Best IBPS Books for Preparation

Help me to Share!

Test Series

Bank prep course
Books are keys to success for any exam. As I have suggested to read at least one book on each subject in my previous posts. Candidates should polish their basics by using Quicker maths book by M. Tyra listed below. Candidates make big mistake while choosing books for exams. Never choose an all in one book, these kind of guides doesn't concentrate on fundamentals and try to present more and more question with answer keys, following these kind of books won't take you anywhere.

  11. do ont buy 20 practice test ibps clerk by arihant publication.

    I have bought 20 practice test ibps clerk by Arihant publication book but am not satisfied with it at all....the book has been made very carelessly........

    there are a lot of mistakes in the solution given...for example in practice test 1 answer no. 16,17and 22 in reasoning are wrong....

    the answer in English for question no. 82 is definitely wrong...and can be spotted without any effort....

    same goes with the rest of the book.......

    1. Hi, Supriyo. You definitely have time to crack PO exam. Age limit for IBPS 28 so you still have 2-3 chances left and with the kind of commitment you are willing to show, i'm sure you will soon crack the PO exam. All the best.

    1. Good question
      Most of the times other sellers don't have all the books I recommend to my readers. Further they sell books at lowest price and deliver within 3 days. Till now I am unable to find Flipkart alternative. I personally buy lots of books and all the times I purchase from them, even if they sell at a higher price but it doesn't matter as I am their loyal customer who is highly satisfied with their services.

  43. Hello Sir,

    I did attempt 117 in IBPS Clerk exam but couldn't clear the exam & that was a big blow because after doing all the hard work, if such result came, then its difficult to go again & start hard work from the scratch. But in one of your posts, you said that those who failed in the clerk, you will have ample opportunity & there is no need to discourage, really helped.

    Those words are really very encouraging because many students just stop giving exams after such results. So slowly but surely, I have again started preparations. My Maths is quite weak so I have purchased a book of M. Tyra to improve that.

    Thank you very much once again Sir.
