  • Why don't you go through a few gists available online? You'll get an idea
    You raise me up, to more than I can be.…

  • Dont do epw as a beginner. Collect them and read after pre. You would be able to skim through easily then.

  • ^^ I would go a step further and say they are unnecessary for the exam. You can read them to satisfy your intellectual curiosity, though.
    If it's the latter, you won't find them daunting. ;)
    P.S.: I read the ones for Jan and Feb. Found them too much for GS.
    Prelims: 3. Mains: 1. Interview: 1. Rank: (?)
    Literature of English Language.
    Dentist, bounty hunter, aspiring diplomat. Opinionated.

    Thats a good idea but I tried doing that with Yojana and in the end I couldnt read a single one.On seeing the pile of mags that were to be read , my heart sunk and I decided against it.

  • Boss yojna can be done in only 2 hours at max. One hour for a few articles that are based on that month's topic and another to skim through the rest.

    I believe you are falling in to the craving to read every other article , but that is exactly what is to be avoided.

    Do one or two based on the main theme and then just glance over the rest which mostly are on the same topic.
    Do the same for kurukshetra and epw if you have time.

    Gist is great , but it leaves you without the case studies that can be extracted for various themes from magazines and newspapers.

  • no need of reading epw..way too leftist and filled with boring statistics with nil roi
