The year book by Shantanu Kaushik is also good, but the fact is that the year book does not contain lot of facts related to polity, economy, geography or history of Assam. Due to lack of important information useful for various examinations we do not recommend this one. So an aspirant should not depend on Shantanu’s year book for competitive exams. Honestly if I say there are so many mistakes or repetition of data  in almost every year book published til date.

Also New Assam Year Book 2018 by Er. Sakir Alam is given as freebie with APSC guide Book if Purchased online. Check here.The year book is available to purchase on Click to visit product page.
