In the last post we looked at some ways to learn new words - reading with context, flashcards, word group lists and studying by comparing words.
We had discussed about identifying words that are confused easily. In this post we will look at some examples involving these confusing words.
Now, will a misunderstanding cost you marks in the exam? Not necessarily so, because like we discussed last time, no questions simply ask for meanings of words. However, when you’re reading a block of text and reach this word where you are not quite sure of the meaning, that is enough to cause a pro
Take the previous papers of any MBA entrance exam and look for questions that ask for the meaning of a particular word. The chances are pretty low that you will find a multiple choice question of the format - “The meaning of X is:” followed by four options.
Doing the same thing for antonyms or idioms will probably not give you a lot of questions either.
So no exam is going to ask you for word meanings. If so, then why learn new words, antonyms or idioms if they are not asked as direct questions in the exams?
It starts with having a large list of words at your disposal so that you

First of all, a very Happy Republic Day to all our students (and other visitors here). Republic Day honors the date on which the Constitution of India came into force on 26 January 1950 replacing the Government of India Act (1935) as the governing document of India. The Constitution was adopted by the Indian Constituent Assembly on 26 November 1949, and came into effect on 26 January 1950 with a democratic government system, completing the country's transition towards becoming an independent republic. 26 January was chosen as the Republic day because it was on this day in 1930 when the D
Now that the euphoria or disappointment of CAT 2016 results has died down, some of you would have started thinking about CAT 2017. While approximately 500 students have already joined our online coaching course for CAT 2017, there are a lot of students who are confused about what they should do to begin their preparation. What sort of plan they should follow? What are the areas that they should emphasize on?
To help students with these queries, I will be conducting an online live class. Please register for the same by filling out the form given below and we will send you the link of th
CAT 2016 results were declared today and a common question has been what sort of score would have lead to what percentile. For CAT 2015 we had compiled a list with the help of our students and some other CAT aspirants who sent us their scorecards. We are working on the same for this year as well. We will release all this information in public domain and hopefully it would help future CAT aspirants make a better judgement.
If you want to contribute to this list, please email your scorecard to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Now that the results for the CAT 2016 Exam are declared, one of the most common questions that I get from students is which colleges can I apply to and which colleges can I get a call from. While there are no hard and fast rules to such things, I have still tried to compile a list of colleges that you can and should apply to. In case you have already applied to some of them, you will be able to access if you stand a chance at getting calls from any of those colleges.
I will be talking about the non IIM colleges in this blogpost. Also, there is still time left to apply for Post Graduate
CAT 2016 exam was conducted yesterday. A lot of rumors turned out to be just that - rumors. The paper was similar to what was asked in CAT 2015. As a matter of fact, it was a bit too similar. Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension was the easiest section like CAT 2015 and Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation was the hardest. Verbal Ability and Quantitative Aptitude was slightly tougher than last year but not too much. The number of Type-in-the-answer questions in the Quantitative Aptitude section went down drastically from 14 to 7 this year but that should not make too much of a dif
With only few hours to go for the CAT 2016 exam, I do not have any tips to offer. I do not keep you in my prayers as I do not believe in prayers. I do wish all of you best of luck (if a thing like that exists). Having said that, I do hope that all of you perform to the best of your abilities. Some of you have put in couple of weeks whereas some of you have been trying to battle competitive exams for years. I am sure some of you will end up doing better than expected and some of you would disappoint yourself. But what you need to understand is the basic fact that it is just a test. A good resul
