COMMENTS OF MBA ASPIRANTS ON COACHING

By Kumar Rahul :

1. Reasons why one should join a coaching institute for preparation.
- Coaching institutes provide systematic study. As we go with the flow of classes in the coaching, we get to cover most of the preparation. Also, we get the most up to date information and coaching.

2. Reasons why one should NOT join a coaching institute for preparation.
- It is a wastage of time for those who are somewhat confident in their preparation. Most of the coaching institutes teach very very basics in the class rooms and expect the students to build up at their homes. E.g. engineers find maths classes very basic and time wastage.

3. Things to remember before joining a coaching institute :
- That you have to do home work also. Studies in coaching alone is not going to get you anywhere.

4. How to select coaching institute for preparation :
- All mojor institutes are same, they have a level of quality education and with some pros and cons, all are equal. Think about oterh factors like logistics and peerage as they will help you in attending the coaching on continuous basis.

In my case, I did bad in CAT just because of one coaching institute. Through out the year, in all the sym-cats, they took tests where quant was toughest and verbal the easiest. While they preached that we should not go to the exam hall with a mindset, the papers made us do so. They say that the test series are varied and cover all that could appear in actual cat. But you can never beat CAT in throwing surprises. I missed cat only because of my mindset, which was shaped by the so called expert guidance of the coaching institutes.

It all depends on the attitude of the candidate. Joining a institution will help you getting tips from experienced proffesionals about how to prepare,how to approach thinks more in a logical way and so on.surely study materials available from the institutions will give u atleast an about the core part of the exams and of course the methadolagies and terminologies that has has to be familiar for a student preparing for these sort of exams.mainly it provides a time table for your preparation for those who are not able to focus their time for the preparation .

1. Reasons why one should join a coaching institute for preparation.
•    If you don’t know much about the test you wish to take
•    If you are not in touch with the concepts
•    If you need some schedule to be enforced on you
•    If you need regular external feedback about your prep level, mistakes you make,etc.
•    If ou don’t have much time and resources to follow up and keep track of changing test pattern and syllabus.

2. Reasons why one should NOT join a coaching institute for preparation.
•    You can better study yourself as there is no limitation of resources these days, thanks to internet.
•    You don’t have much time to take additional coaching. And the time available can be better utilised in doing self study and analysis as it is more important and mandatory in either case.
•    Too much spoon feeding as in coaching institutes can hamper your creativity and thinking capacity.

Reasons why one should join a coaching institute for preparation :
One should join a coaching institute for directions.. just the efforts are not enough. moreover u get to meet a lot of people and learn hw to mingle with ppl.. u can get to know different views on a single topic.. u have teachers to guide & motivate u all along.. ppl not in a coaching institute lacks motivation..

Reasons why one should NOT join a coaching institute for preparation :
Ashishnath singh :  People  working find difficult to get adjusted with institutes times.. moreover ppl like me in direct marketing with lots of touring to do nott get time to join a institute.. i think ppl who can join insti, shld go for it.. not only coz of studies but because there other intangible benefits too..

Things to remember before joining a coaching institute:
Go for its past reputation & the amount of exposure it has to offer.

Reasons why one should join a coaching institute for preparation ---------CAT is the most competitive examination in the world. so one needs to know all the tricks of the trade to crack it. this time the competition had gone even higher.2 lakh people are writing it. and also the time has been extended to two and a half hours. So we need to maximise our scores in this short span of time. also these coaching institutes teach us a lot of shortcuts  especially in areas of quant which is of gr8 value. these shortcuts would save a lot of time.1 mark here and there will make a world of differnce. also the professors also prepare us mentally for the D-DAY.ALTHOUGH I DO AGREE THAT FINALLY WHAT WE LEARN AND HOW WE APPLY WHAT IS LEARNT IN THE RITE WAY IS THE BOTTOMM LINE, yet coachin institutes shape our knowledge in the right way.

Reasons why one should NOT join a coaching institute for preparation : ------just bcoz your friendz join,and just bcoz most of people who prepare 4 CAT join a coaching institute one should not jump into a conclusion THAT A COACHIN INSTITUTE IS A MUST. Lots a resources are available online. also if one does have the self belief that he or she can crack the CAT then ther is nothin better.

Things to remember before joining a coaching institute : ------------Quality of faculty, material, performance of the institute in churning out

How to select coaching institute for preparation?
Quality of faculty, material, performance of the institute in churning out CATALYSTS, and last but not the least the mock CATS.

I think one should join a coaching institute. Because these institute provide u a base to continue study and u will also able to know that where stand daily as compare with other batchmates. But one should take care about things like how is the reputation of the institute. How was the result of the particular centre last time and how is faculty etc.

A coaching class is helpful in keeping u on track (specially if u r a working professional), else if you have all the study material and are quite disciplined, then I guess there isn't any need to join a class...a mock test series at the end may prove quite beneficial though.
I guess all the coaching classes provide study material that is decent enough, it all depends on the MBA aspirant.

By : Supriya Sahay
well i think the coaching institutes in India have made a big business...and if the students join kind of such institutes without ever giving a thought to how to proceed their preparation then they are just helping the business and not their career..I think the only stipulation required to crack such entrances is determination and
perseverance (qualities of a true manager that iims test thruogh cat).
ANY DETERMINED PERSON CAN BE A PART OF AN IIM IRRELEVANT OF HIS PARTICIPATION IN ANY COACHING INSTITUE.
ALWAYS REMEMBER IF AN INSTITUTE HAS GOT PEOPLE WHO CRACKED CAT ,THEN ON THE SAME SIDE THEY HAVE ALSO GOT THOSE WHO COULD NOT.
Thats all what i think
all the best

i think why one shud join a coaching is coz it gives u a sense of de competition you are gonna face wen u give the real test....also coachin helps us b regular wid studies coz most of us don really have the will power to sit n study by ourselves....
although one NEED NOT join a coachin if one has a good wil power to push urself to study everyday....coz de syllabus isnt sumtin dat v cant do on our own...but coachin does giv us lil more short cuts etc....so dat helps/....
one shud find out how is de faculty of de inst....dats de most imp while decidin which coachin to join....

By NIRAV SHAH: According to me the coaching center gives us sort of  a regulation in preparation and also certain material is available only at the class which they dont offer in correspodance course.
Also it generates compitative spirit as we are in the class
Now before joining institue following point must be taken into consideration.
1. check the previous achivement of the institute
2. ask the students going there about the pedagogy
3. see there material
4. ask them wht they offer which other institues dont offer
