supratim : 1. Please do solve simple equation , ratio -proportion variation , Percentage -profit-loss , SI-CI , Average-Mixture , T&W , T&D , geometry -basics , Approximation / simplification , Numbers-basic ( HCF/LCM ) , Quadartic comparison 2. Write online sectional tests of Quant along with other areas 3. Write full lengths Mock tests


bbsa6a262 : HOW TO IMPROVE SPEED IN SIMPLIFICATION AND NUMBER SERIES
hidayathullah : For Simplifications - Learn 20 Multiplication tables, squares of first 50 Natural numbers, Cubes of first 15 Natural Numbers, Reciprocal Values (Percentage Equivalents). Please practice previous year papers also.


sonu : SIR IAM GOOD IN DI BUT SOLVING MISSING VALUES QUESTION IS LITTLE DIFFICULT SO HOW TO IMPROVE MY ACCURACY TO SOLVE SUCH TYPE OF QUESTIONS IN EXAMINATION SUGGEST ME WHETHER TO ATTEMPT SUCH TYPE OF QUESTIONS IN EXAM OR CONCENTRATE ON OTHER QUESTIONS
supratim : Please do solve those questions. They are easy to solve if you practise them. Please do consult a faculty member and learn how to solve them .


john : HOW TO SOLVE QUADRATIC EQNS WITH BIGGER VALUES IN SHORTER SPAN OF TIME?
supratim : First know the correct method then improvise by using option or using the formula .


nithin : SIR PLZ LIST THE TOPICS THAT MUST PREPARE FIRST IN QUANT...
hidayathullah : Simplifications / Approx, Quadratic Comparisons, Individual Quant topics (EPPV, PPL, TW, TD, AMA, Geo & Mensuration etc), Data Interpretaion.


puspanjali : HOW TO IMPROVE SPEED IN SIMPLIFICATION AND NUMBER SERIES
supratim : In number series : After solving the question , frame a question with a different number ( change the first number ) but with same logic. Do it for 30/40 questions and you will become reasonably good in number series 2. Simplification : Learn how to compare fractions , how to do percentage to fraction , how to do fraction to percentage , square of numbers , cube of numbers , basic algebra formula's , how to do back calculation of percentages , powers of 2 , powers of 3 etc. It will take 7/10 days hard work to improve calculation speed . Do it. You can. All The Best.


john : USING THE CORRECT METHOD IS QUITE SUCCESSFUL FOR 1 OR 2 DIGITS NUMBERS, IT IS TOUGH TO FIND FACTORS FOR A 4 OR 5 DIGIT NUMBER (QUADRATIC EQNS)
hidayathullah : Please do not attempt Quadratic comparison questions with big numbers. Also,when the numbers are big,you may first check for any common factor and then decide. You may use factorization method where ever possible.


nithin : SIR,WHETHER TO START DI PART OR TO START NON-DI PART FIRST??
hidayathullah : Solve in the following order - Simplifications / Approx, Series, Individual Quant , Quadratic Comparisons, DI.


nithin : SIR, I AM SOLVING JUST FEW QUESTIONS IN MENTIONED TIME I.E. TAKING MORE TIME TO SOLVE ONE QUESTION.KINDLY GIVE SOME TIPS TO IMPROVE MY SPEED IN QUANT.
hidayathullah : Practice online sectional and mock tests. You need to analyse each and every test after taking the exam. This will help you to understand where the time is over shooting.


john : SIR HOW DO U RATE THE QUANTS SECTION IN PO MAINS? AND WHAT COULD BE THE OVERALL CUTOFF?
supratim : It was difficult . But a good student could have identified the right question to answer . Cut-off depends on all test takers performance and number of calls Bank wants to give. So please do not speculate . wait for the result. Continue your hard work if you are writing other exams. All The Best.


msmaddyp : SIR, I HAVE A VERY WEAK BASE IN MATH. IS THERE ANYTHING BASIC THAT I CAN PRACTICE BEFORE MOVING ON TO TOUGHER PROBLEMS?
supratim : Yes . Steps 1) Practise and improve calculation speed 2) Solve simple equation chapter - if we know how to frame an equation then half the problem solved .3) Solve ratio -proportion -variation , this will give you good foundation for other chapters. 4) Solve percentage -profit -loss.


