Dear friend you have not mentioned your choice subject for IAS exam, however regarding preliminary exam there are two papers to prepare:-

1.optional i.e. your choice
2.compulsory i.e. General Studies.

For general studies there are 8 major subjects for preparetion:-

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.

Over all you can follow the books is as use full as books of "Upkar Prakashan" and "Pratyogita Darpan" they are the best books for preparation of Civil Service examinations.

They have wide range of collections for covering each and every aspect of Civil service examinations.In fact some considered that preparation of such entrance is incomplete without studying from "Upkar Prakashan" and "Pratyogita Darpan" .

IAS stand for Indian Administrative Service. It's is a very reputed post of government job.

Any one who completed graduation they can apply for IAS exam. so first of all you should complete your graduation.
To become an IAS officer you will have to give civil service exam which is conduct every year by UPSC.

Eligibilty of IAS exam:

For this exam you must have graduate degree in any stream from recognised university.
Age should be minimum 21 and maximum 30 years for general categories.
Relaxation for obc is 3 year and for sc/st is 5 year.
In IAS exam only four attempts for general,for obc 7 attempts and no limit for sc/st.
Fee for general candidate is Rs. 100 only. No fee for sc/st/pd.
