How it will benefit you?
- Big picture – You can take in the bigger picture quickly and easily at a glance with a mindmap.
- Better recollection – The visual nature of mindmaps allows for easier recall.
- Simplification – Mindmaps allow for the simplification of complex relationships between topics.
- Structured – Just like each and every object in the world has a structure, a topic that you are reading also has a structure. But the traditional paragraph based reading cannot show you the structure unique to each topic.
- Quick revision – Every point is organized and linked in a way that enables quick revision.
- Creativity – Your creativity will get boosted as you can get big-picture easily with mind maps.
- Interactive – IE Mindmaps are interactive i.e., you can collapse, expand, navigate around and search for a particular topic inside the mindmap. This provides for the active learning process and you never get bored. It is not possible in image or PDF mindmaps. You can read it with any device (Mobile/Tablet/PC). No software is needed.
- Lecture + Self-study – As mindmaps are interactive and each node is opened by clicking them = it seems like someone actually teaching you (= more focus) & you will also get the same efficiency as that of self-study in terms of learning/retention.
- Updated – Unlike pdf/image mind maps, IE Mind maps will be periodically updated by us according to the changing needs of the exam.
- Question paper-based – Contents in the mind maps were prepared based on solving previous years question papers (both prelims and mains) = high chance of success in the examination.
- Crack GS (Prelims & Mains) – General Studies section of the exam could be easily cleared with IE Mindmaps. Around 85-90% of UPSC Prelims Paper 1 static questions could be solved with IE Mindmaps.

Tips for Desktop/Laptop Users
- For expanding all nodes at the same time, click "Transform" => "Expand All" at the bottom of the page.
- For expanding all nodes in a particular topic, then click on that topic and then click "Transform" => "Focus".
- This option is only for PC users because it is difficult to click and expand in PC compared to touch and expand in mobile phone/tablet. Moreover, the mindmap software that we use, allows the "Transform" option only for PC users.
