This mental Math course is designed to prepare students for the ‘Quantitative aptitude’ of the Question paper. The course is a complete guide in itself and the course provides everything you need in order to study for different Math Competitions. The course covers Basic facts, Notes, Formulas, short cuts, logical techniques, downloadable pdfs, Tasks and Practice tests. In every section, Resources are provided in the form of downloadable pdfs of Practice problems and Assignments with the answers.

Tricks and shortcuts used in the course are very easy, can be applied mentally and a person with less knowledge of Math can also easily understand.

The course covers almost all common topics of competitive exams (around 2000 solved questions) and there is constant upgrading in the course.

Topics covered are

- Algebra Short Tricks

1.30 hr. section of Algebra short tricks requires very little knowledge of the actual methods of solving. Very fast techniques to solve Sequence and Series, Quadratic equations, reducible to quadratic equations, problems involving α & β, real-life word problems based on linear and quadratic equations, Linear Equations & Polynomials.


Nearly 1hr. section of Logarithm short tricks explaining Logarithms and its Laws in detail. Three lectures on the application of short techniques to crack the problems in the first attempt. The last two lectures of this section are based on past paper Problems from the CAT exam.

without actually calculating.

Note: I am still upgrading the course by adding more topics to the course because many students demanded topics like Trigonometry, Logarithms shortcuts, Sequence, and series, etc. I am open to your suggestions to improve the course, contact me through the message box. Your reviews and ratings to the course will be precious gift to the course.

Course is based on solving problems with short tricks, tips and logical methods only so that students can solve competitive exam problems within a few seconds. Traditional methods used in schools are not included in the course.

As from last 20 years, I have prepared students of different caliber for entrance to different competitive Exams. Through this course I am presenting my knowledge of short tricks of various Math topics that can help you crack quants section of various competitions.

So this is the course which will help you learn tricks, tips and shortcuts to crack Quant section of any competition exams.


Match the syllabus of your requirement with topics given in the course before taking the course and  English is not my mother tongue so watch example videos provided with the intro to understand my style of teaching. If you like my style of teaching then only buy the course.

Who this course is for:
  • Preparing for Math Olympiad, GMAT, GRE, CAT , MAT, SAT , Banking exams and any other Math competitive exam.
  • Wants to learn short tricks to crack challenging problems with in targeting time.
  • Course is great for students who want to solve Quant’s section with less knowledge of Math.
  • Wants to learn tips, tricks and Logic to make Math easy, speedy and accurate.
  • Students want to develop new way to think.
  • Students want to improve overall IQ and Intelligent level.
  • Enjoys doing challenging problems of competitive exams.
