    Best available book.

    If I am asked to describe it in a word, the word will be The Bible. It is the best book to practice for CSAT. It contains the best techniques and is the most indispensable book available in the market. Passages in the book are beautifully arranged for the CSE. It contains mostly important pieces of GK information relevant for CSE. QA section is explained in full. It contains almost every pattern of questions possible to ask. Best part is that it has all the relevant questions asked from 1995 ...

    Amazing book

    I should comment about the quality of the sections especially interpersonal skills, decision making and the section on actual GS questions on Maths and Reasoning. the treatment is authoritative, interpersonal skills needs a psychologist's perspective which is the plus point of this book.
    This is a well written book and offers an excellent choice for students looking out for quality content for their preparation.
    A must buy !

    Won't help you much with your preparation in CSAT

    Price is bit too high.
    Does not contain any practice sets for CSAT, which is very important for PAPER-2.
    If you want to get rough idea about CSAT go for it.
    But if you want to crack it. Please don't go for it.
