Reasoning Ability is considered one of the toughest sections in various Bank Exams such as SBI PO/ SBI Clerk/ IBPS RRB/ IBPS PO/IBPS Clerk/ RBI Grade B and Insurance Exams, with most of the candidates afraid of the different types of Puzzles asked in the Bank exams, but according to me, it is just a myth that you cannot score good marks in the reasoning section.

Keeping it in mind, here I will be discussing some important tips with respect to Bank Exam Preparation on how to prepare Reasoning for Bank Exams which you can rely on for your Bank Exam Preparation & improve your score.
There are many topics in Reasoning Ability like Alphanumeric Series, Coding-Decoding, Inequality, Syllogism, Blood Relation, and Direction that most of the aspirant first target and solve easily but your preparation should aim to score in the most important topic i.e. Puzzles which will decide your fate in the exam.

Identify Easy, Scoring topics as well as Time-consuming topics:- First of all go through the previous year pre as well as mains exam papers and after analyzing it; divide the whole syllabus into 2 categories accordingly:-

Easy and Scoring topics: Always start the reasoning section with these questions in the exam. These questions are generally easy to solve, require less time and you can solve them with high accuracy.

Time-Consuming topics: Questions in this category are difficult than above and may require more time to solve. Attempt them after solving easy questions. Some of the questions in this category are tricky. The time to solve them will depend on the amount of practice you have done before the exam. Topics that fall under this category are Puzzles (all types), Data Sufficiency, Machine Input-Output, High-level Coding-Decoding, etc.

Develop a habit of making proper notes:- Always maintain a proper notebook were you right all the important shortcut tricks and concepts related to each topic which will help you a lot when you revise just before the exam.

Don’t leave any topic unprepared:- If you don’t understand any topic or find it difficult to solve, focus on mastering that topic by practicing more before moving on to the next topic. Continue working with that one until you understand it completely and can solve problems on it.

Immediately leave the puzzle set if you are stuck:- If after giving 3-4 minutes you are not able to progress on any puzzle set or you are confused; immediately leave it there and move on to another question.

There are many mistakes committed by aspirants while attempting the reasoning ability section in Bank exams. Let us have a look at some of the common mistakes to avoid in Bank Exams:

Not reading questions completely: In the reasoning section especially in Puzzles, this is the most common mistake made by students. In a hurry to solve the puzzle set, you don’t read the information given in the questions clearly and end up making mistakes. This habit can cause frustration as even after giving the time, you couldn’t solve the questions. Hence, read the question twice before you go ahead and start solving.

Neglecting any topic: You should not avoid practicing any topic as there are chances that the questions asked from that topic were of easy level and because you did not practice them, you have to avoid solving it.
