How it will benefit you?

  1. Big picture – You can take in the bigger picture quickly and easily at a glance with a mindmap.
  2. Better recollection – The visual nature of mindmaps allows for easier recall.
  3. Simplification – Mindmaps allow for the simplification of complex relationships between topics.
  4. 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.
  5. Quick revision – Every point is organized and linked in a way that enables quick revision.
  6. Creativity – Your creativity will get boosted as you can get big-picture easily with mind maps.
  7. Interactive – IE Mindmaps are interactive i.e., you can collapse, expand, navigate around and search for 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.
  8. Updated – Unlike pdf/image mind maps, IE Mind maps will be periodically updated by us according to the changing needs of the exam.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.

A great way to retain the subject with crisp points

A great way to retain the subject with crisp points. A single book strategy for a subject ends up in a score around the cutoff. In some perspective, “Too much materials seems to be dangerous”. Studying more and more books of same subject also leads to confusion at the last minute. IE’s approach of balancing

Best strategy for a beginner

Great content. The best strategy for a beginner would be to go through the mindmaps offered by iasexpress for the overview of concepts and build upon it as a base with additional reading. Their content makes it easy to retain information with the structured presentation. 10/10 would DEFINITELY recommend.

          Currently I am following only insights daily current affairs and the hindu editorial.But it takes a lot of time to read daily current affairs and editorial and after reading them making their notes.I have just visited your website and found it very unique and interesting in the way you have provided mind maps and some articles.And also the way you’ve described the three pillars on how to retain any information for long time is quite interesting and I found it very useful.I am also preparing for civils since june 2019 and want to appear in next year prelim’s.It will be my first attempt and I want to qualify it but I am very confused with time management as my 3 to 3.5 hours goes only to reading and making notes of daily CA from insights as it provides CA from the hindu,the IE,sometimes from down to earth and pib.I just want to reduce my time for current content by maximum 2 hours.Can you suggest me regarding this matter?

          • Santhosh Kumar

            Thanks for appreciating our work.

            Regarding your query about current affairs, my suggestion will be to read and revise IAS EXPRESS articles regularly as we focus on important topics with in-depth analysis & quick revision. It is more than enough for mains.

            For prelims, IAS EXPRESS articles will be useful to solve certain difficult or analytical current affairs questions. You can read Hindu/gktoday/vision(for coverage) along with iasexpress articles (for analysis/quick revision of important topics). We will start our own initiative of covering all monthly current affairs for prelims in an interactive mindmap format for quick reading/revision (but cannot say when).

            You can read editorials if you want to improve your comprehension and language.

            Always take notes in a mindmap format for better understanding and quick revision before the exam.

            Following this strategy will radically boost your current affairs coverage in quick time as well as your confidence.

            I hope that I’ve answered your query.
