Grab the weapons (Booklist)

how to prepare a cost statement
  • As such, there is no single “comprehensive” book for the CAPF exam. All I see is some Jholachhaap publishers’ copypasting chapters from other books meant for Bank PO + add some GK material + give last 3 years’ question papers = market it as SSC/CPF/GPSC guidebook.
  • Such readymade books contain “all-in-one” GS+Aptitude material. So a newcomer thinks he got the jackpot.
  • But In such books, the history, science portion, they directly give you 25-30 MCQs without explaining any theory.
  • Similarly in aptitude portion, they merely list 3-4 formulas, show you 3-4 solved sums with 20 MCQs.
  • Many sincere but naive candidates believe that if they prepare such  books, they’re going to crack the SSC/CPF/IBPS/ State PSC exam. Sorry it doesn’t work like that. Please donot underestimate the level of competition.

so, First gather following:

  1. NCERT and NIOS textbooks (even here, you’ve to do very limited study of specific chapters, as explained in this article. free

  2. Indian Polity by M.Laxmkanth (religiously mugup this book for
10 marks in the exam.)
  • General Studies Manual (for filling up the gaps/topics left in NCERTs + for practice of mock questions) you don’t need to buy latest edition. because static topics (history, geography, science) remain one and same in all edition. So grab second hand/used copy for a cheaper price or borrow it from a friend. Any publication will work: Unique, TMH, Spectrum etc.
  • First we’ll see how to approach static topics (history, geography, science, EnB, economy and polity.) then we’ll see how to approach the current affairs (for IR and Misc.GK). I’m copy pasting the content from my article on CDS strategy because GS/GK/GA syllabus-points are running parallel.

    1: History & Culture

    Update Feb-24-2014:

    for History/culture portion, use the Tamilnadu (TN) State education board books. They’re better than NCERTs. (Free download @bottom).
