  • Use 11 12 ncert's ....then some coaching notes....read majid hussain (available on xaam) selected chapters.

    See paper's and while reading geography news in current use atlas and static theory to complete your topic.

    Thats all.
    That's the difference between you and me,you wanna lose small and I wanna win big!!!

    This is for base for studying geo optional. The fort is very big and takes time to conquer.

    are ALS notes important? Because many people say you shouldn't replicate class notes answers in exams because many will write the same and your answers will look common,given that many people have geography as their optional in mains.
