The bitter truth of this exam is that, just qualifying the exam will not help you until and unless you score high score. It requires a lot of practice and for this you can go for coaching institutes or self study. These institutes provide bank exam study material. These coaching institutes have tutors to solve doubts, give short hand tricks and prepare you for the exam through mock test series. But without self study investing money and time on these coaching institutes is completely a waste. Whatever you learn in the classes, practice these by solving questions from different work books.
