My name is Abhishek Srivastava . I am a 2014 B.tech (EEE) passout. I got placed with the very first company which came for campus placement in my college.I am currently working with the same MNC. Initial months at work were really good but as the time passed i realized that i do not belong here. So i finally decided to prepare for banking exam as i have already appeared for it in past during my free time after my engineering was completed and i started working. But the biggest challenge now was how to maintain a balance between the preparation & work in the office for around 10 hours a day. So finally i prepared a TO DO LIST and worked on it.
Now before i tell you about my preparation strategy let me tell you about my failures.
- SBI Associate PO(Disqualified)
- IBPS-PO-IV (Missed Cut-Off by 2 Marks)(No matter if i would have got those 2 marks but still would have not made to the final.)
- SBI-PO(Disqualified in Pre).
- IBPS-PO-V (Pre-56.5),(Mains-104.5), (Overall-55)
Final Allotment (Union Bank of India)
Focus on DI part the Most. It can help you to get a decent score. As i was short of time i could not focus on solving problems from books but you can prefer Sarvesh Kumar if you want to clear concepts.
- Quizzes of Bankers Adda of last three months before appearing for exam.
- Bankers Adda Exam Capsules are a Sanjeevani & a must.
- Quizzes of Day2DayGK.com last three months.
- Basic & clear Understanding of Banking terms.
- Read The HIndu on daily basis if possible it will help you in GA & English too.
Make this section your strong hold it won't betray you but make sure you are prepared enough with the new sets of Questions & not just the traditional ones.
Go for online lectures for each topic to clear your concepts & if you want book to practice go for MK Pandeygo for practice the toughest of them so you don't have a pitfall in exam.
Bankers Add Daily Quizzes is a must.
Sorry but i can not help you much in this section as i read a lot(NOVELS) from my college days so this section has not been much of concern did not prepared separately for this section best thing is to focus on Cloze test it will surely help you to clear the cut-off if you are not good at it. Second thing is the comprehension part try to score well in this. Develop a reading habit without bothering much about the meaning in the first go. Gradually you will improve.
If you have plenty of Time you can prefer SP Bakshi.
