Free Class for CAT 2016 Online Preparation – Quantitative Aptitude

September 20th, 2016 by

CAT 2016 is just two months away. While that might not be enough if you are starting your preparation now but you can still make a significant difference in your percentile if you do the necessary hard work. I have seen a lot of students waste these precious last few days on topics like Remainders, Probability, Trigonometry, etc. instead of stuff like Geometry, Algebra that might be a lot more fruitful. I wanted to discuss the same with students of my online CAT coaching course but then I thought it would be a good idea to discuss this with a bigger audience. So, I decided to conduct thi

Teachers Day – Use coupon code GURU to get 10% discount on all courses

September 4th, 2016 by

While we do run offers from time to time, Teachers Day has a special place in my heart. In mid of 2012, I was still wondering about whether or not I should quit my job to focus fully on Handa Ka Funda. I had experimented with online content, videos, online courses - paid or free, and multiple other stuff but I wasn't really sure if selling a course online in India with no marketing and virtually no team was a viable business model. I was not looking at Handa Ka Funda as a startup or a big company but like a really small project which could generate enough money for a sustainable living. If

100 Day plan for Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation for CAT 2016

August 27th, 2016 by

Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation was probably the toughest section in CAT 2015 exam. I think it surprised a lot of students because of the difficulty level of the questions asked. Another reason why I believe it appeared a little too difficult was because the other sections were on the easier side. If you have a look at the scores vs percentile relationship on a section-wise basis, you would find that you need to do 12 questions correctly in the Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation section when compared with 18-19 questions in Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension or 14-15 q

Online Mock Test Series for CAT 2016

August 9th, 2016 by

For any serious CAT aspirant, an online mock test series is an important tool. You need to train your body and your mind so that it is ready to perform on the exam day. There is perhaps no better way to do it than writing mocks in a simulated CAT environment. Till last year, we used to outsource our Mock CAT tests to other providers. This year - we have decided to do it on our own. The main motivating factor behind this was not business (actually, if you look at unit economics - it is a bad business decision) but the hope that this would help us connect with our students in a better way.

100 Day plan for Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension for CAT 2016

July 27th, 2016 by

Is there enough time to prepare for CAT 2016? As the CAT 2016 exam draws near, fear and sometimes panic starts to set in and this the most common question that I get asked. I will try to answer the question in this post and probably two more. Short Answer: Yes Slightly long answer: CAT preparation requires anywhere from 300 hours to 500 hours of serious preparation. That much time is more than enough for you (and for anyone else) to reach his or her peak potential. So, if you can put in 2-3 hours on weekdays and perhaps a little more on the weekend, you have enough time. Really

Let Sherlock Holmes help you solve Sentence Exclusion questions in CAT

July 21st, 2016 by

Sentence exclusion questions test one important skill: to detect an anomaly in data. The fly in the ointment. The scratch on the lens. The bug in the software. The Van Buren supernova – that did not exist in the original Vermeer painting – which Sherlock must discover in order to beat Moriarty’s deadline of 10 seconds. Indeed, if approached logically, it should be a 10 or may be 20 or 30-second affair to spot the odd sentence among the given four. How to approach a Sentence exclusion question: Sentence exclusion is a new twist on the old Parajumbles question. A ‘
