As the Civil Services Exam and IFS interview dates are coming closer, the number of visitors in my blog is increasing like anything. It has crossed 8000 mark. And the most active posts always show CSE and IFS interview posts at top place. Well, it’s good. At least my experience is helping some aspirants.
Many a people keep on asking me as to how to prepare for IFS interview. Generally these queries come by way of e-mail. For the benefit of one and all, I would just give here the list of references which are instrumental in the IFS interview. These are as follows:-
- Book by Sagariya. (Name is probably Forests and Forestry by NBT). Each and everything of this book. Try to remember important jargon related to forestry sector.
- Ministry of environment and forests website. Report of National Forest Commission. It is a comprehensive document, written in lucid style. Extensive reading of this report is highly recommended.
- Try to think about the service and develop interest in flora and fauna. Even though it will not develop overnight, still you can try to surf internet and see discovery channel for generating interest. The interest is a key criterion for selection. They check whether it is just other service for you or do you really have a passion.
- Scientific names of important species.
- Environment chapter of Spectrum’s Science and technology book.
Rest I am unable to recollect now. I will put that up here if anything comes to my mind. Best wishes to you all.
