    It hink you need to refer any cognitive psychology book for 'Intelligence and Aptitude". One source is Sternberg - Cognitive psychology http://books.google.co.in/books?id=la6mSK9vyIgC&printsec=frontcover#v=onepage&q&f=false

    There may be a torrent for this book too https://torrentz.in/search?q=sternberg+cognitive+psychology

  • Hi.. Can anyone give a review of Beautiful Mind IAS test series?
    it is very good....arun kumar works hard and tries to correct the mistakes of each individual
  • I will differ ... I didnt find the test series up to the mark ... But that's just my personal opinion ... Others might have found it better ...
  • I will differ ... I didnt find the test series up to the mark ... But that's just my personal opinion ... Others might have found it better ...
    you are selected guy...so plz elaborate a bit more i.e. why didnt you find test series upto the mark?.. its important because nowadays also there are teachers or their protege active here n commenting in favour..e.g. just see the langyage of comment above yours.

  • I 2nd what @machiavelli has said.
    Just do it. It is the 1st & last opportunity!
  • I will differ ... I didnt find the test series up to the mark ... But that's just my personal opinion ... Others might have found it better ...
    Can you please elaborate your preparation strategy for psychology ?

  • I did not get selected this time. I took beautiful mind test series in 2014.

    I agree with @taker. If you want an honest opinion on your psycho answer and to complete revision of syllabus, his tests are far better.

    Anyways its up to u to judge.

    How was performance of psychology this year in your view?
  • I can comment only after seeing the marks... I did give interview. So I could've underperformed in any area I.e. GS interview essay... I will update as soon as I get marks details.

    I know rank 111, 252, 284 and 355 personally. Many from test series also got interview call. Judging only by this I think performance of people in psychology mut be good.

  • The questions asked in test series were too direct while upsc questions require a bit of thought ... Another being discussions for the test in my opinion were not so good because nothing extraordinary was told ... Also I am not qualified enough to question competence of teacher ... But I might add that I think the interconnections needed in psychology answers were avoided
  • But yes ... Medha roopam who got 240 in psychology last year was in same test series ... Though I don't know whether she liked test series or not ... I guess some credit does go to the teacher too... Also some guys seem to really like him ... So decision must be taken accordingly

    Can you please elaborate your preparation strategy for psychology ?

    Let marks come ... If I haven't scored well in psychology I won't be the right person to share a strategy .... But yes if marks are good ... I will share all my material and sources

    @taker we can not be sure that psy has not performed well until we get marks... We may have lost due to poor marks in gs and interview also... Overall many with psy got interview call... That,s all I meant... Let's wait for the marks to be published...

  • The problem I'm facing is that there are no test series for psychology in my area (Mumbai).. Also Arun Sir's class is the only one I found which is starting a series in the month of September.
    If you guys know any other coaching class options for the same.. please suggest!

  • If you are preparing for this years mains I would suggest go for self study .... If next year then you have lots of time to join any coaching of your choice .. Best of luck
