Sociology optional for mains 2019 : Group of 3-4 serious aspirants

I am preparing sociology as optional for 2019, earlier I had given mains with a different optional and now changing to sociology.
I am a working professional and have just started sociology with ncert and looking for a group of 3-4 people who can discuss about material to use, test series to join. We can join a common test series and evaluate each other's copies. I am targeting to finish the optional preparation asap.
Any other suggestion will also be welcomed.


  • @akhileshkumar

    I'm too preparing for 2019.
    No coaching. Beginning to read IGNOU BA material for sociology.
    BTW How do you plan to coordinate the discussion?
  • I am also not taking any coaching for now. I am planning to buy some class notes from Delhi.
    We can use watsapp or telegram(haven't used much though)
    We can set some small targets to finish the topics and then can solve previous yr questions from them and review each other's.
  • Okay.
    Having followed an old thread on the platform, inputs are:
    Primarily, to get the feel of sociology, NCERTs & IGNOU BA are must read.
    Then proceed to Haralambos & any 1 of these coaching notes(Upendra/Mahapatra/Sindoori Ma'am)
  • Kisi k paas mahapatra sir k audio lectures hai?

    Kisi k paas mahapatra sir k audio lectures hai?

    Bhai telegram me h latest wale
    I maybe anyone but i dont belong to anyone.
  • Please count me in
  • Kisi ne Praveen Kishore ki sociology ki test series join ki hai online wali..anybody willing to share the videos
  • I was preparing sociology from IGNOU and Mohapatra sir notes ...can u ppl count me in??
  • I have few audio lectures of Mohapatra sir from telegram channels
  • Count me in
  • I think a general doubt discussion thread would be more helpful as forum seniors would also provide their valuable input. If no one makes, I will do so when I complete socio (atleast 1 paper :# )
    bite off more than you can chew and chew it
  • Please provide link of sociology beginner group of working professionals and recorded lectures of Mahapatra Sir
