    Hi Aspirant,

    CSAT exam is conducted by UPSC once in a year for the post of IAS, IPS or IRS.

    This exam is conducted at all India Level.

    Exam pattern will be highly tough because lots of candidates take part in this exam.

    Candidates have need of very hard work and dedication to crack CSAT exam.

    Candidates study with reference books for Deep and broad study.


    Exam pattern and syllabus of CSE

    Prelims ( 400 marks)

    Mains (2000 marks)

    Interview ( 300 marks)


    Candidates should do the preparation according to the syllabus and pattern of exam.

    After completing syllabus candidates should practice of previous year question paper.

    Re: Best reference book for CSAT (Civil Services Aptitude Test).

    you can follow TaTA MCGraw hill's General studies paper 2 CSAT book. It is a comprehensive book which covers the entire syllabus.
    It has seven sections
    1) comprehension
    2) Interpersonal skills including communication skills
    3) Logical reasoning & analytical ability
    4) Decision making & problem solving
    5) general mental ability
    6)Basic numeracy & Data Interpretation
    7) English language comprehension
    Each section is well discussed and there are lot of sample questions for each topic. Besides you have sample solved practice papers and previous year papers. In my opinion its the best book to prepare
