    Can I crack Civil Services Exam by just studying only on weekends? Let me know about the mandatory optional subjects for it. Does the syllabus for subjects change every year?

    Hi,
    I am a software engineer working in a reputed company and aspiring to give Civil Services exam.
    Would it be possible for me to study on weekends and still be able to crack this exam ?
    If yes , then plz let me know the mandatory as well as optional subjects and best books for it .
    Also does the syllabus changes every year ? ..because if I buy the books now and give the exam 2-3 yrs later then may be by that time syllabus may change .....
    Do u recommend to join any coaching class or is it possible for anyone to crack this exam studying on their on own ?

    You should solve previous question paper.
    You should helping books of Good Prakashan.
