    Description
    The general science covering physics, chemistry, biology, space science, agriculture and animal husbandry, environment, health, computer science, etc is asked in a number of competitive and recruitment examinations today. Those who lack the basic general science knowledge lag behind others in the race to get at the top as general science is considered as an important dimension in most of the competitive examinations like UPSC and state level civil service examinations, SSC, railways and other general competitive and recruitment examinations.

    As the name signifies, the present book is nothing less than an encyclopedia of general science which will act a question bank for general science objective questions. The book has been prepared keeping in mind the importance of the subject. It has been divided into four sections namely physics, chemistry, biology and computer science and IT, each sub-divided into number of chapters. The chapters covered in the book have been formulated on the basis of NCERT science books providing explanation to everyday science phenomena. With a collection of 1000 multiple choice questions, the content covered in the book simplifies the complexities of some of the topics so that the non-science students feel no difficulty while studying general science. The questions provided in the book are in-line with the analysis of previous year's competitive exam's papers which will help the aspirants know the trend of the questions and the difficulty level of the same. Each section in the book also contains appendices, glossary and assessment at the end. The assessment exercise at the end of each section will help aspirants practice the concepts covered in each section and self analyze the level of preparation for upcoming competitive examinations.

    As the book thoroughly covers the general science section asked in a number of competitive examinations, it for sure will work as a preparation booster for various competitive examinations like UPSC and state level civil service examinations, SSC, railways and other general competitive and recruitment examinations.

    Super Awesome for covering the general science

    As its title says Encyclopedia, this book really covers almost every category for the preparation of general science for popular competitive examinations.

    The book is mostly based on NCERT's high school science text books, which are the sources of preparation for any competitive examinations in India. You can say it as 'all-in-one' for general science.

    And last, this book can be strongly relied for multiple choice questions on science, as well as explaining several topics in main exams.
