    There are a number of books which can be consulted to prepare for UPSC exam, but some are really comprehensive and updated.
    In my opinion and to the best of my knowledge,Subhkamna Publications is an experience publication house for competitive exams like Indian Civil Services and other private career opportunities prompted us to give a comprehensive books on various entrance exams and opportunities available for the Indian youngsters seeking for administrative civil services.Our Books specialize in guiding Indian Civil services Aspirants.Our Entrance Exams Books mainly supported by experienced persons in the field of civil services.So,you should purchase the required books as soon as possible to start preparation.

    There are lots of books for UPSC exam as you not mentioned exam name.
    Because for NDA books are different and CDA ,IAS books are different.
    But in generally General Knowledge Books are very helpful and you can also try for TIMES magazine which also have many good things to study for IAS and IPS exams.
