  • There is a summary somewhere I think, of some 115 pages. See if you can get a hold of that. If you still want important chapters, I'll try naming some.

    Disclaimer: I am a first timer.

  • In my opinion, every chapter contains something from which questions can be asked. And every chapter is redundant and it would make you want to pull your hair at times. Atleast it happened in my case. In my opinion the summary would give you a greater return on investment. It contains just the important bits of every chapter, kind of like a filter. 115 pages, you can do it in a matter of a few days.

    Otherwise, if I go on to listing chapters, I would have to list every chapter and then subsections from it.

  • Bhai if u r asking for important chapters then do one thing at this point of time..have a glance of the whole book..then divide it into.3 sections..I can do it, i cannot do it whatever I do and I have to do it
    U can ignore the institutions and acts from the book as has been covered in various current affair booklets..or u can do this..take a marker..then just start reading at rocket speed..and just highlight the relevant lines..it will not take too much of ur time..then after few days revise only the highlighted ones..it takes maximum 4-5 hrs to revise the highlighted portions.
    Limited period offer-U can laugh at me till the 1st half of 2018
