ICSC Books: Which? What?

Disclaimer: This thread doesnt ask for any pirated materials. It is for guidance purpose only..

Hi, I want to study ICSC books... Can anyone suggest me which class and which subjects ICSC books should i refer? Senior aspirants please guide!

We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.


  • There is nothing like "ICSC books". Its ICSE. you can look at environment(10th 11th),Geography(10th,11th,12th) ICSE Books are costly, but well written and i guess Geog. books are by Majid Hussian. None of them are mandatory for success. Keep revising basic NCERT's and standard books like GCL, Laxmikanth, Spectrum etc, that would suffice. All the Best.
  • ICSE books esp for geography from std 6th to 10th are very well written by Mcmillan publication. .... some of my friends also refer to Economics & History. ....
  • hi,Since you are interested to study the ICSC books .I think you are a good reader.So i advicing you to improve your writing skills too.For that you just go through best thesis writing service
  • @sameer @killerjoe Thank u so much... :smile:

    I'd say any book that is presently in the curriculum of ICSE 8/9/10, in a school in your town.. Don't sweat on which one is better one because the ones usually prescribed are good enough.. As for which subjects - History/Civics, Geography, Environmental Education - they're great.

    I've studied ICSE syllabus til 10th, so I revise my school textbooks over and over despite reading NCERTs(although I don't have EVS and Hindi vyakaran).

    Actually, I am of the opinion that it is better to "go back" and revise the ones you've studied in your school, provided, you still have 'em with you, because it seems better, whatever's read in the school days must be retained in memory even if subconsciously... than reading an entirely new book even if it's a school text book... IMO :)
