  • no one just current events and basics ncert plus wikipedia for groups, convention, agreements. Dont waste time on silly books like NIOS or The great shankar
    Nigaho mein manzil thi.
    gire aur gir kar sambhalte rahe.
    hawao ne bahut koshish ki.
    magar chirag aandhiyo mein bhi jalte rahe…

    thanks a lot
  • Done both, basic material is similar in nature as well as content. Shankar has additional points based on questions asked in previous exams.

    Strongly need to supplement the content with current events.

    I mentioned that there are some additional points in Shankar material as compared to NIOS, not the other way round.

    i always think of this thing for many books ; if book X covers all what has given in Book Y then why should one even touch book Y ; and all Book X readers should feel safe;

    same goes for old vs New NCERT deabte

    Right! One could check for the lucidity of language in both the sources, if I may add. Time is a crucial as well as precious resource.

  • Nothing from both at dis point.. Churn moef summary.. Open Wikipedia.. With all 29 states plus 2 islands make list of National Park.. Wildlife Sanctuary plus animals Google which animal is ce or endangered and etc.. High weightage should be on black necked crane.. Do little but do solid like Khangchendzonga in Sikkim.. UNESCO status.. If.. Upsc is on a crazier side it may ask Sanjay ghanti or Sanjay dubri

  • Shankar IAS bhai... Hands down the best book...

    i recently came across this book and around 90% of questions from Environment section are from this book and this book was written in 2014 or before...

    So good luck
