Thumbs up Ikram Rabbani is enough

Aslaam o Alaikum All,

Bunko has said the rite words.
Ikram Rabbani book is more then enough you just have to put a little effort to make conclusion of every topic you read in your own style to be different among others.

But to clear written is not every thing.
So to get into toppers i must recommend you guys to please do read I.H.Qureshi book as well as it contains maximum quotes which butters the checker.

I have made the key dates file with events from Ikram Rabbani book any one intrested to consult can ask me on my personal id saboorthakur@gmail.com
Ill send the soft copy to avoid your time loss on making n craming that.

Keep us(means all) in prayers.

Hope all of you are fine.
Here i would like to share few things with you. First prepare every topic keeping in view the time given in paper for a particular question. Time given is too short to jot down a topic completely. Moreover, it is common trend that two questions are combined into one.
One book gives very few qoutations and facts and figures. So go for multiple books. Make your own notes comprising the very important and essential points of a topic.
Let me give you an example.
If the question regarding partition of bengal is asked; what you need to know is:
1.Its area before partition.
2.Its total population and population of hindus and muslims.
3.Is there any example where any province had been partitioned on administrative basis and which caused no stir among hindus.
4. Causes of partition.
5. At least 3 authentic qoutations abouts its partition.
6.What were the impacts(output in fact and figures) for example literacy rate, economic output etc.
7.What were the movements and their motives from hindu side.
8. What were the solid reasons behind its cancellation
9. What were the after effects when it was cancelled.
10. what effects it put on history.
Prepare notes which give answer to all these questions at least.
We all know that Hindus were against muslims and their interests, so there is no need to include such things in your notes, These things are commonly understood. Go for difference. Difference will give you numbers.

Mufakhar Adeel (2nd position,2006) and Dr. Khalil (2nd position 2007) both reiterated to me that Pakistan affairs is very very importan subject. One needs to be master in this subject.
I think notes of PA are must in order to score well. Any other query regarding Pak-affairs will be welcomed.

There is another book of Sohail Bhatti that is also good as it is in question format.
The following books, if consulted, are enough for covering Pakistan Affairs:

1- by Sohail Bhatti
2- by Ikram Rabbani
3- by I.H. Qureshi

In addition, make your own notes as they will differentiate you among others. Notes are of utmost importance in Pakistan Affairs and Current Affairs.

@ Waseem! Based on your experience, please comment on the combination of books I have defined above.

Look guys the choice of books is entirely yours. Dr. Khalil who secured 66 marks in pak affairs asked me to go for "Trek to Pakistan" by Ahmed Saeed. The book is fantastic.It extensively elaborates everything that happened from 1857 to 1947. I didnot find any question in previous papers beyond the purview of this book. And for post-partition i will strongly advocate for Military and Politics in Pakistan by Hasan Askari Rizvi. I went through this book after my exam but found that many of the post partition questions and objectives were asked from this book.
But the best approach for css prepration is to go for multiple books. The book you find most appropriate and suitable keeping in view previous papers and syllabus, make it your primary book. Your notes' 60% material should contain the arguments and facts and figuresof this primary book. Then go for other two to three books. Extract important qoutations and facts and include them into your notes. Paper checker should come to know that you have went through multiple books rather than relying on single book. This technique will fetch good marks.
Now i give you an example. I extracted a qoutation describing the plight of muslims after War of Independence from 'Emergence of Pakistan By Chaudhary M. ALi".
"too proud to co-operate with the victor,
too sullen to adjust themselves to new circumstances,
too embittered to think objectively,
too involved emotionally with the past to plan for the future,
Muslim society in the decades following the events of 1857 represented a picture of disolation and decay "
Look at the beauty of words. So what you need to do is to make a difference. In every subject, in every topic try hard to remember those things which common people forget. Go for uniqueness. It will help you alot. All the toppers have been unique in their approach.
Note: Never blindly follow suggestion of any person. Do your own analysis and if other person's arguments have weightage then go for it other wise leave it. Seek guidance from everyone but go for your own approach.

For Pakistan Affairs there hundered of books availble but it doesnt mean that u have to study all.

For CSS point of you one need to be to the point and make things easy for himself/herself.

Study any one book or if that enough somwhere then another one but not more than this.

Study the Muslim reformist movements of shah waliulllah, mujadad alaf sani and sir syed ahmad khan.

Ideology of pakistan, two-nation theory and aligharrh movement.

then start from 1857 war of independence and cover the most important events regarding exam point of view till 1947,.

After 1947 study initianl problems of pakistan, hurdels in the way of democracy, Islamaization, and some current events like war of terrorism, economic melt down etc.

and through this way you will cover Pak-Affair very easily.

Exclamation Good Preparation

Good preparation is that which is comprehensive and thoroughly deep one as we know we have to solve the mcq's also. I have brought the two books
1. struggle for pakistan
2. the making of pakistan

I studied them and I found that it misses some topics like the ideology of pakistan and the evolution and growth of muslims in the subcontinent.

therefore I have search the above topics on the internet as in the above books the mentioned topcs are not in detail or skipped.
I also prepare my notes from Pakistan Affairs book by M. Dogger.
so I prepare my notes from the 4 medium
1. struggle for pakistan
2. the making of pakistan
3. Pakistan Affairs by M. doggar
4. The internet searching

I need suggestions from the senior. please also share your experience.

@Afaq
Last time i was going through the comments of Paper checkers of 2006. They clearly mentioned that students' answers reflected "One book study" and lacked in depth knowledge and because of that reason they failed to fetch good marks.
I think if one intends to join top groups, he will have to go through many books. The more you take pain, the more is the gain.
Making of Pakistan by K.K.Aziz is fantastic book. But book as a whole reflects how muslims were different from Hindus. It discusses the muslim nationalism. It doesnt covers the historical events in depth.
I will also suggest people to prepare post-partition part as well.At least half of the paper is covered from this part(including objective). We think that we know everything after partition but the fact is quite different.
