world history

which is a better option for world history for gs1, norman lowe or jain and mathur?


  • edited November 2016
    Norman Lowe 20th Century and Onwards For 17th to 20th Century I prefer L mukerjje over Jain and Mathur.

    Gktoday latest Notes are much better for revision.

    Jaan Tere Naam

  • Synergy class notes for world energy....quite satisfactory
    all i need is profound meditation. all i love is my stethoscope
  • History*
    all i need is profound meditation. all i love is my stethoscope
  • Norman Lowe

    Old ncert for the parts not covered in Lowe.
    And little bit from Internet or any coaching material.
  • Norman Lowe is a very good book but for GS-1 it can be overkill!
    Buy Baliyan World History printed notes .They are very good. You can also refer to Vision's printed notes.
    One step,One Punch,One Round At a Time.
    How you do anything is how you do everything.

    PSIR Optional. Aspiring Diplomat.
  • Yeah balyan printed notes or ojha sir notes ...would suffice but to get more clear picture i saw some youtube videos of roman sirs and other foreign videos and refering vision in some particular portions is worthy ..
  • Need suggestions for world history , given the paucity of time have to chose between NCERT or Vision printed stuff, any other option ?
  • @LaxmikantChandra go for mrunal's WH notes.....crisp and more than sufficient
  • Synergy class notes for world energy....quite satisfactory

    sirji i m searching for the same since many days in orn but unable to find. can u suggest some shop or soft copy to access the notes.
    it will be very helpful for me.
