How to prepare for TNPSC Group 2 exam and suggested books(updated list)

TNPSC conducts group 2 exam every year to recruit revenue assistant,Sub registrar, Probation officer, Junior employment officer, Assistant section officer,Supervisor and Senior inspector cadre. Its syllabus is of Degree standard. Group 2 has three stages of exam: Preliminary exam,Main exam and interview.Nature of questions asked in Group 2 Preliminary exam is substantially changed.Don’t worry!!! .So here is a updated guide to help you prepare with the latest syllabus of the exam.Lets begin!!!!

1.STICK TO THE SYLLABUS

First of all you should be thorough with the syllabus. It enables you to concentrate on only desired subjects. While preparing anything for TNPSC Group 2 always stick to the syllabus.Take a copy of the syllabus. Always have it in your hand while preparing.For those who still don’t have syllabus, download the syllabus from this link and take printout. http://www.tnpsc.gov.in/syllabus/new_syllabus_combined_civil_services_II_updated.pdf

2.FOLLOW NEWS REGULARLY

Most important news such as rocket launch, tournament winners in sports , landmark judgments ,new laws,new books and its authors, person who got awards (both national and international), govt schemes and policies, Science and technology news, Places and persons in news,economic news and India’s foreign affairs are asked in Group 1 exam.Don’t worry I will update current affairs regularly in this site.You can be on track by checking this site regularly.

3.PRACTICE MORE APTITUDE QUESTIONS 

Basically, you wont find any time management issues in Group 4 exams in all other sections except aptitude. In my personal experience i have seen many aspirants completely ignore this section in preparation. No or little preparation will not fetch you good score in this section. You should spend at least 2 weeks. Believe me, you can learn everything in 2 weeks. For this section i recommend Quantitative aptitude by R.S.Agarwal and A modern approach to non verbal reasoning by  R.S.Agarwal.

4.CONCENTRATE ON GRAMMAR AND LITERATURE PORTION OF ENGLISH/TAMIL

English/ Tamil will give you 150 marks.You should follow rule no 1 for maximizing your score in literature section. Don’t read unnecessary lessons and poems.There are lots of poem and lesson which are not included in the syllabus. So, be careful. For English grammar section, i recommend wren and martin book for grammar and practice SSLC and HSC questions. For Tamil grammar, there are lots of book and the best one will be updated soon.

5.WORK HARD.DON’T CONTAIN YOURSELF TO IMPORTANT TOPICS.

Apart from aptitude and current affairs, there is General studies which includes subjects such as history, Geography, Science, Economics and Civics. Suggested books for each subject is given below. Study 6th to 12th NCERT and books thoroughly as it not only teaches the basic but also many questions is directly asked from the books.

6.TAKE MOCK TESTS-SUCCESS IS ABOUT CORRECTING THE MISTAKE

Take at least 3 mock/practice tests. In this website i will update a mock test soon. Take that test,take your time to analyse your strength and weakness in various subjects.  After you analyse your test result, you may have known your weakness tat may be anything from language to civics. After this stage take sectional tests which is also available in our website. Remember: Not just taking many tests will not make you score more. Learning the mistakes and correcting will make you score more.

7.REFER PREVIOUS YEAR QUESTIONS

Although it may sound like an old advice, it will help you in understanding the syllabus.Warning: Don’t go beyond 2013 because before that period we had a different syllabus. However you can still study general studies from that question papers. I will update the questions papers soon.

SUGGESTED BOOKS

1. 6th to 12th TN and NCERT books

2.Quantitative aptitude by R.S.Agarwal and A modern approach to non verbal reasoning by  R.S.Agarwal
