    Not suited for Mains.

    Although the book aims to be a complete manual for the Science and Technology part of the GS Mains paper of UPSC Civil Services. It falls short by quite a distance. One major reason being its superflous material and information that is absolutely of no use to the aspirant. Covering details which are absolutely impertinent to an aspirant reading this from cover to cover is quite laborious and partly a wastage of time. The topics by itself included are of decent quality and quite relevance howe...

    Vast coverage ..

    The book consists of irrelevant than the relevant information .. !! Expected a lot as it is a product from Tata Mcgrew Hill Publisheres., but not satisfied as expected .. Topics like Defence technology, Nuclear weapons are good but these are very vast and not opted for non-science background students ..!!

    When r u going to update it?

    What is a S&T book than talks about recent developments and encompasses developments up to year 2008 an being circulated in 2013? I feel like wasting a handful amount of money on just scrap.
    The book is sure to give u a feeling of being cheated, though some topics are covered well. Still by and large, the book is not focused, loaded with oldest possible data and talks about outdated topics which have become conventional by now.

    Faced minor issues

    The contents and chapter of the book is very lengthy. If you are preparing for a Civil Services Exam going for IAS coaching center's book will be better if you have limited time in hand, other wise you could have a detailed study of this book which is better for gathering conpectual knowledge. The language of the book is easy and understandable to a general student.
