These are the books ONE must read for the Civil Services exam. We’ve written this post keeping in mind an absolute beginner aspirant who is starting from level zero.

Please keep the following points in mind:

# Along with these books, get a printout of the syllabus and read it carefully.

#When you start, We recommend that you begin with Standard books/Concise Study Materials. Read and revise them methodically to gain  conceptual clarity. Read and Revise same materials at least twice.

# Some sort of Selective reading, it means there’s no need to read all the book cover to cover. Understand the kind of questions WBPSC usually asks.

#If you are taking coaching, by all means read their notes. But please keep in mind that you cannot just read those coaching notes and neglect these standard books. Standard Notes are useful only for revision in less time.

#Always keep things manageable. It is not so important that how much you read, but how well you read. Keep in mind that whatever you read, you have to revise that also at times of exam. So, limit your study material.

What’s important is you to understand the concepts, memorise the facts well and have a firm grip over the entire syllabus.
