Worthless bookThis is an extremely wothless book and a total waste of time. Wrong answers and unsolicited and irresponsible behaviour of the writer. The publisher/writer has just the motto of earning money and nothing else. Plz don't buy this book.

a gud book to know the pattern of papers.Its a gud buy if you want to know about the pattern of the papers over years. the gud thing abt it is that the questions are given topic wise and explanations are gud too. It makes our job easier to grasp the pattern and kind of questions that are asked.
