How to Read Geography Books?

Preface
This article is a compilation of tips given by Mr.Abhiram AIR 4/CSE 2010 in Indianofficer
forum.
I received some emails & requests from fellow IO members asking me about the strategy I
followed for geography. This short article is in response to those requests. I hope this will be
of at least some value to future aspirants.
Before that Ill introduce myself Im Abhiram cleared CSE 2010 in my first attempt. My rank
is mainly due to my marks in geography (385 marks 196+189 in papers 1 & 2).

Overview of Geography (Mains) Preparation


1. I think it is better to read the minimum possible number of books, but it should be revised
regularly. For eg: I followed only savindra singh for physical geography, and did not buy
separate books for geomorphology, climatology or oceanography. (ive attached the list of
books I followed at the end).
2. I did not prepare notes from standard text books, as I felt it was redundant. Instead I wrote
tips & headings on the margins of the book for easier reference. I concentrated on my class
notes for proper structuring of answers.
3. Use diagrams, maps, flowcharts & other innovative illustrations in your answers. Diagrams
simplify the detail & improve the presentation also. I followed the thumb-rule of one diagram
for a paragraph (i.e. Approx. 1 or 2 figures per page.) Even in questions where the need of a
diagram may not be apparent, try to draw at least one. Eg: for the question on occidental
culture realm, I just drew a rough map & marked the corresponding area, which might have
caught the examiners eye. Eg: for a question on world trade pattern, I drew a world map with
arrows pointing out the nature & flow of commodities between developed & developing
nations. This, I believe, leads to a better expression of an idea which is either difficult or
lengthy to express in words.

4. As far as mapping is concerned, try to identify places that appeared in the news for some
reason (eg: jaitapur, sanand, krishnapatanam etc.). Frankly speaking, luck was a major factor
that helped me in india map & I notched up 11 correct locations out of 15 given in the
question. My interest in wildlife/travel & my location in south india helped me identify 6
locations.
5. I followed the deadline of (number of marks/2) minutes for answer completion & did not
take into account the number of words. Eg: I put aside 10 minutes for a 20 marker. Even this
strategy failed me in Geo paper 1 as I was not able attempt around 15-20 marks.
6. For answering less specific questions (eg: problems & prospects of agro-based industries in
bihar), use intelligent correlation to write comparatively good answers. For eg: problems of
agro industries are related to geomorphology, climate, transportation, quality of manpower
etc. You can opt for either a bright or dull prospect, but substantiate the stand. If you are
positive, then suggest the advantages of bihar with respect to agri production, large pool of
manpower, flat land suitable for road/rail etc. Along with the conditionality like bridges,
better education & skill development of workforce etc.
7. Practice drawing of diagrams to increase speed & save time.
8. Mock tests conducted by Shankar sir, followed by individual correction sessions greatly
refined the quality of my answers.
9. For contemporary issues topic in the syllabus, I mainly relied on my preparation for GS.
PS I am heavily indebted to Shankar sir for motivating & training me to think innovatively &
answer creatively during the exam. The credit for almost all the tips that ive mentioned goes
to him
List of major sources i followed. The list is definitely not exhaustive, but i have tried to be just
to your need.

Books for Hindi Medium
I do not know about Hindi medium books in geo, because i wrote the exam in English. But
savindra singhs physical geography is available in Hindi. You can definitely buy that. Ncert
11th & 12th geo will also be available in Hindi. As for other books, ive no idea.
(Ed. Majid Hussains books under Tata MAcgrawhill Publication are usually available in Hindi
as well.)
Coaching
Missing topics can be read from spectrums geography.
It is not absolutely necessary to take coaching, but in a highly popular subject like geo, it
always helps to be a few steps ahead of the crowd which is possible if you get good guidance.
Pls do not leave out any topic as a whole. Have a basic idea of everything in the syllabus. But
you can be selective while studying in-depth.

