Tips on Solving DATA INTERPRETATION Problems

September 27th, 2010 Posted in Uncategorized

Data may be represented in a number of complex forms, and hence solving Data Interpretation problems becomes far more difficult. There is no fixed format for solving such problems, and each has to be tackled in its own distinct way. Thus, to answer such questions correctly, it is essential to practice all types of Data Interpretation exercises a number of times, so as to be familiar with all the data presentation types. Yet, there are some primary guidelines that can always be followed:

Tips on Solving DATA INTERPRETATION Problems:

a) Read the data very carefully, as the smallest detail may change the meaning of the question completely. Similarly, the instructions have to be understood carefully to prevent wasting time in calculating data that is not required, and also to find out exactly what is the answer that is sought.

b) Try to understand the data provided carefully, before jumping to answer the questions. The questions are designed to be deceptive, and proper understanding of the requirements is a must. If the Data Interpretation is of the Combined variety or if there are more than one data table/charts/graphs, try to understand the relation between the given tables. For Example, one table may talk about absolute sales figures, while the other table may talk of sales as a percentage of production. Hence, any question on excess production or Goods in stock, will require data from both tables.

c) Be very careful of the units used in the tables, and the units in which the answers (options) are provided. A mistake in the units may yield an entirely different answer. Also be careful of whether the answer is required in decimal or percentage. Such errors are common and easily avoidable.
