    Great Book for prepration

    In simple words.. book delivers what it promises..
    If preparing for CSAT.. Previous year Papers are surely helpful..
    Great Book for a crash preparation for CSAT
    I am looking forward to but other books from Disha Publications for same reason. The "Crack Civil Services Prelims paper 1" and "Crack Civil Services Prelims paper 2"
    The 3 books sounds like great package to be able to clear the Exam..

    Worthless book

    This is an extremely wothless book and a total waste of time. Wrong answers and unsolicited and irresponsible behaviour of the writer. The publisher/writer has just the motto of earning money and nothing else. Plz don't buy this book.

    Very Good Book

    If you're looking for the best book in this price then this is for you.
    All the papers from 18 years have been segregated in different part this has made this book very apprehensible. You can browse through the sections of subjects as you want.
    if you want to read history of the previous years then directly go to the history section.
    as so on.
    Total Value for Money....

    a gud book to know the pattern of papers.

    Its a gud buy if you want to know about the pattern of the papers over years. the gud thing abt it is that the questions are given topic wise and explanations are gud too. It makes our job easier to grasp the pattern and kind of questions that are asked.
