    Hi! Shankar Academy is best for geo optional because Shankar Sir's , dedication and experience.
    GS coaching is OK, Test series is good.
  • How's the sociology coaching if any ?
  • Shankar is the best for Geography in chennai. GS was pissed off during year due to their internal rife..
  • sociology ,,, smart leaders is best
  • how about choosing Indian ias academy I need reviews on it ....
  • For sociology sivarajavel sir from smart leaders is good . . .
  • Before you join this academy, at least learn the basics. Because no one here will sit and teach u d basics. Don't get demotivated by 'super brilliant' students who raise their hands for a question which u barely can understand. Never ever get demotivated. You can pick up the speed. Bt it'll seem like everyone over dere are super duper students except u. Dont worry. Best of luck 8-|
  • Hi all. I am gonna start my group 1 preparations. Will u people pls suggest me a good coaching centre to join. I am a working person. So have to take the weekend classes. Which wud be the best.

  • @sheldon Thank u very much sheldon.
  • @Tharan am gonna prepare for UPSC...
  • Oh fine. All the very best :)
  • @Tharan I think with UPSC preparation and some knowledge about Tamilnadu, you can clear TNPSC prelims (I did that this time with no separate preparation). BTW TNPSC is more competitive these days :) just 25 posts and 10Lakh applicants.

  • Yeah I accept that. But the thing is, I am absolutely starting from the scratch, except for some central govt exams (ssc, AO etc,,)that I have prepared. And my desire is that I want to work under TN govt at these group 1 levels. Also I have got only 12 to 18 months to settle down. :-/
    And the toughest is, I am a working person :(

    Dude just check this site
    http://essarreprographics.wordpress.com/civils/

    If you scroll down you'll find the book that you need. The person in the site is located in Hyderabad and most probably you can have it couriered to your house. I think its a credible source. Otherwise try to contact Jawahar book house in Delhi.
