Attempt # 4 | 1st attempt with PSIR optional | Previous attempts with statistics optional | RBI Grade B Officer


  • bhai I used this book last year, I did not find it much useful. May be they have updated it to reflect the exam pattern
    All generalizations are false including this one
    Fascinating Universe -
  • This book is recommended by Rachit raj(AIR-3). He scored 142 marks in GS-4
    CSE 2014 : Fail
    CSE 2015 : Results awaited!
  • @abhinitb can you please give us an idea of the contents and the writing style of this book? Does it define concepts, provides case studies, is it preachy or more exam oriented.

    I think what eventually matters is how Rachit Raj handled the book, how he framed his answers etc.

    That being said, I used no material other than vaji notes to prepare and I regret doing even that. So people please do give your suggestions vis ethics material.
  • @inthefray There was no one stop solution for ethics last year. Pragati ias and Sriram did come out with some good notes last year but obvioualy with not much idea abt pattern lot of improvisation had to be done then n there.
    I haven't seen vajis notes but i have this pn roy book. leaves a lot to be desired .may be the new edition has fixed the shortcomings. How much did you manage to score if thats not too personal . :-)
    Every day above the ground is a good day.
  • @My_Time_Is_Now nothing personal about the marks, other than the embarrassment! I scored a lowly 66. Wrote poorly, in a haphazard and disorganised fashion. That's why I'm keen on getting some professional/exam oriented material. At least this time my responses should sound educated even if not super original :D