sapoora : SIR HOW TO PREPAIR FOR DI IN SHORT TIME WITH SPEED
supratim : 1. Improve calculation techniques /know methods of comparison of fractions, percentage to fraction calculation, fraction to percentage calculation etc 2. Solve percentage -profit & loss chapter-improve your knowledge of basic concepts . 3. Start solving DI . I think with 2 hours practise everyday , in a matter of 10 days you can improve a lot.


sapoora : IAM NON MATHAS STUDENT SO PLEASE SUGGEST FOR ME HOW TO PREPAIR IN DI
supratim : 1. Solve and improve basic calculation techniques 2. Solve percentage -profit & loss chapter 3. Start solving DI .


john : CAN U GIVE SOME TIPS ON PIPES AND CISTERNS AND MIXTURES AND ALLEGATIONS?
supratim : 1. In pipes & cisterns - always look for the time to fill up the empty tank and time to empty the filled tank and then apply the basic concepts of positive 7 negative work 2. For mixtures - try to know the concept of weighted average and percentage . Allegation is nothing but a rule/concept to solve questions faster. First improve the basic and then know how to solve it faster . Concept and speed both should go hand in hand.


bbsa6a262 : SIR SOMETIMES CALCULATING THE QUANT QUESTIONS AS PER THE CONCEPT BEHIND IT TAKES A LOT OF TIME. SO HOW TO IMPROVE MY SPEED IN QUANT?
supratim : Write online sectional tests. Bridge the gap between concept and application in real time.


kanhaa : SIR/MADAM , HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR BOAT AND STREAMS BECUASE THE CHAPTER IS ALWAYS CONFUSING FOR ME ??
supratim : Know the concept of with the stream or down stream ( V+U) and against the stream or upstream ( V-u) .then apply basic concept of time & distance ( S*T=D) .


sapoora : SIR IN THE RATIO PROPOTION CHAPTER HOW TO PREPAIR THAT CHAPTER IN THAT CLASS IS VERY EASY BUT AFTER I WILL SLOVE THE ANTHOER PROBLEM SO DIFICULT. WHAT CAN DO
supratim : First solve simple equation then move to ratio -proportion-variation . You are facing problem in framing equation after interpretation of the question.


shubha : SIR, HOW TO IMPROVE ENGLISH GRAMMAR AND VOCABULARY WHICH IS NECESSARY FOR BANK EXAMS?
supratim : Please attend all English classes and talk to faculty members. Solve questions from study material booklet . Allocate 2 hours daily to prepare for English .


john : HOW MANY SETS OF DI CAN WE EXPECT IN CLERKS MAINS? CONSIDERING 50 QS IN QUANTS. SHOULD I APPROACH CASELETS AND VENN DIAGRAMS BECAUSE THE APPROACH HAS BEEN WEAK SINCE THE BEGINNING.
supratim : Very difficult to ascertain number of sets. But expect 2/3 sets 9 approx-10-15 questions ). Solve basic venn diagram questions. Its just a matter of 2/3 hours hard work. All The Best.


shubha : SIR, HOW TO PREPARE ARITHMETIC PROBLEMS,BECAUSE THOSE ARE VERY MUCH TIME CONSUMING .
supratim : Know ratio-proportion variation. T&W , T&D and Average -Mixture will become very easy after that.


shyla : IN SIMPLIFICATION PROBLEMS, HOW TO SOLVE BIGGER NUMBER IN SQUARE ROOT.
supratim : Do square of options instead of square root.


kanhaa : HOW CAN I SOLVE APPROXIMATE PROBLEM ??
supratim : Know the basics of comparison of fractions , percentage to fraction , fraction to percentage , squares and cubes of numbers etc. then start solving questions from study material.


sapoora : SIR YOU ANY TIPS FOR BIG FRACTIONS
supratim : Convert them in percentage and then compare.


shubha : SIR, AS TIME SERIES IS IMP TOPIC FOR BANK EXAM MINIUMU HOW MANY SETS WE HAVE TO SOLVE TO GET GRIP ON THIS?
supratim : 15 to 20.


kanhaa : WHAT IS THE EXPECTED CUT OFF FOR THE IBPS CLERK PRELIMS THIS YEAR ?
supratim : Depends on all test takers performance and number of calls IBPS wants to give for next round.
