How effective are Arun Sharma books for CAT preparation? Are they enough to gain concepts or one has to solve CAT institutes packages?

I think Arun Sharma’s LOD 2 and 3 are worth doing. 
LOD 1 is too easy in most cases. Also, the question bank is slightly outdated. 
For example, Averages and Mixtures have only LOD 1 questions which are too easy. 
The same goes for his Logical Reasoning book. 
I recommend TIME books for preparation. Tough questions, but good set of questions.

Yes, Arun Sharma books are great for concepts building and then practising tougher questions . In the quant book, the LOD-1 questions will help you clarify your basic understanding of a concept and then you may switch to LOD-2 & 3 problem sets of the chapters. Once you get used to the problems there, the CAT questions won’t seem so tough while giving mocks.
Another book of Arun Sharma that I have used is for the Data Interpretation. It will be a good practice since there are many questions plus CAT’s past year papers.
The Logical Reasoning & Reading Comprehension books are just fine. You may go through their pdf versions.

I found Arun Sharma’s quant book really helpful in improving my scores in the mocks
