In the section on Economic Geography the latest Census data is also included along with other important data relating to tribal and racial groups etc. Indian Polity and Governance Polity plays an important part in the Prelims and you can expect anywhere between questions on it.
In fact all the amendments till the latest one are listed. Although it does not explain the fundamentals of Economy like Stock Market, Banking in detail other topics like Planning, Women Empowerment, Budgeting, Social and Welfare Schemes have been covered well.
Even demographic and social data is included for your reference. I will advise you to supplement this with the Economic Survey of India published by Oxford University Press that contains a wealth of economic data in tabulated form. Good news is that TMH has added a separate section on these 3 topics in the reference manual for Paper 1.
Every topic has been dealt comprehensively and separately under the Physics, Chemistry, and Biology sub-sections. Useful tables on vitamin, diseases, deficiencies etc. Plenty of explanatory diagrams are thrown in as well to aid learning. It starts with information on the different Indian States and contains useful info on the Indian Space Programme. Important International Organisations are also covered. Useful Coverage of Current Events Although aspirants tend to focus on the past 10 months or so current events they should know that nowadays UPSC is asking questions related to events that occurred years back.
It covers events from January till August this year, both domestic as well as international. So if you continue from this period onwards you will have a good collection of current bits on events that occurred months prior to the Prelims. It will add real value to your preparation and revision and for certain topics like Geography and Science can completely eliminate the need for a standard text book and other books.
Let us review it briefly. Each section starts with an introduction to the topic followed by detailed solved questions where steps to solve the particular problem type are included.
After you gain confidence in tackling that question type, you are expected to take the exercise that follows. Detailed solutions are provided for each question at the end so there is no confusion left in your mind.
While some other reference manuals are doubtful at best when it comes to accurate answers, this is never an issue with TMH books and the CSAT Manual is no exception. Page 10 Click here to see Page Only article of use to us is Indians in Mosul. This is a developing story, we will read the article, most probably there will only be lines of use to us in this article which we should underline and add to our notes.
Page 12 Click here to see Page Again the article of use is Kurdish leadership one. This again is a developing story, read it fast and underline and make notes of new things we find.
Japan — China question is an old one and so much we already know about it that not much time needs to be spent on it. Page 15 Click here to see Page There is an article on El Nino.
The idea is — our base should be so strong that when we study the higher things, we should be able to understand them straightaway.
If our base is not strong, then we would have to keep revisiting it and will waste a lot of time.
A good base means we should not feel the need of ever revisiting the basic books again. Basic Books In this phase we should cover all the basic books. These include: — Bipin Chandra for Indian freedom. However, note making is preferable for at least 3 strong reasons: 1. We may have studied something in some context but in exam we may apply it in some other context. While making notes, we convert the language of the book into our own language and this process helps a lot in internalizing stuff.
It saves time! This may sound contrary to common sense because underlining is definitely faster than painstakingly writing stuff in our own language. True, preparing notes takes lot longer than underlining books. But because they are in our own language, revising them takes lot lesser time than revising underlined stuff. In fact, with well prepared notes, it may be possible to revise your entire syllabus some times and each successive revision will be faster! Notes are customizable.
We can frame our own questions which we think may be asked in UPSC and prepare our notes accordingly. Notes on Paper vs Notes on Computer Try to make notes on computer if your typing speed is even half decent. It is editable and can be formatted easily. We can delete, format, append, insert, do anything with notes on computer and yet make it one clean nice story. For instance, many stories in current affairs develop over weeks and months.
No newspaper story will have a complete picture of it. But the question will only ask the complete story. So in our notes, we will have to edit bit by bit over time so that by the exam time we have the entire story in one place.
The choice is yours — read n number of newspaper cuttings or physical paper notes, each containing partial information or read one coherent, complete story in one place only on computer. This will help us in quick revisions as well. This may include the basic books, the advanced books, newspapers, magazines, reports etc.
Thus whether we read from a book, newspaper, internet or wherever, all our notes on coal energy should be in one place only. Click here to see the note on energy. This will provide a picture of how to organize the notes forgive me for some instances of lack of formatting in the note as they were added when I had grown lazy.
Newspaper and Magazine Reading News vs Issues People in the beginning tend to focus on news and make notes accordingly. UPSC never asks news… it asks issues. An issue specific reading thus tries to: 1. For eg. Then when we read any news, we need to connect it to the key points so identified and not bother about facts and figures.
Politics, sports, masala news etc. Keep an eye on any committee, any law, any rules, any policy, any supreme court orders etc.
These are our bread and butter in upsc preparation. Hindu has become very very important since last 2 years. Read one more newspaper at least. Since Hindu is left leaning, so may suggest a pro-reform newspaper say Indian Express. UPSC is a left leaning exam. So one may read EPW magazine, but beware of the excessively left leaning rattling. Similarly yojana is a helpful magazine as well.
GS is a generalist exam and reading has to be kept generalist too. Our goal should be to finish one newspaper in max half an hour. But for our exam we need full information. Only place today to find complete information is internet. This can be done only on internet.
How to use the internet 1. It is free and easy. Any new item will show up with title and one line on your feedly. We can decide to either read it or skip it.
Other meaningful alerts may be created.
Report Reading During our preparation we will need to read multiple committee reports. There is always a temptation to just make our notes based on that newspaper article. But this is not the right approach — because the newspaper article has not been written for the upsc exam and the reporter may not have covered all points relevant to us in our preparation for the exam. So the correct approach is to always look up for the original report on the internet and read it.
How to read bulky reports But many reports are bulky. If we read them in detail, it would take an inordinate amount of time.
But to save on time, we need not read each part in same detail and concentration. This will quicken up our reading substantially. The second reading and note making part would be substantially faster. Now we address our syllabus directly. Coaching Material There are handwritten classnotes of various coaching institutes available in the photocopy shops of rajinder nagar and mukherjee nagar. Notes from vajiram, insight, sriram printed material are good for various parts of GS.
We should read them and in fact for Vajiram and Sriram, I found them to be better than the actual classes. Each volume should be read and notes prepared from them as mentioned earlier.
