Books For UPSC and All Others Competitive Exams

Collections of Books for Upsc And Other Competitive Examinations

Suggestion: IF you are preparing for any civil services exam like upsc, pcs, ssc-cgl, ibps, rrb, etc. you should first update your basics knowledge of all subjects like history, geography, Indian polity, Economic and Development, Science and Technology, Environment and ecology.

And these basics knowledge you will get from NCERT Books or from other sources (it depends on you), my opinion is ncert books is best to brush-up your basics knowledge, that too from OLD NCERT.

Because in the new book, definition and explanation of terms given in short and concise. But the same definition and explanation of terms given in Details in OLD NCERT BOOKS.
