Shortcut to find cube root

some times in quantitative aptitude test finding out cube root can turn in to massive headache , normally the question will be about finding square root of integers and six digits. This technique wont work with numbers more than six digits or which is not a perfect cube. This can really save some time for you.

Ok first lets take an example, say , 117649

The answer is 49, lets see how to find it in less than 20 seconds. To solve this you should know cube root of first ten numbers.

N0 Cube
1 1
2 8
3 27
4 64
5 125
6 216
7 343
8 512
9 729
10 1000

ok, now lets start,

Step 1:  in the above table we can see the cube root of first 10 numbers, The question is to find the cube root of 117649

first divide the above number in to two, Start with the last three numbers, it will be your first half and the remaining number will be your other half, see the example below.

117 | 649

Step 2: now , consider the second part (i,e) 117 , see where it lies in the above table, in the above table it lies between 4 and 5, now we have to take the lowest number of  these two (i,e) 4

Step 3: now, consider the first part 649 , the three digit number ends with 9, in the above table we can see that cube root of 9 gives a answer that ends with 9 , therefore 9 is the second answer

combining step 2 and 3 we get 49, which is the final answer

Thats it,

They are wrong, Bank exams these days are getting tougher and tougher as the competition in this field is getting more every day. Many authors are evolving every day, most of them comes out with a better method to solve certain questions.

Collect Previous Year Question Papers:
Internet is a wide source of information but as far as previous year question papers it is low. find few question papers in the internet and also buy some books containing previous year question papers. this will help you to know question pattern and blueprints.People who set bank question papers wont change these blue prints at least for a year, so your chance of getting pass is more.

Knowledge of banking terms and activities:
A  Knowledge in banking terms and their activities will help you in success.Learn a lot about Reserve bank of India, about their acts , policies, committee etc, do the same for SEBI . Make note of authors and their books in that year as far as general knowledge is concern, then know about important people arriving india and also about summits[where&when] .

Leave doubtful questions:
Dont try to attend doubtful questions , because it will extract more time, You should not afford to spend more than 1 to 1.5 minutes for a question. Work out easy questions first, and leave the doubtful ones later, some times you may get time to think clearly at the end.

Donts for Playboys/naughties :
Don’t get yourself in any unpleasant situation, do not use any unfair things like carrying formulas in a paper or in handouts are asking help from others, this is not your school exams , this is your life you may get banned to write bank exams for ever at least for that organization, Thats a black mark. Lot of good looking girls/boys will come to write exam ,dont scatter your mind, You need them in one place to go through these exams.

So i have written everything i know, its all upto you to get pass are not. Please Do remember three thing  practice, practice,practice.

Reduce negative marks in Bank exam

It is one of the major concern for all the people who write bank exams from A-Z, either it is the first time or 26th time you write the bank exam negative marks will come up easily unless you concentrate well on the following things. Normally negative marks range from 0.25 and rarely ends with 0.50 , which depends on the mark that question carries.

I hate negative marks
Ok let us see what we can do to minimize negative marks ?

# First of all, You should know what type questions will be asked in that particular exam, for that you should go through previous question papers, because these guys who are setting the paper has the mentality of using the same blueprint/pattern.This will help you knowing what type of questions will be asked in each section.With that knowledge you can prepare well and also you can plan how much time you are going to spend for each section.

# As the legend says "Practice makes a man perfect" practice and only practice will decide either you win or lose the exam. There are various sites and books that can teach you short cut methods for each problem. get previous year question papers from internet or from the book called Pratiyogita Darpan [i recommend ] and write a mock test in your home and set the stop watch to 115-120 . Learning short cuts will help you in getting answers right and in short time, helping you both in time management and error management.

# Write each and every formulas you see in a notepad or a paper, carry it to the exam center and carefully go through before you enter the exam hall because revising can help you to access formulas quickly from your brain.

# If you find General awareness and  socio-economic questions are tough enough, you can write them in a notepad or paper as per month or year, which will help you in last minute revising .

# Stay calm when you dont know a question or more than a question, Go for the others.If you are confident that you can solve it, then go for it else leave the unknown questions for later,because you may get stuck with it , so leave it for later which will save you some time and also some marks. Don't guess any answer, the probability of getting correct is less.

Please keep these things in your mind, It will help you for sure.

Job Nature of clerk in a bank

Behind the scenes in a bank, many people work to help keep things running smoothly. As a Bank Clerk, you would be one of these important people.

Careful records must be kept for every action carried out within the bank, from a cheque being cashed to a loan being taken out. Your role as a Bank Clerk means you're responsible for maintaining these records, depending on your specialist field.

As a Bank Clerk, you could be separated into one of the following:

Interest Clerk: recording interest owed to saving accounts customers and interest owed to the bank from loans and other investments.

Loan Clerk: recording and organising loan information.

Statement Clerk: preparing the monthly balance sheets of checking account customers.

Exchange Clerks: working on international accounts, translating foreign currency into Pounds Sterling and vice versa.

Security Clerk: recording, filing and looking after stocks, bonds and other investment documents.
Bookkeeping Clerk: taking care of records for each customer's account.

There are various other clerical roles you could be involved in as a Bank Clerk to help keep the bank in order. Just like any other business, banks need help with general tasks, such as data entry, filing, mail handlers, and messengers.

Hours and environment
Generally, you'll be working between 35 and 40 hours a week as a Bank Clerk. Depending on the bank and its hours, you could be expected to work some evening and weekend shifts too.

Banks maintain a pleasant working atmosphere, though to help concentration as a Bank Clerk you would often be working alone.

Skills and interests
To be a good Bank Clerk, you must have:

  • the ability to work neatly and accurately
  • good written and verbal communication skills
  • good numeracy and calculation skills
  • good IT skills and computer literacy
  • an honest and trustworthy nature
  • a good attention to detail entry

To become a Bank Clerk, you'll usually need to give evidence of a good educational background. This would need to emphasise basic skills in typing, bookkeeping, and business maths. Knowledge of computers and business machines would also be helpful. During the interview process, you might be tested on your clerical skills.

Most training is done on-the-job. You can work towards NVQs/SVQs in Customer Service at levels 2 and 3, and Providing Financial Services at levels 2, 3 and 4.

The Diploma in Financial Services Management (DFSM) is a foundation-level qualification for those aspiring to supervisory management positions. It is offered by the Institute of Financial Services (ifs) - a subsidiary of the Chartered Institute of Bankers (CIB) - and by the Chartered Institute of Bankers in Scotland (CIOBS).

If you wish to develop your career beyond the diploma, you may follow the CIB/CIOBS Associateship course, which can be undertaken by either block release or distance learning. On completion, if you are a student in England and Wales, you're also awarded a BSc (Hons) in Financial Services from University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST).

Foundation and Advanced Modern Apprenticeships (MAPPs) may be available for people aged 16-24..

Banks generally prefer to promote employees, rather than hire new workers for jobs that require experience. As a Bank Clerk, you could move to a cashier or supervisor role.

A good knowledge of data processing and computers will provide you with the best opportunities for promotion, as well as a demonstration of your skills. In addition, at a clerical level you could often move up to positions of greater responsibility or move into a more specialised field.

Annual income
Your salary would vary based on your experience and the area you work within. A typical starting salary would range between £15,000 and £20,000. With more experience you could earn between £22,000 and £30,000.
