gg : CET 93.7% OMS.. CHANCES FOR GETTING WELLINGKAR PGDM GDPI CALL?
swapnila : Score please.


arand : HOW TO IMPROVE READING SPEED FOR CAT 15 EXAM?
vinnayraj : more important than speed is the comprehension.so you should focus on that.if you do not have the habit of consistent reading you can start with news papers(focusing on the editorial section) and magazines to develop the habit of reading.with practice you automatically increase the speed.improving ones vocabulary also helps greatly as there will be no pauses to understand and there are speed reading techniques as well that are taught in the classes.


arand : HOW TO IMPROVE VOCABULARY?
sridharan : Read a lot. Read newspapers, magazines, books etc.Practise essays daily.


sahilb : ASIM SIR PLEASE TELL THE REASONS TO CHOSE LBSIM OVER SRCC
asim : Good placement track record, batch profile.


rocky : ASIM SIR,I ASKED A LOT OF ALUMINIS FROM CHRIST AND THEY SAID THAT BOTH AMRITA AND CHRIST ARE SIMILAR IN TERMS OF PLACEMENT AND EDUCATION. MOREOVER AMRITA WOULD BE A BETTER OPTION IN THE LONG RUN SINCE IN CHRIST THERE ARE 700 STUDENTS OVERALL.
asim : The batch size is big and so is the list of companies visiting during placements, opt for Christ if you are capable of competing in a big batch


sk : HOW WOULD YOU RATE SIMS IN TERMS OF PLACEMENTS AND LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR FINANCE?
asim : Good


nishu : AS SIBM B AND NIRMA ARE IN SAME CATEGORY SO CAN BANGLORE LOCATION HAVE EFFECT ON PLACEMENTS

arand : HOW TO IMPROVE CALCULATION SPEED?
bhuvanaganesh : speed maths and practice


pooja : HELLO, I STARTED PRACTICING ON RC QUESTION FROM OUR STUDY MATERIAL , STILL I JUST DONíT GET THAT CONFIDENCE WHILE SOLVING RC QUESTIONS?
sridharan : Solving RC questions require techniques which you can slowly master by going through the solutions carefully. Ultimately it all depends on what you make out of what is written in the passage.

pooja : HI,AS U SAID TO INCREASE VOCAB, READ 1 FLASH CARD PER DAY. BUT I JUST FIND UNABLE TO RECOLLECT THOSE WORDS,HOW TO REMEMBER THESE WORDS??HOW TO IMPROVE VOCABULARY??
sridharan : Vocab cannot be improved by getting them by heart. You have to use them in speaking, writing and getting to know of their contextual meanings by reading a lot.


gg : HOW IS BIMTECH PGDM CORE PROGRAMME.. CONSIDERING THE FACT THAT IT WILL COST APPROX 13 LAC OVERALL..?
asim : Pretty decent.


ankur579 : @ASIM SIR WONT THE BRAND VALUE OF MBA FROM IIT WOULD COUNT IN LONG RUN? MY OTHER OPTIONS ARE BB & B LEVEL BSCHOOLS AS PER TIME RANKING.
asim : Answered check


ankur579 : @ASIM SIR WONT THE BRAND VALUE OF MBA FROM IIT WOULD COUNT IN LONG RUN? MY OTHER OPTIONS ARE BB & B LEVEL BSCHOOLS AS PER TIME RANKING.
asim : ISM Dhanbad does not have good track record of MBA placements, that is the concern, the brand value of IIT would surely help but to what extent remains to be seem.


arand : CAN I SKIP FEW MATHS CHAPTERS WHILE PREPARING FOR CAT
vinnayraj : the paper is a good mix of easy, medium-level and difficult questions..and the idea to crack the exam is to solve almost all the easy questions and they could belong to any of the topics.so it's better to cover atleast the basics of all topics and focus on the advance level questions of as many topics as possible to be successful in the test.it's not a wise idea to skip topics..


gg : CET 93.7%( SCORE 127)OMS.. CHANCES FOR GETTING WELLINGKAR PGDM GDPI CALL.....??
tarannumraza : may get welingkar institute of management bangalore


rocky : ASIM SIR, PLEASE REPLY.

razor : SIR ,OBC QUOTA FOR NC OBC APPLICABLE THIS YEAR?
asim : Yes reservation for OBC NC candidates is there in all Govt B-schools ( IIMs, IITs, FMS etc )


andy : HOW COULD WE PREPARE FOR ENRICHING OUR VOCABULARY???
tarannumraza : Hi ! vocabulary enrichment is a continuous process.read a lot- newspapers,magazines.make a list of the difficult words you encounter.when given in a sentence the contextual meaning is easy to understand.you can also use the RPS method- root word, prefix,suffix.this method helps you learn words faster.connect the new words to words you already know.this helps in recall.keep at it .do not give up even if you feel that you are not able to retain all the words.