Review on specic books


Indian Geography By Khullar
Khullar is mainly a reference book meant to support NCERT. Youll have to follow the whole
book, but there is no need to read line by line, or every page. Some chapters like physical
setting, soil, environment, etc. Need in-depth reading in khullar. Others like minerals, agri,
industry, transport etc. Only need a cursory reading. But take a good look at the maps &
important places. For eg:, you must know major mines in the important coal belts of india,
major national highways etc.
Majid Hussain
You dont need to study the whole of majid husain, but only those topics mentioned in the
syllabus.
Physical Geography Savindra Singh

Chapters in Physical Geography- Savindra Singh are divided into portions that mirror the
mains syllabus (paper 1 section A) like geomorphology, climatology, oceanography &
landform development. Take the syllabus & compare the various topics in the former &
the book. Then youll know what to read & what not. Newer editions even have a glossary
of terms at the end, which is useful for definitions.
I think the new edition of phy.geo. By savindra singh has a portion on sealevel change, law
of the sea & marine pollution.
For marine pollution & sea-level change you can definitely frame points out of your GS
preparation.
Atlas
Youll need Orient Blackswan Atlas (http://www.flipkart.com/orient-blackswan-school-atlas8125038698/p/itmdytkepthaf2zn?pid=9788125038696&affid=mrunalrugm) also, as some
features are better explained in it than in oxford atlas. Also, i do not know about adhikaris
geo thought, but ive heard it is a bit too lengthy.
Rupa Series
Btw, i dont think id have said rupa series was the best for soils & landform
development. It was the book i followed, thats all! Made simple series is very useful, esp.
The soil geography & landform development part.
Rupas series is also really good but youll need only some of the chapters & not all.
Notes
I have never made notes from standard textbooks at any point of preparation. I used to
underline the important points & also write hints on the margin of the textbooks.
How to write Answers in Geography (Mains)?
The intro & conclusion differ from question to question, and also based on the marks
allotted. Generally theres no need for long intros for 20 markers. It is the heart of your
answer that is most important as it contains the stuff.
Generally speaking, most candidates will answer the direct questions (like those relating to
cyclones,earthquakes, structure of earth, tides/coral reefs, landforms, erosion etc.) With
almost the same points, so try to maintain an edge by introducing new diagrams or
presenting your answer in a more appealing manner.
Underlines
For small questions underline just underline one or two keywords. For the long ones youll

have to underline just the key points. Too much of it make your paper look ugly.
Headings
I used both headings (very frequently & only before starting non-intro paras) & points
(occassionally, but each point consisting of minimum 2-3 lines each) in my geography answer
paper.
Open Ended Questions
Also, be careful with the open ended questions you have to write answers with a
geographical perspective in your mind. Moreover, these answers should be as broad as
possible in the sense that it should cover a wide range of factors/issues.
For example: In geo mains 2010 paper 2 we had to write a short note on ethnic diversity
of north-east tribes. Instead of just describing the north-eastern tribes of india
straightaway, i took course to the following format.
Answer to above question as written by me:
small intro drew map of NE showing the strongholds of various tribes (bodo, apatani,
naga, garo, khasi etc.)
description of the ethnic diversity description of how geography created & re-inforced
this diversity and divided the people into island-like communities with each evolving its
own distinct culture, all of which contributed to NE becoming a ethnic diversity hotspot
(several mountain ranges like dafla/abor/mishmi/garo/khasi, perennial & swift flowing
rivers like subansiri/dihang/lohit/kameng, mountain gaps connecting
Tibet/myanmar/bhutan/chittagong with NE paved the way for intrusion of mongolian
races/languages, thick & impenetrable forests etc.)
small map of NE showing the above-mentioned geographic factors conclusion (just a
single line NE is a fine proof of how geography & ethnic diversity go together)
Diagrams in the answers
Most of the diagrams were from the textbooks i followed, but sometimes i had to innovate,
as in the question regarding WTOit is not necessary that there be one diagrm per para, but
try to include atleast one per page to break the monotny & improve presentation.
New places / Current Affairs
Q. F i get any new island name in news paper or any place of dispute should i locate in the
map?

