Coordinate geometry for CAT

Geometry is one of the important topics of CAT Quantitative Aptitude section. Some of the topics that need to be practised parallelly along with coordinate geometry are circles, parallel lines and triangles out of which congruency and similarity of triangles are quite stressed upon.

Like any other section, this section needs a lot of practice. Try to solve as many online CAT mock test/CAT model tests as possible to get familiar with the tips & tricks for geometry. Learn all the basic geometrical formulas and coordinate geometry formulas as knowing all the formulas will help you solve the problems easily.

CAT Geometry Preparation Tips:

 Spend at least 3 to 4 hours every day practicing geometry for CAT exam and quantitative analysis as a whole. The more you spend time with the problems, the more familiar they will get.

 Write the geometry formulas down on a piece of paper and stick it onto the wall where you can see it regularly. It’ll help you memorize them.

 If you are stuck with a geometry question, don’t waste your time trying to solve it right away. Instead, get on with the others and come back to the question when you are done with the rest.

 Serial CAT topper Byju Raveendran who heads BYJU’S Classes says that Geometry is the easiest of all the sections if one practice with a clear mind. It is a combination of numbers and diagrams. Use the tricks and tips by him in the video given below.
