‘Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm’, says Yogendra who cleared RRB PO and SBI Clerk 2016, while working full-time. Read Success Strategy of Yogendra Kumar below:
“Hello Friends, I’m Yogendra Kumar from Chhattisgarh, currently working at SBI as an assistant. I have cleared SBI Clerk and RRB PO in the year 2016. Before I proceed with my strategy I would just like to share something about my background. Friends, I graduated in the year 2011 with an Engineering degree. Soon after my graduation I started teaching at one of the colleges and worked for 4 long years. I decided to switch to the banking sector in the lookout for good opportunity. Hence, started my preparation while working full time.
Here is my Section Wise Preparation Strategy:
Quantitative Aptitude: I didn’t refer any of the books at my initial stage, instead I started with writing free mock tests and attempting previous years question papers. After attempting quite a few papers I got an idea regarding which all sections I am good at, and in which all chapters I need practice. After initial screening, I started with Banking Services Chronicles and worked on those grey areas. Once I was done with the fundamentals I referred M.Tyra and increased my pace of attempting the questions. At last, started taking Mock tests where I would say Oliveboard test series helped me a lot in terms of providing a real-time experience of the examination and hone my skills vis a vis attempting questions from all the sections of the exam.
Logical Reasoning: I heavily relied on the chapters like input and output, syllogism and puzzles. For puzzles, I referred ‘Magical book on puzzle’ by DSC publications. For the aspirants who are taking the banking exams this year, I would say start with the easy and small problems like direction sense or blood-relation problems based upon your strength and then go for puzzles, as this will help you in increasing your confidence. Do not try anything new on the day of the examination, devise your best strategy by taking mock tests at home. You can choose Oliveboard for mock tests if you want to take your game on to the next level.
English: I started my English preparation by working upon the tenses. I feel that tense is a very important chapter and it helps you in the problems based on error correction.
For reading comprehension, current affairs and vocabulary building I relied only on the newspapers like ‘The Hindu’ and ‘The Times of India’. However, if you have time crunch then one can also refer to affairscloud for current affairs.
To conclude, I would suggest to everyone who is preparing for a banking examination for the first time to first identify your strength and weakness and then devise your strategy accordingly so that you can work upon them.
Good Luck !!”
