Hi, can you please update with books for gs mains for topics other than mentioned.
We have listed all the recommended books for GS Prelims and Mains (including sub-topics) in the link ‘UPSC Books’ which you can find under the resources tab in the Menu. Links to buy the books online are also provided.
I heard that the entire syllabus will be covered by ncert books then why clearias recommended additional books??
And for mains also same, like for single paper clearias is recommended 3-4 books. All those books have different content or same?
Please clarify me sir, thanks.
@Mahesh: The entire syllabus will not be covered by NCERT books. NCERT books will give you only a basic idea. You need to read standard books after that. Now, a faster method is to start with ClearIAS Video Classes (which integrates both NCERT Books and Standard Textbooks). Along with ClearIAS Classes, practice ClearIAS Mock Exams. If you join ClearIAS PCM Program you get access to both.
