To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
2019 Editiion Earlier Lucent GK used to be another name of correct comprehensive content. But now they have totally ruined it with plenty of errors and frequent repetition of topics. As you can see, "ff" are missing from all words in the whole book. Moreover, on many places, the authors are giving their opinion as if they were historians or researcher. Very dissappointed.
Thousands of typos, grammatical and factual errors. On top of that parts of the text are missing. Sometimes absolute drivel is used to fill up space. Irrelevant information, yada, yada. Was the editor sleeping? Is there even an editor for this book? I wish i could give it zero stars.
I ordered for 2 copies of the book. However, to my utter surprise one of those was a second hand book with the name of the previous user written on it and it was obvious from other aspects also that the book was used by someone before. Being a regular customer of Amazon, I'm very disappointed with this deteriorated standard of service by Amazon. At the same time, I would like to appreciate the publisher for bringing such a useful book to the market. This is a very helpful book for the aspirants of competitive exams. All the topics are covered in a compact form.
Worst book except miscellaneous portion. One can gather 360 degree depth and intense knowledge in history, geo, science and tech etc from text book, not this type of dumb illustration less book. Only the static gk portion given in miscellaneous portion is quite decent. One xam refer to that, but he has to be updated for stat gk portion too relating to current affairs.
The book has only 410 pages but the PDF available online has 600+pages.....plese reply
Edit: Book is comprehensive & good but ssc CGL requires you too to be concise & crisp in GS, so one may waste his time! Received it with its cover folded as shown in figure... I bought it because I misunderstood it for its previous edition that I had seen in my College's library, that one was a the size of a dictionary & very thin. I liked its content, but seeing this edition I was literally shocked b'coz it is too comprehensive to study for CGL. I am thinking of returning the book.
