This reputed exam conducted by RBI witnesses lakhs of aspirants applying each year with a dream to get selected as Grade B officers.  

And so, the aspirants put in their best effort to cover the subjects given in the syllabus. 

But just like how a journey becomes more enjoyable when you have great companions by your side.   

Similiarly, in this case, your greatest companion to simplify your exam preparation comes in form of a reliable booklist. Well, why do I say so?

Referring to a good booklist for the exam will not just assist you in covering the syllabus but also help you get a comprehensive understanding of the topics within much less time.  

To help you access the reliable books that you can study from, I will be discussing the recommended booklist for RBI Grade B exam.  

Now, what is the next important step that aspirants must take after covering considerable portion of the syllabus? 

The answer to the question lies in doing practice. One of the most efficient ways to assess your preparation is by solving mock tests. 

That is because practicing these tests will familiarize you with the exam pattern, difficulty level of the questions and most importantly give you an idea of whether you are heading direction with your preparation. 

With that being said, along with the books I shall also be discussing all that is there to know about RBI Grade B mock tests to help you enhance your preparation. 

So, what are we waiting for? Let’s get started. 

Table of Content – RBI Grade B Books & Mock Tests 2024

RBI Grade B Books 2024

The selection of right books is the most essential step in the preparation for RBI Grade B exam.  

Since the syllabus of the exam contains different subjects, and so the books recommended for each subject are different.  

You see, having been an aspirant once, I understand while selecting reliable books is important, yet it can be a time- consuming process.  

To help you save a lot of your precious time, I have mentioned a detailed list of books that will you in comprehensive coverage of different subjects.  

But before that, if you haven’t gone through the syllabus yet, I would recommend you to check the latest RBI Grade B syllabus & exam pattern. 

Coming back to the topic, I have provided recommended booklist for both Phase I and Phase exam for RBI Grade B 2024. 

Since the booklist is extensive, you need not read them from cover to cover. In the video given below, I have mentioned the key topics that need to be covered from those books. 

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/Scroll.in/The 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.
