UPSC Books for Prelims & Mains
Systematic preparation for the UPSC exam should be done comprehensively. Both the Prelims Syllabus and the Mains Syllabus complement each other. Thus, the book list remains the same. However, based on previous years’ question papers, one must try to understand which topics of the same subject are important for prelims and which are important for mains. Nevertheless, a sound understanding of the subject with good conceptual clarity is the sine qua non for both stages of the exam.
The above booklist is in no way set in stone. One can always alter this with the resources one gets from trusted sources. However, over the years, many successful candidates have used them to prepare for this exam.
It must be noted that aspirants must keep their resources limited. It is always advisable to read the same resource multiple times rather than reading multiple resources hastily. Of course, selective reading of multiple resources is always welcome to gain conceptual clarity on certain challenging topics.
Simultaneously, the aspirant must always regularly read the newspaper and try to relate the current happenings with the fundamentals he/she is reading in standard books.
