The final and important question How to prepare for KAS?
The General Knowledge paper in prelims will contain questions from various fields and will be vast in nature. So preparing with any one book is not sufficient. You have to read at least two Kannada, two English news papers, Magazines on a daily basis to gain more knowledge and up-to-date about the current affairs across the globe. With that you need to make important points and notes for revision at the later stage. Don’t depend on the books which comes to market atthe time of exam. Instead of that keep reading the books write now.
Joining the KAS training institutes are another best option. Where you will be given a structured, organized way of preparing for the exams. But before joining such institutions query about the quality of Materials, Teaching staff and resources provided.
