TSPSC Group 2 services 2016 materials
Telangana state exams are new exams.There is not much information present about these exams on internet. I have not received too many information about candidates as well. I have talked to candidates and researched about good books for these exams.Currently books are available in Telugu medium as well as English medium.
Paper 1 , Paper 2 ,Paper 3
I have given link to books in Telugu language.But you can easily find the same book in English language as well on same website.You can order the book in language you prefer.
Below book is in English language but you can find book in Telugu language as well so order the one which is your preference.
These two book swill help you in preparation for these posts.The syllabus of these exams are different then other exams.So these books written by local writer of Telangana will be much better for preparation then any other material.
The pay package of these posts are very good.So you should seriously prepare for the exams.The eligibility criteria is also not strict.The competition will be only from Telangana state candidates.The vacancies are also healthy.So you should dedicate food amount of time for preparation.
