Objective English by SP Bakshi is good for vocabulary like antonyms and synonyms. For English grammar i will recommend you Plinth to Paramount by Neetu Singh. To practice and learn the rule of error finding , you can follow Mirror of common error by Ashok Singh.
Best book for ssc reasoning
Reasoning of ssc is the easiest of all sections. You don’t need any specific book for this. Just practice year previous year questions and mock test. Learn from your mistakes. Learn alphabets and their corresponding numbers, cube, square of numbers up to at least 20. But still if you want to buy a book and practice then you can purchase Kiran ssc reasoning previous year book. This is more than enough. Just practice enough.
Best book for ssc general awareness.
This sis the most vast section of ssc as there is no boundary what to study. Some times aspirants keep studying GS and ignore other subjects. This is not good practice as GS conatains only 50 marks in total exam process. But you also can’t afford to ignore GS as it plays important role in final selection. The advantage of SSC general awareness is it can be solved in minimum time and gives maximum marks. So, if you stude effectively, it saves your time in exam aand gives maximum marks. Go through previous year questions of ssc of GS as ssc repeats questions frequently. You can buy Lucent GK or Kiran GK book.
