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

    • 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.

  • 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.

Return it immediately if you receive editions prior to 2015.
