    You can go through the list mentioned in the link,

    Go to all the websites and choose two or three best websites that you like.

    As a former aspirant, my suggestion to you is to prepare from a Mains perspective, then you will automatically clear the Prelims exam. Choose the optional subject after thorough consideration so that you don't need to change the optional subject later.

    Go to, where they will explain about how to write answers. After your preparations are over, you can join online Test Series, provided by some of the institutes like ForumIAS or VisionIAS. They will analyse your content and the writing style and suggest some improvement.

    There are many sites nowadays for preparing for competitive exams of UPSC. One can go and refer the material there. One thing which I would suggest is go through the old question papers wherever they are available and find out the trend of the questions. This will help in preparing for the exam in a right perspective. Sometime we read some material but the question is asked in such a way that we are not able to attempt it.
    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.

    To clear for UPSC, selection of optional subjects is the most crucial and the is to be made as per inclination of the aspirants. Some subjects like Pure Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry though one may think are easier and marks scorings but practically, the aspirants have to put a lot of efforts to understand the basics of these subjects. Without the conceptual clarity, one cannot get impressive marks in these subjects. However, some options are there for the aspirants having secured the bachelor degree other than humanity stream to select Geography, Psycology, Philosophy, Sanskrit etc so as to get grand marks in such optional papers. Apart from this, select a reputed institute for the overall guidance such as Rao Study Circle, Byjus etc so as to get better inputs time to time apart from their study material. Guidance from a premiur institute is always better to wipe out your confusion.
