  • Friends, I will be going for my first attempt in 2015. I graduated this year only from Commerce & will be taking Public Admn in Civil Service Examination. My question is, should I take coaching now or should I go for it later? I have no prior knowledge of Public Admn but I have been reading The Hindu regularly for past 2 years & am totally updated with the current affairs. Help please.

  • Hello friends,
    This is a great thread to keep oneself motivated throughout the rigorous preparation.

    Little Info about me

    Graduated in May 2013, joined Vajiram for GS in June
    Optional- Mathematics

    Have been keeping up with the classes and regular reading of newspapers since June. But I feel time has come to shift the gears and become little more sincere and consistent. So, would be very happy to discuss and share opinions on various issues/subjects.
    It would be nice if everyone can update whatever part of syllabus one has been reading or finished.

    Starting with me, apart from classes I have somewhat finished reading
    1. Indian History and World History primarily from coaching notes-materials and basic books like Bipin Chandra.
    2. And a preliminary reading of Laxmikanth and Sriram material.

    Firstly, I am just not able to read Yojana and Kurukshetra find them quite boring. Have just marked the articles, which might be useful at a later stage. Secondly, another thing which is bothering me is self made notes from newspapers. I have just not been able to maintain any notes as they then consume lot of time, I just cut and keep few important articles. Thirdly, as far as economy is concerned I find Ramesh Singh too vast to read, am more dependent on classes and regular revision of class notes.

    I think I have written a lot. Would be very happy to see some suggestions or ways to improve.
    And yeah, a very happy and a prosperous diwali to everyone.
