    Laxmikanth Book itself is a must. No point in leaving any topic.

    Cool. Thanks @zabivaka
  • You're working right? But you still have 5+ months for pre :)
    So try doing one thing. Do polity EVERYDAY for 30 mins exact. But do it everyday. No day without polity.
    What to do? First 10 minutes revise what you did the previous day. 20 minutes do a new chapter. Then next day first 10 minutes revise quickly the contents of the first 2 days. And so on.
    Benefit? Immensely helps you revise and re-revise multiple times the syllabus. Once a week say Sunday extend the polity duration to one hour and revise the whole week's content.
    I'm a person who likes multiple revisions. I can't revise the whole syllabus 3 times. Rather I like revising chapter wise multiple times (this way I end up revising most chapters 20-25 times in much less time) - Saves a lot of time. So this technique helps me. So if it doesn't suit you, discard it :)
    LEAVE NO CHAPTER. You can still think of doing environment or culture selectively (only if you're short of time, and that too at a risk) but not polity. 5 months 30 minutes everyday can make you a master of Lakshmikanth. You will even know where the line break occurs in the book :) So do it!

    Do Lakshmikant properly (from cover to cover). It is not just for prelims but for entire GS-2 mains. Also, In prelims Polity is one section where you can get all answers correctly.
  • No study no confusion, more study more confusion.
  • @nandini -Thanks for the fantastic approach. Will try to follow it. And yes i am working
  • Friends can you please throw some light on my other posts as well :) just a request

    Polity, history (ancient and modern), some parts of environment and current affairs revision (only revision part).

    @yashchawla yaar , those efforts bhi karlo. Spoon feeding won't help.much.
    Ask the shops in orn, search on Google, see old threads and you'll get most of your answers.

    I hope I am curt but not too harsh.

    With due respect, this was not specifically directed to you, so you could have conveniently ignored the comment/query.

    Your intention and posts are totally right as a beginner. But if you could look some old posts, you would have better understanding-specially from the people who have already aced this exam.

    You are leveraging the forum in the right essence. But past experiences here are a treasure.
    Hope you understand.
    No hard feelings.
