IBPS Data Interpretation & Maths: Internal breakup
Topicwise Breakup IBPS CWE PO/MT  2011  2012

BODMAS/Simplification  10  10 
number sequenceseries(although reasoning topic but asked here)  5  5

Obviously high priority = DI + BODMAS + Sequenceseries.
And, Although not many questions are coming from the individual topics of percentages, profit loss, simplecompound interest, Timespeedword, ratio, averages etc. but collectively, these topics help you raise your score by atleast 10 marks. Hence their Cost:Benefit is quite good. (compared to the amount of data you’ve to memorize to get 10 marks out of Misc.GK/Sports/Persons in News type MCQs.) Therefore, donot run away from Maths, prepare it diligently.
Ignore following topics
 Quadratic equations (ax^{2}+bx+c=0)
 Geometry theory (except areavolumeperimeter)
 Trigonometry
 Coordinate Geometry
 logarithm
Speed Maths
In Both previous years, at least 25 out of 30 questions came from Data interpretation+ BODMAS only
for both ^these topics, speed Maths=essential. Although internet is full of techniques of Speed Maths, Vedic Maths, but you must atleast master following techniques:
 Trachtenberg’s Techniques for:
 Multiplication by 5. It also indirectly helps you find out half (50%)of the given number as well. Because “m”x5= 10m/2. This helps you eliminate wrong answers quickly whenever you’ve find percentages.
 Multiplication by 9. It indirectly helps you guestimate the division by 11 as well. Because m/11=~0.9m
 Quick multiplication by 11. It indirectly helps you guestimate the number division by 9 as well. Because m/9=~0.11m
here is the wiki link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trachtenberg_system
 Two digit division / long division / percentages approximation explained on
 Divisibility rules for various numbers (Given in NCERT, Quantitative aptitude books)
 Multiplication tables of 2 to 9, 12 to 25 must be learned by heart. Especially the tables of 13, 17, 19 and 23.
 Squares upto 29 and cubes upto 12 (required for the sequenceseries questions and BODMAS)
 After that, as per your time and mood, learn the Vedic math techniques for finding cuberoots, squareroots of large numbers; threedigit multiplication etc.etc.etc.

Any one book on Maths/Quantitative Aptitude 

#1: Data Interpretation (DI)
Can be of two types
DI  with photo (Chart)  without photo 

Example 


Essential Skill 

Additionsubtraction. (although sometimes will require %, ratio, division as well.) 
How is Bank DI different from other exams?
 In SSC CGL, LIC, State PCS exams, usually chart based simple case. Doesn’t involve lengthy calculations.
 In IBPS/Bank PO, even if chartbased DI is asked, often you’ll be given an additional table showing ratio/sales etc. So you’ve to utilize the information from both chart + table to derive the answers.
How to approach?
