How to study NCERT books for the UPSC Examination

NCERT books form the basic study in most of the subject preparation of the UPSC examination.


  • Simple to understand the basic concepts clearly.
  • The tables are easy to memorize the facts.
  • The contents are highly reliable.

Must-Read Books for the UPSC Exam:

How to read :

  • Read by keeping your UPSC Syllabus in hand. Study subject-wise rather than grade-wise completion.
  • First time just read the book and understand the concepts
  •  Before proceeding to the second read, go through the previous year’s question papers to get a glimpse of the questions asked in the topic.
  • Now in the second read, highlight the important ones.
  • Make notes in the third read
  • Make sure you reduce your time each time you read the same topic.

Notes from NCERTs:

  • t is recommended to take notes as per the topic in the syllabus. Divide notes only as per the syllabus topics.
  • Each subject and topic needs a different note-making style to make it easy to remember.
  • Like, many topics in Geography need Mnemonics, most of the history notes need a flow chart with simple factual data in them, etc.
  •  So maintain notes according to the need.
  • Rephrase the notes in such a way that you need not look back to your book again for the same topic after a year or so.
  • Also, use digital notes like Evernote, etc whenever needed. This will ease your preparation.


  • Never study without your syllabus!
  • Do not divert or get attracted to unnecessary topics from any books
