Hi dear,
"Prepare for the battle, the more you practise, the less you bleed in battle"

Well IAS exam is the toughest exam in this country but a strong will and hard determination is enough to bolster this nut.

In a nutshell focus on your objective, prepare the general awareness section, general studies and improve your communication skills as this will be very much instrumental in your interview.

Refer Hindu, Pratiyogita Darpan, frontline, CSR refreshers,NCERT texts for more better results...

you can also go for some coaching classes and take mock interviews...
here are the books i am concerning for better preparation
1. New Horizons of Public Administration by Mohit Bhattacharya

2. Administrative Thinkers by Prasad and Prasad

3. Indian Administration by Rajni Goel

4. Public Administration and Public Affairs by Nicholar Henry
Thanks
