    hello sir,

    The UPSC PORTAL IAS books are quite famous..you can opt for them.
    The main thing you need to crack IAS exam is to have general knowledge,spontanity, confidence and good subject knowledge.
    You can select any subject as per your intrest and idea on that particular subject..but strictly there no specific subjects to choose based on ur previous stream..
    So select those you are intrested in.
    You have to work really hard to pass IAS exam..

    Gud luck!!
