Why General Awareness is important?

Looking back to track of last 3 years exam papers of SSC CGL, i must say that you have to take care of this subject a lot because unlike other subjects (Quant, English) GK and other things are not expected as per the candidate expected to come. i mean you have to ready for the surprise topics for this subject a lot.so, take my words and be careful with General awareness. still not believing, then check the below graph, where i have listed the question per topics in last 4 years in SSC CGL for General Awareness.

How to prepare for polity topics in general awareness in SSC CGL?

For poliy section, as you know its a static section, i mean the content and answer of this section are not updating year by year, so for this i would suggest you below mentioned books:-
These both books have enough content to know about the indian polity, and above both links are with updated edition of books.if you are preparing for UPSC Civil exam side by side then also these books will help you a lot. if you are too poor and if you don't have any other material to read then only buy these books, no need to buy these books only for ssc cgl exam. If you prepare from these books, then go with TOP major current affairs only, no need to go with other not so big events.

How to prepare for Indian History & Culture topics in general awareness in SSC CGL?

In SSC exams, if they told you that Indian history, don't go with anything else, only Indian history and culture, do not waste your important time reading about world history. for study material, go with your school books, NCERT Textbooks from standard 7 to 10 and then 11th 12th for history. Read topics like Harappa, Vedic Age, Maurya, Sangam, Delhi Sultanate, Mughals, 1857 Sepoy Mutiny and Freedom struggle. you can download all the NCERT books in hindi version on this link.

For culture (topics like art, painting, dances, temples, mosques, Architecture), go with this zip file which is having notes on  Economy, Environment n Biodiversity, Polity.

How to prepare for Geography (Environment) topics in general awareness in SSC CGL?

Do not need to read about anything else, just concentrate on Physical Geography and Indian Geography. Again, SSC don't ask questions out of india (i.e world geography). Again, go with NCERT books or this zip file which have all the notes for geography section.  Rest is useless, do not waste your time on anything else.

How to prepare for Economy (Indian) topics in general awareness in SSC CGL?

In this topic (economy), you will get directly straight forward questions on economics subject. that you can studied in class 11th 12th. if you are not from commerce background then you need to little care about this topic. you can prepare from this zip file notes (NIOS) where you can find notes and files on economics. Also if you don't have school textbooks then get it from this link now.

How to prepare for Science (Physics, biology, chemistry) topics in general awareness in SSC CGL?

As you know, i am listed this topics in science section as you will get question which answer lie in Science book of NCERT. AS in this section you will get questions on gravity, sounds, heat, electronics, motion, work, pressure, various chemical composition, alloys, definition questions, parts of plant and function of plants, disease. To study for these topics, i advise you to go with NCERTs as they have the best content for such topics.

If you are not from science background, you need to read a little more for this section and if you are from science background, do not ride on overconfidence, as whatever you learn may or may not asked in exam, so you should revise again.

How to prepare for general Knowledge section in general awareness in SSC CGL?

Why this section is tough? 1st, they had maximum wight-age in last 2013 exam. 2nd they ask questions on "Shree Krishna Committee report" (do you know about it?), this time food security bill questions can be asked.. 3rd Questions like Author of book "Kurukshetra to Kargil". So, moral is you have to ready again to get surprise in this section. What is the answer then..? Yearbook? no, Yearbook is crap. I suggest you to go with latest Pratiyogita Darpan, latest google news(indian edition). Follow newspaper daily, TV news channel.
