There was a mail from Mr. Arun which I reproduce here and I have answered the same. Do make use of this blog and be free to ask for any assistance.
•To be honest, i am bit lost in the materials, as in i am not sure how to begin and where to begin as there is lots of data which is been provided in the form of hard copy / materials and also the soft copy. I do understand that in CSAT, the questions might originate from a vast syllabus. But i wanted to understand from you what is the plan / approach that is taken to cover these syllabus.
•Please correct me if my understanding is wrong, CSAT comprises of 2 papers, my question ” is there are prescribed syllabus that is mentioned by UPSC, if not, can you please help me in letting know the distribution of marks for the exam ?
◦Logical Reasoning Skills.
•Is there a recorded sessions of the classes which are been thought & if yes, can you please provide me an access to those portals.

There are two papers for the Prelims: General Studies and CSAT. We are now covering in the class General Studies. Previous years papers are taken up. Each question is posted on the Board through the projector and a clue is given. We prompt the student to think.. Any one can come up and give the answer and others may not agree, This goes on till the correct answer is posted. You get the question as posted and the clue. You could also think making use of the clue and then check the answer. The entire proceedings will be sent to you at the end of the class. More from me , as you get back point by point. There is no limit to the number of questions you wish to ask. But confine each response to one point. Be clear on what you want. all the best
As regards recorded sessions of CSAT there may be some and I will check up.
Arun: Is there a prescribed syllabus for the CSAT?
Reply: Questions will be set on Comprehension (language skillls), communication skills, Decision making skills, Values, Reasoning skills including quantitative aptitude. We would be covering all these.
