    Re: Suggest me a few books to prepare for CSAT(Civil Service Aptitude Test)?

    Civil Service Aptitude Test(CSAT) is to be introduced from this year onwards
    as a change in the pattern of Civil services examination. Earlier the first
    stage of Civil services examination was known as the Preliminary exams.
    From this year onwards , the first stage of the Civil services will be known
    as Civil Service Aptitude Test(CSAT).

    CSAT test the candidates skills in sections like mental ability, Quantitative
    aptitude, Logical reasoning, Data interpretation, analytical ability,Comprehension
    skills etc. apart from the regular General studies section and current affairs.
    So the paper will have 2 sections as follows :-

    - Paper 1 which will test the General awareness of the candidate.

    - Paper 2 which will test various skills like mental ability, Quantitative
    aptitude, Logical reasoning, Data interpretation, analytical ability,Comprehension
    skills.

    Books which are recommended for the above sections are as follows :-

    For Paper one you can refer following books :-

    - NCERT books in subjects like History, Geography, Civics etc.
    - General Studies Manual by Tata McGraw Hill which is really a
    good book for this section.
    - The Pearson CSAT Manual
    - Manorama Year Book which is refered by many toppers.

    For paper two you can refer folloing books :-

    - Quantitative Aptitude By RS Agrawal
    - Non Verbal Reasoning by RS Agrawal
    - Cracking CSAT by Arihant Publication which will cover the
    entire syllabus for CSAT paper two.
