Maths Quant

Right from day one of my preparation, I maintained a register where I diligently

maintained all the problems that I got wrong.
Regular revisions from this =register prevented me from making the same
mistakes again and helped me cut down on careless errors.

So I went ahead and bought the ' How to Read faster & better' guide by Norman
This is probably the best book around for the subject, and the most important
piece of advice I got from this book was that, if you want to improve your reading
speed, you must read, read and read more.
It does not really matter what you read, just read what you like and do more of it.
So I took this advice to heart and spent a lot of time in the library reading stuff that I
found interesting.

The Square of a natural number other than one is either a multiple of 3 or exceeds a
multiple of 3 by 1.
In other words, a perfect square leaves remainder 0 or 1 on division by 3.
The Square of a natural number other than one is either a multiple of 4 or exceeds a
multiple of 4 by 1

Funda 3 Percentage Growth

If the percentage growth rate is r for a period of t years, the overall growth rate is
approximately: rt + t * (t-1) * r2 / 2

Note: Derived from the Binomial theorem, this approximation technique works best when
the value of 'r' is small. If the rate is above 10%, then this approximation technique
yields bad results. Also, if the rate is 5% then r = 0.05; if the rate is 7.2% then r = 0.072.
