Learning Quant through problem solving
byTotal Gadha- Monday, 27 April 2009, 04:37 AM 
Year after year, the only burning question which nags my mind is “how do I prepare students better for CATquant?” Many of the answers have started coming. For example, after two years of TathaGat, we haverealized that making our classroom teaching heavy with quality questions yields better results than havingmere practice questions in the classroom content and having tests and mocks full of quality material. For onething, many students don’t solve the mocks completely. For another, by the time mocks have arrived, theydon’t have enough time to deliberate and develop the fundamentals behind good problems. Second thingwhich we have seen is that exposing students to a vast variety of questions on different fundas is better thangiving repeated questions on the same funda. Although collecting problems of different flavors and colours isnot easy, it is better than having repeated problems. Still, we have not worked everything out. There arequestions which are unanswered. And all of them boil down to the same problem- how to make quant moreeasily understandable to students? Is quant really difficult to master for students who did not pursue it afterschool?My vehement answer is no. It is not difficult to master. It takes only as much pain as it takes to master anyother subject. And like any other subject, it becomes more and more understandable as you spend more andmore time on it. But learning does not happen in classrooms. It happens when you look for new problems, tryand discover new things, think deeply about some topics, experiment on your own, test your own theories,and so many other things. The key is to get totally involved. In this article, maybe my CAT aspirants will get some feel about how anaptitude for quant is slowly developed through different adventures.I was recently having a look at a problem that I had posted in theQuant-DI forumlong time back. The problem can be found inTG Special- 1thread, a collection of my problems that I keep posting in the forum. The problem, shown in the figure below is extremelyshort:
