suggest online course for quantitative aptitude for MAT in budget...

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 18th Nov, 2019
Abhijeet, almost all online courses come with a price. You haven't mentioned your budget so it is a difficult answer. Instead, what we can do is help you as how to prepare for QA section of MAT exam. QA can be categorised into Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry and Advanced Mathematics. Practise chapter by chapter and develop mental calculations. Like practise more of basic summation, subtraction, fractions and tables. Numbers, Percentage, Profit and Loss, Simple and Compound Interest, Ratio, Proportionality, Time-Distance, Time-Work, Mixtures, Averages, Partnership, Permutation and Combinations, Probability, Set Theory, Progression and Series, Line, Angles, Triangles, Quadrilaterals, Polygon, Circles, Ares, Volume, Height and Distance, Coordinate Geometry, Basic Trigonometry are few important topics.
Because this section involves mathematics and takes most of your time, your focus should be on solving the problems efficiently in the beginning. Even if it takes time, practise upto perfection. Practise as many questions as you can in the conventional way. As and when you get a grip on the subject, you can go for short cuts. Memorise tables, square roots, cube roots, conversion from percent to fraction, etc. Solve sample papers on Mathematics. In the beginning, do not worry about the time it takes. As you practise, you will get the hang of the subject and it will be easier for you.

Quantitative Aptitude for Competitive Examinations (by Abhijit Guha):
This book is quite comprehensive for various competitive exams, for both MBA aspirants and for those seeking jobs who need to prepare for the aptitude tests.

And durimg the exam, believe that a paper is not a place for Research given the fact that there is negative marking. Hence attempt only those question types that you are familiar with. Do not attempt any new kind of question in the paper that you haven't practised.Focus on getting 20-22 questions right in the first round and then go for the others. Attempt the QA section in 3 Rounds starting with the easiest questions and do not be afraid of leaving difficult questions unattempted. Go through the questions sequentially but will attempt only those questions that are from your area of interest or topics that I am comfortable with that are not lengthy and that do not confuse you in the first reading that can be attempted in about 90 seconds. Difficult questions from your area of interest will be marked in Round 1 and attempted only in Round 2. If time is available, attempt remaining questions in Round 3.

hello...I have applied for the mat exam and selected 5 mi colleges...i have a doubt that should i need to apply to those MI selected institution seperately with another application form???

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 15th Nov, 2019

hi,

once the mat result is out you need to register  separately  for the colleges in which your cutoff criteria matches and you want to pursue the management course. Every institute/college may have a separate MAT cutoff and admission process. At the time of applying for MAT, candidates get an option to select the code of their preferred college/institute. Candidates are also required to separately apply for that particular college/institute.
