As we are bank employees we get very little time for study, so how to decide which topics to be read, which topics to be skipped?
-As I had told you in my previous blog article that generally paper consists of 60% theoretical & 40% numerical or case studies, so choose the module to be studied in deep so as to clear the paper easily depending upon your personal strength and weakness.
If you observed all the modules, you will realize that Module A and Module C are the most scoring modules.
Do not skip these modules!!!
Module B contains Business Mathematics which many people find difficult to study as the level of mathematics is tough, especially for non-engineering background people. Those who work in the Credit/Loan Department will find that Module D easy as well as interesting.
Module D is most important not only exam point of view but also for your daily work in Credit Department. So do not skip Module D.

IMPORTANT TOPICS FROM EACH MODULE
Module A- Supply and Demand, Money Supply and Inflation, Business Cycles, GDP Concepts, and Union Budget.
No need to read the McMillan Book line by line for this module, short notes will be quite useful for studying this module. Don’t read the stats given in these chapters. In GDP Concepts and Union Budget chapters, numerical are asked which are quite easy provided you know the components and formula.
Important Topic:- ABM FREE SHORT NOTES
Module B-Time Value of Money, Sampling Methods, Simulation, Bond Investment
Don’t go too deep to study this module as mathematical calculations are difficult to understand especially for nonengineering background people. Practice the examples given in McMillan. Those who are not good at math can skip this module and focus more on the remaining modules.
Module C-Development of Human Resources, Human Implications of Organisations, Performance Management, HR & IT
You need to read thoroughly all the topics from this module from McMillan. It is quite easy and theoretical only. Repeatedly read MCQs from N.S. Toor book of this module.
Module D-Overview of Credit Management, Analysis of Financial Statement, Working Capital Finance, Credit Control and Monitoring, Rehabilitation and Recovery.
Read this module from McMillan’s book only. The chapters in this module are no longer as compared to other modules. Practice Numerical from Financial statements and balance sheets.
Overall, you have to study at least three modules in detail so as to achieve the 50 scores. You can choose the modules to study more depending upon your strength. I would suggest that you can keep module B at last, just read formulas from this module, as this module is quite boring, lengthy and hard to understand.
