Is 2 months enough for SBI PO Bank exam preparation?
See, SBI PO exam is one of the toughest exam in my opinion as i have personally appeared for it. The problem with these exams is that seat is very limited which makes it tougher to great extent. The level of questions are increasing rapidly. So, i think 2 months is very less time and you will need atleast 4 months and that too if you are willing to put 10-12 hours every day in practicing and solving questions.
Still give your best in 2 months so that even if you fail you will understand which are you need to work.
I hope this helps.
