Hello friends, I am Aparna from Andhra Pradesh. An employee of the State Bank of India (selected in SBI Clerks 2016 recruitment). After reading my success story in Gr8AmbitionZ, many SBI Clerk 2018 aspirants have been asking me to suggest the books for their preparation. So here I am sharing the list of important and useful books for SBI Clerks 2018 Preliminary and Main Examinations which I followed during my preparation. I am also giving the links to buy these books online so that you can buy the latest editions in lesser price.

Important Books for SBI Clerks 2018

Books for Numerical Ability / Quantitative Aptitude :

  • Magical Book on Quicker Maths by M Tyra 
    • Reason for buying this Book : This book is helpful to learn new short tricks if you are preparing your self )

  • Quantitative Aptitude For Competitive Examinations by RS Aggrawal
    • Reason for buying this book : This has been a standard book for quantitative aptitude from many years. This book consists of a number of practice problems with detailed explanations. The problem with this book is, this book follows traditional approach and it doesn't focus on shortcut methods. Still I highly recommend this book for clearing basics of each topic.

  • Fast Track Objective Arithmetic by Rajesh Verma (Arihant) Latest Edition 2018
    • Reason for buying this Book : This Book also consists lots of shortcut techniques for each topic, but you can't start your preparation with this book because the intro parts of the topics are not good. So you should buy this book after clearing the basic concepts.

    • Reason for buying this Book : Good book for a quick review of the current affairs and updated standard GK of the year 2017. Has some good info about GST and State wise GK in simple English. The only problem with this book is it has more than enough information which is not required for SBI Bank clerk exam.

For Standard Banking Awareness
  • Banking Awareness (by Arihant) 
    • Reason for buying this Book : Covers standard banking awareness topics. But keep in mind, you can't completely rely on this book because most of the questions comes from the recent banking updates. For which Gr8AmbitionZ materials and monthly pdf files are more than enough.

Books for Computer Knowledge:

  • Computer Literacy And Knowledge for Bank PO and Bank Clerk Exam by Kiran Prakashan

Note : There is no compulsion to buy new books. If you have any good sources, you can refer to older versions too (except GK and Banking Awareness Books). But if you can afford then go for the latest revised versions, which obviously contain more exam accurate with less mistakes. Also check for the date of printing if you are ordering online. Return it immediately if you receive editions prior to 2015.
