    ·
  • geography can be taken with forestry
    ·
  • but mind you, for indian forest services, we can opt for only science specific subects so its not geography but geology ..and it can be coupled with forestry or agriculture.

    Geography is not an optional subject in IFoS Examination.
    You can go through the list of optional subjects here and decide for yourself,

    @poojasaran
    For Forestry there is K Manikandan's Book[Single source multiple reading] and Rishav Gupta's Notes, check out his blog.
    Thats it. Neednt go for anything else.

    For Geology,
    Depends on how you are targeting, if your optional is Geography then it is important to compare the common portions and prepare them well.
    K M Bangar's Physical Geology + Brilliant Tutorial's Material on Geology[Available at Kumar Book Center, Other shops] + Geogrpahy common portions is enough.

  • Hello, what is a better combination:
    Agriculture and Zoology OR
    Agriculture and Botany.

    I don't have a background in any of these fields.
    Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends than that good men should look on and do nothing.

  • I have never studied zoology.In IFoS,options left with me are Agri/forestry & geology or zoology.I m not much inclined towards geology so thought of opting for zoology.
    Is it advisable to opt for it? Is the terminologies tough orr manageable?
    Is material easily available?

    I am in the same spot. Asked to few friends and some seniors, everybody says that being an engineering graduate it will be quiet difficult to manage botany and zoology, and hardly 1-2 months will be available post- mains 2017 !
    Forestry can be managed within 15-20 days or less. but geology/botany/zoology/physics/chem/maths all require much more time.
    Don't know whether to even apply for IFS or not :fearful:
