Hello and welcome to ExamPunditMost of the members have asked for the IBPS PO Prelims Strategy and here we are rolling out the IBPS PO Prelims 2015 Strategy and How to Prepare for it.

So, Lets Get Started!

Quantitative Aptitude

We are starting with the Most (In)Famous Test among the candidates. Since the start of 2015, Quantitative Aptitude have always been raising eyebrows! So, there are two things you need to focus on Quantitative Aptitude. One is Time Management and the other is Calculations. These two factors will decide quite a lot of things.

For calculations, a lot of Simplifications will help you to gain the speed. Not every time you need to do Calculative Problems while practicing. However, you need to focus on what is your speed and how are you maintaining it.

Profit & Loss, Average, Percentage can be very calculative. For this, you need to focus on the perfect way you can solve. If you are not able to understand any short cut way or you don’t have any, just make one. 22+10 is equals to 32, some will do it with 20+10+2 and some will do it 22+10 directly. So the point is that you need find ways which makes your brain calm! You need to focus on YOUR Methods and then increase their speed.

For those who are fan of Formulas and Short Cuts given by the experts, they need to focus on speed and application.

Daily 2 hours of Quantitative Aptitude if you are Quite Good at it or else you need to give 3 hours on a regular basis for these days to ace it. In case you spend too much time, there is a possibility you can be tired for other tests. So, make it simple and when you practice just take it in a sporty way.
For Number Series the students with good Logical Reasoning skills, will find it easy. You need to implement logic in the series real fast.

English

The English subject has caused a lot of damage silently among many aspirants. It is because a lot of candidates tend to avoid it. Bitter truth. Reading Faster is the key to score maximum in Comprehension. So make sure you read Online News Papers on a regular basis. Note down the words which are not so familiar. It will help you to increase your vocabulary.

Coming to the grammar part, you cannot ace it easily. However, you need to learn the basics for Prelims. So, learn the basics of English Grammar and try to translate lines from your local language newspapers to English. It will help you to judge your grammar skills and boost up your confidence.

Reasoning

Reasoning is not a huge problem for many. So just practice Logical Reasoning based on Syllogisms, Directions, Seating Arrangements, and Inequalities a lot. In logical reasoning, similar to Quantitative Aptitude, you need to focus on Time Management. Logical Reasoning is a test which can be very easy for the aspirants if they ace it in time. So what you need to do, you need to focus on Speed and try to maintain it. Achieve a moderate speed which can be maintained. No need to be Albert Einstein and lose all your preparation and end up attempting below average.
Reasoning needs practice and precision. So focus on that and you can surely and will ace it!

Time For Practice:

For Good in Quantitative Aptitude Candidates:

 Test Name Time/Day Quantitative Aptitude 2 Hours Reasoning 1 to 1.5 Hours English 2 Hours and Anytime Reading.

For Not-So-Good in Quantitative Aptitude Candidates:

These allotted times per day need total Dedication. So It might seem less to many candidates but try ONE DAY with full dedication and total concentration and you will find them quite a lot of time.

Start off your FAVORITE TIME TO STUDY(Morning/Day/Evening/Night Depends) with the subject you love. Then go for the subject you don’t like. You will be learning faster than Barry Allen.
