RBI Grade B Free Books Phase 1 & Phase 2

by Anuj jindal Online Education Consultancy

RBI Grade B Books and Study Material for Phase 1:

1. General Awareness (helpful in all the 3 stages):

  • Spotlight Monthly Magazine: Best source to cover Current affair
  • Lucent’s General Knowledge Book (by Dr. Binay Karna and others) for Static Part – Best General Awareness book for RBI Grade B
  • The Hindu/Livemint/Business standard/ Indian Express – Online Blogs & newspapers for current affairs
  • PIB 247

2. Quantitative Aptitude, Reasoning & English

  • Quant, Reasoning, English & Past Year Papers Book by Anuj Jindal
  • I have used many CAT & banking books to try and cover the syllabus of the RBI Grade B Exam but none of them worked. There are certain topics that are being asked in both CAT and banking exams but not in RBI.

You must be thinking now, so what let’s leave those extra topics? Well, it’s not that simple. The level of questions in these exams is very different from RBI.

So as listed above, I made a book last year to cover the Phase 1 part of the syllabus. Check out the book below to know more about it.

There are a few other books that I would recommend for English. Since English is a common subject for both Phases, I have listed those books at the end of this section.
