Some Important Tips Related to IBPS & SBI PO Exam Preparation

Observing the Drastic Change in the Exam Pattern and Types of Questions being asked these days in Banking Exam specially Mains Exam of all the PO Exam either it’s SBI PO or IBPS PO. It is now required that you will have to change the way you used to prepare this exam earlier. If you have given any PO level exam in recent time then you must have Noticed three things - Sharp Increase in Cut off, Change in Exam Pattern and with change came High Level of New Pattern Questions which were generally used to asked in CAT Exam 2–3 Years before.
So here I am recommending you some Books and How to Prepare from that Book for Upcoming Bank PO Exam.
  1. First thing about IBPS PO or SBI PO Exam Preparation, I would like to recommend you to prepare for Mains Exam. Here most of the Aspirants commit Mistake and focus on Prelim exam but they don't understand that the real war is in mains exam. 
  2. Get books like Quantum CAT by Sarvesh Verma for Quantitative Aptitude, SP bakshi and Plinth to Paramount for English Section. MK Pandey can be referred for reasoning but I don’t feel it as sufficient. So I would suggest attempt oliveboard questions and also bankersadda quiz section for high level Reasoning section.
  3. Learn Logical Reasoning, lots of people ignore this and loose 10-12 easy marks in mains exam. In logical questions are based on Statement - Course of Action, Statement - Arguments etc.
  4. Any Exam Preparation consist two Part - First is Learning Basic and Clearing your Fundamentals and Second is Practicing lots of Questions. In the Starting try to solve each and every question from Savesh verma or in Reasoning section without any time limit. You should be able to solve CAT level questions too if time limit is removed.
  5. Once you are comfortable solving questions of all the difficulty levels in the book, go for mock tests. This is the most important stage. By Practicing Chapter wise you have learnt concept and Now your knowledge will be tested for implementation through mock test.
  6. Give Mock test seriously and consider every mock as your final exam. In the mock test analysis is most important part, if you are able to analyze your test properly then definitely you will improve your marks in coming paper.
  7. Also Mock tests are for Improvement, In the starting if you are not getting good marks then don’t get demotivated keep Practicing you will reach your destination.
  8. Make a Proper study plan for Preparation and divide your preparation in two part first before notification and second after notification. In the first part your focus should be learn everything and mainly mains level questions.
  9. Once notification comes switch your focus to prelim and start attempting more and more mock and doing lots of chapter wise preparation but always provide 2-3 hours to you daily activities like reading newspaper, vocabulary and current affairs. Don't try to make current affairs as past affairs it will be a burden.
  10. For Preparation of General Awareness you need to Prepare all three section - Banking , Static and Current Part. Try to cover Banking and Static part in the starting of your Preparation and Make a proper notes for Revision.
  11. Never assume which questions will be asked in the exam or which type of difficulty level can be asked. They can change the pattern as per their convenience and requirement. Your job is to prepare for the worst case scenario.
