    :) :) :)

    Yes i am..
    hey Akash
    I need some clarification about polity part of GS 2 paper
    Would Laxmikant be enough for the concepts part? I have a fairly good understanding of the subject but many are suggesting reading up DD Basu.
    What would you suggest?

    Hey..

    Laxmikanth is more than enough according to me....mains mein to waise laxmi ka role bhi kam hi hai...the whole paper is dynamic and current oriented..

    for current affairs, should I join ForumIAS current affairs review classes, or rely of Mains 365?
    I am already going through Mains Marathon monthly compilations.
    Review from selected players or people who have joined Forum classes would be much appreciated
  • Sorry if this question has been answered earlier.
    For world history I've done old ncert and parts of Norman Lowe.
    Should vision be done? Given the ROI of doing world history pls guide.
    My only point is whether by not doing vision I'll be losing out on value addition of some points which other ppl might write.
    Pls guide

    Ncert is sufficient.
    There are better starters than me but I'm a strong finisher.

    hello...thank you.. :)

    I make notes from the monthly compilations...so when July ends, i will wait for insights to release the secure synopsis compilation for the whole month or will compile it myself from the daily synopsis provided by them...
    then will read it and make the notes..

    hope it helps..

    hey...thank you.. :)

    i dont know about the classes bro...havent been to any..

    strategy to essay ki kuchh nahi hai....i didnt write any essay before the exam but i identified 25 odd topics a day before the exam and prepared a blueprint on how will i approach if such a topic comes...luckily both the topics i attempted in the exam were out of those 20-25 only...Gender one & Jobless Growth...(did the same thing in 2015 as well, that time also worked).

    Personally i dont think writing essay needs any classes, you can write mocks if u want...

    daily newspaper reading is gone these days.....secure notemaking i do monthly but I used to make notes of daily CA on a regular basis on evernote...i had not made them since november of last year, so have cleared the backlog now...will do it on a regular basis from now on till september 15..

    yes, you can follow whichever source u like...insights ca+vision is fine...
