4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Guide to Writing skills 27 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While there are couple of other options for solved Mains papers from other publishers, this one stands out. The answers, not exactly model on many occasions, are useful nevertheless to understand the approach of writing mains.
Would definitely recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good One, Worth Buying 11 November 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
after receiving and studying the book, i totally agree with what Amit wrote in his review of the book here. it is definitely a good book. gives an insight on the mains paper and questions asked .. after studying it, one can gauge what it takes and requires to write one's own answers.
But the model answers given are of varying degrees, some are of good quality, but some are not as well!! also, the book does not incorporate in it the changes which were made this year for the mains examination. nevertheless, mains exam are still a month away.
why one should purchase the book?
one can purchase this book to have a look on the questions of the mains exam and the pattern followed by upsc from 1997 till 2012.
Model answers are provided section wise(segregated in sections like geography of India, constitution of India and Indian polity, History of Modern India and the Indian culture etc.)should be taken as a hint to write one's own answers.
