Except for the section on Logical Reasoning, all the other sections of NMAT get well covered with a good preparation for CAT. However, it would be advisable for a student to work on his/her speed mathematics as some of the questions under Data Interpretation tend to be calculation intensive. Also, 120 questions in120 minutes means that the candidate needs to be really quick in solving the questions.
The questions in reasoning section of NMAT are:
The CAT students have received the reasoning Study Material - SM 1001805 and SM1001807 (both with solutions). SM 1001807 covers the topics - Series, Analogies, Odd man out, Coding & Decoding, Symbols & Notations and missing numbers in the figures. These topics were introduced to the CAT students in Logic Basics - 7 (LAHO 1001807). One can quickly get thorough with these topics by solving the exercises from SM 1001807. Particularly the questions based on Coding & Decoding and Symbols & Notations test the speed of the students. SM 1001805 has exercises for each of the topics in analytical puzzles. There was a thorough discussion on Analytical puzzles in logic basics 1 to 4 ( LAHO 1001801, 02, 03 and 04) and in LAPEs and LATs. Venn Diagrams are discussed in Logic Basics 5 and 6 (LAHO 1001805 and 06).
SM 1001805 has four exercises on Venn Diagrams. As far as NMAT pattern is concerned, exercise 7 (a) and (b) are more relevant.
Among the critical reasoning topics, Assumptions, Conclusions, Inferences, and Strong & Weak arguments were discussed in LR classes for CAT students. For the topics, Courses of Action, Cause & Effect, and Assertions & Reasons, if the students want to refer to some extra material apart from the T.I.M.E. Material, he/she can take the help of Critical Reasoning book authored by M.K. Pandey.However, these extra materials should be referred to only after the student has exhausted the T.I.M.E. Material.The questions based on deductions are different from the deductions questions given in CAT. These questions need to be solved using Venn Diagrams. NMAT pattern of deductions were discussed in logic basics 10 (LRHO 1001810). Input / Output questions are discussed in logic basics-8 (LRHO 1001808), students can refer to the reasoning book SM1001807 for the relevant exercises. Moreover, SM 1001815 has two exercises on NMAT pattern.
Finally, T.I.M.E.’s OMETs for NMAT are perhaps the best source for preparation.They are very close to the actual NMAT entrance exam paper and one should give maximum importance to these question papers as they provide very good exam practice to the candidates. The candidates can accustom themselves to the NMAT pattern by taking these mocks.
