Hi Puys,

I am stuck in a dilemma for my preparation. After revising the concepts of quant, I am not properly able to judge how many questions should I practice to move to next chapter. Either I am wasting too much time on one topic or solving few questions of a particular topic. Also i have attempted only 2 mocks till now,so  things aren't yet clear so that I can judge my strong or weak area. Please if anyone can pitch in some words of advice because this problem is draining me completely.

@vijay_chandola @scrabbler @nits2811 @rishi1415 How is CL testgym? Is it really helpful to prepare oneself for cat level questions? Have not subscribed for any mocks this year, Also after CL and TIMES stop providing PDFs it becoming difficult to gauge my preparation. Please reply.
Faith restored :D Night is really the darkest before the Dawn :D

CL Stopped providing PDF Questions but the pdf comes along with ans. And the same is available once some1 takes the Proc Mock test. Test Gym is good to start with.

for me it was simple, arun sharma, cl & time material apart from this a lot of practice and joined aimcat for regular score update...and i guess keeping my cool and not taking any tension(on exam day too) helps a lot

Same here hunt4dj. I have completed all the LOD 2 questions from Arun Sharma. Although AIMCATS are turning out to be quite a mess with 80+ percentiles the order of the day. Looking to firm up the attempts as well as accuracy. 9-7 job time doesnt help much but on an average getting 1-2 hours studies per day.
