How to Prepare:
Gone are the days when merely one book R.S Aggarwal used to be sufficient for the preparation of the whole of the aptitude section but now a days a level of question and type of question has been changed and one really need to burn midnight oil to crack this exam.
For aptitude section one can rely upon the Kiran parkashn booklist. Plateform and Arun Sharma aptitude book. For English section S.P Bakshi is really Good book. For reasoning section R. S aggarwal is more than sufficient and after all the general awareness section which is not really a cup of tea need to be given more attention as that is the only section which really make a difference between candidates.
These are some of the book list which could be followed but making list or merely to purchase these book is not sufficient. In the era of cut throat competition one really need to put efforts for getting success in the exam and every year no of aspirants are increasing exponentially.
After the result of the written exam is declared by the ssc , candidates are called for the skill Test in the respective zone of them . The skill test is merely qualifying in nature and one must type the given passage within the stipulated time limit without exceeding the error percentage.
The Typing speed required is 35 w.p.m both in Hindi and English with a error percentage up to 5 for Unreserved candidate with a relaxation for the category candidates
Now the time is moving fast and exam dates are near so guys keep preparing and practice well and all the best.
