Honestly there is a difference between just finishing the syllabus and preparing for selection in cat. See you can finish the syllabus if you'll work really hard in one month but trust me only unless you are extraordinary you won't be able to get selected for iims or other good colleges. But don't loose hope you should fight till last.

All the best
for CAT preparation there are a lots of institutes in delhi but out of them only a few is worth joining. TIME and career launcher are undoubtedly good brands and give extraordinary results but alchemist and MBA Guru are also good as they pay more individual attention than the big brands.
FMS or the red building of dream as they say is one of the most sought after management schools in our country. To get a call from such an institution with so much of competition is not an easy task. Even with the SC reservation you have to score a minimum of
to get a call from FMS due to limited number of seats and such a high competition.
Hope this helps Thank you.
