Amar Patil (Pune, Maharashtra, India)
Best Modern History Book for UPSC and State PSCs.

All the content given is simple yet impactful. The highly qualitative content is supported by the tables, charts and maps. I really enjoying the book. Thank you pmfias.

S
SIDDHARTH (Ranchi, Jharkhand, India)
Detailed yet crisp; eagerly waiting for ancient and medieval sections as well

Found the work to be exhaustive; useful for prelims as well as mains

Good source

Content is good for upsc and State psc . Better than spectrum because it is comparatively easy to understand it . Spectrum has unnecessary info + spectrum doesn't clarify various things .
For example this pdf has pictures , present day names of places , area belong to which state etc
Spectrum is boring while this pdf is colourful and easy to understand .

Paradigm shift for modern India preparation

After reading this book I came to a conclusion that this book will replace all other the bulky and novel types of books prevailing in market.This will help to finish modern India portion of upsc in very comprehensive manner but in considerably less time.

Splendid Content

The Book of MIH is very precisely written! From timelines to chapter overview and previous year questions to summary, everything in this book is covered in a unique way such that no other existing book in the market is offering.
Content wise each chapter has been covered thoroughly and at the same time is crisp and exam oriented.Revision through this book is lot more easy and less time consuming, all thanks to maps, timelines and flowcharts.
At last, a letter of thanks and appreciation to team PMF IAS (especially, Dr. Vishwjeet Kawar sir) for structuring and developing such a fantastic book.

Amazing book for pre and mains

I have been using your Geography and Environment books and I know how good quality content you provide
That's why I started reading Modern History notes.
All things have been explained in comprehensive manner with proper reasoning.
Although it is bulky but once read there's no need for any other source for pre or mains.
