To help you practise for CAT, XAT, IIFT, SNAP, NMAT and other MBA entrance exams.
You are likely to encounter a decent number of questions on Geometry in the MBA exams especially in XAT and CAT. Geometry questions can be easy pickings if your concepts of similarity, properties of various quadrilaterals and basic formulas are learnt by you. A few of these questions in these exams are of level1 in terms of difficulty and these must definitely be solved. You may skip 3D Geometry which is hardly asked in any exam and trigonometry which is only asked in XAT.
34 questions of Quant in the CAT exam are from the basic level of geometry and thus, by taking sufficient practice tests youcan score well in this section.
After proper revision, itï¿½s time to move to the next level of the topic. Practice with the advancelevel tests and ensure that you get 34 questions correct that may come in CAT exam from this level of difficulty.
Take the expertlevel tests to get a strong hold on the topic and to ensure that, 12 questions that may be from the expert level of difficulty from Geometry in CAT exam and 23 questions in XAT exam do not escape your eyes.
