    I will answer this question since I have attended his classes.

    He does not provide ( or at least did not use to provide ) notes in the class. You are supposed to note down things and make your own notes. Typical Vajiram style.

    However, if you follow his lectures, which are a bit lengthy and end up making notes - you will gain - both the speed required for the Mains examination as well as having handwritten all of current affairs in your own handwriting.

    His plus is that he will cover everything - wont leave anything. IR, Eco and Current related everything is his strong point - from 3-4 newspapers.

    Negative side is that his classes will be at least 2 and half hours.. sometimes three hours.. and if what he is teaching is interesting, you will enjoy it . If its not your interest area , you wont.

    If you have read the newspaper well and have some knowledge, it will be very helpful for consolidation.

    You will usually find people going to his classes for rank improvement and marks improvement. I had joined him because a friend who had the fifth highest in Mains recommended me .

    @Aks on the Forum took his classes on my recommendation last year as he was in ORN. He did score a bit better in Mains. You can ping him as well as @greymatterrules ( Rank 86 ) and @ bikerguy ( Rank 35 or so and ForumIAS Co-Founder ;-) ) who had taken classes before Mains.

    Again, to benefit from any classes, you will need to have the patience to sit through the class. So if you are the less patient types and cant sit for long hours, dont join him.
    Thanks bhai..that sums up everything.

  • I joined Chokkalingam sir's classes for prelims this year and it helped a lot. He touches upon almost all important topics from an exam point of view. Taking down class notes is a plus as it reinforces learning and helps in consolidation and revision later. He's a very good teacher.

  • I joined his online classes on flavido. Though i was a bit irregular with the classes but in my honest opinion, he cover ca really well. It is upto you how much you can imbibe. Be regular with the classes and ca will not be a cause of worry.
    Notes, you need to make on your own like any other class.
    You can bank on his classes for mains.

  • Yes, you need to have an account on Flavido.com (or login through your google/fb accounts) to access content.
