MPSC ESI Exam Prelim and Mains Book List

Welcome to MPSC Material Website. First of all you should know that we have Combined Prelim Exam for 3 posts of Class 3 namely  ESI (Excise Sub Inspector), Tax Assistant and Clerk Typist. and one more thing you should know that is the mains paper 1 will be same for all three posts means the mains paper 1 is also combined. but the paper 2 of mains exam will be separate for each posts. so my conclusion is that you can prepare for all three exams but if you want to prepare only ESI then you should be confident about Mains Paper 2 Preparation. if you are preparing before 1 year of exam then i will suggest you to prepare mains exam syllabus first and then go to the prelim when prelim is near about 6 months etc. particularly you must be prepare prelim and mains before prelim itself. so, after prelim you will focus on accuracy and revision and practice etc.
