##### Practice is the mantra: Take Mocks

Taking tests regularly is the best way to achieve this goal. Various types of tests can help you improve on various aspects. Here’s how:

Topic Tests: These tests come in 3 difficulty levels, namely: Level 1 (easy), Level 2 (moderate), Level 3 (difficult). Take these tests to establish your proficiency in a particular topic. Start with the basics and then gradually move from easy to higher difficulty questions.

Sectional Tests: There are 20 sectional tests provided to you for each of English, Quant, and Reasoning. Use these tests to build on your sectional strategies. This will help you focus on each section and think of it as one paper in itself. Fine tune your strengths, identify your weaknesses and work on them.

Full Length Mocks: Take the full-length mocks to give yourself a feel of the exam. Ideally, one full mock must be attempted before you begin your preparation, as this helps you see where you stand and where you need to reach. Think of this as a diagnostic test.

Remember that just attempting a lot of mocks is not enough. You MUST spend a great deal of time analyzing your performance and coming up with ways to improve in the next mock. So, with expert videos and adequate practice, we are positive that you will be able shine the SBI PO exam.
