Environment Red book [PT Things ] for Prelims 2021

@NeyawnIs there any reason for naming these 'red' books?

Umm, this was supposed to be the first book. It was Environment so was inspired by the IUCN Red List. The GS 4 book came before so we stuck to red book series.

You have any better ideas ? :(

Always wondered, why "PT" stands for Preliminary exam and NOT Personality Test. There isnt a "T" in Preliminary while PT=Personality Test seems very logical. But, almost all say PT=prelims.


Yes, I have the usage of PT for Prelims. But for past few weeks there were kids continuously messaging me saying, what all to refer for "PT Things". Hence the name.

The word PT for preliminary has come from older JEE format where PT meant "Preliminary Test"

@Neyawn Is this booklet supposed to be a substitute for Shankar IAS book or complementary reading to it?

I noticed that the chapter layout is quite similar (in structure and in content) but it has some additional factoids for Prelims. 

This should be THE Standard Book. :) 


Not additional reading :)

@Neyawn - Sirji, Senior citizens (read 'Purane Aspirants') kya ise padh skte hain for prelims 2021 ? Overkill to nahi hoga?


Nope. 


In trying to cover everything it became a bit bulky. Still beats the existing books .


Plus coverage is good. Got it reviewed by senior citizens of your batch and before.

Asked them will you recommend it to a sibling ( or read yourself )

One particular kid took 15 days , then read it line by line and said - Yes , it’s got everything. 

It has been very minutely reviewed. By some of the best people.

@Neyawn - need to start reading it then. Anyways my SFGs ranking are a bit disappointing. 

Three rules 

1) Try to maintain a certain percentage of marks , given that in online, some unfair means may be used. so ranks may not be the best way. I would recommend between 60-70% of score should be maintained 


2) If in some some paper you get very less marks like 30-40 , make sure you note down topics from which questions are asked. The. Prepare those topics and write the same paper after 2 weeks, keep doing until you score 80% in the paper. Helps “conquer” some weak subjects.


3) Questions for basic concepts can’t be wrong . Create a ruckus ( in your life ) over basic questions getting wrong . You should promise that you will revise not only that topic , but freaking whole chapter from which that question was asked. And never ever in future would you get a question from there.

Hello@Neyawn  sir. I am preparing for UPSC 2022. 

Can we use this book of Environment as a standard book for Prelims and Mains as well?

This is essentials. Mains may require few more topics. This is essentials. Has updated PT stuff focus.
