  Hello Guys

I am sure many of you, by now, must have already taken most of your MBA competitive exams. Now, after you have relaxed a bit, you must be having three questions in your mind unanswered- 1) Should we actually look for a GD/PI training or things can be managed without a formal training? 2) Where to go for THE BEST GD/PI training in Kolkata? 3) When is the right time to start the formal training?

I must tell you guys, with a tad-bit of practical experience I have, never commit the mistake of not going through a formal GD/PI training. Believe me, selection criteria are primarily based on the scores of your GD and PI. Scores of competitive exams just act as a filter to select few out of many. It might so happen that you have scored well in the national level and still you lost the chance of getting selected just because you could not prove your worthiness at the time of interview. And believe me, inability to convert a call is the worst feeling in the world. It feels like all your yearlong efforts were exercises in futile.

Now the question is where to look for the best GD/PI training in Kolkata? I took the formal GD/PI training from BACKSPACE CONSULTING LLP. And believe me guys, this is one of the turning point in my life. I converted all of my calls. Backspace does not only train you for GD/PI, it is training for life, training which would help you at every point of your career.  No one would provide you as many as number of mock interviews as backspace does with such flexible timings.


You can find my testimonial in this link http://www.backspace.net.in/details.php?id=46. Needless to say, the mentor at backspace (PPD) is from IIM- Ahmedabad and 100/100 to his style of teaching. And earlier you start, better off you are. I started my GD/PI sessions just a day after I appeared for my CAT.

(Total) - ( not repeating at all) = 10*10*10*10*10 - 10*9*8*7*6 = 69760

Not as I would have wanted it to be :P Incorrect questions in my slot (slot 1) took away quite a lot of time.

But then one has to move on to XAT/TISSNET. So..will I.

All the best!
