(Need honest review for 2017 CSM) Insights Secure vs IASbaba TLP vs Forumias mains marathon

As everyone knows Civil Service mains is all about answer writing practice based on current affairs questions.
I found the following three initiatives worth consideration.
All three are free of cost, online based.
But confused in choosing any one for practicing answer writing.
Insights Secure
IASbaba TLP
ForumIAS Mains Marathon
Please share your views about these three. Both positive, negative (only honest review pls).
Ex. Their feedback, synopsis compilation, utility in previous UPSC Mains etc.
Mention your experience with these, if any.

Note- All three are doing some good work. It's only to know better before choosing one. Not to promote or denigrate others.

  • instead of confusing urself in between these three.. it ll be better for u to stick to any one of these (all are gud ).... and make sure u r daily writing the answers..... its more important to sharpen up ur skills than to cover all of the news under the sun.... only motive of answer writing and all these initiatives is to improve ur writing,analytical & structuring skills... nothing else... all d best...bdw for me it is insights ;)

    i have been seeing all of them. for my own consumption.. if u can follow insighst well and good,, but their questions are not good..

    i have seen that in setting questions forumias is no.1 , but in timely answers , forumias is far behind the benchmark of insights.. two of my friends who are undergoing training in academy ( not lbsnaa ) were following the forum mains marathon, which they were exchanging and practising among themselves.. but lack of timely compilation killed the joy..
    so moral is - if you want good questions - forumias
    if u want good compilation in the end - insights
    i didnt find iasbaba relevant so much..

    personal opinion

    like right now also, i want to start writing anwers, but there is no sign of mains marathon for 2017..

  • insights : they just pick the one statement from the article and just say discuss/comment/analyse etc. So their questions, not so good. But since many people write answers there, there are more chances that someone will review your answer. Compilations will be provided. Mostly current affairs based

    IASBABA : questions are okay, they also check sometimes but not many people write on that platform. Compilations will be provided. Mix of static and dynamic

    Forum IAS: Best questions, but no one writes on that platform, For 2017, don't know whether they will start or not. Compilations don't know @ForumIAS
    The day we decided that the worth of an individual was determined by their performance in an examination, that was the day Education failed us.

    Long live Revolution, Down with ForumIAS. Ban me Mods
  • Honestly I'm bit surprised different opinions. But all opinion really helpful. Thanks guys

    I thought TLP answers were little more focused on what asked in the questions. Also the word limit factored, more concise ans. :o
    Earlier read Secure synapsis. More no of questions, felt like ans were little deviated.
    Not read Marathon compilation much, so can't comment.

    Anyway more reviews, honest opinions are most welcomed.

    May be after Mains over. But hope that they start earlier.

    BTW Marathon looks more promising B)
    Drawbacks: Less aspirants post ans, Compilations comes late.
    Checked compilations after watching Neyawn sir's eye-opening video on Mains ans writing!
    Waiting....

  • Regarding test series of IAS BABA You can Check it here below
    http://frantenia.blogspot.in/2016/11/test-series.html
  • ALL are good as they comes free.Take questions that comes in line with upsc standard. All questions may not be in standard. But coming to review part,think twice about the effectiveness of co-aspirants review .
  • Forumias mains marathon simply because any material you study must be revised multiple times.Secure is too bulky and questions not that relevant.
    Forum has good quality and limited number of questions with good solutions.
