Review Material

This 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 Hussain

Book 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.

Limited utility

this book is a disappointment since it does not meet the standards set by the author in his earlier book on indian geography. the book is too brief to remain of much use and though it mentions world geography it does not do any justice to it.
the problem however is in the absence of decent books...
