My seniors told me to join Sriramís, Delhi. I went with full faith. I was rewarded fully. Each faculty member was good. Sriram sir encouraged us to cover many more topics than usual. I did lot of writing practice. Both helped me. Government publications such as India Yearbook were also very useful. Yojana is a must. I was the GS Prelims paper on 23rd May, 2010. I feel it sets the tone for the Csat-it demands conceptual clarity and extensive knowledge base. My advice to aspirants is to do Sriramís Classes and then add to it, if necessary.
