This is not specific to any exam. Each article highlights how difficult problems can be solved say in 3 steps instead of conventional 10 steps.

Under this section we will solve typical math problems that a **student might find difficult** when preparing for **competitive tests such as SSC CGL, CAT, GRE etc**. We will also cover Secondary school level or even occasionally Olympiad level problems.

The ** chief criteria** that will be common to the problems here will be three:

- The problem should not require too much math knowledge to solve,
- The problem should have an inherent difficulty for most of the students or may be too lengthy and,
- The problem must be solvable following an elegant method in a very short time.

We don't like to deal with laborious problems. Generally each of these problems can be solved in a number of ways.

As we teach ** efficient problem solving** as a subject, we will always try to

It means, each problem and its solution that we explain here **won't just be for that specific problem**. More importantly, the underlying concepts about how the solution was reached efficiently and in very quick time, form the most valuable treasure to be recognized and owned by the student **by understanding the concepts and applying the concepts in future problems.**
