    yes you can prepare for this year's exams itself
    daily 4 hours of preparation is enough

    for math section , master the 12th stranded CBSE mathematics books
    for verbal section refer the books such as Wren & Martin and IMS CAT material, thats enough
    for data interpretation section refer to GRE barons 12th edition
    for logical section preparation go through the previous years JMET question papers

    also prepare parallel for the Group discussion and the PI process

    wish you all the best for CAT 11.

    hii

    to be well prepared for CAT entrance examination first of all you must be strong in english vocabulary. Reading newspapers is an excellent resource to keep your vocabulary updated and up to the mark.
    then go through the previous year CAT question papers to make an overview of the question standard.
    prepare for group discussion and personal interview after the online examination.
    try to collect some good study material for CAT. for this you may join in any good coaching institution for CAT. they will provide you some study material, model question papers, suggestion papers and also some mock test which are very much helpful. so you may go for coaching institution.
    the eligibility criterion for CAT examination is
    For applying to the CAT, a candidate must hold a Bachelor's Degree, with at least 50% marks or equivalent CGPA [45% in case of candidates belonging to SC/ ST or Persons with Disability], of any of the Universities or Institutes recognized by the UGC or the Ministry of HRD, Government of India.

    This paper contains four sections- quantitative aptitude, reasoning, English and general Awareness.A student cannot take admission in any course in IIM's without qualifying CAT exam.
    A candidate requires a lot of intelligence and he also require to study at least 5 hours each day.Yes it is possible to prepare for CAT Entrance in the coming year. The coming exam of CAT would be conducted in the month of November.

    Engineers have an upper hand in management exam due to their strong mathematics base because of which they score more than in written exams of MBA.
    But problem arises in case of communication skills & interview , group discussion, so you need to prepare exclusively for these besides written exam.
    You should enroll in coaching for group discussion & interview. Also read business news paper & take tips for your management friends pursuing MBA.
    There are many good coaching are available these days like TIME, Career Launcher.

    you will have to do hard work to crack the exam. If you cant do self study, go for coaching. Best institute for the preparation of this exam is TIME institute.
    You shuld take the book of R.S.agarwal for MATHs, Wren and Martin for English, you should take other good publication books related to CAT preparation.
    try to solve previous year question paper.
    But do hard work with your communication skills. Because after Exam, there will be group discussion and interview.

    You can certainly prepare for CAT 2011 as lots of time is there even for the notification which is expected around October.You can join any good coaching centre or go for self study.Solve mock papers and sample papers very seriously as they will help you peep into the kind of paper that is actually provided.For CAT your vocabulary must be very good which can be enhanced by regularly reading english newspapers like The Hindu,Hindustan Times,The Times of India,etc.Also reading novels and magazines increases your reading habit and vocabulary considerably.Technical knowledge for CAT is provided y the course you study but this kind of knowledge is provided only by these sources.You must also prepare well for the group discussions and the personal interview after you clear the written exam.
    All the best.

    dear friend, to crack CAT entrance exam you need to have a super preparation. The competition in CAT is strong and it is increasing every year. From now you have one year in your hand for next CAT preparation. This is enough time for a good preparation but you need to work very hard. Self preparation would not be sufficient for you at this stage .So it will be very beneficial if you join a CAT coaching center such as TIME,IMS,CAREER LAUNCHER etc.
    best wishes.

    Yeah you can prepare for CAT in coming year.. You have solid 3 months to prepare. As u have completed your degree u can put in lots time for preparation. you can join in institutions like TIME IMS etc.. if you don't want to spend money u can prepare by yourself too.. you can get TIME materials from some of your friends and solve everything. by just solving all books u can score above 85% 4 sure. so get materials from your friends and start your preparation from now. CAT have 3 parts Qunats, Verbal and Reasoning. give equal importance to all three sections as all 3 sections marks are imp for final score. so concentrate well and prepare well for next 3months. u can rock good luck..

    Discipline is very important. Plan your preparation, maintain a fixed schedule and stick to it.
    For maths you can go for solve questions on arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, mensuration etc from the Class X books of CBSE and ICSE boards. it will give very help full to you .
    You should also solve crossword and sudoku puzzles every day as this will improve your accuracy and aptitude. After you gain some confidence with your preparation, you can join lest series so that you get an idea about your current level of preparation.
    for CAT coaching better to go in T.M.I.E s is one of the famous for CAT exam.

    all the best.
