  1. For Paper-1 Tata Mc Graw Hill, eventhough standard books need to studies before you go for the mannual. For Paper-II Cracking the CSAT by Arihanth is enough Sent from my WP 7 Lumia 920 using Tapatalk
  2. Modern Indian history from about the middle of the eighteenth century until the present; Significant events, personalities, issues · The Freedom Struggle - its various stages and important contributors /contributions from different parts of the country. · Post-independence consolidation and reorganization within the country. After going through the syllabus and doing a bit of Google search I found the below books that cover the new syllabus. 1. India Struggle for independence-Bipin Chandra 2. A brief history of Modern India-Spectrum 3. Freedom Fighters - Spectrum 4. From Plassey to Partition - Shekar Banopadhya 5. A new look of Modern Indian History- Grover & Mehta 6. India after Gandhi - Ramachandra Guha Pls post ur opinions on which book are most relevant for both prelims and mains. WP 7 Lumia 920 using Tapatalk
  3. Ya, I saw it on PIB site Press Information Bureau English Releases Still there is 2 months for CSE notification. I think the changes are gonna happen this time i.e 2013.
  4. Hi everyone AFTER having a look at the analysis made by mrunal on the CSAT GS Papesr 2011 and 2012, I think we can skip the entire the ancient and medieval Indian History. Instead we need to focus right from the "mid 18th century" or from the "Decline of Mughal empire" and a good book for Indian culture. I think that wud suffice.
  5. Hi Everyone Whats yout opinion abt the Civil Services Mentor. I thought it is similar very much similar to CSC and also quite handy in making notes as it wud be easy to copy and paste the points that relevant.
  6. Hi everyone Do we need to submit any undertaking or approval from our present employer if we are appearing for mains of interview of Civil Services. Thanks in Advance.

  10. Hi

    Welcome to IO.
  11. Hi

    Welcome to IO and All the Best for your prep.
  12. No Prbs. As a I read here on IO, Well begun is Half done. So a good start is better than a head start. All the best.
  13. Hi Sandeep, Pleaurse is mine in welcoming you. I am preparing for CSE-2013, ofcourse applied for prelims this year. Will give the attempt if I am confident by then. Started out my prep with Indian Polity. As of now I am reading DD Basu. Simultaneously preparing for premils, with TMH guide for paper-I. Hw abt U??
  14. [MENTION=1148]VIJAY[/MENTION], I am also having the same problem, Even if I can make myself a 5 hrs available for preparation, I am unable to read anything, due to tiredness or work tension. Its not the long durations that we need to allot but the qualitative use of the time available for us that counts, I guess. And thats the hard part.
  15. Wow, the new look of IO is extremely gud on mobiles. Very convienient. Butone thing is I am unable to view the notifications in mobile view
