Hey Guys, 

I missed the prelims by a few marks like some of you. Any idea how to go about ARD and ESI specifically. Any coaching material that actually helps? Also, On which websites can we attempt more than 10 mocks on NABARD?

No coaching is sufficient. Refer various sources such as vision+affairs cloud+edutap+eco survey+Budget+pib.Try to maximize score in quant+reasoning+English.With practice,one can easily score 65+ out of 80 in these sections.u should give many mocks(oliveboard,edutap) before prelims and frame a strategy before the d day.
