Reference Books For IAS / UPSC

Reference Books

UPSC prelims have become lot tougher and demanding. UPSC is unsettling the set pattern of preparation. Prelims was the proof with lot questions from Current affairs and less questions from conventional static part. But one cannot and in my humble opinion should not guess the paper rather than change his strategy and approach which in any kind of paper will help to clear the prelims.
So every aspirant has to be strong in both static part and current affairs part, and above all equal importance. so choose one book per subject and read it thoroughly, revise as much as possible, Read News papers + 1 year of current affairs and practise any prelims test you can get. One more important thing start writing, take it as a feedback mechanism and learning process, gently nudging you to the important topic which you know or dont know, you get a chance to learn and improve up on questions.
