linked to your ability to connect with the fundamentals therein.

Not knowing a concept can be a huge deterrent in effectively tackling a question; for example, it is virtually impossible to solve a question on “cyclic quadrilateral” without knowing what is one. Further, each section differs in the range of concepts involved - the “Quantitative Section” has a greater diversity of concept areas as compared to the “Logic & Data Interpretation Section”, the latter being more practice intensive; while the “Verbal Section” has more concepts to be familiar with in the “Usage & Grammar” area as compared to the “Reading Comprehension” area.

This difference in the sensitivity of each section to concept-intensiveness determines the time to be devoted to each section during this phase of preparation. It has been observed that a thorough awareness w.r.t major concepts can take a test taker to a performance level of 75 percentile in the CAT.

The C Module comprises ~3500 questions that enable you to strengthen your fundamentals across the areas of Quantitative Ability, Data Interpretation, Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension. Assess and build your conceptual clarity with the help questions that have been classified on the basis of their difficulty levels.
