edited December 2016 in Current Affairs
Dear friends,
'i have appeared mains this year,but i felt lacuna in content in the GS papers(2&3).I only read vision 365 mains compilations.I have prepared my optional very well,but for current affairs i am confused.For next year ,as i am in job ,i have less time.So considering this i have following options
1)Forumias-9pm brief,mains marathon,editorial
2)Insights-secure,daily current affairs
3)Civils daily

Please comment the merits and demerits of all .I have joined tha mains guidance program of Forumias.


  • Utna hi padhiye ( kya padhna hai aur kya nahi, wo aap dekh lijiye apne hisaab se) , jitna ki exam se pehle poora achhe se Revise kiya jaa sake..

    Bina Revision ke CSP/ CSM mein appear hone ka koi matlab hi nahi hota hai..

    Main toh khud hi Abhi Mains exam se pehle har ek cheez thik se Revise nahi kar paaya tha, uske kaaran GS thoda bekar hi hua hai mera toh.... Optional ka paper 1 bhi Bigad hi gaya hai mera.
  • Since you are in job I would suggest you to avoid overdoing any one part and try to have a balanced approach. In my opinion the first option should suffice. Anything missed can be plugged by vision booklets.

    Doing all three would be an overkill.
