  • I think savindar singh is best for physical geography but you will not find all The topics in savindar singh. So i will suggest you go with savindar singh + spectrum(for rest of topics ).

    For physical geog
    1.Savindra singh
    2.Rupa made simple (for selected chapters)
    3.Internet for some topics like applied geohydrology, environmental issues,climate change, legislations etc.
    4.spectrum for few missing topics that you wont find anywhere else in human geog.
    5.NCERT and leong for diagrams.
    A casual reading of stralher can help in keeping you interested in geog.
    Those who Agree...say Aye

    I haven't seen Spectrum Geo and struggling in Human Geography part. Would you advise me to go through it along with 3 Books of Majid Hussain?

    Thanks Doreamon. Yup, I'm doing w/o coaching alone at a distant place.
    I bought 'Evolution of Geographical Thoughts' by Majid Hussain and one more book by RD Dixit on the same topic.

    However, both are quite boring :neutral: .
    Postponed Human Geo part after Notification.
