  • Pick any one vision / insight. N solve fulllength of the other
  • I'm going for baba I guess this time coz I tried Insights last time. Just for variety
    . We are what we do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.
  • Avoid Iasbaba. I haven't solved their test series but if their 60 day plan is how they set their test series, it will mostly be unnecessary technical details which aren't needed in UPSC.

    Do you find Insights better then? Do you have any idea of Civilsdaily?

    I found Vision of this year to be the most relevant with respect to the actual paper. No idea of civilsdaily, sorry.

    try insights this year, timetable is too comprehensive and modified

    Link for insights mains time table??
  • i can give my review based on Ias baba 60 days vs insights test series(last 4 full tests). considering this years prelims i found ias baba more relevant than insights.

    Just to mention i took full time prelims series at forum ias
    2015: pelims p1 62
    2016: pelims p1 114 mains 726
    2017: prelims p1 116.66 (forum key)

    never heard of it... follow either visions/insights/ias baba test plan....you can easily get their test as people share them regularly

    I've compared it to last years (and I was in it last year) and I don't find any significant difference. They've not made it properly subject based, just split up the NCERTS and books. From my previous experience, leaving standard books for last 6 months is not smart, which has happened again. They have started only Ramesh Singh by august as NCERT is just too basic for economy. Once the IYB and economic survey come you will be hard pressed for time as they are voluminous or complex for some.
    The question standard is OK. It could have been more conceptual, but maybe they have learned now.

    In the end I will buy their series just to solve questions but I'm not following their schedule, it doesn't suit my style.
    All you people should decide based on your own capacity. I've decided not to buy any test series now.

    Upto you , but don't forget you are completing your optional and doing substantial amount of writing in the initial 6 months , people who have made their own schedule will complete pre syllabus by September and mains by December but still at the time of exam they would wish they had more 20 days .... So it doesn't matter ...
    At the end it's true what u said , do what suits you.

  • Insights full length tests before prelims were pathetic
    I haven't seen insights schedule this year but last year they scheduled various subjects together which I didnt found helpful

    Vision with their subject specific tests are better in my opinion

    No idea about ias baba
  • Anyone have idea about IAS today daily answer review programme..?? I am a fresher...Please say review about it

    DOn't quIT :)

  • Vision helps you build concepts and then apply, also asks RELEVANT questions in CA. Last year I scored 104 without tests and this year 130 around with vision tests. Vision alone will make you sail through prelims provided you revise all tests in last week before 3rd June.

    Forumias tests are also very high quality ones. You can do revision tests of insights later from their website.
  • If anyone is joining visionias 2018 prelims test series and is ready for cost sharing, please let me know.
    I am just an ordinary guy with nothing to loose
  • I had got some vision tests before Pre this year and toota hua dil is right, they were good for concepts. I don't expect test series to predict questions any more. I just want question to make us think.
    Logically thinking, we didn't expect that of JEE institutes did we and now because some institutes had a good hit rate for a couple years, we have started getting dependant.

    So, as I was making a schedule, I felt that I wasn't giving adequate practice time, so I have bought baba's online all India series.

    Same opinion; lot of unwanted or irrelevant data for upsc aspirants .

  • Reviews for ForumIAS pre test series ?
  • Forumias & vision are at par... Choose anyone out of two but never ever try vajiram n Insight test series...
  • https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe7cdSjg3peR2bwc2KFE571WcRMe3rK2Tip-HoHanlCo5edPQ/viewform - i have some clarification. if any of the test givers have given it already do let me know for discussion

    Reviews for ForumIAS pre test series ?

    Forum pre test series is quite good..good questions and close to 3000 people give them; the only negative is that some solutions are wrong and they do not provide any corrections.

    If possible, try to do both forum and vision

  • Insight pre test series is waste of time, they pickup questions directly from ncert and mostly questions are not of the standard of upsc....definitely vision test series is better than insights
  • Does anybody hv insight pre test series pdf for this year?
