Manage your time accordingly in the exam. That's where a bit of competition ends as people get confused about how to progress. For this you'll need to solve lots of mock exams to be thorough with the habit. Quant is slightly higher than CAT with the focus on geometry, modern math, compared to basic arithmetic. GK is a separate section and it is focused on business awareness with a sprinkling of static and general GK questions.
Coming to the books part, then solve 50 gears papers a book by Ajay Singh and TK SINHA. For verbal ability and reading comprehension section,
Word Power Made Easy’
– by Norman Lewis and ‘
Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension for the CAT’
- by Nishit K Sinha.
