Teachers Day – 15% discount offer on all courses

September 4th, 2015 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

Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation Practice Questions – Free PDF for Download

September 3rd, 2015 by

Most students are perturbed by the fact that there is no great book / material available for Data Interpretation / Logical Reasoning for the CAT exam. The tests provided by coaching institutes, more often than not, are much tougher than the actual CAT questions. This is one of the key reasons I suggest students not to take their mock scores too seriously, especially when it comes to the LR-DI section. The challenge is becoming even more ominous since the launch of the new pattern where 1 full hour will be dedicated to Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation in the exam. The few books whi

How to prepare for CAT in last 100 days?

August 21st, 2015 by

100 days, for people who grew up in the 90s, was a thriller starring Madhuri Dixit and Jackie Sheroff. It was something that they talked about endlessly in school discussing the concepts of premonition and clairvoyance even though they could not spell it.

Just kidding! I will try to suggest a few things that you can do and you should do in the last 100 days so that you don’t mess up the CAT ex

Formulas and Fundas for CAT Quantitative Aptitude – Free PDF for Download

August 12th, 2015 by

Quantitative Aptitude is an important part of the CAT Syllabus. In CAT 2015, one complete section is dedicated to Quantitative Aptitude. Math is something that a large number of CAT aspirants are often scared of. The reason behind the same is the phobia that they carry from their school years. To be honest, the level of Math problems that get asked in CAT is pretty low. It is unlikely that you will get a question which will require anything more than class 10th level mathematics. However, it is important to know the important formulas and fundas which are required to be successful in the Q
