For prelims read some books based upon aptitude and reasoning like R.S.Agarwal.
For mains read the text books of your optional subjects thoroughly.Also read daily newspaper and magazines.

Hello friend,

Its very good aim in life to become IAS.
To become IAS, you need to crack an exam called Civil service exam conducted by UPSC.
There are various study material based on the subjects you choose.
Civil service consist of
prelims
Mains
Interview.

If you clear the prelims only, you will be eligible for mains and interview.

For prelims, The best study material for GS would be
The Hindu Newspaper
Civil service chronicles
Competitive Success Review( CSR Magazine)

For main subject, that you have to mention your core paper and you can take up coaching in some good coaching which will help you and provide the best study material.

Prepare well.

All the best.
Thank you.

About Preliminary Exam preparation,
- one paper is optional i.e. your choice
- One paper is compulsory i.e. General Studies.

- Now i will tell you how to prepare for General Studies(GS) paper.
- if one wants to have command over GS, then he has to prepare 8 major area i.e.
History
Geography
Polity
Science
Economy
Mental Abiltiy
Current Affairs
General Knowledge.

- For all the above topics, best way to start is from Basics i.e. NCERT Books of Class 6th to Class 12th.
- For History - NCERT + Spectrums Modern India
- Geography - NCERT + GoCheng leong + a good atlas like orient longman/oxford.
- Polity - NCERT + any good guide book like laxmikanth's indian polity/ Jojo mathews's Indian constitution and polity.
- Science - i think Ncert class 6th to class 12th is more than enough.
- Economy - NCERT class 11th and 12th + pratiyogita darpan's special issue on indian economy + Read and make notes of newspaper about current economy.
- Mental Ability - R.s.Agarwal.
- Current Affairs - one has to be thorough with newspaper readings of atleast one year back from the date of exam.
- General Knowledge - India year book + Manorama year book or Chronicle year book.

- if one is thorough with the above topics from the above materials, then he/she will definitely crack this exam easily.

Hi,

You can prefer physics and maths NCERT books or that you have studied in 12th for Mains and that is more than enough.
Practice previous year papers to get the idea of the exam pattern.
