Dear Friends, The wait is finally over. The ForumIAS 2018 Comprehensive Guidance Program 2018 is now out and admissions Open. 5% Early Bird Offer for Non-MGP Students and 10% Early Bird Offer for MGP Students.

Which monthly Current Affairs periodical to follow- Vision/Insights/IAS Baba or anything else?

I was surprised to find the content have very less overlap (topic wise at least for June). While Vision is too crisp, IAS Baba is extremely descriptive. Insights seem decently comprehensive but I am not confident about solely relying on it since many toppers suggest Vision. Can some senior players please suggest which one is advisable to follow. Please add any other relevant source for CA you think is good apart from these three.


  • I follow daily CA provided by insights , and at the end of the month I supplement it with vision CA. Cant do much than that. Anyways, this years' question paper clearly illustrates that current affairs are a very treacherous thing, and basing your preparation on any source is going to be a risky proposition. Hence, don't run behind every source available out there , rather try to finish 2 sources at best and hope for the best.

  • For me, vision and then insights for cross reference in case I want to read elaborately on the topic. Baba is good, but he tends to ramble. Look for a good average. There's forumias as well.
    Its called garbage can, not garbage cannot.
