Data Interpretation bears the closest resemblance to the kind of problems that you as a manager would be tackling in your professional career. Data Interpretation has no particular syllabus. It tests your speed, decision making capability and analysing data.
It consists of a good number of graphs, charts and tables from which you will have to analyse data. The key to cracking this area is to quickly identify the key pieces of data that you will require to work on the questions asked.
It is not unknown for question-setters of the CAT to try and bewilder students with a large amount of data, most of it unnecessary. As a rule, the more the data presented, the easier the questions that follow, so don’t lose heart if you see a table with 10 columns occupying one whole page. On the other hand, several seemingly innocuous questions may trip you up.
Ensure that your preparation is up to the mark to be successful in CAT 2013 !!
