  3. Strategy to demolish CSE in one year I will discuss with you the shortest pathway to demolish CSE o This might help many who are not able to devote more time due to their tight job profiles but an aspirant of CSE Believe me I was not able to devote more time for the preparation due to my profile as a doctor, but this shortest pathway will bring you closer to success

  4. Mental Strength o The very first strategy that matters a lot is the Mental Strength The way you perceive yourself is the key to success The moment you start thinking of CSE, you should believe in yourself, which will surely earn you a place in the history and future The way you perceive yourself is the key to success So believe in yourself is the first strategy to be mastered

  5. Should we take Coaching? The second thing which to discuss here is about the role of coaching which people often asks me o The long debated question is that "Should we take coaching?" I personally did not take any kind of coaching, I prepared for myself o But if you feel that, coaching will earn you something you should definitely go for this

  6. Materials for Reference The next thing is the books used for reference, I hardly used any books except for Lakshmikanth in Polity Shankara's notes for Environment and ecology Niti! Singanya for art and culture I prefer internet over books as it is an ocean and you can find questions, answers, e I prefer internet over books as it is an ocean and you can find questions, answers, opinions and what not!

  7. Continued o I restricted myself to two blog sites : IASBABA and MRUNAL o For economy and geography, I din't consider anything else other than Mrunal Believe me, Mrunal is more than enough if you revise them and understand them properly for this course o I watched the video lectures of Unacademy. in for improving Essay writing skills, understanding of art & culture as well as environmental ecology

  8. Prolonged Myth Myth says that if you don't read India Yearbook you wont clear Prelims, but Believe me I never read India Yearbook even though I bought it twice Shear size of the book made me wonder, If I am going to invest my time in this what will really happen? o Instead I could devote my time on areas that are more concerned to me

  9. Time of your lifetime If you ask me, what I will say from my experience is the time required to demolish this toughest exam is just one whole year of devotion Believe me, you will not be left behind

  10. Method of Preparation People often asks me whether to separate the prelims preparation with that of mains I will say, you should master your optional at first What ever be the optional you decide for yourself, chose it wisely and don't pay heed to anyone's word in this case Don't go by a myth that says this optional gives you more mark and all that

  11. Continued Please tell me the areas that needs improvements in my lectures o This is all about demolishing CSE in one year sure shot
