IBCA Book on GK(Handbook on General Awareness): Book Review

Today's book review article is about General Knowledge book. I am going to talk about
General Knowledge book released by IBC Academy Publication, which is a must have book
for the serious candidates who wish to cover many important subjects with comprehensive
coverage and virtually no error in content or typing.
The book is known by a distinct name :Handbook on General Awareness to help this
stand apart from the horde of GK books published by many Publishers. I have
recommended this book for almost every competitive exam having static GK content,
despite the fact that there are hundreds of GK books in the market.
The most important reason I keep suggesting this GK book is that – the book is compiled by
a Senior Ex-banker with a team of Expert which ensure that the content is top quality and
just suit your requirements. Second, most other Publishers have been just copy pasted the
content and takes content from many other popular books. This is not the case with
Handbook on General Awareness.
You would find that the presentation of the book and the coverage of the General Knowledge
Study Materialis exhaustive and rich. This is the FIRSTbook on GK which started covering
an exhaustive chapter on Economics which is most sought after for banking, insurance and
other competitive exams. these days.
To make you appreciate better, I shall first show some of the quality features of this book
and in second part we will cover how this book helps you in your GK preparation for your
competition exam.
So let's take a peek into the book features…
Features of the Book:Handbook on General Awareness
Coverage of topics arevery significant feature of this book. Not all the GK books which are
printed in colour and looks bulky may have contemporary and relevant topics covered. The

keeps you ready for the forthcoming exams. No other GK book in similar category has such collection.
CHAPTER -11 : MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS (MCQs)

(A) Subject-Wise Chapters:Each part can be considered as an individual chapter, as there
is not internal sub-divisions. As there are only ten chapters and that too in subject-wise
format and almost all the topics of static GK are covered in this book. However, for Current
Affairs topics, you shall have to prepare these from the magazines and Newspapers.
(B)Internal Division of Subjects: Some of the topics are divided according to the
requirement of the subject, such as - Indian History is divided into 4 parts i.e. Ancient India,
Medieval India, Modern India and Miscellaneous. Similarly, World History is divided into Ancient World, Medieval World, Modern World and Miscellaneous.And it is very important to
have these separations to have a better understanding of the topics. It increases efficiency
of your GK preparation.

match the context of the subject. And this will not give you any trouble in this book as it has
