Current affairs | general awareness | general knowledge section is as important as any other section in almost all government job competitive examinations. To improve our overall awareness there are lots of options like internet, newspapers, magazines, etc. However, there are very few options for exam specific preparation. The most striking part of this section is that there cannot be any prescribed format to prepare oneself for it. Fortunately, there are some wonderful books which can help you to sail through these competitive examinations. I am listing the most trusted books on current affairs and general awareness below.
