(1) Quantitative Aptitude
A simple calculation of the time available can tell you that you need to solve a question in less than one minute. Normally on an average, candidates take more than two minutes for solving a question.
That surely means solving questions at lightning speed. It also means that if one solves questions the way one does in a 10th standard or graduate exam (writing 8 steps to solve a problem after putting down all required formulae), one will need over twice the amount of time that Aptitude tests are willing to extend.
Therefore, it is imperative that you know as many shortcuts as you can. Not just know the shortcuts, but use them extensively so that they become second nature to you.
Accordingly, keeping in mind, the necessity to provide Aptitude Test aspirants with such professional training and the requisite competence, the CSB has developed a unique and value-based training delivery system that not only enhances the students' aptitude and competence but also fine tunes their skills and implants the necessary confidence to help them in their quest to qualify.

(2) Reasoning Ability
  Reasoning plays a pivotal role as it probes the candidate's logical and analytical abilities. The Logical Reasoning questions test the basic intelligence and aptitude of the candidate. The main difference between reasoning and a traditional test is that reasoning tests your inherent capacity to solve problems while a traditional test is a test of your acquired knowledge. The problems may appear in the form of letters, words, patterns, and pictures or in any other form suitable for the purpose. Reasoning is generally not taught as a regular subject in any college or university. That is why majority of students are reluctant or at a loss to comprehend the problems.
  A majority of questions are based on common sense and verbal ability. It is essential to understand the ‘crux’ of the question while solving these questions. Mental alertness, quick and accurate thinking, keen observation and in-depth knowledge of interplay of key words are required to successfully solve a test of reasoning. Questions in the paper can be classified into two types.
  1. Verbal Reasoning 2. Nonverbal Reasoning
