Except for the section on Logical Reasoning, all the other sections of NMAT get well covered with a good preparation for CAT. However, it is 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 in 120 minutes means that the candidate needs to be really quick in solving the questions.
The questions in reasoning section of NMAT are:
Series, Analogies, Odd man out, Coding & Decoding, Symbols & Notations, missing numbers in the figures and Direction sense.
Analytical puzzles (Blood Relations, Linear arrangement, Circular arrangement, Distribution,Comparisons and Selections).
Critical reasoning (Assumptions, Conclusions, Inferences, Strong & Weak arguments, Courses of action, Cause & Effect, Assertions and Reasons), Deductions, Input / Output, Decision Making and Venn Diagrams
You can study these topics from reasoning Study Material - SM 1002005 and SM 1002007. SM 1002007 covers the topics - Series, Analogies, Odd man out, Coding & Decoding, Symbols & Notations, missing numbers in the figures, Input/Output, Blood Relations and Direction sense. These topics were introduced to the CAT students in Logic Basics - 7, 8 and 10 (LRHO 1002007 and 08). One can quickly get thorough with these topics by solving the exercises from SM 1002007 and SM1002017. Particularly the questions based on Coding & Decoding and Symbols & Notations test the speed of the students. SM 1002005 has two exercises for each of the topics in analytical puzzles. There was a thorough discussion of each of these kind of puzzles in Logic Basics - 1, 2, 3 and 4 (LRHO 1002001, 02, 03 and 04) and in LRPEs and LRTs. Venn Diagrams are discussed in Logic Basics 5 and 6 (LRHO 1002005 and 06).
SM 1002005 has four exercises (Ex 7 (a), (b), (c) and (d)) on Venn Diagrams. Students may solve the exercises 7 (a) and (b) first and then from 7 (c) and (d). As far as NMAT pattern is concerned, exercises 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 NMAT model deductions were discussed in logic basics 10 (LRHO 1002010) class. The practice exercises for NMAT model deductions questions are provided in SM 1002005 and that for Input / Output & Decision Making questions are provided in SM 1002007. Input/ Output questions are quite regular in NMAT exam.
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.
