    Bro, u need to focus on modern history the most, buy the above book and read it cover to cover, or buy old edition of ncert MODERN INDIA by bipin chandra(get a photocopy from delhi if you can't find one in your local shop) use them in both and re revise them again and again. that should be enough for modern history.

    Ancient history mein , study religion, dance, music, arts, science and technology portion of ancients . other than that, focus on harappa, vedic civilisation, janapadas and bigger kingdoms like, maurya, gupta and harsha, rest just give one read. Get Ancient india OLD ncert by Ram sharan sharma.

    Medieval : focus on delhi sultanate and bhakti movement, sufi etc. mughals in particularly read about there administration and conduct. If you don't want to read everything , then atleast have a general idea about who invaded india , what battle was fought when, focus on the battles who had consequential effects on indian history. get medival india by satish chandra. old ncert.

    modern : study everything, from national movement to peasant uprisings, from satyagraha to quit india and so on. everything here is of importance to both prelims and mains. old ncert (modern india :bipin chandra) or study spectrums brief history of modern india. that is more than enough to cover the course.

    Anything else.

    Modern India : Got the resources. Thanks :)
    Ancient & Medieval : Where to study from ? Will old NCERT suffice ?

    old ncerts are good enough , covers most of the basics, but if you can, focus on religion, dance, art and architechture of ancient and medieval , and also administration and economics in them.

    OLD ncert would cover most of the things. but still read as much as possible.
  • Hi,

    There is a video on History of Delhi, you may check out.



    The channel has a lot of NCERT History covered. You can ask for more topics, if you want them covered.

    Good Luck,
    Sangram
  • For history is it fine that I purchased new ncert books is there any major difference b/w the old and new ncert?
    Kindly let me know.
