TNPSC Group 2 Mains Preparation Book List for Latest Updated Syllabus

Many TNPSCPortal visitors have asked for a comprehensive book list for TNPSC Group 2 Mains Exam. Here I have listed some important books for TNPSC Group 2 Mains Self Preparation. If you sincerely prepare with these books, you can easily clear the Main Exam with very good score without attending any coaching centres . All these books can be easily bought  online. Again, I insist you, first finish syllabus oriented portions from Tamilnadu State Board Books and go for these suggested books. For descriptive type questions on latest events, try to cover national and Tamilnadu related news and editorials from The Hindu, தி இந்து, தினமணி newspapers for atleast past one year. I personally feel these books are comprehensive for the TNPSC Gr 2 Mains Preparation, but if you have any useful book suggestion please let me know in the comment section so that I can update the book list.
