I have also found one interesting thing. CSS is not about reading K. Ali, Sohail Bhatti or Mazharul Haq, it's about
1. Quality text
2. Balanced Approach
3. Paper Presentation ( good handwriting, quotations, facts and figures, diagrams, tables etc.
4. Analysis, lots of it, argument, counter argument and then conclusion.
6. Prepare Notes from Recommended books, don't go after Sarfraz Bajwa or Sohail Bhatti or others. Most of these books written are useless.
For Example, Last year I was reading K. Ali, History of Indo - Pak. It's a bunch of lies and it's apologetic of Muslim conquerors. I would be better if you could read Lane Poole, Ishwari Prasad and the juxtapose their opinions and crystallize reality.
Read Indus Saga, it's a brilliant book in a sense that it gives an idea upon how paper should be attempted and notes created.
So everyone, please understand that reading local authors, or exam cram series won't give you analytical thinking, for that you need to have thorough understanding and reading from quality text books.
