    Re: Syllabus of bank exams? How to prepare for those exams?

    candidate will have to
    200-250 objective questions within 2 hours & this makes it a necessity for fast mind
    calculations.

    1) Allocate maximum time for preparing Aptitude & Reasoning sections.

    2) Quantitative aptitude will deal with basic maths – algebra,profit loss,percentage problems,arithmetic problems etc.Books of Std.10th would help in preparing for this.

    3) Practice is the only key to crack Reasoning questions.Questions would be based on diagrams, statements,analysis etc, & will test your problem solving skills.

    4) Test of English will have questions on grammar, vocabulary,synonyms,antonyms,fill-in-the blanks,sentence formation etc.,Books on basic english language would suffice.

    5) General awareness -Read newspapers with special focus on banking & finance,money markets,global business.

    6) Do not guess wildly & blindly as there is negative marks for each wrong answer.

    Re: Syllabus of bank exams? How to prepare for those exams?

    Preparing for PO Exam : Candidates will have to answer
    200-250 objective questions within 2 hours & this makes it a necessity for fast mind
    calculations.

    1) Allocate maximum time for preparing Aptitude & Reasoning sections.

    2) Quantitative aptitude will deal with basic maths – algebra,profit loss,percentage problems,arithmetic problems etc.Books of Std.10th would help in preparing for this.

    3) Practice is the only key to crack Reasoning questions.Questions would be based on diagrams, statements,analysis etc, & will test your problem solving skills.

    4) Test of English will have questions on grammar, vocabulary,synonyms,antonyms,fill-in-the blanks,sentence formation etc.,Books on basic english language would suffice.

    5) General awareness -Read newspapers with special focus on banking & finance,money markets,global business.

    6) Do not guess wildly & blindly as there is negative marks for each wrong answer.

    Bank Exams are in hot demand these days. The number of candidates who are applying for bank exams are going on increasing.

    The entry level positions in various banks are
    -Clerical positions
    -Probationary Officers

    The selection procedure for both these positions is by
    -Written Exam
    -Interview

    The written exam consists of questions from the following categories
    -Reasoning
    -Quantitative Aptitude
    -General Awareness
    -General English

    If you are appearing for PO Exams, then you need to appear for Descriptive Test also.

    To score high marks in the written exam and to get a call for the Interview, you need to be strong enough in the above mentioned aspects.

    So, start preparing for the same.

    As a part of your preparation, I suggest you the following books to prepare for Bank Exams.

    R.S.Agarwal publications for Reasoning and Aptitude
    Upkar Publications for General English
    YES publications current affairs for General Awareness
    For English, you can use any book which is available in the market which is having good content on the following aspects of
    -Vocabulary

    -Fundamental Grammar aspects.

    Have good preparation for the respective bank exam which you want to appear for and crack the same.
