Helpful book

Last night I solved the physics exercise, It have some errors.
Otherwise the attempt to cover all aspect in a concise fashion is appreciable, but not adequate.
One can purchase this book if practice is desired. But, as per content this book has few topic missing.

TMH did it again !!

The book was fantastic. As everyone said, economics is not upto the mark considering level of UPSC. However, it does give you a broad understanding of many topics. All the reference to CBSE Textbooks & other standard books are unnecessary with this books.

It covers most of the topics from what I've understood. The depth is not much because the publishers want to cover every topic in a single book in broad strokes.

We've to extra standard books for indepth understanding of a topic.

This book is for beginners. It covers all the topics in broad strokes & give you fair idea of weightage of each topic in past question papers of UPSC & point us in the right direction for refrence.

GOOD BOOK BUT NOT FOR ALL TOPICS

Its a good book but regarding Economy section it is not reliable. Remaining all Great especially in General Sciences section it is so good. I refer for UPSC IAS exam point of view. You can get the economics material out side so you can buy this book. Even the second paper book is also good. Thank u flipkart for early supply.
