  6. Hey Friends, I have my IBPS PO exam on 1st Nov, 2014. But, i'm not able to find out the best strategy to tackle reasoning and Quant sections, as in the order in which i should attempt questions in order to save time and have a look at maximum possible questions.

    Can u pls guide me a little as to what could be the best order in both the sections to follow? Also, i actually started prepare for GK only a few days back, so i'm not very good in that area. That's y i'm just using this site's materials and questions to prepare. Will it be enough? Any suggestions are most welcome :)
