Hi Shruti
Can you please suuggest the best CL center in delhi except CP cause I want some attention and query seeions?...

Seriously people, everyone should go for the coaching center nearest to your home. Its your own preparation and understanding of the concepts that will take you through. For those with work ex and having attended a full time coaching class before I think it would be advisable to join only the test series. For those without any coaching experience its better to go for the full time coaching.
I found CL's VA/RC tougher than TIME. TIME'S LR/DI tougher than CL'S. As for Quant i found everything tough!
But yes, this is only my view.

IMS seems to have fallen down the pecking order from its position it had in the pre-online days,though the VA part of IMS is very good. But CL has a definite advantage when it comes to online prep. CL was very close to the real CAT than even the AIMCATs(strictly my opinion). I would suggest you to take CL as the second test-series

as far as i knw CL is providing discounts 2 cat retakers..so try n check once more...and i think CL scores little betr thn IMS...tats my personal view.


No doubt that CL scores better over IMS in all the respects but i advice IMS basically for VA.There is no comparison for IMS's VA

I too opted for CL and TIME last year but i had access to IMS papers as one of my friend was a full time student there so didnt go through the entire IMS papers but VA only.

If ur VA is not good , then go for IMS else go for CL as not much of difference is there in the level of questions for QA and DI of both TIME and CL

hey vivek
no doubt what u r telling is true but....but now i think v hav to go with CAT flow. CAT format has changed so it has become necessary for all us to focus primarily on online preparation. we ll be facing additional challenges to cros this CBT test.... for ex-- now during CAT v wont be able to underline imp info, v hav to re-draw important figs. and re-write imp data points. dats y it is very imp that while preparing for online CAT v shuld refer lots of questions online, read online and appear for tests online.....
in this matter i think cl n time r still focussin on paper based coaching; i found few gud websites including pg, tg, mycatstudy.com and *********.......these website are gud for online CAT prep. just bcaus cl n time are famous, v shuld not bcome part of this rat race...


Hi,

i never said a complete no-no for online resources but its always better to start with paper based material and then move on to online resources for practice purpose as its difficult to get grasp of the concepts online. GMAT is also online but people always start with OG,Kaplan and other books to get a grasp of the concepts. Online tests and readings can be used in parallel with paper based material or in the later phase of preparation.

The trouble with being in the rat race is that even if you win, you're still a rat

Puys ,

My thoughts.

1) Since CAT 2010 will be online.. CL online exams are smoother and better without any hiccups. I was part of their Classroom program for CAT 2009 and being an average student got an IIM call.
2) Secondly , CL PDP boot camp post CAT for IIM Call Getters is really good. A must attend.

3) CL Staff members and center heads are more friendly compared to TIME. I have called TIME offices in bangalore , they are sometimes rude and give vague replies

4) Finally , It depends on the student completely to crack CAT.. Coaching institutes merely guide us.
