Good for the people who has prior knowledge In most of the competitive exams the syllabus will be too huge and Quantitative aptitude will be a part of it, the book covers almost all concepts related to quantitative aptitude in detail, but the book is quite bulky, it would be still good it it stands in between Shakuntala devi puzzles and this quantitative aptitude book, there are too many questions of similar kind, which is a almost a repitition, it would be better, if we have 10-12 problems in each chapter which would cover all the concepts of the chapter, which will help the students to revice the book again and again,here since the book is huge, it will be very difficult to complete it and revision is again a problem, but the book is very good content wise --Umesh Shankara Oct 13, 2011
Really a nice one ..... i will recommend this to all those who are appearing for any competitive exam :) Received the book in just 1 day of ordering.. Excellent packaging and book is also really good, There is a difference between "just preparing" for an exam, and "preparing to achieve the topmost score" in an exam. In case you want to just prepare, this book is okay. It will give you sufficient questions. But if you really want to crack all written tests well and make it to the top, then ARUN SHARMA is the author you should refer to. He gives amazingly explained concepts and very good questions, which will surely help you in clearing any written test you sit for. Refer to his CAT books on Flipkart itself. It will take you places, I guarantee that. --Rekha Ram Chaudhary Feb 17, 2012
Its a very good book for those who are preparing for competetive exams and the quality of the book is also good. --Sourabh Mar 15, 2014
