Effective Strategy for SBI PO Prelims Exam

Before you start your exam preparation it is very important to make a proper study plan for all the sections namely, Quantitative Aptitude, Logical Reasoning and English Language.

1.      Quantitative Aptitude:  To prepare for this section one needs to master the concepts and practice maximum. Make a list of all the topics covered by SBI PO Exam by going through the previous year question papers. Start working on these topics with a proper plan. If you start in the month of January 2018, then you will be able to complete the syllabus by the end of March 2018. It means that before the tentative date of the examination. Once you have covered the syllabus practice daily on bank mock test series and allocate your weak areas and try to improve it.

2.      Reasoning:  Reasoning is scoring section as it does not need any formal preparation of formulae or concepts. One should have an analytical aptitude to solve the puzzles. There are various topics you need to practice only; there is no need to remember any rule or concept, just the technique to handle the quizzes. The more you practice, the more you become perfect in solving reasoning questions. Follow the steps in a sequence to solve the twisted questions.

3.      English Language:  Last year the pattern and level of English Language section has completely changed. It has become comprehensive and challenging. In order to solve these questions one needs practical and dynamic approach towards English language than just a conventional grammatical knowledge. Understand the new pattern by joining any online bank test series to practice it.
