Geography optional all freshers gather here

Friends,
This message is for those who plan to take geography optional but can't afford coaching or are unable to manage the schedule for preparation. This is mainly meant for freshers but seniors are also requested to join.

Strategy will be very simple. We will follow only necessary standard books. Eg. Savindra Singh for physical geography. No separate books for climatology and oceanography and geomorphology etc etc. You are free to refer other sources for extra and detailed information.

Daily one topic will be covered and doubt discussion during the day. Answer writing practice (1-2 answers) in the evening at around 9pm.
We will follow savindra Singh physical geography chapter wise, starting with origin of the earth. Those new to the subject and who have not covered ncert or GC Leong, need not worry. We will cover the relevant chapter from ncert, leong and savindra Singh on the same day. Thus the whole syllabus can be covered bit by bit and comprehensively.

I was looking for a similar group to follow but I could not find any so I am taking the initiative. If you wish to join the initiative, Wapp me on 7598518935. Or call me on 8789455596.
Time is of essence and so we will begin from Monday, 7 August, 2017. My plan is to finish the entire syllabus by December.

Together we can, and we will. My principle is that simple planning is the best planning. Please make this initiative a success by participating. I hope you will enjoy the phase of preparation.
Good luck and all the best.
Prafull.

    If you haven't started preparing or just into preparation,DROP Geography as your optional.

    Too much to study,little return on investment.

    I'm not trying to discourage you.If you are interested in geography then by all means go for it.It is better to study those subjects in which we have interest.


    And I didn't sail through this optional.Infact this optional pulled me back.


    I'm just trying to give complete information about geography optional which wasn't available to me while I chose this optional.and if you have completed Physical geography which is the most extensive part of the syllabus,then I think it would not be right to change optional.

    did you change your optional in 2016 ? I have given 4 mains with geo but couldn't qualify pre this year. So thinking of changing it for the 6th and last attempt. Which optional did you shift to ?

    No I haven't changed it since I will be giving CSE 2017 mains and 4 months is too small a time to change the optional.
