Before deciding that, please keep in mind that the GRE scores are valid for only 5 years starting from the day of your exam. My suggestion would be to consider taking the exam after your 3rd year towards the end of your vacation

First Be confidence , start with simple question then match with latest paper and upgrade your self you can do it

Vivek Jha | 3 days ago

Thanks for asking, i am grateful to share my views here. 1. Quantitative Aptitude:: Start with the basics Getting your concepts clear is the key for Quant. It is important for the candidates to start by learning the concepts which are used to solve questions in this section. Raghav shares, ?Quant was fairly easy and was based directly on concepts. So if you had sufficiently practiced all the quant, it is a cakewalk?. When you know the basic concepts, you must practice via examples. It is important to follow the concepts learned, and practice each concept by solving simple examples first, and gradually moving towards the difficult ones. Sarthak Nayak, CAT Topper from IIT Bombay, explains, ?My strategy for Quantitative Ability & Data Interpretation Section was to learn concepts, understand and workout on simple examples, then attempt difficult questions. By learning concepts and understanding them through examples, it was easy to understand and attempt difficult questions. To prepare for Quant section of CAT, books are the best source to learn the concepts and enhance your knowledge on a topic. Abishake Koul, CAT 2014 Topper, prepared from books and practiced from the practice papers available in the books. He says, ?The best strategy to prepare for your weaker section is to follow a book. I followed Arun Sharma for QA and also practiced from the same?. Best Books for QA Suggested by Toppers- How to Prepare for Quantitative Aptitude for CAT by Arun Sharma Quantitative Aptitude Quantum CAT Common Admission Tests For Admission into IIMs by Sarvesh K Verma Quantitative Aptitude For Competitive Examinations by Guha Abhijit The Pearson Guide to Quantitative Aptitude for CAT by Nishant Sinha Plan your preparation schedule Besides learning the concepts for Quant, it is equally important that you do not leave any topic uncovered. One of the important strategies to cover each topic is to make a Day-wise preparation plan and schedule some number of days to prepare for that topic. Allot the following number of days to the below given quant topics, Number System: Five days Algebra: Eight Days Geometry: Eight Days Permutation & Combination/Probability: Five Days Miscellaneous Topics: Five Days 2. Logical Reasoning And Data Interpretation You can follow these tips- Strategy for dealing with DI while attempting CAT should be very straight as well as flexible. Do not start solving any set immediately, but read all the sets first and then make a call on which set is more structured and has lesser variables in terms of conditions that can be put in a structured table or a format easily. Make a good choice across the sections and, having decided that, give all the time to that set only. There are going to be hurdles but that does not mean you leave the set and move on to another set, as you have already taken a decision and invested a lot of precious time in that set. You should make a sensible choice in picking up the right set and doing the right thing before investing any time in a particular set or just jumping from one set to another. Moving from set to set will exhaust you and kill your time. Even if you spend eight minutes in working out the entire set and the set is very clear, you can solve it immediately. Don?t be in a hurry that every two minutes you have to mark a question.Spend time on selection of the right set. Best Books for LR and DI Suggested by Toppers- Data Interpretation for the CAT by Arun Sharma Data Interpretation for the CAT by Nishit K. Sinha How to Prepare for Logical Reasoning for the CAT by Arun Sharma Verbal Ability And Logical Reasoning For The CAT by Nishit K. Sinha Verbal & Non-Verbal Reasoning by R. S. Aggarwal 3. Verbal ability and Reading Comprehension: Reading everything and anything will make you clear the RC's. Just don't be biased towards sports in newspapers as I am and you will do well. Another important thing. Learn to read online. CAT is not a paper based test. Try and find blogs and articles that will test your vocab and understanding in ways unprecedented. If you're serious, people might have already suggested The Hindu and the Financial Express(or the Economic times). Well, I have the same suggestion though I never followed it. Develop a liking towards reading and it will help you in your gdpi stages. If you're not a GEM, you might get a call or two as well. Use Grammarly extension to check your grammar mistakes. This is a greate tool to improve your English. Subscribe to Testfunda's newsletter. 5 words a day from today and if my calculations are correct , you will have learnt 1500+ words by the time you appear for CAT. Sweet! Don't just glance. See Understand Remember Engulf- be SURE. You already know of word power made easy and 30 days more to power full Vocab by Norman Lewis. Its cheap and good and useful. BUY it. And then - SURE. For grammar, I will suggest apart from the normal course material, The blue book of grammar and Punctuation. Best Books for VA and RC Suggested by Toppers- Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension by Arun Sharma & Upadya(New Adition) Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension for CAT by Gautam Puri Full Set of Books: Complete course Pack for CAT [Set of 12 Books] (Quantitative Aptitude, Data Interpretation, Logical Reasoning, Verbal Ability) Solve Previous Year CAT questions and Mock Tests.

Hello Likitha, The time period for the preparation depends on person to person. But the training will be done in 60 hours. But its always better to have a good rapport with GRE question formats to do faster.

Mamatha T V | 10 May

In my opinion any competitive exam involving time constraints and maximum usage of knowledge in a particular subject matter involving language needs cracking instead of solving. Practice, practice. With guided practice, you should be confident in about 4 months.
