HI there..I have been sitting in current placement drives organized by my University. But could not crack GD round yet i don't know what to do? I'm little discouraged.
I think you should get a frank feedback(you must be knowing the people you participated with, assuming you know people from your university) whether your content is the issue or the talking.
I feel just keep on reading and build content, with this you'll get confidence as well. And at the end of the day its just a GD, that really wont define how good or bad you are at wrk 😃 they need an elimination process and its GD most of the times 😃 so prepare and give your best shot the next time but take it lightly :)

Cheers!

Hello friends,

I am new to pagalguy. I have got calls from IIM A and B and I am expecting a few more. With tight work schedule I am not being able to devote enough time to prepare for GDs and Essays. I thought it will be good idea for many others like me, if we can share material, links etc to help each other.

As starters:
Currently I am using the following:
1. www.gdprep.com - have loved this site, it's started by two IIMA students. have less number so articles but they have been adding articles on a frequent basis.
2. www.indiabix.com - many gd topics but a chaos, need to spent a lot of time to find good points. there are likes and dislikes buttons. i read only if a post has over 15 likes
3. www.studyfreak.com - havent found it much useful yet nor have got enough time to browse the site in detail
4. I have liked the HBR page on fb, keeps popping articles when i visit facebook and reminds me not to waste time
5. Have downloaded news aps on my android phone. Good option while travelling

Interested people people join this thread

Cheers!
