Political Science is regarded as a crucial part of almost all competitive exams in India. UGC accepts applications for NET/JRF positions in this subject. If a UGC/NET Exam aspirant wishes to crack the exam, he/she must refer to the best books available in the market. Whether you are preparing for the UGC NET commerce syllabus, political science, or any other subject syllabus, without good books/study material clearing the UGC NET exam can be nearly impossible.
There are many students who qualify the NTA’s UGC/NET exam, but only a handful of them are qualified for the Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) in political science. So to comprehensively cover the UGC NET political science syllabus and crack the JRF in Political science, students need to study with the help of the best books.
On that note, let’s learn about the best books recommended by experts for thorough preparation of Political Science for the UGC/NET Exam.
Indian Polity by M. Laxmikant
Nobody can pass the UGC-NET exam without studying M. Laxmikant’s book, and this is not hyperbole. This book is on the bookshelf of every IAS/PSC/UGC-NET candidate. As a result, this work is known as the Gita of Political Science. To succeed in the tests, every candidate must read this several times.
The authenticity of the information and the topic’s conciseness is the book’s greatest strengths. This book is a must-have for UGC-NET papers 1 and 2.
M. Laxmikant’s Indian Polity is one of the most well-known and thorough works on the subject, and it has been a continuous best-seller for many years.
