Joseph Said:

Please help me get some good material to prepare for the IAS (Mains) exam - "General Studies" paper.?

We Answered:

I know about a wonderful book for this purpose. The book's name is Economic Affairs, by RN Gupta. I bought it last year from Delhi, and I give all credits to this book for my success in the GS paper of IAS Mains.

Luckily, I could find Mr. Gupta's phone number also printed on it. This is: 9910078893. He was kind enough to even guide me personally.
