    Re: List of best books for the preparation of IAS exam?

    Dear as for as my views are concerned that only good books of various publishers are not enough to get qualified in the exam because every candidate need a good and supportive motivation with the study and this strategy makes the person successful in the examination because when they feel something out of study so there should be a successful person who could encourage them instantly and tell them the way of career that how and why should be go for this way in our career time and we are not saying about that books are not good, so many candidates are there who use only books and do not get coaching institute and that's why they qualify the exams both prelims and mains but unfortunately due to the insufficiency of the complete guidance and motivation they got failed in the interview process so dear if you wants to become completely successful in IAS exams then you will have to join any coaching institute which could guide you well and motivate you to get the success and wake up you during each and every step of the examination so that you should join any coaching institute first then you should purchase some following books to prepare for your examination of both prelims and main exam :

    M. Laxmikanth - Indian polity and Public Administration
    RS Agrawal - Quantitive Aptitude and CSAT
    TMH CSAT - Civil Services
    Arihant Publication - GS and CSAT prelims and mains
    Upkar Publication - General Studies and CSAT - prelims and mains exam
    India Year Book - 2012-13
    Chronicle - Civil Services
    CST - Civil Service Today
    The Hindu - Daily News Paper
    Charles Farrow - Geography
    NCERT Books for Geography and Indian Polity - 8th to +2 Level
    Bipin Chandra
    DD Basu
    Bakshi
    Romila Thapar
    Gopal Krishna
    AC Banarjee
    Mishra and Puri - Indian Economy
    Ram Ahuja - sociology
