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 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Updated – Unlike pdf/image mind maps, IE Mind maps will be periodically updated by us according to the changing needs of the exam.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.

Is it free?

IE Mindmaps are premium content available for members. Some Mindmaps with suffix [FREE] are free which you can open as samples. With membership, you can access all Static Mindmaps as well as Current articles (with mindmaps) for integrated preparation.

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.

  • 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.
