    Friend,
    It is not advisable to follow only one sort of material.
    You must read daily news paper like "The Hindu" and you must be well aware about ongoing debates in politics, economy, etc.
    For that you must read some magazines like "Pratiyogita Darpan" and "UPSC portal".
    You can download free books for aptitude tests by R S Agarwal.
    You can read online material form upscportal.com.
    Best of luck.

    Hi dear, your preparation must be in a systematic way, you can go for the NCERT books from 6 to 12 standards in all english, gk, Math, science, etc subjects, in spite of that the daily newspaper required and the main thing is to know about the INDIAN Constitution. Best of luck.

    you not study the whole syllabus in single book.
    you have to refer lots of materials.
    refer MANORAMA YEAR BOOK,UPSCPORTAL GENERAL STUDIES,MADE EASY GENERAL STUDIES,INDIA YEAR BOOK,SURA PUBLICATIONS.
    refer R.S.AGARWAL for REASONING & APTITUDE
    refer MADE EASY GENERAL ENGLISH, solve many model papers.
    also read newspaper.
    collect previous years question papers & practice it.
