What are the must read magazines and articles for IAS preparation?
Thanks for A2A.
For different sections you can follow different magazines, they are not very bulky so you can easily cover them :-
- If you are asking about current affairs then you can follow VAJIRAM or VISION magazines. + any PIB monthly compilation available online. ( These are hardly around 100 pages + if you read the hindu nicely , you will not feel difficulty covering these within 10 days )
- For Extra :- YOJANA is must, because it’s language will improve your answer writing too. & If you have optional related to governance/pub ad. Go through KURUKSHETR also. ( Both are hardly around 50–60 pages, so can be covered within a week). These two will cover govt initiatives in detail.
- I would not suggest you to burden up with a lot of magazines. I think above 3 combinations are more than enough. But if there are any other magazines you can have a look at , then they are SCIENCE REPORTER & EPW. BUT only if you have time. At last you can arrange their summaries to look at. ensure you cover atleast 1 current affairs magazine + pib + yojana ( for kurukshetr you can take up summaries available online )
So every month ,within 3 weeks you can cover all these if you read some pages daily ( 15–20 ) which is not a tough task. And in the last week you can revise all.
