How to solve a hard CAT level Time and Work problem in a few confident steps 3

thumb_How to solve a hard CAT level time work problem in a few confident steps3

The conventional approach to math problem solving relies heavily on manipulation of terms using low level mathematical constructs without using the problem solving abilities of the student. Following only this approach to solving problems, students may tend to become used to mechanical and procedural thinking suppressing their inherent creative and innovative out-of-the-box thinking abilities. On the other hand, conceptual reasoning without firm mathematical base leads to confusion. In solving hard problems you need to strike a balance. In this third session on hard problem solving we have shown again how to do it...

SSC CGL Tier II level Solution Set 2, Algebra 2

thumb_SSC CGL Tier 2 solution set 2 algebra2

This is the 2nd solution set of 10 practice problem exercise for SSC CGL Tier II exam and also the 2nd on topic Algebra. For maximum gains, the test should be taken first, that is obvious. But more importantly, to absorb the concepts, techniques and deductive reasoning elaborated through these solutions, one must solve many problems in a systematic manner using this conceptual analytical approach. One can learn well only by practicing learning by doing...

To home in straight to the solution using only your mind and no pen and paper, we can say with experience that you need not have a great talent or very high level of intelligence, but...

How to select the right medicines in a hurry

thumb_How to select the right medicines in a hurry

Principle of persistence says, try once more, don't give up. But would you try the same way next time? Is there any other option? This is Principle of exploration. We always search for more options when in a bind. Some option stays invisible. It is our job to bring it to light and use it...
