    hello aspirants, hope your preparations are in the full swing…. i am also going to appear next year so i need some help..plsz suggest me …
    i am thinking of taking plitical science as optional and i have started with ncerts for gs… so my question is should i also start reading political science right from now or should i focus only on gs…. i am confused as it is making my time management very cumbersome…. also after reading ncerts for polity and economics i have started m laxmikant and ramesh singh for respective subjects and i have kept targets but unable to complete them and also i want to make notes from them but it becomes very difficult for me as i think if i would make notes then i would not be able to complete to my targets and at the same time i know that note making is very essential? so what to do? how to manage it? by doing so it is also happening that i am not able to revise what i have read….
    Also one more thing mrunal sir should i read your economy lectures after i complete my ramesh singh or right from now….
    please i request all of you to guide me…. thanks in advance….
