In order to excel in the RC section, one must accept the fact that a lot of reading hours are required.

You can read Newspapers, Novels, Magazines etc. You must allocate at least 45 minutes from your daily schedule to reading activity.


The RC passages in actual CAT exam stretch to a good length and in order to solve them, you must retain the information you read. This retention ability will not develop overnight. Besides retention, there are tons of benefits from reading daily.


CAT 2021 will be dominated with a lot of RC passages and it’s definitely an exhausting section as you have to concentrate a lot.


In addition to offline reading, I would personally request everyone to carry out the reading activity on screens like smartphone, laptop etc. The actual CAT paper would be on Computer Screen so do develop a habit of reading on screen.

This can be a painful section for engineers as well as non-engineers. The past question papers show the ability of the Quant section to ruin the happiness of CAT aspirants with its level of difficulty.

The plan for Quant is very simple:

  • Understand the concept
  • Practice the concept questions without a timer
  • Sectional mocks to explore strong and weak areas



DILR, again a mate who ruins the complete game but definitely not an uncertain section. You can be very obvious about your scoring ability in Quant and DILR with practice sessions.


CAT exam couples up DI and LR to bring up some interesting sets that have a practical orientation. Having a good hold on Calculation tricks and solving different varieties of DILR sets can help you to master this section.

Remember, it will require patience to handle this section because some sets will seem to be like out of this universe.


You cannot reach your goals without knowing the process of achieving it. On similar notes, one must know the syllabus of all sections to figure out the best strategy for the final exam and explore strong and weak areas.

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
