APSC Books

To crack any exam books are the prime source of accruing knowledge and keeping a book is a good practice ,the more you read the more you are advancing towards your goal. You can find 1000’s of ebooks online and are easily available in the internet but from my personal experience I recommend you to always avoid from an screen free zone i.e keeping away yourself from smart phone,laptops etc if you are really serious in your goal and the best way is to focus on the standard books you choose. If you don’t have buy it from any source but these books must be selectively bought and more emphasis should be on NCERT . The list of the most important books which are recommend by toppers, along with some free downloads of  ebooks are given in the below link.
