Books for General Awareness

General Awareness is one of the most crucial sections of the Bank Exams. Students can score very high marks in this section which can decide fate of their overall scoring and can help them in getting final selection. In banking exams General Awareness part mainly consists of current affairs which constitute almost 90-95% of the section and rest questions are on conventional GK, mostly related to finance and banking. The only difference between PO & Clerical exams are the level of questions. In clerical exams questions are quite basic in nature whereas in PO exam you need to have depth knowledge of current affairs. As I have also said earlier that you can easily solve 80-90% of these questions in 10-12 minutes of time, provided you are well prepared. For preparation of this section we would recommend monthly magazines such as “Banking Services Chronicle” and “Competition Success Review” and for those who are looking for a good quality Hindi magazine they can refer to “Pratiyogita Durpan”. You need to refer to other sources as well which we have already discussed in the section “How to Prepare for General Awareness”.
