Hi Sir,
I have been following you for a while now. I really liked the way you explain questions. Would you please take up Time, Distance & Speed someday. I take too much time when solve advanced level questions.

• I haven’t done much TSD because I don’t have much value to add in terms of new approaches or ways to solve. The little I have done is here https://cat100percentile.com/tag/tsd/ . I may do more someday, but almost certainly not in time for CAT 18, I’m afraid ðŸ™‚

Thanks for responding sir. What can I do to pace up my speed? I noticed that I use conventional(long method taught in textbook) method to solve the quant questions because of which my attempts are very less.

• Quite simple….when trying the simpler sums, keep the pen and paper aside and try to visualise the problem. Arithmetic is the best place to start this kind of a habit, but once you get the hang of thinking without writing, you may find other areas also susceptible!

Try these to give you a flavour of the type of approach I am talking about: https://cat100percentile.com/tag/paperless/

Hello Sir,

Do you have any tips/strategies to ace the DI/LR section in CAT ?

Background story – My classroom mentor has advised to just focus on solving 3-4 sets as I am especially weak in this section, this has helped me score above average marks in mocks (80-90%ile). But is there any way I could one up my di/lr game ? Also do you know about any source where I could find CAT level sets as I have already run out of lr/di sectionals.

Thanks,
Saket

• Work on picking the right set: https://cat100percentile.com/2014/10/16/data-interpretation-strategy/

Also, solve old CAT papers (2002-2008 and 2017 are the ones officially available) – the most CAT-like practice would be the CAT itself! Solve one every week and try to analyse it in detail, understanding the underlying logic for each set.

There’s really no magic, just hard (and smart) work.
