In anyway no one suggest particular book for AnC because it becomes useless in mains and in pre it just ok but not good/best.
Although the whole book is relevant, the information is just too much.
Questions asked in upsc are too few and unpredictable.
Old handwritten notes would be better along with value addition from other sources like CCRT website.
