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:
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.
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 theNMAT pattern by taking these mocks.
