HOW MUCH MARKS OUT OF 200(ONLY WRITTEN ) SHOULD BE SCORED TO CLEAR CUT OFF IN GENERAL CATEGORY... DO SCORING FIFTY PERCENT IN GD +PI AND DESCRIPTIVE PAPER WILL BE ENOUGH TO CLEAR CUT OFF ... WHAT WAS CUT OFF MARKS LAST YEAR OUT OF 300 FOR GENERAL CATEGORY ??? IF POSSIBLE THROW SOME LIGHT

Pardon me if am wrong

question related to these types generally not asked in sbi po exams.

markinson SaysWeakness is non verbal, GK, number series.

Please contribute with your expertise on above said topics. For Non Verbal practice is the only key and believe me with practice you will start saying that Non Verbal is the most easy topic in LR.

For GK just try to tune into the world/national news on Akaswani (All India Radio), it will help you to solve at least 50% of the questions of General Awareness. And if you have time stick to a good newspaper which will help you in GK as well improving your English Section.

With a little practice, it's not hard to recall

the decimal equivalents of fractions up to 10/11!

First, there are 3 you should know already:

1/2 = .5

1/3 = .333...

1/4 = .25

Starting with the thirds, of which you already know one:

1/3 = .333...

2/3 = .666...

You also know 2 of the 4ths, as well, so there's only one new one to learn:

1/4 = .25

2/4 = 1/2 = .5

3/4 = .75

Fifths are very easy. Take the numerator (the number on top),

double it, and stick a decimal in front of it.

1/5 = .2

2/5 = .4

3/5 = .6

4/5 = .8

There are only two new decimal equivalents to learn with the 6ths:

1/6 = .1666...

2/6 = 1/3 = .333...

3/6 = 1/2 = .5

4/6 = 2/3 = .666...

5/6 = .8333...

What about 7ths? We'll come back to them

at the end. They're very unique.

8ths aren't that hard to learn, as they're just

smaller steps than 4ths. If you have trouble

with any of the 8ths, find the nearest 4th,

and add .125 if needed:

1/8 = .125

2/8 = 1/4 = .25

3/8 = .375

4/8 = 1/2 = .5

5/8 = .625

6/8 = 3/4 = .75

7/8 = .875

9ths are almost too easy:

1/9 = .111...

2/9 = .222...

3/9 = .333...

4/9 = .444...

5/9 = .555...

6/9 = .666...

7/9 = .777...

8/9 = .888...

10ths are very easy, as well.

Just put a decimal in front of the numerator:

1/10 = .1

2/10 = .2

3/10 = .3

4/10 = .4

5/10 = .5

6/10 = .6

7/10 = .7

8/10 = .8

9/10 = .9

Remember how easy 9ths were? 11th are easy in a similar way,

assuming you know your multiples of 9:

1/11 = .090909...

2/11 = .181818...

3/11 = .272727...

4/11 = .363636...

5/11 = .454545...

6/11 = .545454...

7/11 = .636363...

8/11 = .727272...

9/11 = .818181...

10/11 = .909090...

As long as you can remember the pattern for each fraction, it is

quite simple to work out the decimal place as far as you want

or need to go!

Oh, I almost forgot! We haven't done 7ths yet, have we?

One-seventh is an interesting number:

1/7 = .142857142857142857...

For now, just think of one-seventh as: .142857

See if you notice any pattern in the 7ths:

1/7 = .142857...

2/7 = .285714...

3/7 = .428571...

4/7 = .571428...

5/7 = .714285...

6/7 = .857142...

Notice that the 6 digits in the 7ths ALWAYS stay in the same

order and the starting digit is the only thing that changes!

If you know your multiples of 14 up to 6, it isn't difficult to,

work out where to begin the decimal number. Look at this:

For 1/7, think "1 * 14", giving us .14 as the starting point.

For 2/7, think "2 * 14", giving us .28 as the starting point.

For 3/7, think "3 * 14", giving us .42 as the starting point.

For 4/14, 5/14 and 6/14, you'll have to adjust upward by 1:

For 4/7, think "(4 * 14) + 1", giving us .57 as the starting point.

