How to prepare for SBI PO 2014 exam in 1 month

Sunday, May 4th, 2014


One of the most common questions that goes through a student’s mind is, “Do I have enough time to prepare?” And if the student is preparing for SBI PO 2014 exam, it becomes of paramount importance, primarily because there is only 1 month left for the exam. SBI PO exam preparation is a tough task but it can be accomplished with a little bit of practice and a little bit of effort. May be, I am being lenient when I am using the phrase ‘little bit’. Probably the phrase should be ‘a lot of effort’ because the SBI Bank PO exam is less than a month away. In this post, I would like to discuss some of the key things that you can do to enhance your preparation for SBI PO.

Marketing Aptitude, Banking Awareness, General Knowledge and Current Affairs

Marketing Aptitude is an important aspect of SBI PO exam. There will be 10 to 15 questions on this topic and it is easy to prepare for. Just look for some of the previous year papers to identify the kind of questions which get asked. In my online SBI PO Coaching course, you get a bunch of questions to practice from.

Questions on Banking Awareness are also very common. You need to quickly run through the history of the Indian banks and also the go through their current heads. Good knowledge of commonly used terms will also help a lot.

For General Knowledge and Current Affairs, it is recommended that you are well versed with the events that have taken place in the last 6 months. That will give you the additional edge required to crack SBI PO.

Data Analysis and Interpretation

I am sure that any SBI PO exam aspirant is aware of what pie charts are and what bar graphs are. Where they lose out is when they take too much time to solve these questions. The most important idea for these questions is – you don’t need to calculate the answer. You need to approximate and eliminate the incorrect options. You will get to the answer a lot faster this way. For SBI PO exam preparation, we have included 50+ videos on this topic.


Reasoning is probably the section that takes the most time. The best way to crack this section is to identify the sets that you should solve. Once you figure out a set, you will be able to solve all the questions involved in that particular set. There are a variety of concepts covered in our SBI PO preparation course.

English Language

This is the section that you can run through very fast. The chances of making an error in this section are quite high. So while you are attempting this section, mark only the questions that you are sure of. Otherwise, you might end up with a below par score in this section because of negative marking.
