    Hey,
    Its really nice that you have thought of your career straight from now on.
    But from 3rd semester is a little too early to decide your career path.
    However,You can very well start with the elementary books that you will be needing to know and get the feel of kind of questions asked.
    You can enroll for the postal courses of various coaching institutes like
    TIME
    IMS
    etc which will provide you will all the relevant study material along with the classes that will help you clear your doubts.
    You should get in a habit of reading newspaper at least for 30 mins daily with a motive to learn at least 5 new words daily.
    I will advice you to read editorial section of THE HINDU and a magzine of your choice to develop the reading habit.

    Hope this helps you.
    All the best..!!
