[Studyplan] Book Lists for Optional Subjects of UPSC Civil Services Mains Examination (UPSC CSE) and other State PSC Exams.

While looking for study materials, many questions asked.like.
Can i prepare for UPSC exam while doing job? - 
You can also prepare while doing your job, but it depends on what kind of job you are doing. As you have mentioned nothing about your job profile, please do think again before quitting it. If you have doubts with that you can always get it cleared ;-)

Now coming to guidance for preparation, well in brief you will have to follow this trend
Zero: Choose your optional subject and preferably study it daily for an hour or two. You can even rigorously prepare it for whole month or two and then switch to
next step. But dont hurry, in doubt always get it cleared. 
1st: Read NCERT's
2nd: Now comes the Role of Standard Books
3rd: Test Series, so that you can assess/judge your performance till now.
4th: Practice CSAT, this is to be done parallel with step 1, 2 & 3.
5th: Start mains answer writing practice and essay writing

7th: Repeat 5 and 6 till you are sure that you can write relevant answers on any topic asked.

8th: Probably within 2 months, you will have Prelims 2016 ---> attempt it, go for mains and then you have the interview.
