I was going through this debate on Answer writing on Quest, and I was compelled to share this screenshot, which captures the experience of ForumIAS Community Member crazyphoton and shared with me by louislitt - both of them now serving in IAS with Ranks 1 and 87 respectively.
Link to the discussion, which prompted this blog post
Sir, you suggested to make notes on static topics as well in a video last year and also on this platform. what does that mean?
When i was revising for this year mains i had notes for CA but not for static. It took me to almost 4-5 days to complete lakshmikant (even though i had revised it for 6 times) which is too much in crucial mains gap. Same is for other basic books.
So, Should We make notes out of basic books like lakshmikant. If yes how? Mains focused? Because for prelims we would have to revise whole books anyhow.
Or is there is a way to make notes for pre too.
