Indian History

N.C.E.R.Ts have always been major part of Civil Services preparation. Whether you are preparing for UPSC or any state services exam. But the problem is on average an aspirant spends 3 months of his/her precious time on reading and making notes from these N.C.E.R.T books.

On standard basis, all aspirants read NCERT Class VI to Class XII for all subjects. But the problem with this reading practice it that 70% of the space is occupied by examples, stories among other things which are designed to cater to a younger audience. For a Civil Services aspirant, this is a waste.

The gist is designed in such a manner that it will take minimum amount of your time to build a strong foundation for each subject. For your convenience, we would recommend you buy the entire NCERT stash from the combo section of our bookstore or if you find anyone specific subject to be weak, you can go for that NCERT Gist.

These books will help you solve more than 60% of questions from previous year papers of all Union and State Services exam.
