DO I NEED VEDIC MATHS TO CLEAR THE EXAMS ?

If you are going to attempt the entrance exam in less than 10 months from now, this is not the right time to start anything new like Vedic maths. If you have more than a year for preparation, yes you can afford to go for Vedic Maths. 

If you are appearing for CAT this year and you start Vedic maths now, it may confuse you and you will end up doing calculations twice in the exams to reconfirm if you got it right. It is not necessary to have knowledge of Vedic Maths to clear the CAT. It may help to score a bit more but only when you are master in it. This is our suggestion based on personal opinion and other people may have different opinion. Vedic Maths as a subject in itself is great but its knowledge is not necessary to clear CAT.

Hardik Doshi: I dont think you need Vedic Maths for CAT and XAT. These 2 tests are no longer calculation-intensive. They more or less test your strength in Numbers, Geometry using concepts and reasoning, rather than calculations. Efforts should be very much focussed on fundas right now. Same for DI, no questions require heavy calculations.
And yes, pls DO NOT start learning Vedic Math techniques now, if you wish to appear for CAT/XAT in the forthcoming year. Vedic Maths is a brilliant concept to learn, but nows too late for it.
At best, you can just learn a few VM tricks to find a square or square-roots of numbers. They may help little in NMAT / SNAP etc where a few DI and quant questions require fast calculation and speed is a criteria to clear cut-offs.

Shipra Chaudhary : No doubt Vedic Maths is one of the quickest possible way to solve calculation but most of the times we forget to apply Vedic mats to solve calculation and start using our normal method of solving as we have practiced our simple method so many times that they come effortless to us. Vedic Maths is of use only when you are master of it. One don't needs to practise a lot of Vedic maths by taking question of addition and multiplications to be solved by Vedic Maths but bring it into habit of solving all calculations which comes in other question using Vedic Maths.Since CAT is 10 months away one can start bringing in into practice and make habit to solve all calculations using Vedic Methods.

Anurodh Sharma : No, u dont need it because vedic maths needs a lot of practise like any other (normal)maths method, so stick to one method if u plan to take up vedic maths ... pratice it a lot and master the art.
