CAT aspirants note that 15-20% of questions in any CAT paper fall under this head. Major topics that you need to cover are Set Theory (especially Venn diagrams) and problems on Time, Speed and Distance, both of which are always asked.
Both of these topics are covered as part of the school syllabus, but may need some brushing up on. Sometimes, questions on topics such as Linear Programming are also asked.
Another are Miscellaneous problems which do not fall under any head. They are rarely asked, and even when they do appear in a CAT paper they do not number more than one or two.
They are purely tests of mathematical aptitude, and you cannot learn how to solve them. The advice, for dealing with these problems, is to try back-substitution of answer choices, or to avoid these problems altogether.
CAT 2012 is scheduled from October 11, 2012 to November 6, 2012 with a test window of 21 days
