Description and Course Structure
Being one of the most important topics for SSC and Banking exams, Reasoning carries a heavy weightage in such examinations and hence, an aspirant should only go for the best mode of preparation for this subject. The faculty is an experienced teacher and clearly demarcates the importance of every topic and sub-chapter in terms of the exam structure.
The course covers all topics and sub-topics for Verbal Reasoning. All chapters are discussed in depth and with a pace which is conducive to enhanced learning and retention of concepts. Interestingly, each chapter, divided into two or more videos, proceeds such that the student is compelled to revise the topics discussed earlier in order to better understand the new concepts.
As entailed further, this module deals with the initial chapters of Verbal Reasoning, which are:
1. Alpha-numeric Series
2. Coding and Decoding
This is an exhaustive and extensive module designed to completely educate a beginner as well as an experienced aspirant who wishes to improve his/her Reasoning skills. The module runs for 10 hours roughly, over the video lectures and students can effectively complete it in a week, along with the practice exercises.
Why this course
(a) The module is exhaustive and does not leave any chapter or any concept of an underlying topic uncovered; the student shall definitely come out with a complete and better knowledge of the course.
(b) The faculty has an experience of 10 years as a subject expert and hence, he is in complete knowledge of the kinds of questions that any student may have. The video lectures have the nature of a live classroom where students find all their questions answered as it comes to their mind.
(c) Reasoning carries a significant portion of the question paper for SSC, Banking and Railways examinations and this module discusses every topic and exceptional, rare questions in detail in order to thoroughly prepare the student for this subject.
In this first lecture for the module, the number-letter-symbol combination is used as the question format as Mr Pandey moves from basic to advanced concepts and questions that are relevant to SSC and Banking PO exams. Beginning with smart and useful pointers, he goes on to explain larger concepts which further becomes easier with the examples that he solves on board. Through one long series, he makes an all-inclusive lecture on the alpha-numeric and symbol topic and covers all parts of it.
Mr Pandey begins this second lecture for the Series-type question by explaining the exam pattern for this topic and the amount of time a smart candidate can take to successfully solve this section without spending much time. While taking various examples in the video, the educator teaches how to increase one’s pace and make the most of the exam time since these questions usually riddle the aspirant. To counter them, he solves on-board questions through multiple smart tricks and short-cuts which candidates can easily remember.
This last chapter for Verbal Reasoning, Coding and Decoding, begins by a brief overview of the kind of questions it entails and the concept behind this. The coding-decoding concept involves converting one language to another and reversing the process also. This chapter is crucial from the point of view of an exam aspirant.
This lecture has two types of coding: self and place coding. In self coding, only the sequence of a code is changed and not its letters; the Educator explains through questions how you can logically decode it in a short span of time. For place coding, both letters and the sequence of the code are changed and decoding becomes complex as compared to self coding.
Condition coding is the next topic in this chapter wherein the Educator first begins with coding questions which come with conditions for statements and then chinese or common-word coding. A sure-shot question for IBPS Clerk exams, this topic is thoroughly and completely explained with relevant questions and tricks so that a major question like this can be solved in less than 2 minutes.
In this video, the Educator introduces concepts in order to venture into different types of coding to tackle an advanced coding question, which usually comprises of multiple codes within it. The way to begin solving such questions, as Mr Pandey says so, is trial and error and yet, as he proceeds with the question we see how there is smart work happening to save time. He teaches multiple approaches to deal with the question which students should keep in mind.
Further from the last lecture, the eduactor now extends and details the basics of "Some", "No", "All" and "Some Not". If given statments are positive and the conclusions are negative, then they are ture and vice versa: that is, if given statements are negative and the conclusions are positive, then they are false.
The educator clarifies by going back to the same example and using an alternate method to explain it for better understanding.
Throughout examples and detailed explanations, the educator teaches this complex and one of the most riddling parts of syllogisms, which often troubles students in exams. His highlighted examples are quite important for the topic..
From its basics to the most advanced concepts, this last lecture for Syllogisms requires the students to automatically revise their previous lectures since Reverse Syllogisms uses the same concept as Syllogisms we have studied so far, only the way to answer becomes the mirror opposite now. In this recently added topic, conclusions are provided and the statements which could have led to the given conclusions are to be found. Mr Pandey teaches through the elimination method to be done and teaches how to check the question only through the given options to save time.
Explaining the very concept of inequality, Mr Pandey begins with listing out the possibilities between 2 or more people, in terms of inequality: greater than (>) , less than (<), equal to (=) and not equal to (=/). He explains these inequalities as questions that appear in exams and solves a number of examples on board.
Extending the discussion on inequalities, we move on to talk about the possibilities of uncertain inequalities, which are used in a question to establish relationships. There are 3 kinds of either/or possibilities which are never confirmed for sure but they are related such that all three come in some context in one way or the other.
The educator begins with the third type of inequality- missing characters/symbols. He defines the topic by giving an example and solving it on board. Establishing the basics of inequality in the last two lectures, in this video the student can apply previously learnt topics and concepts of Inequality to solve the questions involving missing symbols since here the student needs to understand the given inequality in order to fill the blanks with correct symbols/characters.
