    Prepare for SBI PO Exam 2015 in 8 Weeks [Prelims Study Plan]

    SBI PO Prelimininary exam study plan,prepare for sbi po recruitment exam 2015,how to prepare for sbi po exam 2015,books for sbi po exam 2015,Study plan for SBI po exam 2015,how to crack sbi po exam 2015SBI PO Recruitments always bring excitement & tensions to individuals aspiring for bank jobs.While the obvious reason is State bank of India being the no.1 public sector in India, high competition is another cause that pushes applicants to start preparations earlier.From the year 2015, SBI has introduced a new exam pattern which has also created many expectations.


    By now, most of you would be busy in submitting the online registrations for 2000 PO jobs in SBI.


    With the last date to apply fast approaching – some common questions are often asked which are: ‘How to prepare for the upcoming sbi po exams 2015’, ‘What is the syllabus’ & ‘What are the important topics’


    We’ve tried to address each of the questions with a detailed study plan for the SBI PO prelims exam scheduled in the month of June 2015.But before proceeding further, let us look at the exam syllabus first.


    SBI PO Prelims Syllabus

    The highlights of SBI PO recruitment`s preliminary test are

    • 100 questions
    • 1 hour time limit
    • Only 3 sections.

    This objective paper will not have GK/ General awareness questions.So you can concentrate only on the 3 core subjects.


    For all those who are appearing for the first time, we have given a complete book list to kickstart your study.


    Quantitative Aptitude: This section will have 35 questions picked from the following chapters:

    • Numbers – Basics of Number Systems; HCF & LCM; Simplication; Number Series
    • Arithmetic – Averages & Allegations; Ratio & Proportion; Percentage, Profit & Loss; Simple & Compound Interest; Age Problems; Speed, Time & Distance; Time & Work
    • Modern Math – Probability; Permutations & Combinations
    • Geometry – Mensuration (question around area, perimeter and volume)
    • DI – Data Interpretation & Data sufficiency

    One of the common question here is whether DI will be part of this section as the section only says “Quantitative Aptitude’.


    It is very likely that DI will be part of QA as most PO exams including IBPS PO refer to this section as “Quantitative Aptitude” but a significant portion of it is dedicated to DI questions.


    Reasoning: It will have 35 questions asked from the below topics:

    • Analytical Reasoning – Seating Arrangements, Grouping, Selection, Matching etc
    • Other Verbal Reasoning - Blood Relations, Coding-decoding, Input-Output, Critical Reasoning (Statement-Assumption, Strong & Weak Arguments, Courses of Action), Direction Sense, Venn diagrams.
    • Non-verbal reasoning – Has not appeared in PO exams recently and is a low priority topic

    While each correct answer fetches you 1 mark, the level of questions would only be of easy to moderate level.


    English: This section shall contain 30 questions from the following areas:

    • Reading Comprehension
    • Grammar
    • Parajumbles
    • Cloze Test & Fill in the blanks
    • Vocabulary

    It is necessary for candidates to score pass mark in each of the above three papers.

    Books you can Use:

    Before moving with the SBI PO study plan, we thought of providing a list of books that will help individuals who are looking to self study from home.


    All the books listed below are very popular among candidates.They have received many positive reviews & rated as cheap & best on Flipkart and Amazon.


    Quantitative aptitude:
    Fast Track Objective Arithmetic by Arihant publications – Rs.317 – Buy online

    Objective English by Hari mohan prasad – Rs.329 – Buy online

    1. Analytical reasoning by M.k pandey – Rs.158 – Buy online
    2. Non-Verbal reasoning by prabhat-javad – Rs.215 – Buy online


    Only if you qualify in the preliminary test, you will be shortlisted for the main exam. Therefore we are giving details of prelims first so that you don't get diverted.
