    - firstly decide the which exam you can give then know their pattern and syllabus.
    - prefer good books and notes.
    - you can also join any good coaching center or prepare in home by yourself.

    -You should take preparation for UPSC exams very seriously and prepare
    to give your best.It is one of the most competitive and toughest exams
    conducted in India.
    -Go through the previous years question papers to see the level of
    difficulty of the questions asked.
    -Also UPSC is a rank based exam ,a merit list is prepared after final selection.
    -It is not like other exams where minimum marks are prescribed as cutoff and one
    acieves it to pass.
    -The number of candidates are high & are increasing year after year as compared
    to the no. of seats to be filled.Only the top candidates in the merit list get the jobs.
    -Few good reasons to prepare well and dont take it lightly,competition is tough.

    HI Guest,

    Preparation of UPSC Exams needs Basically 3 things:

    1. Focus

    2. Strategy &

    3. Patience

    Now,let me elaborate it.

    1. Focus: First of all you have to set up your mind regarding Exam. Don't confuse by applying in too many Exams.You have to stick with the Exam which you are going to appear in. Once you Decide what you want to be, same time you have made your base take preparation

    2. Strategy: Taking preparation blindly will not help you at all to crack UPSC Exams. First you have to understand the Whole Exam Pattern of the Respective Exam.
    Then find a reliable guidance. If you know anybody who have qualified Upsc Exams,then rush to him/her to take some proper advice.

    3. Patience: Last but not the least you have to keep patience.

    I Hope the above advice will greatly help you.

    Best of Luck & thanks.

    Regular , systematic and also intellectual hardwork is required. ie smartwork.
    minimum 8 hrs of study a day. Study according to a well prepared schedule, covering the entire syllabus. Periodic Revisons is must, otherwise you will feel daunting task before the exam. Make your own notes while studying. Discussions with peers who prepare will help in better understanding.

    you will definitely have hectic time ahead.

    you should split your day for different subjects snd daily study them religiously..

    you should have lot of patience as well..

    all the best
