1. Numerical Ability (Quantitative Aptitude): NIACL Assistant 2017 Prelims will have Numerical Ability not Quantitative Aptitude. Well, to be very honest, both of the terms are related yet a lot different.

Quantitative Aptitude tests both your numerical ability as well as logical ability. So, in the quantitative aptitude section you need to be very careful about the steps and the logics of the problems. When it comes to numerical ability, it is mainly about the calculation.

In short
  • Quantitative Aptitude = Numerical Ability (Calculation + Speed) + Logical Ability
  • Numerical Ability = Calculation + Speed

So, you need to practice a lot of Simplification, Approximations and Calculations in order to ace the Numerical Ability section of this exam.
The Numerical Ability section is expected to be moderate, similar to what IBPS Clerk Prelims had.
One must focus on the speed in Numerical Ability.

The important chapters in Numerical Ability are:
I) Approximation
