  • It is useful, but won't replace your own hard work on current affairs. Keep reading the newspaper along with 365/monthly booklets
    2017 : P,M. Far from interview cutoff
    2018 : P,M*
    Anthropology (CSE)
    Botany and Forestry (IFoS)
  • Helped me in polity and IR. For the rest I only covered very prominent topics like data security, EIA, ayushman bharat. Not good for multiple revisions, if you have your own current affairs notes, which I had.
    Prelims 2, Mains 2
    Sociology optional

    Happy to help.
