    Probationary Officer post is best suited for graduates. You need to first understand the structure and pattern of this exam. The exam duration is for 1hr and 45 min. It will be a total of 200 questions which you need to attempt. Do not attempt answers which you are not sure of the answer as there is negative marking. There will be a total of 4 sections. You need to attempt questions in areas like computer awareness, reasoning and numerical ability. There will also be a section in English Language. This sections will not carry marks but you need to qualify in it too. If you qualify in this test then you shall be called for the interview round. You need to clear it too for the final selection. You have the option to appear for this exam in either English or Hindi. Start preparing based on. You could purchase preparation books from the market for this purpose. The books will also have the previous year paper which you must try before appearing for the PO exam.

    Bank PO jobs are excellent career choice for a candidate with a graduation. At present Banking jobs are most preferred by students from all walks of life and education background. As to clear Bank PO entrance exam candidates need to carry out extensive preparation and practice. The exam is really tough to crack as there is high level of competition. For the Syndicate bank exam preparation, candidates need to practice the entire subject in the exam syllabus thoroughly. You can get previous years question papers for this particular bank from different online websites. Another preferred option is to purchase a good reference book or guide which have previous years question papers of different banks and practice with it accordingly. You can otherwise approach a coaching center which train students systematically in order to succeed in the Bank PO exam.

    The Bank PO exams have four section namely- computer awareness, reasoning , numerical ability&English Language. You need to prepare separately for each section.
    For computer awareness you must have basic knowledge about computer system ,software and hardware.
    For english, reasoning and numerical ability you need alot of practice and also you need to know all the shortcut formulas.As in competitive exams time management is very important.I would suggest you to join a good institute for coaching of PO exams.You must also practice previous year question papers.
    You must also read english newspaper daily.For doing well in english section you must have a good stock of words with you.Refer a dictionary akways and also try learning new words everyday.

    From this year Indian Banks Association has launched a Common All India Entrance Test (CET) for recruiting probationary officers.
    20 public sector banks will be participating in this. So from now onwards you need to prepare for only this single exam.
    However focus on your syndicate bank PO exam.

    English , Quantitive aptitude, General awareness, Test of Reasoning/Mental Ability, Computer proficiency.
    There are several books available in the market for bank PO. for Quantitive aptitude you can refer R S Aggrwal.
