Why Prepare with 2IIM?
Because of great teachers, and great teaching!
Start from Basics
We at 2IIM start from zero. We demystify this exam and break every idea into small digestible chunks. I can assure you that you will end the course with the feeling that this is a simple, eminently crack-able exam.
Learn at your Pace
The course is modularized and gives the student the option of learning one idea at a time. A student can learn an idea, practice a set of questions, take a quiz and only then move to the next idea. Each lesson/video can be viewed any number of times.
Know where you stand
Each class ends with a “Prep Edge” test that is pegged at CAT level and should help you assess and benchmark. Test analytics will help you identify strengths and weaknesses and tweak prep plan.

What are the technical specifications my machine needs to have for the CAT Online course to work?
You will need to have an internet connection, preferably at a speed of around 1 MBPS or better. (the course runs even at speeds lower than that). The videos load only on the Chrome browser. So, the course can only be learnt using Chrome. The simplest test to see if the specifications are met is to try loading some video from youtube on a Chrome browser. If your computer + internet connection lets you watch a video from youtube, you should be able to view everything from the online course from 2IIM.
When our mobile app goes live in May, you will be able to save classes for offline viewing when your internet is stable, and learn from cached content when connectivity gets dicey.
You claim to be the best online CAT Preparation Course. How do you know this?
This one is easy. In our minds, we are probably the only one offering an Online CAT Preparation Course. We offer slide-decks, videos, check-point quizzes and CAT-Level Tests. Most products available are either test series, e-books or recorded classroom lectures. In our mind, none of these qualify as an online course. Online Preparation for CAT has to involve more than reading a bunch of PDFs on a laptop.
Any recorded video of length more than 15 minutes is more or less worthless. Research tells us that people struggle to watch even entertainment videos if they are more than 12 minutes long. (Imagine that, if one struggles to watch Amitabh Bachan for 12 minutes, what are odds of watching a tutor in a 60 minute long video?).
We have spent an inordinate amount of time and energy in designing this course. At every stage, we have worn the hat of a student and brought in the technology that works for each specific idea. The starting point has been the student requirement, and not the technology. This is why we went down the route of using screen capture videos and not live videos. Screen capture videos de-emphasize the teacher and bring the content to the forefront. (This hurts us while trying to market the product). But screen capture gives us two massive advantages - 1) Video size is small. Our videos on a per-minute basis are about one-fourth of the size of the videos on youtube. So, if you have an internet connection that lets you watch stuff of youtube you can most definitely take this course and 2) We can write equations and use a digital pen to highlight key ideas without worrying about camera focus..
You have disclosed the tech provider, technology and given all the information up front here. Are you not worried that someone will mimic the online CAT Course?
We are very generous that way.
Jokes apart, the largest value in the online CAT course sits in the pedagogy. The value lies in
1) the way we have created the course,
2) the people who have created the course and
3) the quality of the content.
We have built the entire content with a team of 3 teachers. They have distilled years of teaching experience to come up with a well-thought out pedagogy that uses technology well. We have not used technology for the sake of using some fancy bits. We have found the tech pieces that the course demanded, not the other way around. That value which our teachers bring to the table cannot be replicated easily.
Till what date is the online CAT course valid?
The 2IIM CAT Online coaching for CAT 2017 is valid till Jan 2018 (so you should be covered till XAT 2018). Any student wishing to extend the duration of the course can contact us at 99626 48484. Any upgrades or additions we do the course will be available to everyone.
What is the size of the videos? Can we watch it with even a 1MBPs connection?
As we have mentioned elsewhere in this section, our videos on a per-minute basis are about one-fourth of the size of the videos on youtube. So, if you have an internet connection that lets you watch stuff of youtube you can most definitely take this course. Screen capture technology gives us the option of keeping video length short. This is why we have built the entire content on this model.
What technology have you used for the videos?
As far as the online CAT Course is concerned, we have used screen-capture technology for most parts. For recording the videos, we work with a Software called as Blueberry; an alternative Software called Camtasia is also pretty good. Our online tech platform provider is Learnyst. They might use some hi-funda technology to create the platform, but they created a simple enough interface for us to use.
