    • Yes to an extent actually, when ever you are preparing a topic for example public health , reading 2014 Feb edition cover story will help you in understanding the topic basics clearly.

      Yojana cover story is most important, all other articles will act as value addition,so you can read just the cover stories(the1st article) and ignore the rest.

  1. Hi Sir,

    Can u guide me for the Year Book 2015. There are lots of Chapter and Little time. I want u to direct me for Specific Chapter of Year Book 2015, that can deliver my strength in Prelim as well as Mains

    • Hello Shahnawaz Mrunal and Palak mathur have written posts on what to cover in India year book quite comprehensively and frankly don’t spend much time on IYB, the above strategies work for this year’s book also. I repeat spending more time on IYB is not advised.

  2. Hello! Sir. I am just a beginner to prepare for upsc & a big confusion is about optional subject. I am a medical graduate & want to keep medical science as optional but many suggests it very tough & lengthy….geography or history should be the option……pls help me to decide….

    • all that matters to choose a optional in upsc is “interest”, not length of syllabus or considering some subjects as more scoring ……just go with your strength as optional has a very big role to play in selection and u have to devote lot of time to master your optional , you can only devote your time when you have interest and love for a particular subject

  3. Dear Sir,

    I am 26 and working in MNC.
    I have make my mind to go for this prestigious exam but is confused from where to start.
    Have to start from scratch so please guide me and suggest how I can do it in this limited period of time.Please suggest me a stratergy and books for reference so that I may not get misguided reading several reviews.

    • Shekhar,
      still it’s must as we can not live with only one option,hard copy is life.
      Rs. Ten is hardly any cash,so even online reader like me picks up 5 numbers to present to schools located ports in rural area.

  4. It’s really nice to find “Y” online while sailing around the globe,
    It also gives fresh breeze,from motherland,
    Thanks to web team

  5. sir.
    I can’t remember the dates, persons newly appointed, years of history incidents, and so many problems regarding with current affairs, please guide me in same case.

    • Revision is the only way we can remember things in long run ,UPSC will not ask trivial facts, focus more on concepts than facts. Just follow any 2 newspapers.

  6. the march 2015 yojana link is not opening up..plz check..also, could u please upload april onwards editions? thanks..

  11. sir, please upload december 2015 and january 2016 issues of yojana and kurukshetra. thats a humble request. regard. keep up the good work. god bless you.

  12. Sir,
    You suggested to avoid reading Economic Times , but what if one’s optional subject is economics. I mean there are some advanced economic specific events asked in optional paper which are not discussed in The Hindu or Yojana but are discussed in Economic Times. So what to do.

    • hi, I am sure optional students will read additional paper according to their syllabus, this suggested articles is for completer beginners, just to give them an idea in the first weeks of their preparation.

  13. Hi..Are you going to upload Feb 2016 Yojana? If so, when? I do not live in India and I cannot go to the markets and buy. It would of great help if you can keep uploading the Yojanas each month.

  14. Hello Sir
    This is Apurva . I am having a difficulty preparing for Geography and Modern History. I will be giving the 2017 attempt. Should I be taking out notes at this stage? Or should I be only reading the NCERTs? If yes,then any specific strategy to remember the events or things in both the subjects. Please help.

    • Hi as far as prelim is considered Spectrum for history is itself like a short notes, you have to keep revising and solve old papers , UPSC stopped asking trivial dates and stuff, but you need to see old papers to get an idea about the questions. Coming to geography 11 ans 12 th ncert books you have to read fully, revise. see old papers, read the chapter then try to solve all questions from that chapter, this will help a lot in longrun. Hope this helps πŸ™‚
