    There is a lot of bokks which concentrates on general aptitude test and general knowledge. Some of them are as follow,
    R S Agarwal
    S Chand
    Berrons
    Arun Sharma
    But at present RS Agarwal's Books are followed by many of the students.
    But the topics discussed are all some what same. I recommend you to first go through the way of the written language, If it is simple for you to understand then it is apt for you.
    There are many Bank books also which simply gives you the idea of all the topics.
    ALL THE BEST
