Geography Optional Preparation

Hello Guys,
1. Which book is better for Indian Geography: Khullar or Majid Hussain?
2. Has anyone gone through the video lecture of geography on Mrunal's Youtube channel? Many people in the comment section are talking about its authenticity. Is it worth going through these videos?
3. How to prepare for agriculture and human geography section?
Thanks :smile:

    (1) Indian Geography by D R Khullar is better.
    (2) Video lectures of geography on mrunal you tube channel is good for understanding basics but it's not enough from optional point of view. If you are looking for online lectures on YouTube then I will suggest you geography optional course videos of examrace it covers optional pretty well ( free available).
    (3) For Agricultural geography there's not enough material in standard reference books so I would suggest you to go for coaching notes of neetu Singh or alternatively you can get spectrum geography guide book.
    For Human geography part you have to refer following books but selectively - For Perspectives in human geography - Evolution of Geographical thought by majid Hussain.
    For Population and settlement geography - Human geography by Majid Hussain.
    For Models and Then - Models and theories in Human geography by Majid Hussain.
    For Regional planning - There's four parts PDF by UNCRD document which covers this portion of both paper 1 & 2 exhaustively with Indian case studies.
