Books, Study Material, Notes recommended for UGC CBSE NET JRF in History 2016 Paper II and Paper III core studies; Must read books for all competitive examinations (Objective Type and Reference Books )

Though it is good to read history thoroughly and topic-wise, but we might need some reference books and also the books which provide us with a fare share of practice before we appear in examination. These books do not serve everything in silver plate but I am sure that you will gain some confidence going through them once you have finished syllabus once. These books are bulky and a bit costlier. But it is you who need to take decision.



 Indian History and Culture  by  - V.K. Agnihotri
This is a complete encyclopedia of history with loads of objective questions to solve. But you might think again solely relying upon it for UGC NET as many questions in UGC NET which are pro Historiography. Except for this , this book provides you with a lot of study and practice material. Go for it if your pocket allows.

But it all does not end with that. History is becoming more popular subject with the passage of time and its demand in always in the rise, be it any competitive exam. Comprehensively the in exams like UPSC and and other, knowing a bit more of history would always be an edge. But career in History alone is no less lucrative or less rewarding. 
UGC offers a healthy scholarship of  Rs. 25000+ HRA / month to the students who succeed in qualifying JRF and no need to get disappointed for other too as there are multiples ways to get your research in History funded.
