Worst

I bought this book in the faith of TMH. This is the worst book I have ever seen, topics are not fully covered. Writer says one stop reference, I believe that is completely wrong. This is not even to refer any time for any exam.

not useful

I did not have better source for s & t preparation. Since studying ncert would require lot of time i bought this book. But it turned out to be total disaster. A non sense book from civil preparation point of view. I would rather recommend studying ncert for basics and recent s & t developments from newspaper for preparation.
