Top positive review
The best collection of previous years solved papers of UPSC CSE.
18 September 2018
I got it for Rs.299. The printed price is Rs. 500.
1. The book contains previous years UPSC CSE prelims solved papers from 1995 to 2018. This provides you with the opportunity to understand how the pattern of questions has shifted from 1995 to 2018.
2. Except for 2018, the questions have been given topic-wise. This saves you some extra work in finding the areas of the questions.
3. The solutions have been given at the end of the chapter. So if you want to test your knowledge, you can try to solve the questions and then check the answers given at the end of that particular chapter. The answers have not been given just after the questions. So it makes it more useful.
4. Topic-wise essay papers have also been provided for 1993-2017. This is an additional bonus.
5. Topic-wise mains papers have also been provided for 2013-2017. Again an additional bonus.
6. There has also been a chapter on planning for CSE. This is an excellent chapter which can help the beginners a lot in strategy building.
7. The answers are very reliable and almost all the answers are correct.
8. Fully up to date. Till date (18 Sep 2018, UPSC prelims of 2018 & UPSC mains 2017 have been conducted and this book contains all these papers too.)
9. Excellent printing quality.
10. The font size is also big enough to read it comfortably.
11. The page quality is excellent.
1. The Prelims papers of 2018 have not been given topic-wise. This is the latest papers and perhaps that is the reason to not provide it topic-wise.
Final comment- If you are planning to purchase a previous year papers book for UPSC CSE, this is the best available book in the market. You can go for it without even thinking twice.
