Default PLEASE help me in finding good books

Asalam-u-alikum,
Dear members please guide me in finding good books for CSS.
There are number of books in the market and that creates lots of confusion.
FPSC recommends too many book for a single subject, they often suggest 30 to 40 books for each subject. 1st of all it is impossible to get all the recommended books. Secondly, no one can study 30 books for one subject (PRACTICALLY). Thirdly, if we had to choose few books from those recommended books then we are not sure about the best book among them and which book contain complete syllabus.
its been one week i am searching books but still standing at point zero undecided. I cannot join any academy due to my job hours.
Please Please Please help me and suggest me books for css 2020, maximum 2,3 books for each subject.
My optional subjects are as follows:

1)Accountancy and Auditing 200
2)Public Administration 100
3)Gender Studies 100
4)US history 100
5)Criminology 100

Waalaikumsalam

I can suggest for Accounting. This is a 200 mark subject with 5-6 sections unrelated to each other so you need at least one book for each section.

My suggestions
1) The book by world times is good, has only a few errors and covers the whole syllabus. So I would suggest you to definitely get that.

2) Sohail Afzal for Cost Accounting is really good. You may get its key also.

3) Muazzam for Income Tax. This section requires extensive practice.

4) Van Horne for Finance

5) Books by Pakistani/Indian authors for Business and Auditing sections since these topics require mainly basic understanding and memorisation.

I have suggested it for accounting. As I said, although the book has some shortcomings, it does cover the whole syllabus for Accounting (P1 and P2) as itís written specifically for CSS.

My point is that this single book is enough for a decent attempt. However, to get solid marks in Accounting you will have to follow different books for each section since the different sections in the syllabus are completely unrelated to each other.

I hope I have made myself clear.

Furthermore, I think you can use WT books for other optional subjects as well to develop a basic understanding of a subject. However, you must go the extra mile and study at least 1 other book for each subject. Remember that any book that is not written specifically for CSS is unlikely to cover the complete syllabus for a subject. Candidates nowadays also prefer using the internet to search topics and make notes.
