    Disclaimer: – We don’t promote any of the above-mentioned books. Students are encouraged to survey the market before buying any book.
    Note: – We always encourage new authors with better books. If you happen to be one, feel free to contact us, we will go through your book, and if we like it we will surely mention it on our website.

    Current – affairs resources: –

    First thing first. Read newspaper daily. You might not like to make notes out of it but there is much more to learn from it than just the news. While reading editorials pay attention on how the writer has divided his editorial and learn the flow of writing from them. This will help you in Mains. You will also learn new words, thus, helping you build vocabulary.

    There are many magazines in the market that you can look at, but we recommend you to try KPS Institute’s Monthly magazines. We are working day and night to make them better with new learning features.

    Practice questions to learn about exam pattern: –

    For this you need to buy two resources – Previous year paper booklets (Both Prelims and Mains) and a Test series.

    Previous year paper booklets will help you learn about the exam pattern and types of questions that are being asked in the paper.

    In Test – Series we recommend you to check out KPS Prelims Test series for Prelims and Mains. While not sounding too promotionary, we would like to tell you that we were one of the highest scoring institutes in UPSC Prelims 2018 exam and Himachal Pradesh Civil Services Preliminary Exam 2018. This makes our test series most dynamic and aligned to the civil services examination. We have also managed to achieve great results in other state services exams. Hence, one test – series will be a great solution for all your practice needs.

    Our test series will also help you to stay ahead of time by providing you with a timetable to follow for each test with details of topics to be covered in the exam.
