Thanks

  • I know only about synergy (Mohanty), found their questions, feedback and discussion decent enough (if not best) but their own administration is not upto the mark with regard to planning, scheduling and following the same on time.

    It's most likely, i will join the same (stating from 5 Sept.) because a "good" decision will do even if it is not the best decision (Herbert Simon)

  • Does lukmaan IAS provide online test series option. ? If anyone has the contact number of ansari sir please provide it.

    Following is the list of institute which provide Pub Adm. Test Series (atleast average if not best)-

    1. synergy - http://synergy.edu.in/news/public-administration-main-test-series-2015

    2. Vajiram - http://vajiramandravi.com/vajiram/testseries

    3. M.Puri - http://mpuriias.com/test-series/

    4. Lukmann - http://lukmaanias.com/public-administration/

    5. Pavan Kumar - http://www.pavankumarias.com/courses.php

    But everyone is conducting on Saturdays and timing ka bada issue ho reha hai so check before enrolling or agar kuch feedback hai to woh bhi share kardo.


    ** Synergy dropped its price to Rs 1500 for its last two batches, Rs 8500 for other old students ... kuch toh gabad hai ... :-? ya to bulk me log join kar liye ya phir koi join nahi kiya

  • This is what Tushar Singla (Air 86, Most Probably the second highest in Pub Ad. 160+103=263) has written about Lukmann test series

    (copy pasted)

    Fourthly, many people are asking about which test series to follow for PA. I have attended only Lukmaan Ias test series (karol bagh centre) so can’t have an opinion about other test series’. I wrote only 4 tests out of 14 in tests series and all of these from Paper1 and never wrote anything from paper2 in my preparation cycle in 2 years except 2 UPSC mains paper in Pub Ad (looking at my numbers in PA Paper2 I should have written some tests for Paper2, also it’s not a prescription for skipping writing practice as everybody has different preparation framework).

    Despite not writing the full test series, I attended all 14 discussions of PA tests averaging around 4 hours per discussion. Now this 56 hour lecture in PA immensely benefitted me as the diversity, quality, difficulty and innovative level of question papers was quite good and I credit Salamuddin Ansari Sir for covering almost entire syllabus in a comprehensive question answer format in these 56 odd hours. I revised all the test papers and discussion classes during which I constantly wrote whatever was discussed, few times before mains exam. These discussions also changed my thinking process in Pub Ad as well as GS as to how to mould any concept and topic in QA format and quickly write a quality answer in limited time during real examination even if you have not read exactly about the topic (In fact my mains centre was Chandigarh and I came on 10th December to Delhi to attend last discussion of PA)

    This combination of class notes, Aribam books, Prasad and Prasad, Rajni Arora, and any one good test series (lukmaan in my case) will substantially cover your syllabus and also simplify and unclog your preparation not only in PA but also in GS

    @abhishek_lko_123 : most of the institute don't provide the courier facility, but check once with their administration unit

    They will upload the test - you have to take print out of the booklet everytime and after writing it scan it and re upload to ur account --

    There was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope.
