Reasoning Ability and Computer Aptitude Section Strategy

  • The trick to attempt maximum number of questions in Reasoning Section in minimum time is to attempt the difficult puzzles in the end. 
  • Start with the questions that are not in the form of puzzles, you can choose to start with the questions based on inequalities, direction and distance, syllogism, coding-decoding, alphanumeric series, and other random topics. 
  • Then try to start with puzzles that appear easy to solve and proceed with moderate and difficult puzzles in a similar way. So, this is how you have to manage to attempt this section.
  • Computer Aptitude is a subject that many students are already familiar with. Although in SBI PO Mains there were no questions from computer aptitude but as an aspirant yearning to score maximum in exam, you should revise this subject as well. So in case if there is a set of questions in this section from computer aptitude; they will help you score.

  • But if you are good at grammar, attempt Reading Comprehension in the end. 
  • The Reading comprehension too should be attempted in a way that you attempt questions based on vocab and phrases first and then the questions that need a deeper penetration through the paragraphs.
