The questions asked in this test is similar to many other competitive MBA entrance exams. Students preparing for one exam will be able to attend all other exams. Officially, there is no syllabus for ATMA. Based on the pattern of questions asked in the previous year, the following syllabus had been arrived:

Odd-one-out Percentage Vocabulary

Reading the topics thoroughly would help you not in the competitive exams but also in improving your skills. Once you are well-versed in Verbal skills, you will be able to write essays in a proper manner with enhanced vocabulary and proper grammar. Instead of preparing with the motive to score good marks in the exam, focus your attention on gaining adequate knowledge.


For the above syllabus, there are a lot of books available on the market. Selecting the right book is the most important thing. There are many who have the habit of reading a lot of books once. This is not the right approach. Candidates need to choose a book for a particular topic and go through it more than once to get a conceptual clarity. It is important to prepare notes for each topic so that it would help in the frequent revision. Please remember to take the notes clearly. Otherwise, it would create unnecessary confusion.

Nowadays, it becomes easy to buy a book as most of the books are available online. Some of the important books needed for this exam are mentioned below

  • The book of SK Sinha named “The Complete Reference Manual for CMAT”
  • Quantitative Aptitude by R.S. Agarwal
  • Mission MBA MAT mock tests and solved papers by Tarun Goyal
  • A book of Rajesh Verma on Fast Track Objective Arithmetic
  • Word Power Made Easy by Norman Lewis
  • Quantitative Aptitude for MBA by Sulava Ee
  • 30 Days to a More Powerful Vocabulary Mass Market Paperback written by Wilfred Funk and Norman Lewis / Simon and Schuster.
  • The Pearson Guide to Verbal Ability and Logical Reasoning for CAT written by Nishit K Sinha

To improve the Vocabulary in a better way, read an English Newspaper every day. Try to find some unknown words every day and find the meaning. If you continue this exercise every day, then you can see a vast improvement in your vocabulary. For easy retaining, try to frame sentences using those words.

You can also refer to some topics on the internet. In certain sites, previous year questions are given. Practise those question papers too. The solutions for these questions are available either online or in some of the standard books.

You can find a number of materials of various institutes in the market. Select only those which are standard. But it always better to refer the books. These coaching institute materials can be used as a substitute only.
