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.
