#HaryanaPCS #Booklist prelim
Syllabus of Haryana PCS is similar to Syllabus of UPSC Prelim .Here merit is based on GS+CSAT too.excpt they had mentioned general mental ability in both GS and CSAT .
As this is first paper on this pattern you may expect exam on two lines :-
As per UPSC Prelim pattern as they given in detail in syllabus .which means understanding of topic wil be more important then facts.
2ndly paper may be as per Factual based as its previous paper of GS .
So what should be your strategy .
Here is what i would like to suggest you .
Follow all basic books as per upsc syllabus .
History: – From 6th to 8th new NCERTs or Old NCERTs of Ancient medieval and modern India (avialable in market )
