General Studies for Civil Services Preliminary Examination 2013 (Paper - 1) (English) 1st Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs. 938

General Studies For Civil Services Preliminary Examination 2013 (Paper-1) is a handy book for those who are seeking to do well in the preliminary examination for civil services.

Summary Of The Book

CSAT (Civil Services Aptitude Test) is a preliminary examination carried out to determine the analytical understanding of an individual, rather than their memorizing capabilities. The new pattern of this examination, which has been implemented from 2011 onward, consists of two papers that are of 200 marks each, and their duration is two hours. These examinations are composed of multiple-choice questions only.
General Studies For Civil Services Preliminary Examination 2013 (Paper-1) has been revised keeping in mind the numerous changes that have been made in the pattern of the question paper for such exams. The team of authors for this book comprises fourteen people who are experts in this field. Statement-based questions have been included in each section, as per the new paper pattern.

In total, there are nine chapters in this book, each of which covers highly important topics for this examination. The chapters include General Science, Current Events, Indian And World Geography, Indian National Movement, History Of India, Economic And Social Development, Indian Polity And Governance, General Knowledge, Indian And World Geography, and Environmental Ecology.

The General Knowledge and Current Events section has also been updated right till August, and includes details about the London Olympics. The Indian Polity and Governance section has also been duly updated, and so has the Economic and Social Development section. The General Science section in this book lays emphasis on application-oriented questions. At the end of this book, the readers are also provided with practice question papers, which are prepared in accordance with the layout of this examination. Additionally, readers are also given previous question papers of the past 5 years, from 2008 to 2013. This book also contains explanatory notes.

The book has been published for the past 28 years and it is a guide that will help all aspirants writing the Civil Services Exam.

Not sufficent!!

I purchased this book as it is suggested by many online forums and website but personally I feel many of its sections are made unnecessarily concise and in course of doing so many relevant information is left uncovered. Specially in History section many important events like attack of Mohmd Gori, He… (View complete review)

a Book is a Book.

Books are not the thing to be compared, and if one has to prepare for UPSC than this would be the one of the best books available in the store.

unable to outsmart upsc

this book is being published after two yearsof introduction of csat.still continuing with those types of questions which are crammer friendly oranswerable by laymans.even of the preactice sets are not upto the levels of upsc.they they were not proportionated.it only may serveas something better than nothing.someone serious to crack civil services must not confine himself/herselfto it rather than making diverse readings such as study of epw,the hindu,frontline,iucn list,ncert books and what ever they consider useful.even watching of programmes like vikash chakra,wildreness days on dd-1 willbe u

I wish no star could be given...

This book is good for nothing.... Forget clearing UPSC by studying this book... Stupid questions... Moreover, It's waste of a lot of money of you... and space also... :-P. Just follow NCERTs and some standard texts like Laxmikanth for Polity, NCERTs and Grover and Mehta for history....

The best hand book for civil services aspirants

Let me start with the GK and CA portion.
The traditional GK part has been neatly arranged.
In CA, the national and international events, economic developments etc covers all the necessary information and doesn't include any useless information at all.

History and INM , Geography and Sciences are wonderfully written. I strongly believe that there should not be any need to go through the NCERT books after this.

And, the question analysis part in the beginning is really helpful.

Last but not the least , I must thank Flipkart for their excellent service. I got this one in just 2 days time.

a grand picnic with no salt

as this book is coming out with a mission of serving civil aspirant,at first the team of authors must ensure whether they are able to cler the exam.though they have providedextensive study materials,but lack of updatation andproper focus ,this is of no use. what lacks in it is thesub standard practice set,because it has asked aquestion that who is the author of mamata banerjees political biography?do you think that in the new pattern of csat ,question of such factual type is possible?. iappeal to the tmh please ask the authors to update them selves before serving the old wine in a new bott

It is the best!

I bought this book when I had just started studying for upsc and I didnt know of any other books except ncert.

Strong subjects: history (except history beyond 1857 which is a international interpretation of indian history, so I recommend you stick to something indian on that front), Geography, and Best for Ecology and Science.

Weak one's: polity (cant beat laxmikanth), economics(finds no mention, better read class 12 macro economics text book)

The book is loaded with information. Atleast for the subjects I mentioned as strong, you wouldnt need to look outside! every line is important althou

MUST HAVE BOOK FOR YOUR PREPARATION

"Bible of Preparation"

This books leads to all the important syllabus coverage. It won't allow you to travel in a wrong way of preparation. Though if you do not study the content from GS Manual you need to have this book aside for your strategy to work in a better way.

The service of flipkart is outstanding.

Content

Definitely Content of the book is awesome & really really helpful for the aspirants of the Civil Services. Each & every aspect regarding the subject has been thoroughly described which is very useful in the exam point of view.

But the policy of flipkart.com seems very vague regarding pricing of the book.
