That's the best piece of advice on this thread....seriously

All it matters is keeping your cool....everything else will follow logically :thumbsup:

If u have full 24 hrs in hand for the next 76 days, u r in a better position than most of us man!
so, 76*12=around 800 hrs in hand!!!
i definitely feel that u should aim for the max.
though its been over 13 mts since i've joined classes, i must admit i've done almost 80% of the prep. over the last 1.5 months.
and, till D day, i'll be involved in some or the other activities in my final yr.
so, I should be saying that i have a problem!

Well Guys even I am in same boat. Although I enrolled for CL Mock CAts about a month back, I have been getting about late 80s in percentiles and for last 2 mock cats they have been secenties.

Now i wanna join a regular coaching,.....will any institute have any batches srarting in recent days

Hey nanosec...

I hope "del" means you reside in Delhi...

Anyway, many institutes have so called "crash courses" for CAT starting around jsut this time....and even if you are a bit late, they will take you in and help you make up for the time you supposedly lost. You can join these courses if coaching is all you are looking for. But first inquire about the class and more important if it is one of the "factories" (i.e. PT, TIME, IMS, CL or any other which has multiple centers), then please do inquire which particular center has a better rep in terms of faculty and stuff.

Trust me it matters...

But in the end....suno sab ki karo man ki

Listen to everyone, do what you think suits you best...After all you should know whats best for you.
All The Best

Dhiraj...first things first....two important words when it comes to preparation strategy which have been harped time and again by CAT veterans and experts ... IT DEPENDS....individual to individual...

of course everyone here will give you their own suggestions, but you have to decide for yourself which plan would suit you the best...

There already have been many strategies thrown around on PG...

a few of them have been listed on this very thread too...go through them...reflect, and come up with your own strategy ( preferably before November 19th..:biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:)

And yes....Its Never Too Late ( Corny, I know but true !!!!!!! )

HTH

If you are reading this thread-

1) Do SMART PREP- Identify your strengths and focus on improving it
2) Pay attention to the really important topics in Quant - Geometry and Numbers in QUant and make sure you are absolutely dead sure of these two topics and then move on to other topics.
3) BE COOL.


Try setting up a deadline to finish all the basics - Say October 1st..Start taking tests from then... And then work on getting every concept right from all the questions you couldnt answer in those tests.

Thats all I can think of 😃
