    Re: Books for English descriptive paper for IBPS PO?

    The syllabus and pattern of the IBPS exam for the post of PO involves both the objective as well as the descriptive sections. The descriptive part is equally important as that of the objective as the candidates will be assessed separately for both the sections. The chances of calling for the interview will be zero if they fail in the descriptive part. The candidates should be well aware about the current social and economical happenings to perform well in this section as they will be asked to write essays on a given topic. Also important is to have a good command over the English language as there can be questions on Letter writing, precise writing etc. The candidates should have good thinking skills. You can try writing essays on current hot topics and practice accordingly. Apart from this, there are many reference books which you can refer. Some of the books are Bank Descriptive Test- Argumentative Situation Test by H S Bhatia, Descriptive English & Communication Skills by K Kundan etc. Apart from this, there are many books in Descriptive Writing, Descriptive Paragraphs etc. which the candidates can make use of to score high in the descriptive paper area.
