In my view 8-9 months preparation is good enough for SBI PO. After 9 months preparation you should be clear about most of the topics covering entire syllabus of SBI PO Exam. However, preparation for competition exams is a continuous process and your objective should be to continue regular preparation till you get the final selection.
Apart from reading these books, candidates should also regularly read one newspaper such as The Hindu, The Times of India, The Indian Express etc along with one financial newspaper such as Economic Times. You should note down important news and points in a register on a regular basis.
The reading should be focused on developments in India and the World regarding the banking and finance sector. While reading also note down difficult words and build your vocabulary.
Also go through NCERT books of 8th and 10th standard on all these subjects and go through the relevant syllabus.
You should also regularly read monthly magazines such as Banking Services Chronicle, Pratiyogita Darpan, Competition Success Review etc. You need to regular practice by doing practice sets as well as previous year papers given in these monthly magazines. Banking Services Chronicle is the best monthly magazine for preparation of Bank PO.
Initially your focus should be to learn all the concepts and also practice of the questions after learning the concepts. SBI PO is a difficult exam so you should prepare all sections of pre as well as main exam simultaneously. Every day you should divide your day in such a manner that you can touch all the sections.
Speed and accuracy are very important to get success in the exam. The higher the marks you get in the main exam the better your chances will be to qualify the exam.
