Basic books for shortlisting optional subject

edited June 2015 in Miscellaneous
Hello everyone,
I am aware of the concept of going for the optional in which one has his/her interest.
The problem lies in finding the basic books, so that we can figure out the subject which suits us.
I request all the senior members to please mention some basic books for different optionals, which you all have read, so that people like me can read these to find out where our interests lie and finally this can help us to shortlist our optional.


  • Seniors please help. Just 4-5 books on different optionals would do it. I am not asking for 1k comments.
  • Bro read ncert of socio,pshyco and for history,geography ,polity,economics u r already covering basic fir agriculture u can read few chapters from 12th ncert bio portion..the subject u like most take that as optional..these are basic books to decide..
