Can someone, who has bought the e maximizer series this year, confirm, whether they are repeating the lectures from last year or are there newer sections and newer questions this year ??

I took the series last year. It helped to an extent, but due to time constraints, I could not complete all the lectures. But since I have some time now, I would really want to know, is the series the same or there are new things in it added from last year ?

My Experience with SIMCAT has been very bad.


I am a CA and a working professional and these mock series were my attempt to keep up with my preparation & benchmark myself with others. However, this seems to be in vain with SIMCATs.


In relation to SIMCAT 10, I would like to bring in light the distinction between  the concept of unpredictability and off-road,


1. The length of passages was in no where close to actual CAT pattern. You guys just copy pasted the entire passage from a source. Also, CAT is being accepted by many MBA colleges and they are a mix of medium-easy-difficult  questions. However, SIMCAT 10 VARC was trying to test on your reading speed and not on comprehension with such lengthy questions.

Further, the solutions to many VARC ques are vague without proper explanation.


2. DILR was good but repetition of a set eroded the very basic agenda of giving mocks.


3. Quant was also not of CAT pattern with weird explanation to climbing of steps question, 3D figure distance (with 63% attempted correct which makes me skeptical about whether majority of the test takers are engineers).


Overall this hasn't been a pleasant experience and it seems as if you guys are trying really hard to copy someone and might be hoisted by your own petard.

This is IMS's explanation for answer to Q-30 vARC We can see that sentences 4 and 5 are related. Put together they tell us that the current revolution (in communication) is not about the speed – speed was available even in the mid-nineteenth century when instantaneous communication was possible through telegraph. Now it is possible to relate sentence 2 to this theme – that the crucial change is the enormous reduction in cost of transmission and storing of information. So, 5,4, and 3 in that order make a logical sequence. Sentence 1 is related to this theme because it hypotheses what the cost of a car would be today if the price of an automobile had declined as rapidly as the price of computing power. Can someone explain how they ended up with 2 as the odd one out after explicitly saying that there is a link. On the other hand, they never mention why 3 is related but somehow that is not the answer.

the video solution states answer as 3 ... from sentence 6 onwards, replace 2 with 3. 3 is the right answer. Ex -  So, 5,4, and 2 in that order make a logical sequence.............

VARC Question-8 How is option 3 correct? Here's the quote from passage-"it is often found in heavy academic and bureaucratic prose. Inexperienced writers tend to overuse it." Now how can u say that Academic writers are inexperienced. Those are two separate points with no co-relation. The author is listing out reasons for passive not being popular. I feel that by saying 'Academic writers are inexperienced' you are making stuff up that the author hasn't said.

@CATerrorist yes, and I think this gives us the wrong impression that we must make similar assumptions while reading a passage. That could be dangerous.

In the same passage why 4th is correct not 3rd

The primary purpose of the passage is to:

1)emphasize that even though passive voice is longer and allows the object to be omitted entirely, it is unduly targeted by armchair grammarians.

2)indicate that use of intransitive verb, not passive tense, is responsible for evasive headlines.

3)show that the meaning conveyed by a statement is more important than its grammatical structure.

4)point out that grammar must not be blamed for the shortcomings of headline writers.


And is primary purpose is equivalent to authot intention ?? generally
