    But not so much of math. Its all some of the important basic concepts in statistics. its not so much of difficult. Only in time is matter. If they ask annova like problem, it will take half an hour to work out, but no so hard. Practice makes it tooo easy. In my point of view, mgt is not so much vast subjectt.

  • Pawan Kaler

    what are the qualifying marks /percentage for optional subject papers -1and paper-2,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,?????

  • shivika

    ok thanks

  • Swarup Dey

    If I start my journey for ias. Is it good to cover 6 – 10 ncert book of all subjects????please give your valuable suggestions…..

  • Assassin

    i do not mean that xyz optional is good or bad…go through syllabus of both..look some past papers…and get a general idea about subject….obviously the subject with which you are more comfortable will be the best…if indeed you feel so about sociology go for it.

  • shivika

    so you mean to say sociology is not good optional, i thought i can relate sociology better then management therefore i have decided this one as well as managment paper 2 having 80% numerical and m nt good enough in numerical this is also a reason.

  • Assassin

    @shi@disqus_ESb0IvxCz8:disqus go for management optional if you had studied management courses well during your PG…at the end of the day , do remember that your optional cannot be an averagely prepared subject…you have to go for kill here..if you need good rank..decide accordingly

  • krishna dubey

    You can stick to the older edition. No problem.

  • curious atom

    Kindly compare spectrum history 2016 edition with 2015 edition. New edition contains many new topics and even content of older chapters are slightly modified. I am in dilemma whether follow the new edition or stick to older one.
