The CSAT exam consists of the preliminary examination & main exam with an interview.
The preliminary exam pattern consisted of-
1. Two objective type papers:
(i) one paper was based on the general studies
(ii) The other paper was based on the optional subjects that were in turn, chosen by the candidates.
The general studies paper was common, whereas the optional subject paper differs from candidate to candidate. This was complicating and little confusing and this was way too much complication for first level of the entrance exam, as there is main exam after the entrance exam, followed by the interview.
So it is advisable for you to get through knowledge about the general knowledge from various G.k books.Try to read the newspaper daily
The preparation of optional subject can be done under the guidance of some good expert with in a lesser time practice.

Many candidates weren’t aware of the Indian history, but would in turn score high marks in the preliminary examination, but without knowledge about the country, there is no use of getting appointed as the officers in the civil services cadres. And it is also said that both the papers in the CSAT would be bearing same weightage, when it is coming to marks allotment segment and also would be the same to all the aspiring candidates of the civil services examination.

You can get the model papers from-
http://csat.iupsc.com/sample-papers/

You can refer the following books as under-
1. General Studies Manual (GS Manual)
2. Tata McGraw Hill's (TMH) GS Manual for prelims.
3. Year Book
4. Book for Indian Polity
5. Student Atlas for Geography related questions

If you wants to prepare for CSAT -2011 which will be conducted by upsc in the month of june this year then make a planning and time table of your studies. Civil service examination is one of the toughest and top most exam in india. It need an extensive and hard study. Start your study right now with strong determination and rocking will power. You must be enthusiastic and determinate about this exam,take it seriously. Do not waste your time unnecessarily. Accumulate all the informations about the world and the universe. Get up to date knowledge of general awareness and current affairs. Consult 3 to 4 IAS books written by eminent writers. Read fortnightly,monthly and yearly magazines like competition success review, pratiyogita darpan, wizard current affairs,india today,competition refresher,chronical etc. You can also join a reputed coaching institute where experts can teach you systematically and briefly. You will definitely crack the exam if you concentrate your study with high thinking and right mentality. I have attached a file below regarding CSAT syllabus, download it and prepare accordingly.

Thumbs up Re: How to prepare for CSAT exams? Which books to be referred for CSAT exam?

Hello friend..

there is no particular method for preparation..

first of all is confidence regarding your examination..

your own unique style in preparation is necessary..

first of all have full knowledge regarding exam pattern and syllabus

as you stressed about CSAT

it is a new pattern no one has experience regarding the paper..

so it is somewhat difficult for the candidates who are appearing..

but as analyst i can expect the similar paper of gate aptitude or cat aptitude

question paper..

be confident in aptitude and quantitative papers

for model papers regarding this CSAT go through the following links

you'll get some model papers.

www.onestopias.com

www.upsc-portal.com

all the best

for your preparation.

CSAT is a newly introduced aptitude papers pattern,

it is inspired from the likes of cat GMAT examinations.

so i would suggest to take help of specialists

Like TIME/CL/IMS etc.

apart form that follow well established writers

like R.S. aggarwala, Arun sharma etc.

I am very confused about the lateral admission in MCA for A level qualifiers, bcz of dissimilar arguments on the websites. Can one tell me that should it be possible for A level qualifier to get addmission in ||| sem of MCA in IGNOU? And if anyone is pursuing MCA form IGNOU then can you tell me the recognition of MCA degree from IGNOU in corporate sector?

However MD university Rohtak and PTU facilitates a lateral addmission in ||| sem to A level holders but I have heard that there isn't any recognition of MCA degree from these universities to corporate sector. Please suggest.....
