Winners' Guide to CAT Reading Comprehension - eBook
This ebook will help you Identify & rectify your 'Reading Blocks' &
Triple your reading speed within a few days.
If I were to point out one single skill that strongly correlates with your final CAT Score, it
would be ‘Reading’.
Ability to read fast not only helps for the RC section of the CAT, but is also invaluable in the
whole of the Verbal section.
Moreover, a fast reader can shave off seconds on each Quant problem by reading and
digesting the information quickly.
But there is more….. being able to read faster will also help you throughout your career.
Most of the top managers have reading speeds that are double the national average.
Good Reading skills will not only help you immensely on ALL sections of the CAT, but
throughout your professional career.
So how do you improve your Reading skills?
Well, if you look at hundreds of ‘Reading Programmes’ available in the market, each one
pushing their own ‘strategies & techniques’, it is easy to get confused.
Is there a book or a programme that helps you improve your Reading Speed, but with
reference to the Cat exam?
Unfortunately, there is none!!
Well, there was none, till the ‘Winners’ Guide to CAT Reading’ came along.
This is book that contains winning strategies for improving your reading speed, and more
importantly, enables you to apply these to the CAT RC section.
Some of the unique features of this book are:
1. Addresses the problem rather than the symptoms. It does not give you dry tips to
improve your performance in RC. It gives you strategies to improve your Reading Speed
and then applies these strategies to the RC section.
2. Contains proven methods that have helped scores of students double/triple their
reading speed WITH Better Comprehension.
3. A thorough analysis of various RC question types and strategies you can apply to
each of these.
4. Detailed discussion of which strategies you can apply to come out a Winner on the
5. Over 100+ Unique RC questions from varied passages for you to practice your
Reading is natural to all of us & poor reading is more because of bad reading habits rather
than any innate disability.
Using the right techniques and methods, it is possible to get rid of poor reading habits and
considerably increase your Reading Speed.
This comprehensive 150+ page book will do just that. It will help you:
- Identify the ‘blocks’ to reading faster.
- Clear these blocks and double/triple your reading speed.
- To apply the same strategies that CAT RC Winners use to get that 99 percentile.
And above all, it will help you become a better and faster reader in a much shorter time than
any other course/book/programme.
Over the years that I have taught the CAT Verbal, and from my own CAT experience , I have
compiled this book to specifically help out students who want to improve their reading skills
in general & score big on the CAT Reading Comprehension section in particular.

Most of the commonly available CAT prep books address the symptoms rather than the

causes of slow reading and getting rid of 'bad' reading habits.
