Preparing for the Civil Services Examination
Its been again a long time that I had any post written here. Well, I have one now, an important one and something which is very close to my heart. It is like seeing another dream of mine coming true, on which I patiently worked upon for at least more than a year. But it was not before I got support from my colleagues, through a team effort that I was able to bring this out today.
Many people have asked, and been asking help and guidance regarding the preparation for the civil services examination, and we all have been doing our bit to clear their doubts and worries. Yet, these were all efforts in many directions and in bits. There was always a necessity for a consolidation of all these suggestions and ideas, experiences and strategies for the benefit of all the aspirants working for the exam. My parents at a point of time, mentioned to me that one should come up with some book which explains all the basics to all the aspirants, especially the newcomers. I had very similar feelings throughout my preparation, and so once I am done with my prep, I started working on making all the above happen. To give a directed guidance, in the form of a document.
There must have been some websites and other books/institutes doing the same job. Thanks to them, we are helpful in sharing our experiences to a wider audience than ever before. Nevertheless, this effort would find aspirants with some answers for the changed pattern as well as gearing up for all stages of the examination through a singular effort.
Please go through the document, it can help a lot. and I hope it helps as many as possible.
Please send in your ideas/strategies/suggestions/concerns/comments so that we can incorporate them in an updated version of the document.
This is not the end of the effort, but as suggested in the document, we still need to come up with a central repository of all the material that will be useful for various papers in the new pattern. Watch out for this space (and the forum : www.worthview.com/forum ) for updates on documents and resources.
