Byju’s Cat Classes
Posted March 22, 2009on:
This is my second year as a Cat Aspirant and i wonder would this be my last… though i want it to be….. :)
I heard about Byju sometime in mid 2008 but i had already enrolled with IMS and decided … not to attend his demo class….
One of my friend attended..and he told me some of Byju’s unique techniques ..and phew.. it was impressive..!!!…
Now..almost an year later…. i happened to attend another of his demo classes…. in mid february….. ( The reason being .. i had flunked in Cat 08 :( :( … managed a meagre 87 :( :( )
I already had an idea about the guy’s reputation and i knew.. he would certainly engulf anyone with his witty style of problem solving.. but i was dissappointed in a sense.. :( :( .. .he took the same old questions which my friend told me almost an year back….. but.. there could be reasons which i may not be aware of…… :) :)
The guy was impressive. in whatever he told..but i went in with a predetermined not to get impressed.. and i succeeded…… :)…
During the demo..I often felt that.. he failed to connect CAT with people who were attending his demo for the first time.. people who had no idea what Cat was..and were attending demo … with the primary reason..it being free of cost..
A decision had to be taken…. !!… Working in weekdays and sitting at home in weekends is probably not the best way to tackle Cat..and i had a full fledge experience of class room coaching at IMS…. Time .. i am sure.. would not be too different..they only cover the basics.. give in a lot of questions… and for that … apprx 20 k is not worth it.. :( :( … but yes… going for class room coaching helps a lot though.. it keeps us motivated :) :) .. and we get to meet lot of people with similar interests :) :) ….
Eventually…I decided to join Byju.. and had my first session yesterday at Hotel Checkers, Chennai… He chooses pretty impressive places as classrooms.. i went for IMS classes in Vijaya College, Bangalore :)………
And it was a pretty intensive session of 4 hrs but… there was something lagging .. :( :( .. of which i am not quite sure of…
May be things will improve in the days to come and that is to be seen…….
As of now.. I am counting on Byju to help me ‘Bell the Cat’ ..
