Almost all of us in Pakistan use this book for our ……. This book has been in the market since the very advent of the GAT test in Pakistan. Written by Muhammad Idrees, this book has been a valuable source of authentic ….. Each section within the book is based on certain areas. For instance, the book starts off with a complete GAT diagnostic test of questions that covers all areas of the real GAT exam.
Then a complete section is dedicated towards each of the ……. Within each chapter, concepts are broken up into categories. Each chapter focuses not only on explaining the questions type but it also entails shortcut techniques and strategies to solve the questions. Before moving on to a new chapter, this book provides you with a lot of practice questions where you can test your new found skills.
Moreover the questions are broken down into two difficult levels; sweet candies easy questions and brain busters difficult questions.
This allows you to determine the level of difficulty that you are trying to solve and helps you gauge your performance. Finally, at the end of the book you are given 1 full length GAT practice test that you can use to test the range of concepts you have learned throughout the GAT book by Muhammad Idrees.
Teaching Approach: With this book you will actually learn. By the time you are done with this book, you will have a solid grasp of all concepts tested on the GAT exam. Because the book provides many difficult GAT questions, therefore you will not fall into a false sense of confidence thinking that you know everything on the exam. Moreover each chapter has a bunch of solved exercises that help in consolidating the concepts learned during the chapter.
This is not true entirely. While the book does have loads of practice questions, but it lacks having a lot of difficult questions. For instance, the Math section has only 40 difficult questions in total, whereas the analytical section only has 48 hard ones and the verbal part has around This book lacks in that aspect.
The Ugly: The worst part is that the book has many typos. This book is filled with several errors, typos and incorrect answers. I found at least 1 error per chapter and sometimes more than 3 per chapter. I know that all books have some errors but this book has so many errors that it is totally unacceptable.
Vocabulary: Personally speaking, one of the worst ways to study vocabulary is by learning and memorizing from a list of words or flash cards. This word list has around words grouped alphabetically. Each word has a definition but it does not have a sentence or any contextual usage of the word, which is a bad thing. It becomes really difficult to just keep memorizing words without ever knowing where and how they are used. Nevertheless the high frequency word list has a lot of good words that you will definitely see on the test day.
Moreover the GAT book also has words that are grouped into segments of related words. These are also some of the most commonly seen words on the GAT test. This process is great for letting similar words sink in. Muhammad Idrees also provides the root method of learning words for the GAT exam.
However it lacks in hard practice questions — one area that you will have to cover from some other source. This book teaches good strategies that will work on the test day and also helps students learn over new words for the GAT exam.
Complemented with some more practice questions, this book is definitely worth a read and will help you do well on the test day.
