Really surprising!! While various CAT preparation institutes with significant national presence and hence scale are thinking to increase CAT prep fee, some online preparation programmes are going on an altogether different track. For instance, TCYonline’s (www.TCYonline.com) FREE CAT course is a matter of surprise for all. Not only are the contents (tests, tutorials, audio et al) comparable in quantity but also ranked very highly by the students. According to company officials – As the CAT experts all over India admit that they really don’t see reason why students would pay for content. It’s not about content AT ALL but what happens around that content. What it means is that websites like www.TCYonline.com have captured millions of Analytics (data points) around lakhs of questions by running this course free for the last two years. Around 50,000 prepared for CAT 2008 with TCYonline NOT just because of content but specifically because of Analytics (http://www.tcyonline.com/cat2009/tcy_graphs.html).
With the pace CAT aspirants are enrolling every day for the online courses; websites like www.TCYonline.com expects to enroll more than 1.5 lakh students. While preparation and test results are absolutely free, students can pay as less as INR 365 for unlimited annual usage of the some special technical features.

While various CAT preparation institutes withsignificant national presence and hence scale are thinking to increaseCAT prep fee, some online preparation programmes are going on analtogether different track. For instance,
TCYonline’s
(www.TCYonline.com) FREE CAT course is a matter of surprise for all.Not only are the contents (tests, tutorials, audio et al) comparable inquantity but also ranked very highly by the students. According tocompany officials – As the CAT experts all over India admit that theyreally don’t see reason why students would pay for content. It’s notabout content AT ALL but what happens around that content. What itmeans is that websites likewww.TCYonline.comhave captured millionsof Analytics (data points) around lakhs of questions by running thiscourse free for the last two years. Around 50,000 prepared for CAT2008 with TCYonline NOT just because of content but specificallybecause of Analytics(http://www.tcyonline.com/cat2009/tcy_graphs.html).With the pace CAT aspirants are enrolling every day for the onlinecourses; websites likewww.TCYonline.comexpects to enroll more than1.5 lakh students. While preparation and test results are absolutelyfree, students can pay as less as INR 365 for unlimited annual usage of the some special technical features. Moreover, such an approach
 
towards online training requires first the trainers to be trained on theways of helping a CAT aspirant to use analytics to their bestadvantage. For instance, the classroom trainers of TCY are certified onthese Analytics if students want to take advantage of instructor ledtraining. That’s highly scientific as only certified trainers can train them& not merely subject experts.Such free online CAT preparation options are a boon for workingprofessionals like S. Karthikeyan of Chennai, according to whom it isthe “best” resource for all the MBA aspirants like him.“The beauty of this course is that one can do it at one’s own pace “, hesaid, adding, “Thanks to good quality, challenging tests and lectures onthe website, I prefer an online course to a regular course.”Additionally, the course consists of some video recorded lectures andonline tests in verbal and quant. TCYonline offers meticulouslydesigned 60-70 video recorded lectures. Equal stress is laid on Quantand Verbal Aptitude, Data Analysis, and Logical Reasoning.
Salient features an Online course:
• Vocabulary and speed reading buildup• Digital audio lectures and online tests• Live online technical support• Subject-wise backing by CAT experts• Downloadable topic-wise notes.• Test-wise analysis and nationwide ranking• Mock CATs and previous year’s original papersShivam Srivastava, working with Infosys at Bangalore, too is all praisefor the free CAT course. “The online course available on TCYonline isexhaustive and at the same time intensive and focuses on the topics
 
well. The best thing about it is that the lectures provided can beattended at any point of time which gives flexibility to the user. Thecontent is also great and covers everything. Also, regular tests andassignments help you benchmark yourself with others.” The biggest challenge before test-takers is how to prepare and testthemselves before the actual exam. If the ultimate test is online, it ishigh time, with 5-6 months at hand, to switch to computer-basedpreparation and practice. If not, they will stay fit only for paper-basedIIFTs and SNAPs. Moreover, with CAT going online, be prepared for newsof SNAP, JMET, XAT (once again), MAT, NMAT, FMS and IIFT also goingonline soon

CAT has actually got easier. One major advantage that CAT2009 offers is that one can gain quick access to the tests andpreparation material at any time of the day if it is available online. Thiswill offer customization and flexibility to the test-takers preparing forCAT 2009.Since there is always a surprise element in a CAT exam, keeping inview a steady shift from formula-based to reasoning-based questionsduring the last couple of years, these types of online tests can betterprepare them to face any eventuality. Tools like
Analytics
aredesigned to provide an aspirant with not only self growth analysis, butalso benchmarking with others at the granular level. It acts as your
everyday reality check 
! by providing you national rankings. You cancompare your performance vs. that of toppers and your pastperformance. Another option for the aspirants is to generate their owntests. One such testing tool with is Test Generator(www.TCYonline.com/Createst). The
