Lakshya Kumar, CAT 2019 topper (99.99 percentiler) shared his preparation strategy for CAT DILR sections. Lakshya stated - “Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning section during my preparation phase was attempting a wide variety of questions from the previous year papers of CAT and then re-attempting them. During the mocks, I made sure that I read all the question sets fire and then picked out the ones that were easy and could be managed instead of doing the questions in order of question paper. After all, CAT is never about attempting all questions but getting one more right than your competitors”.
