As far as you are concerned about the syllabus for CDS ( Combined Defense Services ) entrance examination, then it can be downloaded along with the notification released for the same examination by referring to the link www.upsc.gov.in.

From the same link, you can even download the last year papers of the same examination which would help you understand the examination pattern for the same examination.
