What is the APPSC AEE general studies preparation strategy?

Best books, online coaching, and preparation strategy to prepare for APPSC AEE General Studies.

General Awareness is one of the most important sections in APPSC AEE exams. In order to prepare for the same, you need some good books and professional coaching. The combination of both can help you attain the unmatched excellence in General Awareness.

An extensive study is required for preparing GS Prelims. Start your preparation with NCERT books of 10th and 12th standard on various subjects like History, Geography, Polity, Science, Indian Foreign policy & International Relation etc. and then go through other books recommended for G.S. It will be better to prepare G.S. mains first and then for Prelim. In Preliminary exam, multiple choice questions are asked and these can be answered on the basis of facts you have remembered while reading the books on various subjects. One should also try to develop the capacity of answering multiple choice questions as quickly as possible because you have only limited time. This can be achieved only through rigorous practice.
