Good practice book

I found this book after a lot of searching, and I was not disappointed by it. The answers to certain questions may change over time. But, a student preparing for the civil services is always aware of such issues. That said, this book is great practice material. Definitely recommended...

BE CAREFUL- iTS NOT FOR BEGINNERS

This book is only for serious student not for beginners. Bcoz many ans are wrong according to change in law, regulation, daily gk, etc.

Dont buy this book

some of the answers and also the explanation are wrong. if u want to take risk then only go for this book.
eg:
pg no- c 20 Judiciary and right issues:-
It is given that the expenses of officers and servants of high court is charged to consolidated fund of india...... but it is charged to the consolidated fund of state

Great Book for a crash preparation for CSAT
I am looking forward to but other books from Disha Publications for same reason. The "Crack Civil Services Prelims paper 1" and "Crack Civil Services Prelims paper 2"
The 3 books sounds like great package to be able to clear the Exam..

IAS Prelims/CSAT Civil Services: 18 Years General Studies Topic-Wise Solved Papers (1995-2012)

NOT A GOOD BOOK FOR ASPIRANTS.in THIS BOOK TOPIC WISE SIMPLY MEANS ANCIENT INDIA,MEDIEVAL INDIA .MODERN INDIA ......BUT IN REALITY WHAT TOPIC WISE MEANS ...SPLITing A BIG TOPIC INTO NUMEROUS MICRO UNITS .EG. modern india into advent of english.peshwas..later mughals..autonomous states..1857 revolt..early nationalism...early congress...gandhian era...revolutionaries and so on...in my point of view this is not useful

Worthless book

This 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.

Very Good Book

If you're looking for the best book in this price then this is for you.
All the papers from 18 years have been segregated in different part this has made this book very apprehensible. You can browse through the sections of subjects as you want.
if you want to read history of the previous years then directly go to the history section.
as so on.
Total Value for Money....

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.
