Best Books for CAT 2020 Preparation


How is the Josh for CAT 2020? Sorry, wrong question. I know one thing for sure that a major chunk of the crowd reading this article wants to desperately get through CAT 2020 – The Gateway to IIMs and many other premier MBA colleges in India.

The target is to achieve a heavy salary + good job profile but for that, you need to crack this ultimate exam. CAT 2019 was conducted by IIM Kozhikode who stunned students by the apocalypse seeming Verbal section.


Let’s come to the topic, how to prepare for CAT 2020? What books to purchase?

The books that I am recommending are used and suggested by most CAT aspirants. Even I am going to prepare for CAT 2019, it would be my second attempt. Don’t ask me about my percentile in the first attempt, it was terrible.

CAT books

First of all, you should understand the mindset behind purchasing books for offline study

  1. Of course for conceptual clarity and practice
  2. Whatever you read online on different websites etc., you have to write down notes for preparation purpose. A hardcover book is always handy against straining your eyes on gadgets
  3. A book will help you to swap between topics very easily


The books are mentioned below. Kindly purchase them from Amazon using the following links. (It will help the channel)

Total cost including all books(Arun Sharma) is Rs. 2200+

If you find the cost of books on the higher side then you can involve a friend who is also preparing for CAT exam. Both of you contribute and purchase – Smart Work
