Though coaching institute has very less role in preparation for civil service, but there you will get the right way and strategy, rest you have to do yourself.
So just join any good coaching center if you can, you will find many of them in mukerji nagar if you are nearby Delhi.
Either you can do it yourself just believe in yourself, don’t rush with lots of books, read only good limited books. keep tracking interviews of people who got selected in IAS in competitive books, this will motivate you, take help from your teachers and any of one who is preparing for civil service. use all source of knowledge, books, TV, interenet, radio. schedule your time down to every minute. there is no other best option then hardwork.

Best of luck for your future
