    Super!

    The book is a veritable compilation of all 'essential' information about Sociology optional.

    Questions and Answers
    Q:Do this book cover syllabus for paper 2 only? Or both papers in comprehensive manner?
    A:It covers both parts. However, as the name suggests it only covers the bare essentials. One must read at least two more reference books for each of the papers to score well in sociology optional.
