Topicwise preparation of Mains
Hello, I need suggestions on material which covers topic-wise mains syllabus. With little enquiry, I got to know about
- Vision Value added material
- Shubhra ranjan notes for GS
- Forum supplementary material.
If anyone can suggest anyone of these or some other resource, it would be of great help.
@Master in my opinion stick to one material and prepare that holistically
Make noted of every keywords
I think no body Provide every topic material
If you are an absolute beginner refer to Insights guide to GS(I don’t remember the title exactly)
It explains each and every line of syllabus with source and few important links and pdfs to complement it
Though its 2015’s content,pretty helpful for beginners
@ManchesterUnited Kash beginner hota! This was my second attempt and not written mains yet. So I started consolidating my Mains preparation (which I did not yet).
@Master pick up the vision vam material and start studying make notes from that
read vision 365 and update the static material with the ca
i think this will be fine for making topic wise notes
let wait for others view
@AzadHindFauz how u made notes and when in 1st reading or 2nd
and every single document u cover of vam or just selected ones
@Raillife I had very limited time. So, I approached the material with this question- 'What is relevant to be put in the answer sheet? '
I made notes in the first reading and revised the same 3-4 times before mains. I didn't burden myself from overload of information. I just picked 4-5 points for every topics and tried extrapolating ideas from them. I think it worked. But, I'd not advise this method. Now, I'll do topicwise study given the time I've at my disposal.
@AzadHindFauz Were you able to complete paper with these concise notes?
@Master Yes. I had revised the themes/sub-topics given in syllabus thoroughly. I had 4-5 points for each one of them. Once I deciphered the theme of the question, it was easy. But, the questions were more application-based in mains'19. So, it took me some time to connect the dots while writing the answers.
Hence, I missed 2 questions in GS3 and 1 each in GS1, GS2.
But, I also believe it could be because of lack of enough practice for mains. This was my first attempt. I couldn't devote much time for answer writing.
