For eg. in the above-given topics, let’s say you pick the topic which is ‘Data Analysis & Interpretation’.
Now, this topic is extremely exhaustive and comprises of different types of charts & graphs. Pick a graph, say ‘Line Graph’ and understand the different aspects of it properly. Check if there are any shortcuts/tricks available online in the form of videos. Also, check what kinds of questions have been asked previously. Once that is done, start solving questions on Line Graph. Analysis your attempts with the help of detailed solutions and see where are you lacking. Once you get the feeling that you have solved enough number of questions, move to a different topic. Finish this exercise by the 1st week of February 2019.
Test Your Preparation by Taking RBI Assistant Prelims 2020 Mock Tests
Once the above exercise is done for most of the topics mentioned in the syllabus, it’s time to test your quantitative aptitude skills in a controlled environment. Start solving Mock Tests to understand your performance and to improve upon it. Spend more time at mock tests’ analysis as the key to better performance would be lying over there. Have a look at the detailed solutions of the questions you answered incorrectly and see where’s the gap in your understanding. Similarly, have a look at the solutions of the questions you couldn’t answer. Skipping an easy/moderate question wouldn’t make sense. The mock test will also provide you with your All India Rank so that it’ll be easy for you to track how much more effort do you need to put to be amongst the top performers.
