Hi Friends,

I am not giving you any strategy because you all are smart & followers of BANKERSADDA. In the early stage of my Banking exam preparation, BANKERSADDA was my only platform to prepare. Every post of BANKERSADDA is error free & helpful. I always solve daily quizzes & note the important points. One thing I want to say you from my initial preparation to till now I have not given any speed test/online test but each & every time I focus on my basic knowledge. If your basic is clear then you can attend any type of difficult question. Always I try to find out how to approach new-new types of questions; though it may take me more time to solve, right approach always makes me different from others.

Finally, I want to say Prepare in your own way & in your own style but try to make some difference in your preparation, so that you can compete with lakhs of students.

                                    Wish you all a Bright Future.


हर रोज़ गिर कर भी,
                मुकम्मल खड़े हैं!
ऐ जिंदगी देख,
            मेरे हौसले तुझसे भी बड़े हैं......
