Mock Tests form an integral part of preparations for any exam, certainly competitive exams such as MBA entrances. Preparation cannot be considered complete unless you solve a few mock tests, which are nothing but replicas of the kind of question papers you can expect in the main exam.
Just as a new born baby needs a mother to nurture and nourish him, especially in his formative years, the dreams that you see and the goals that you set for yourself, are your own baby that require your undiverted attention.
There is the only way to deal with the fear of the CAT exam- conquer it. Do not let it hinder your preparation but use it to push your limits.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that every single student who appears for entrance examinations to get into MBA, dreams of getting through to the biggest institutes of management in the country, that is the Indian Institutes of Management, spread across the country.
MBA is one of the most sought after courses among the student community and remains in demand despite the fluctuations in the job market.
