[Preparation] Books for Final Preparation of CIC B.A.Hons. Entrance DU 2020

The tentative date for the examination is 21.06.2018. That leaves you with around a month for preparation.

Less than a month left now.

Now, your sources should be LIMITED, and focus should be on solving as many questions + papers as you can.

Note – These are the recommended books by the students of B.A.Honours I consulted, and are in CIC.
But, using these does not guarantee success.

As written on the website, there is no specific prescribed syllabus for the entrance examination. The written entrance test of two hours duration will be Multiple Choice Questions on –

  • General Awareness
  • Current Affairs
  • General Knowledge
  • Communication Skills (English/Hindi)
  • Logical Reasoning and Analytical Ability

The paper is mainly General Knowledge based, with focus on logic skills. Going through the previous year papers thoroughly, will help you a lot. The paper is very generic.

Previous Year Papers of CIC B.A.Honours Entrance Exam

General Knowledge

General Knowledge By Lucent

One of my senior Vivek Gaurav pursuing LL.B. from Faculty of Law, University of Delhi recommended this book. He advice – “You should study Geography, History, Constitution & Polity, few questions of psychology/sociology, general science (focus on only biology if you have less time).”

General Knowledge 2019

This book is more detailed, with significant current affairs and provides subject wise coverage of relevant factual information divided in 6 sections.

Current Affairs

Go through the top recent news in the last one year, which can be covered from newspapers.

Logical Reasoning and Analytical Ability

I’ve gone through some previous papers, and the reasoning part is easy, and scoring. You can refer to a common book for reasoning and analytical ability.
