Tips for linking geography theories to answers

I had written my first mains this year and couldn't pass. I mainly faced problems in linking concepts to the questions. Also can someone help me with human geography resources ? I'm following only geographical thought by Majid Hussain

    Many suggest Shabbir sir notes as himanshu sir's notes are too lengthy. is it so ?

  • I don't know about Himanshu or Shabbir but you can try it on your own. I did that on my own. Take the previous 25 years questions (that directionias pdf) and attempt questions with the resources in front of you. Initially you'll need the sources to form good answers. But slowly you'll be able to do that on your own. Plus, completing previous years' questions is a huge bonus for this preparation.

    Oh. Questions repeat for geomorphology, climatology etc. But what about human geography part and models part ? I felt that questions are getting weirder and weirder. May be it is because I am new to this. But how to handle those ?

    there also a book by sudipta adhikari...moreover shabbir sir's notes of human geography are good.
