    yes.bangar is very technical and so much point wise ,no fluidity in concepts.it doesnt make the concepts clear,good only if we can mug up all the facts and points and tables,which seems tedious to me.

    meanwhile i will try to fetch the book by wadia if i can.thanks a lot for ur reply. :)

  • Guys, 3 queries:

    1. Can we get Bangar book online? I don't see the book available even in Jawahar Book centre website, let alone in Flipkart or Amazone. If someone has the link, please post it.
    2. Which one is better? GB Mahapatra or Bangar? I have Mahapatra Textbook on geology. Does it cover the syllabus fully?
    3. How good is Brilliant Tutorials materials? I can see that they are dated 2012 but I don't see any evolving questions in geology either. Can we use it to supplement the existing books?

    which book for Geology are we talking about are we talking about Principals of Engineering Geology by KM Bangar

    Yes, same doubt here. Also, Civil's mains optional is not getting completed, and this exam is just 10 days before Civil Services Mains exam :s

    There is 7 days gap between GS and English paper day and Optional papers day. Thinking of devoting these 7 days to those 2 optional's

    Its taking time as i m doing geology for the first time.have to focus on civils mains also side by side with a different optional in hand.3 optionals management i have to do :D but picking one two topics daily.its a totally rattamaar subject.except few portions everything is rote learning at which i m really bad.i often slip into dilemma wether to solely focus on civils or prepare for forest also.lets see how things shape up in next few days.
