)-- LexisNexis India, a leading publisher of legal, tax, academic and test-prep books launched a new series for Indian Civil Services aspirants recently. These books have been conceptualized and designed by education industry experts based on several years of teaching and content development expertise. The new series has been published under LexisNexis test-prep imprint, ‘Catapult’. LexisNexis India is also the publisher of DD Basu’s Introduction to Constitution of India, a book that has been read and referred to by lakhs of Indian Civil Services aspirants over past several years.
The civil services examination is one that has undergone significant changes in the last few years. Mere conceptual understanding is not enough and aspirants are expected to have evolved critical thinking skills and an ability to apply the learned concepts in a constructive manner. Vikesh Dhyani, Director Marketing, Customer Discovery & Innovation, LexisNexis India said, “Indian Civil Services examination is one of the most prestigious and competitive exams with an overall final selection of about 0.1% - 0.3% only. This is such a broad based and tough exam that students often struggle for sourcing the relevant and effective reading material across multiple sources. Covering the entire spectrum of syllabi for the exam is a race against time and despite the best preparation one is never too sure of the final outcome. Our goal is to equip serious aspirants by providing a comprehensive series of pedagogically enhanced books based on years’ of class room teaching and test-prep content development expertise. We are also investing in conducting free educational seminars in partnership with leading coaching institutes, faculty and past successful students to share their wisdom, tips and techniques, and success secrets with thousands of aspirants who may not have access to good coaching institutes.”
Amitabh Srivastava, Sr. Director, Academic Publishing, LexisNexis India mentioned that “This comprehensive series with over 20 titles covers almost the entire spectrum of all compulsory and popular optional/elective subjects for both preliminary and main examinations. These well researched books have been conceptualized and designed in partnership with experts in educational content and student coaching. We have focused on meeting the needs of aspirants comprehensively, who are expected to cover a lot in a very limited time and often struggle to find relevant and crucial reading material that helps them succeed, in one single place.” LexisNexis has devised an innovative Structured Learning Pedagogical Model based on Bloom’s Taxonomy that helps learners evaluate, synthesize, understand, apply and recall effectively. Topics are covered in a comprehensive manner, beginning from the basics and progressing to advanced topics in a step-by-step manner. The books also include previous years’ questions providing insights into examination patterns facilitating predictive trend analysis.
