    Best book IMO for paper 2 of the Preliminary exam

    After going through all the sections given in the book, I can say that this book does justice to every topic prescribed in the syllabus given by UPSC for CSAT, be it Logical Reasoning & Analytical Ability, or Comprehension. I would also like to add that the comprehension passages you'll come across in this book are very close to the standard and type of passages that were asked in the CSAT exams conducted in 2011 and 2012. And mind you, this is not the case with so many other books available ...

    a must have!

    Both presentation and content are worth appreciation!
    Covers the entire gamut of questions which may be expected.
    in basic numeracy, only alligations are missing..
    tricks in general mental ability especially cubes and dices are wonderful!

    Book with full of mistakes in every topic, lots of misprinting, wrong solutions and answers. you will spend more time in rectifying book than studying it. it doesn't even tough the standard of i.a.s. prelims.
    plz don't purchase it.
    suggestion for arihant publication is to re-print it after properly analyzing it.