bob : SHIVA BHASKARAN SIR,WHAT COULD BE HIGHEST CTC RANGE IN BOTH BSCHOOLS.SUGGEST ONE OF THEM FOR ME TO JOIN
shivabhaskaran : vit seven lakhs,christ seven and half lakhs


bhavan : GOOD EVENING SIR.KINDLY GIVE ME AN IDEA TO START QUANT SESSION BCOZ I DONT FROM WHERE I HAVE TO START
vjs : Start with topic where you are reasonably good to boost your morale.Simple to difficult should be the strategy.


bhavan : GOOD EVENING SIR.KINDLY GIVE ME AN IDEA TO START QUANT SESSION BCOZ I DONT FROM WHERE I HAVE TO START
shivabhaskaran : cat like other mgt. exams are skill based, that is its a combination of knowledge and approach. The concept is always the king and hence first master the basics. U can even start u basic prep. from maths cbse text books from seventh onwards, once u go through, u will get u r basics right then if u can solve the problems in sms, will help u to gain confidence and yar then yar u will do very in quant

saikumar : SCMHRD should be preferred. It is the best amongst the three you have mentioned.


razor : NC OBC FOR JAAT APPLICABLE THIS YEAR??,,DUE TO THIS,I HAVE APPLIED TO OTHER PVT B SCHOOLS ..PLEASE HELP
saikumar : We have to wait for the judgement from the court.


hemant : SIR IMI BHUBANESWAR PACKAGE IS 7.38 ACCORDING TO BROCHURE AND I HAVE OTHER OPTION IN MY HAND LIKE SDMIMD AND ITM-KHARGHAR. SO WHICH WOULD BE SAFEST OPTION??????????PLS REPLY..........
saikumar : Never decide on the B-School to join based on average salary figures. First of all the salary figures quoted are often misleading. Moreover it is the 'average' and there is every chance that you may get a far better salary than that or maybe not get placed at all!! Placements are a function of how you do ont he 2 yr MBA course and the state of the economy in the year when you graduate - both of which cannot be predicted right now. So go with the TIME rankings and select the right B-School.


arand : WHEN WILL CAT 2015 BE CONDUCTED?
vinnayraj : most likely in the month of november..


razor : FORE VS LBS VS IMI
asim : IMI New Delhi can be preferred


arand : I AM SCARED OF MATHS, WHAT TO DO?
vinnayraj : you are not alone..but the level of mathematics that is being tested in the cat is of school level.so that's one comforting factor.you can start by looking at simple topics such as percentages,ratio,averages to begin with and later try to cover other topics.but the key to learning is to enjoy and make it fun.and many people do not get good at maths due to the fear of it.so remove the fear factor first.and learn from the fundamentals in the classes and go home and study again to get better..


sk : HOW TO IMPROVE DI SCORES?
sridharan : PRACTISE, PRACTISE, PRACTISE


ayushi : HELLO SIR ONE WID NO WORK EX CAN ALSO GET A CALL 4RM IIM
saikumar : Yes...we have hundreds of students who have got calls this year and who have no experience!!


arand : HOW TO IMPROVE MY PURE MATHS ( TRIGNOMETRY, CORDINATE GEOM ETC )
vjs : Start with SM given. keep the pace with classroom teaching.Do the assignments regularly.


bhavan : GOOD DAY SIR.A SMALL DOUBT SIR,IN CAT EXAM WE SHOULD ANS ALL QUESTION TO GET GOOD MARKS OR TO GET 100%
sridharan : NO NOT AT ALL. yOU WILL GET NEGATIVE MARKS FOR WRONG ANSWERS.


pooja : 10TH STATE BOARD 92.30%, 12TH STATE BOARD 93.50% , B.TECH CS 83.70 %, WORK EXPERIENCE 10 MONTHS, HOW MUCH CAT SCORE EXPECTED FOR TOP 20 COLLEGES IN INDIA ?? PLEASE LET ME KNOW
vinnayraj : you have a very good academic profile..so you can make it a top b school by securing around 95+ percentile.but why stop at anything.aim for the top 3.i am sure you are very much capable of scoring 99+ which improves your chances of getting into all the top bschools..


sk : SRIDHARAN SIR CAN YOU TELL ME THE TOPICS TO FOCUS ON FOR GETTING BETTER IN DI?
sridharan : Most of the DI sets in the past years have been calculation based. So practise such type of questions more now. Slowly you can do other types which are logic based.

vjs : yes


mahe : FORE PGDM VS IMT DCP ?
