Hi friends,
I am self-preparing for CAT 2012.
It is recommended that every CAT aspirant should be acquainted with current affairs and issues. I read newspapers daily but I fail to understand most of the financial and economic issues and discussions because I do not have any knowledge of economics or finance. What should I do ? Please help.

I know it is really demotivating to read ET when u dont understand most of the terms.
i would suggest u to learn basics of finance from someone , or get hold of Byju GDPI videos which are very useful.
There is always li ght at the end of the tunnel .. Do not ever give up. CAT 2011 : 99.61 C/L/XL/FMS
