  • 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!!!

    Bhai have u ever tried solving previous year question by urself??
    how is ur map practice ..like do u draw maps often for a question or u depend on the content.(less diagrams and maps?)

    No there is no need to join..but is a good test series in case u r thinking of joining a test series I would place it above in my choices.

    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.

    U hv already done enough. But u can also refer

    NCERT
    Revise as many times as possible and think as much as u can
    Some chapters of R.C. Tiwari is very worthy
    Make synoptic notes so that u revise n recall things easily. Carry it with u where ever u go and keep glancing on it
    The MOST IMPORTANT thing is -----------write or frame answers to any random geography question. Framing answer helped me more than writing it.

    Sad man!! gs paper 3 me to shockingly low reh gye.,,.better luck next time,.
    Bhai just a week ago i completed Geo thoughts by mazid and I realised halff of the things were repetative and useless only 11 and 12 chapter are essential,.But even then I cant remember most of it,.,
    Which books and which chapters from Kullar and RC tiwari are essential??, I have read RC once,. and it was good,. I dont know whether I need to read some chapters from khullar as well!!!!
    Plus what kind of framing you are suggesting please elaborate with an example
    Thanks, you are the first person who is sharing some strategy.,warna to carrier barbaad lagne laga tha

    What I meant by framing answer is explained below.

    Take any test paper (eg. Vision IAS for GS and Nertu ma'am for Geo optional) along with MODEL ANSWER.

    Pick up questions. Rather than writting full fledged answer just prepare skeletal form of answer by enumerating all points u can collect. Do deep thinking, collect as many points as u can, correlate it with various other streams like Polity, Economy, IR, current events etc and then establish an organic linkage between various parts of ur answer. Now u hv a cogent answer ready. :|

    This was just the gist. I hv a lot to say but I can't type that much.

    Hope it helps.
