    i have done this book,all chapters,but made summary till world war 2. i feel it shud be done till world war 2.very less questions come from WH but if u are starting now u may do it once,else arjun dev is also a good book and can be covered in one-fifth of its time.moreover both books are since 1900 only,so see the cost benefit and then pick it.but one thing is for sure---its the ulimate book on WH.

  • i agree with @Geheimnisse . I have always done arjun dev & complemented with vision WH booklet. Since in my opinion WH Q either are very easy so you need to attempt them nicely or its less known Q . Therefore it tends to have low output/input ratio.

  • I have not done this..Did arjun dev,And studied event specifically from various random sources Ncert,You tube videos..dint even revised before exam..vse bhi aaya western african leaders role tha.
