Hello friend

Preparation depends upon tastes and preferences of Individuals One may like one book the other may not like the same book of various reasons.

If I prepare for Civils now according to my friends advice I will take this book as my choice for its beautiful explanation in simple language.



along with the above book I prefer the below book to practice the question which may appear in UPSC exams



As you know a single book preparation is not at all enough for the preparation most competitive exams like Civils. you have to keep in reserve the more no. of books.

Then only you can attempt all the questions with confidence as many books as you can.

All the best

Regards

~AdityA~
