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.

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.

It starts with having a large list of words at your disposal so that you

Decision Making is perhaps the most important area when it comes to XAT preparation. Questions on Decision Making have been asked in XAT for quite a few years.

In 2012, Decision Making became a section of its own and if you were to look at it purely from a scoring perspective – it make the most important topic for a student who is planning to write the XAT. It so happened because Quantitative Aptitude, Data Interpretation, L
