You can’t build a great building on a weak foundation. You must have a solid foundation if you’re going to have a strong superstructure. –  Gordon B. Hinckley

The statement holds true in the case of UPSC Preparation. The foundation of UPSC preparation is laid by NCERT Books. The initial 2-3 Months of the preparation should be focused on NCERT Books Only.
