  • Read everything but dont read it in detalis.
    Follow the foll.rules

    forget about:
    Numbers and facts
    New star/black hole/nova found stuffs

    Remember:
    Why's ,how's ,what's and when's,backgrounds,history of issue,policies,schemes,env species,corals

    As far as I know, such material is compiled by content developers who might not be qualified for the job. They use simple copy+paste techniques for making this content.So dont use it as material of last resort.follow the newspapers more than you follow these magazines.

    If u read the newspapers , you will find that most of the stuff is copied from them only.Sometimes I could find editorials of the Hindu written in bullet forms In that magazine.

    If you read both of them thoroughly , u canmake notes out of the magazine which can be not more than a single A4 page. I did it last year.

    Best of luck!

    If you have it, read it in a linear fashion. If you are not having the gusto to complete and digest it, I think you should rather relax and do 1 thing. Download Insights Current Events. Also go to Hindu's website and from past November on wards just download important editorials in your drive. From that, either make notes or highlight important key words/phrases in it. For that you would need a good Pdf reader like Foxit. Read it and keep reading it as well as read the Hindu daily from now on making notes online if you dont do it offline. Also those highlighted editorials+the documents provided by Insights+Undercover Group's documents on secure as well as the other areas= enough as per my estimation to appear confidently. Plus they would seem less taxing as you would have taken the effort. Dont forget to highlight as during last moment, we can go down the whole hog and rather those highlighted stuff help us well.

  • I was primarily confused about how to prepare current affairs(CA). I have been religiously preparing notes from Hindu and Express(mostly for editorials). Since many say that reading magazine is compulsory, hence started out with Vaji and might not refer it further.
    Can anyone guide me on how to use Insights Current Events? I don't think we need to prepare all the articles under the Daily events. Please correct me if wrong.
    Thanks again.

    Highlight important texts I mean keywords in that Insights Current Events. Also keep revising Inisghts Currents and your notes. Along with that if you feel you can also add Undercover Group's Secure and snt+Enviro weekly notes which they have laboriously prepared. I know its tough handling that material collective greed. But hold your horse and you will be assailable. Also keep a tab on mrunal articles. Just hit print and revise them whenever he publishes one. This way you wont have anything pending.Weekly revisions can also make a big difference.

    from my experience I can tell you that only 30% of that current affairs books is useful and that too for prelims point of view .... for mains, vaji current affairs booklet is 10% efficient ....

    they might make you feel that 100% of book is useful in their test series but that is not true for actual exam
    your newspaper paper notes are enough .... nothing can supplement that ....

  • Now Vajiram has improved the Current Affair magazine by multifold, as it has omitted all the redundant columns like Obituary, sports etc, which are irrelevant for UPSC. Other than that , it has added a Cover Story column in the beginning of the book, which covers the burning topic of the month, and above it Vajiram has started providing with the objective type questions in the fag-end of the magazine.
