    Have you done Modern India first?
  • for medieval, do from old NCERT.. it is the best one.. but dont give much weightage to it.. do more of modern India..

    Spectrum's GS manual could be used as well.

    Since medieval india doesn't have much weightage in pre and is not in the syllabus of mains, you can even read lucent GK's medieval history portion. Otherwise, you can even leave it altogether.

    Lucent's GK book would do too. I, however, would never suggest leaving ANY portion of the syllabus completely in the current scheme of things where only a single paper is going to decide the merit. The onus lies on the aspirant to be ready for any sort of paper.

    Lucent does very fine. will tell you what all you need to read.
  • Thank you all guys. It's just that since this time questions were asked from this portion so I thought there should be some extra preparation for this. It seems old NCERT is the safest & cheapest option.
