You cannot prepare for IAS exams in one day; it takes months to be thorough with the syllabus. Current affairs cover the major portion of the syllabus, since a particular section is dedicated to current affairs not only in exams but also in the interview session. For this, you have to be regular with reading the newspapers, watching the news and listening to the radio. Knowledge regarding current affairs can also be improved by practicing quizzes available in the quiz books, and easier way to access knowledge these days is the internet, which will help you a great deal in your exam preparation for the IAS. Here are few tips to be kept in mind:

Choose scoring subjects in your prelims like maths, history, geography; they have good availability of books as well as more chances of gaining full marks.
Have a strong knowledge of the on going current affairs.
Answer those questions first which you are confident about. Do not waste time on answers you do not know. In CSAT, one part of the question paper tests your accuracy and speed.
