Hi Shrikanth,
I am sure that your work-ex will be a great asset for you in the admissions. BUt for that you need to clear the writtens. LEt me tell you one thing very clearly about CAT. There are no shortcuts in CAT writtens. You will have to put in as much effort as the fresh BC0m grad taking CAT. As far as preparation schedule is concerned, please visit the link and try to stick to it.

CAT is easy to crack if one is sincer enough. Also try to join some coaching institute to help you keep the focus in your preparations.

aim for moon, nothing less

i appeared for CAT after 4 years of work ex, so there is no funda that 15 month will be an hindrance in your preparation.
first get a schedule which is as flexible as possible and second is study any where and any time. dont let any excuse to give you a chance to your study hours.

then focus on your weak points and just hammer them

and this is all tht takes to be an IIM grad
