If you want to crack any government job exam, then along with practicing a lot, you also need an ultimate book which gives you a quality study material.
In this article, you’ll get to know what is the best book for SSC CGL 2017.
Best Book for SSC CGL 2017
When it comes to preparing for any exam, my personal choice is Arihant Publications. Their books are well structured, and they contain quality material designed by professionals.
If you’re looking for one book which covers all the topics of each section, then I’ll recommend Arihant’s Master Guide for SSC CGL 2017.
This is the latest edition, with high-quality material.
All the sections, Maths, Aptitude, General Awareness, and English has a good number of questions for through practice.
You’ll also get the solved examination papers of previous years.
The Master Techniques for the preparation will be very helpful, so we recommend that you take a look at that before start doing preparation.
Best Books for SSC General Intelligence and Reasoning
For verbal and non-verbal reasoning, my top two choices are R. S. Aggarwal and Arihant.
R. S. Aggarwal is a great book presented by S. Chand Publication, and if you want a lot of practice questions, then it should be your choice. It doesn’t provide a lot of explanation. If your basics are clear, and you’re already on some level, you should go for R. S. Aggarwal.
The level of questions is appropriate and after completing this book, you will have the ability to solve all the reasoning questions of government job exams.
B. S. Sijwalii and Indu Sijwalii are the authors of Arihant’s “A New Approach to Reasoning Verbal & Non-Verbal”.
In this book, you’ll find an explanation, and if you’re a beginner, who doesn’t have much experience, then this is the best book for you.
You’ll find questions of all levels, from easy, medium to hard.
These two books are useful for various government exams where you’ll need to solve reasoning questions.
Books for SSC CGL General Awareness & Knowledge
You can’t prepare your general awareness section in a week. You have to spend regular time on that.
There are various books for this section, but my personal choice is Manorama Yearbook 2017.
It is the most popular general knowledge fact book of India. It’s highly useful for all types of competitive exams.
You’ll find each and everything in detail. Everything will be up to date.
Their database covers a wide variety of topics which includes, Science, Space, Literature, Sports, Election, Government Policies, Schemes, Surveys, and much more.
When purchasing Manorama Yearbook, you’ll also get a free Britannica Ultimate Knowledge Pack DVD worth Rs. 2199.

Books for Quantitative Aptitude
If you know the concepts, and you love mathematics, then you should go for R. S. Aggarwal’s Quantitative Aptitude. It’s one of the best books for SSC CGL Mathematics.
This book covers all type of mathematics problems which can be asked in the competitive exams.
S. Aggarwal is for those students who know the concepts & formulae, but they need practice. You can say that the level of this book is higher than others.
However, if math is not the strength of yours, then you should go for Arihant’s Fast Track Objective Arithmetic. The book is easier and cheaper than R. S. Aggarwal, but if you are on some level, then I’ll recommend you should pick R. S. Aggarwal.
Books for English
If you study regularly, then English is not a problem for you.
Arihant’s Objective General English by SP Bakshi is a great book which will improve your English language and helps you to score good marks in the competitive exams.
You can also choose RS Aggarwal’s Objective General English.
Both of these books are popular and perfect for preparation.
These are the best books for SSC CGL preparation. I’ve selected them as my personal choice. If you find this article helpful, then please share it with your friends.
