Only half good

Review MaterialThis is a good review material for prelims as well as starters for mains. It is a one time read and may be shared rather than bought by all. Decent for those who do not take notes. Better to read NCERT 6-12 standard books for better grasp of concepts.

Indian and World Geography by HussainBook good for beginners. Not ideally suited for civil service aspirants. More fact oriented than concept.In civils you need more concepts than pure facts. Learning facts is like rote learning.Could have made better.

Not recommended for Civil Services ExaminationThe Book is fact oriented , there are list of rivers , height of various hills , population of various countries , i mean there is nothing in the book which can be asked in CSE , it is not useful better if you ignore it .....................................................................................................................................................................................
