Which coaching Institute is best for CAT TIME or CL or IMS?
Which full time coaching Institute is best for CAT TIME or CL or IMS?
I cannot answer this with 100% accuracy because the only interaction with IMS I have had is with their online sectional tests and SIMCATs. I have only accessed the CL Smart CAT cracker and CL mocks.
I attend TIME weekend classes and have access to their material and AIMCATs.
TIME classes are alright. Some topics are explained really well but a few of them are superficially taught, which is not something I would recommend for an exam like CAT. But AIMCATs are fantastic.
I have heard some very good things about IMS though.
How about you take classes online?
Takshzila offers very cheap courses on Takshzila Learnyst.
Their former partner, Ankur Suryavanshi, is also selling Takshzila courses on The Learning Space by Takshzila Shikshak.
Except Geometry (which is of poor quality), the courses are 100 times better than anything you will learn in classroom coaching.
I suggest you pair Takshzila with mock test series by various coaching institutes.
You can also access Takshzila's drop box for detailed notes on various topics.
Can you please tell me how to access Takszila's dropbox content?

Hi guys, A lot of you have requested the drop-box link. The link is no longer available since it has been taken down by the admin, but you can find all of the content for QA and VA-RC here.
Frankly, there is no definite answer to this question.
TIME - If in the official CAT paper, you get 50 easy questions, TIME will have 30 in their mocks. Basically, prepares you for the worst. You end up finding CAT easy. Disadvantage - Low confidence due to continuous poor scores
IMS - If in the official CAT paper you have 50 easy questions, IMS will have 40 in their mocks. It is nearer to CAT level. Gives you an exam like feel. Because trust me, CAT is not so tough!
I preferred IMS as I did not want to prepare for a level of specialization which is not needed!!
In the end, frankly, study from anywhere, if you are consistent, you will crack it :)
Coaching institutes are just only the initiators, they'll just introduce the subjects & leaves off. But the students are finishers, they have to workhard with the learned concepts. Ultimately self learning pays off.
For full-time preparatory courses, both online or classroom, TIME is usually the first choice for most of the aspirants. I personally have tried the IMS mock series- SIMCATs. My brother had enrolled in the Career Launcher's GD-PI prep course after scoring 99.67 in CAT last year (he too was enrolled in IMS- SIMCATs). But, you can get all the three parts, i.e. prep materials, mock exams & the GD-PI prep course from any of the three- TIME, CL or IMS. I suggest one can try to take a sample mock offered by these institutes and then decide whichever suits you. Using the mocks as a deciding factor can be helpful as these mocks play a crucial role in your CAT preparations.
IMS is the best institute in my opinion. These 3 institutes are very similar in the way they operate, the quality of their mock CATs, etc. However, the thing that separates IMS is the quality of its study material. The books are so well written that you can easily do a chapter on your own referring to them. They make it extremely easy to revise concepts which is very essential in CAT. Their training for Interviews is also a class apart with regards to the other 2.
This is totally personal opinion:
Performance of student in CAT depends upon their self prep rather than the institute. Choice of institute also differs centre to centre; TIME 'X' city might not be as good as TIME 'Y' city but IMS 'X' city may be better than IMS 'Y' city. So this question has lots of variable in it to offer any definitive answer.
- I had joined TIME Test Series to prepare for CAT
I had enrolled in CL. Their material is good and the test series are very similar to the actual exams. One very good feature of the website is that you have separate mock tests for all kinds of MBA entrance exams like CAT, XAT, IIFT, SNAP, etc. This gives you adequate practice on different patterns of the different exams. Apart from the full length test, they also have separate tests for the three sections i.e., Verbal, LR/DI and QA. There are topic wise tests too. You can pick up your weak points and take as many tests as you need to ace those topics.
Since, I had enrolled only at CL, I can't speak for TIME and IMS. My suggestion would be, whichever coaching institute you pick, consistency is the key. Good luck with your preparation. :)

this link has only 10 pdfs...what about other content?
I think the 10 PDFs cover the content comprehensively. If you don't find it adequate, you can also refer to Takshzila's YouTube channel for conceptual clarity.
ok thanks chirag
Mujhe lagta hai ki coching institute sirf margdarshan ke liye hai self study are important. But right the answer time is better
