    Good for starters

    Ordered it on 25th November, received it on 27th morning. I have ordered both Paper- 1 (this one) and Paper- 2 books. I'm still in college and I don't go for coaching or anything and I started preparing recently. So, I thought I should start my journey from this book. It was priced 971 and when i checked two days later, it was priced 1026 (I did get 8% discount though).
    About this book:
    - It is big and tad heavy.
    - Print and paper quality are average but good enough.
    - Simple language.
    - Prac...

    Good Book but not a substitute

    Its a thick book, which gives you a detailed overview of all the topic for the exam. This is not a substitute or a quick guide to success for the Civil Services exam but its a good book to fill the gaps of your NCERT reading. Read it along with the latest NCERT books and it will help you cover the basic syllabus for the exam.

    good..but not enough as solo source..

    Its probably the best manual available..but if you are serious about your preparation you will depend on other books for most topics,especially ncerts.. The positive in buying this book is the endless number of questions available at the end of most chapters..Plus it will be easy to revise close to exam due to good number of tables and all..must buy.. but do not expect full paper 1 information from it..

    A nice book you can rely upon

    After discussion with other aspirants of CSAT I decided to purchase this volume of GS manual and I think I have made the right choice as what I was looking for I got in this book. Obviously going deep in any subject/topic is possible only by searching reference and study material. However for CSAT-I point of view, this is a perfect book. One has not to waste his/her valuable time after searching and collecting study material. It almost covers everything and each topics are explained in exami...

    Good Book

    It's General Science content is crisp and well organised. Also, the questions given at the end of each section are extremely helpful. But the issue is JBH is giving this book at 750/- only ie more than 40% discount. I think Flipkart must review its pricing criteria.