For 5/7, think "(5 * 14) + 1", giving us .71 as the starting point.

For 6/7, think "(6 * 14) + 1", giving us .85 as the starting point.

Practice these, and you'll have the decimal equivalents of

everything from 1/2 to 10/11 at your finger tips!

If you want to demonstrate this skill to other people, and you know

your multiplication tables up to the hundreds for each number 1-9, then give them a

calculator and ask for a 2-digit number (3-digit number, if you're up to it!) to be

divided by a 1-digit number.

If they give you 96 divided by 7, for example, you can think,

"Hmm... the closest multiple of 7 is 91, which is 13 * 7, with 5 left over.

So the answer is 13 and 5/7, or: 13.7142857

PLZ post your queries for tips and tricks...

dadynady SaysHey dude ,i m waiting 4 ur neat shortcut calculating methods......:shocked:

Area = lw

Perimeter = 2l 2w

Area = bh

Area = 1/2 of the base X the height = 1/2 bh

Perimeter = a b c

Perimeter = P = a b1 b2 c

The distance around the circle is a circumference. The distance across the circle is the diameter (d). The radius (r) is the distance from the center to a point on the circle. (Pi = 3.14)

d = 2r

c = pd = 2 pr

A = pr2

(p=3.14)

Volume = lwh

Surface = 2lw 2lh 2wh

Volume = Base area X Height

Surface = 2b Ph

Volume = pr2 h

Surface = 2prh

V = 1/3 bh

b is the area of the base

Surface Area: Add the area of the base to the sum of the areas of all of the triangular faces. The areas of the triangular faces will have different formulas for different shaped bases.

Cones

Volume = 1/3 pr2 x height = 1/3 pr2h

Surface = pr2 prs = pr2 pr

Volume = 4/3 pr^3

Surface area = 4pr^2

1. Simple Interest =PNR/100where, P --> Principal amount

N --> time in years

R --> rate of interest for one year2. Compound interest(abbreviated C.I.) = A -P =

where A is the final amount, P is the principal, r is the rate of interest compounded yearly and n is the number of years3.When the interest rates for the successive fixed periods are r1 %, r2 %, r3 %, ..., then the final amount A is given by A =4.S.I. (simple interest) and C.I. are equal for the first year (or the first term of the interest period) on the same sum and at the same rate.C.I. of 2nd year (or the second term of the interest period) is more than the C.I. of Ist year (or the first term of the interest period), and C.I. of 2nd year -C.I. of Ist year = S.I. on the interest of the first year.

Due to back to Back Interviews I cudn't contribute much to this thread - Will join the league now....

Hope I am not late !

Dude there are numerous tricks and shortcuts - Here are something useful :

Vedic Maths Tricks, Puzzles, Maths Tricks, Brain Teasers, Interesting Riddles

Sometimes we might have to use the traditional approach just to reduce the complexity of Calculation and arriving the right answer...

So my opinion will be , do not worry about those shortcuts - Adopt those with which U are comfortable with and move on ...

Do not try to adopt shortcut for each and evry calculations which U are not comfortable with , coz that will lead to in accuracy and complex calculations...

I realised the fact that sometimes shortcuts are actually long cut approach so , adopt a method which is comfortable to U . Ultimate aim is to answer more number of questions with a good accuracy ...

So to it that Shortcuts doesn't spoil it...

Here is the link for a vedic maths book which I posted long back in 2009 :

http://www.pagalguy.com/forum/prep-resources/34373-cat-preparation-download-material-no-5.html#post1590759

There r some neat shortcuts for solving mathematical problems and I will Post all those in my next Post...

For the time being , U can go thru this google book -

The Pearson Guide to Quantitative ... - Google Books

This is a problem which is a nightmare for many aspirants ( Including me ) coz it involves lengthy calculations , however we must learn how to minimise these steps for faster and quicker approach...

Here is a link to learn those shortcuts :

Short Method for Input Output Problems BANK EXAMS BANK JOBS

For Input OutPut Questions the best thing to do is to practice from recent papers and MOCK CET Papers

Recent Papers :

Pratiyogita Kiran: Bank PO Exam

MOCK CET Papers :
