Hi Puys !! I know vocabulary play a very important role in CAT. A good vocabulary can easily fetch good percentile in CAT-2013. But I also understand its very difficult to learn all the words in short span of time. Even if you learn, you tend to forget words during exams.

Thinking about this. I came up with an idea, where we can use Meme and visuals to teach vocabulary. Visual memory have better recall value and you learn without putting extra efforts.

So Guys I need your ideas and suggestion to build a better vocabulary website.

a few mnemonics to kick off vocab prep for cat-2013


FortitudeForty +attitude

Jab kisi mein forty logon ka dum ho to usmein fortitude 100 logon se ladne ka aa jata hai.. Jaise humare sunny deol bhaiya!


Forestall

Four + stall

Ek se bure do ,do se bure fourAgar ek sath four lambe aadmi ek rickshaw pe baith jaenge to vo bichari chalne ka naam bhi nai legi.Matlab vo forestall ho jaegi!

ForlornFour+loan

Ek sath four loans uthaoge to kaise chalega bhai..Fir forlorn hona to obvious hai.Forlorn bole to sad,hopeless and desperate

ForsakeFor teri Sake

Koi apni girlfriend ke liye daaru peeni band kar de to matlab usne daaru ko forsake kar dia hai.Forsake matlab renounce or abandon completely.

wow! such a nice way to build vocab...keep up the gud work @smartppc

guys the new pagalguy style certainly seems to be catchier than before..lets start discussing vocab in some new and interesting ways as well..what say??

@varathawins i think what you can do is go in for second hand material of these institutes, since that is pretty cheap, around 1000 you should be able to get it..since majority of the material or in fact almost all the material is same every year, money should not be a concern
hello everybody. i'm varatharaj doing pre final year in mechanical engineering in coimbatore(tamilnadu).Right from the day i know about cat i started dreaming being an IIM er! MBA is my passion. im preparing for CAT 2013. As i was from a lower middle class background i cant afford to pay the coaching class fee. now iam preparing for CAT using the books from my college library.
but those books are really confusing and deviated from the actual CAT questions.i dont have a pc too. so i cant refer any online materials. i spend 4 hours daily for preparing CAT. my friend advised me that 4 hours of such preparations=1 hour of preparation by using standard materials like TIME,IMS. i went to TIME and ask them whether i can get the materials alone for a cheaper price. they said they will provide material only along with a course. and that course costs 20000! i was heart broken! i desperately need some standard books. i would be greatly thankful if someone is will to donate extra materials or old materials! PG is my only hope. so please help me! thank you all
IF SOMEONE CAN DO IT, SO CAN YOU!
