1 year time is more than enough for cracking this exam.

PHASE 1

The pattern is as follows:

Reasoning- 60 marks

English- 30 marks

Quants- 30 marks

General Awareness- 80 marks

Those who are preparing for various banking or insurance exams will not find phase 1 that difficult.

The cut-off for 2015 was 89, and in 2016 it shoots to 99. Due to increase in competition, it is better to assume that next year might be around 110. So it’s better to aim for 115+, seems difficult but not impossible.

Reasoning: Buy any standard book say R.S. Agarwal and practice from it. For puzzles go through Magical Books on puzzles by BSC Publication. Practice is the only way to score well in this section, aim for 35+ in reasoning.

Quants: Many aspirants who cleared the overall cut-off were not able to clear the sectional cut-off of the quants which is just 7.5 marks out of 30.

If you consider quants tough, then just aim for 10+ marks in this section.

DI consist of 10 marks, even if you solve this, you will be able to clear the sectional cut-off.

Number series consists of 5 marks, out of which 3 is doable easily.

Rest is miscellaneous like profit loss, average, percentage, speed time distance, trains, boats, etc. Master those topics which you find easy and you will be able to clear the cut-off.

Follow Fast Track Arithmetic by Rajesh Verma or R.S Agarwal for this.

Again regular practice is needed.

English: First clear your basic grammatical concepts, for that, you can refer Wren and Martin.

Read newspaper editorials on a daily basis as this will help in enriching your vocabulary and also help you understand the passage easily during the exam.

If you have time, solve Norman Lewis for a good vocabulary.

Rest depends on your practice as this section does not require any special knowledge.

General Awareness:

Out of 80 questions around 50 questions were from last 4 months current affairs, around 20 questions from banking awareness and rest from the static portion.

If you are a regular newspaper reader, then you just need to look at banking awareness and static gk.

Those who don’t want to follow newspaper for this section just read monthly gk digest of gradestack and bankersadda and their capsule before the exam.

Also, see gktoday’s quizzes before the exam.

If you follow this, you will be able to score 60+ easily.

Mock Tests are very important before the exam because it tells where you stand and helps in time management during the actual exam.

Phase 2:

Economic & Social Issues:

First, go through any basic economy book like Ramesh Singh or Sanjeev Verma.

For social issues, one can follow Social Problems in India by Ram Ahuja.

Reading newspaper daily is a must. Preferably The Hindu or The Indian Express.

Union Budget and Economic Survey of that respective year is a must.

I am from engineering background; I just read the books mentioned above along with recent government schemes and Mrunal Videos (Must do if you are comfortable with Hindi).

This year many 1 markers were current affairs only, so if you do GA for phase 1 well, it will help you in this section also.

Number series consists of 5 marks, out of which 3 is doable easily. Rest is miscellaneoust h F aceboo k ESI Questions 2016- https://rbigradeb.com/2016/09/19...  " id="pdf-obj-4-49" src="pdf-obj-4-49.jpg">

Finance & Management:

If you are from non-commerce non-eco background then go through Indian Financial System by Bharti V Pathak or M Y Khan (only selected chapters given in the syllabus only)

NSE’s NCFM financial awareness material also helped a lot in basic understanding.

JAIIB Accounts book for numerical (Ratios and Bonds)

You can also refer to Class 12th NCERT for Ratios numerical.

P.C Tripathi for Management and IGNOU Management notes.

Reading 1 finance newspaper daily is a must. ET or BS or Mint.

Regularly follow RBI, SEBI website for any new policies and updates.

This time, this paper was a little bit technical so a deep understanding is required.

English:

Read editorials daily and make precison any editorial at least once in a week.

Also, read Yojana magazine regularly, it will help in ESI as well as for content for the essay, you can also make precis on the articles.

Booklist for phase 2- https://rbigradeb.com/2016/09/24...

Revision is must because it’s not possible to remember all the data in one go.

Look out for every new government scheme related to social issues and economy.

Complete management part first as it is static and keep revising it regularly till the exam.

Practice essay and precis writing regularly as English will be a tiebreaker.
