Best Introductory Textbooks for CAT 2021

These books are guides and solved papers to help you understand the syllabus for CAT. If you are new to CAT, you should know what kind of questions come in the exam and what are the patterns for the tests.

Best Books for CAT Preparation

Gautam Puri’s Topic-Wise & Year-Wise Solved Papers is possibly the best book to start. It is available in both paperback and Kindle versions. You can get it from Amazon here.

I wouldn’t suggest any other book for solved papers as most of the alternatives lack the correctness. Remember the golden rule to read only one book for one purpose. Remember to buy a newer version if that is available.

There is no need to buy any extra guides for anything. Just understand the syllabus and patterns from this article from my blog and you are good to go.
