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.

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....
