' The Hindu ' is the preferred newspaper for IAS aspirants ,because most of the questions are trigerred from there .
Before you learn how to read the newspaper ,here are some points I shall suggest .
Always have the syllabus infront of you .
Have the past question papers with you and keep referring to them,to understand how questions are asked .
Understand the issue rather than just reading word by word. After identifying the issue ,take down notes topic wise and not date wise.
Use the following websites ,if you need more points .
Do not spend more than 1 hour on the newspaper.Few students end up spending 3-4 hours merely on the newspaper .It does not help.
