Very nice to hear from you that you are aspired to become a Civil servant
very good.

and as you're just a Second year B.Tech there is no need to practice the specially designed civil services aptitude test books from right now itself.

But as you have asked for time being there is nothing wrong to know about them I'll provide some details which I myself gathered for me to prepare for CSAT. i'm going to tell you now

so have a carefull look in to it.

Books that are good for CSAT are as follows.

->Our Constitution -Subash Kashyap.
->an introduction to the constitution of India-D.D Basu
->Constitution of India-P.M.Bakshi
->India's struggle for Independence-Bipan Chandra
->Geography of India-D.R.Khullar.
->Certificate Physical and Humanity Geography-Goh Cheng Leong
->Indian Economy-Dutt and Sundaram
->Indian Economy -Mishra and Puri
->NCERT Books

Journals which will fetch in CSAT preparation are
->Kurukshetra
->World Focus
->Yojana

News papers best for preparation are
->The Hindu
->The Times of India
->The Economic Times.

These are the best sources to prepare for your preparation there is nothing wrong in preparing

but you are only eligible for the examination after you complete your graduation or after getting the age of 21 years which ever is fast.

This is all about your question

Regards
