Not suited for Mains.

Although the book aims to be a complete manual for the Science and Technology part of the GS Mains paper of UPSC Civil Services. It falls short by quite a distance. One major reason being its superflous material and information that is absolutely of no use to the aspirant. Covering details which are absolutely impertinent to an aspirant reading this from cover to cover is quite laborious and partly a wastage of time. The topics by itself included are of decent quality and quite relevance however the material and its being up-to-the-date is a big issue.

Science & Technology for Civil Services Examinations 1st Edition

for all the serious civil services aspirants
pls ignore this book . it throws at you a lot of junk and jargons which are least important for IAS exam. plus there is a serious question about its authenticity and whether it has been updated on a regular basis. Eg it gives you the details of coal combustion etc in a manner most suitable for scientists . remember UPSC does not expect you to answer like a scientist , a doctor etc you should be a generalist .
next pitfall it seriously ignores NRHM ICDS and other health sectors which are hot favorite.

First to review

Best book for Science and Technologic manual

Hi, I purchased this book last year from market not through flipkart though, as then I wasn't using flipkart services. When I started reading the book, I felt mesmerized and deeply attached to this book. The contents of this book are so concise and properly arrayed that every information looks complete in itself. The topics it uncovers are vast. I recommend it to all who are interested in S&T shall must refer this book. hope you would too enjoy reading it.

When r u going to update it?

What is a S&T book than talks about recent developments and encompasses developments up to year 2008 an being circulated in 2013? I feel like wasting a handful amount of money on just scrap.
The book is sure to give u a feeling of being cheated, though some topics are covered well. Still by and large, the book is not focused, loaded with oldest possible data and talks about outdated topics which have become conventional by now.

Vast coverage ..

The book consists of irrelevant than the relevant information .. !! Expected a lot as it is a product from Tata Mcgrew Hill Publisheres., but not satisfied as expected .. Topics like Defence technology, Nuclear weapons are good but these are very vast and not opted for non-science background students ..!!
