Mathematics will no longer be a nightmare

Today I will confess to you something which you might get surprised at. During my early school days I was very scared of mathematics as a subject. I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I might be delivering seminars on quicker math techniques or will be teaching students of competitive examinations like CAT, GMAT, etc or will be writing a blog on fast calculation tricks.

Why Mathematics was so important?

In examinations, there was always a need to maintain proper balance between speed and accuracy. When I tried to finish the paper in time, I used to end up making silly mistakes and when I tried to be very cautious, I lost out on speed. Read More

Books for Bank Exams

Bank exams, be it Bank PO (probationary officer) examination or Bank Clerical are not that difficult to crack as many people presume them to be. The main issue in this area is “vacancies : applicants” ratio. So instead of focusing on the toughness of the paper, one needs to concentrate on preparation. One has to surpass the scores of many others in order to stand a chance.

The first thing you need to know is the pattern of the exam. A written test for a bank exam consists of 2 parts, objective part and a descriptive part.
