How to analyze mocks and get the most out of it for CAT 2016

October 8th, 2016 by

CAT 2016 is less than two months away. One of the most important resources for CAT preparation is mocks for CAT. There are various questions that students struggle with: What is the right number of mocks? Which mocks are the best? Is it beneficial to go through mock test from previous years?

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.
