where is books of CAT is available

Mayank Chowdhary 12th Nov, 2019

Use word power made easy by Norman Lewis, Abhijit Guha Quantitative Aptitude and Arun Sharma book. Go for high school English grammar and composition by Wren and Martin. For verbal reasoning, go with Pearson by Nishit Sinha. Use Quantum CAT by Sarvesh VERMA too. If possible try to have TIME or CAREER LAUNCHER books too, they will help you a lot. And where these books are available toh they are there in the market, you can search them in the stationary book shops near you. And if not available, then they are available on amazon too from where you can order. Thank-you.
