In the previous post, we covered the Dos and Don’ts of representing or structuring data and how to prioritise conditions. In this post, we will take a look at the type of reasoning sets that pose major challenges to the average test-taker.
After the previous posts, a few of you had commented saying that you are eagerly awaiting the post on the DI-LR section. The earnestness is understandable since most of you who are facing the SimCATs will know that the DI-LR section is one that will make or break your CAT.If it goes well, you will take that confidence into the QA section finish strong. If your performance on the DI-LR section goes south then you will start feeling the fatigue of 120 minutes of testing and will fade away in the last section. The latter was the case with most test-takers last year.
We did the first webinar in this series — Weighted Averages, a while ago, and it is time for the second one. This webinar — The Beauty of Ratios — is devoted to using ratios them maximally in Arithmetic. Those scoring above 70 might find some of the things discussed very elementary. Those scoring below 35 might find some of the things discussed very scary. But irrespective of scores, it ideal for those who are looking to take their skills on Time, Speed, Distance & Work, to the next level.
In the previous two posts, RC-1 and RC-2, we discussed 3 RCs from CAT 2017 Slot – 2 and executed a specific strategy — paragraph to questions — to solve CAT RCs that will increase your accuracy. In this final post of this series, we will solve the two remaining passages and fine-tune the methods discussed so far.
In the previous post, we discussed a strategy to approach RCs and solved an actual passage from CAT 2017 Slot 2. In this post, we will take up a few more passages from the same slot and execute the strategy.
So much weight does RC have on the CAT, so many are the difficulties faced by test-takers and so frequent are the queries that I receive about RC, that I thought that it will be best to devote a series of posts to cracking Reading Comprehension.