Ans. YES. You have to do that. Also note the sea/ocean, rival claimants names & presence of
natural resources (oil/gas/fish)
Drawing the Maps
I donot use any specific Technic for drawing Indias outlines ( boundaries). Just practiced freehand drawing and made sure that my drawing looked similar to the actual state interms of
shape. Thats all!
State map
Q. If in any question i have to prsent map of any state for example orissa..should i draw the
map of india and inside it should i show orissa or only i draw map of orissa independentlyif
so..then remembring independent maps of every state is going to be very difficult.
Ans. It depends on the nature of question asked. If it specifically pertains to orisse, then youll
have to draw a rough map of orissa. It is not at all difficult if you can remmeber something
general regarding a states outline kerala (like a bitter gourd), tamil nadu (triangle), andhra
(rectangle with one long arm), square (sikkim, nagaland, haryana, punjab, HP, uttarakhand),
rectangle (UP, bihar), amoeboid (chattisgarh, MP) etc.
World Map
Q. How to practices world map..for example i have to show any country of middle east like
libya which is in news..how should i showshould i draw the map of middle east and then i
should show libya inside or independent.
In world map, normally they provide the maps & youre supposed to mark the place/detail
asked. Theyve not asked for maps of other countries till now in my knowledge.
Suggestion (for world map) go from macro to micro. Start from the continent level
landforms & boundaries. Then move onto major countries. Then to any specific country in
news (eg: an oil producing town of libya can be asked!)

How to handle the maps questions?


You may face 4 situations in a map:
1. You know both the location & the description. (best case scenario)
2. You dont know the exact location on the map but you know about the place then
mark the spot where you think the place might be (let it go wrong, no problem), but write the
exact description. Youll definitely get marks.

3. You know the broad region in which the place is located, but not the exact unique
detail here you can go for intelligent correlation. Ill give an eg: suppose kudremukh is
asked & you know its somewhere in the western ghats of Karnataka but nothing special
about it. First mark it on the map. For the description, you can safely write anything thats
common to the hills of w.ghats here & it will surely be passable for an answer. Say, you can
use points like one of the high peaks of ghats, orogenic monsoonal rainfall, tropical
evergreen forests, biodiversity hotspot, non-perennial streams, potential for tourism/small
hydro etc.
Here the trick is to write a word or two about each topic in the syllabus (ie whichever is
applicable) linking it with the place asked ie. Importance/speciality of the place from the
point of view of geomorph/climatology, oceano/biogeography, settlement, trade, agri,
industry, transport etc. This will give you enough material & may even exceed 30 words. This
method will not fetch you full marks, but its better than a zero.
4. You neither know the place nor the description. (May God can help you!) Perform
some guess work, which may range from logical to ridiculous. If lucks on your side, youll get
it. I got the entry for phalgu river (geo-2 2010) correct in this fashion. It seemed like a Hindi
name to me & so I marked it in bihar, and wrote a description common to all rivers of indogangetic plain meanders, floodplains, sandbars, alluvium etc. I came home, checked
wikipedia & found to my pleasant surprise that I guessed it right. But 4 other guesses went
wrong.
yes, i used at least one diagram per page. That surely breaks the monotony of the examiner.
You can use maps or other figures as you feel fit

Guideline for Geography Map pointing Questions in Mains


Remaining part is copy pasted from MG Kumar Raos thread
on Indian Officer.com (http://www.indianofficer.com/forums/8018-guideline-geography-mappointing-questions-mains.html)
One of the reason for Geography have been popular in mains ,for map pointing in both the
papers. Since 2007 Union Public Service Commission has been doing various experiments in
map pointing to reduce its popularity mainly to reduce the impact of coaching institutes.
Last Year map in both the papers is direct evidence for it.

First of all map needs rigorous practice, There is no doubt in it.


But what kind of points to be practiced and how to write info for the corresponding entry in
various angles like physical,human,economic,cultural,environmental etc is one of the major
challenging issue for all the serious aspirants.
I have done 10 and 13 entries in paper 1&2 respectively in all aspects the question being
asked including GMT.
I can give guidelines, I would be happy if it works for any of the aspirants.
1. Do all the entries in NCERT Books[6,7,8 class text book Land and people,11th and
2. 12th class india and world]
3. Take a series of empty maps and try to locate all physical features at on place and so on
for various features.
4. Follow the hindu News Paper, Particularly for Indian Places.
5. This Year almost 4 difficult entries were in News.
6. Try to assosiate on map with another map
7. For Eg:After completion on Physical India, impose the map on political,Then economic ,
transport etc
If you dont know the info for any place try to associate with the syllabus.
For ex: To write 40 words on Ken river.
A seasonal dendritic river of Bhundelkhand and tributary of Chambal originating at foot hills
of Vindhya. It is the part of Indias first river linking project. Provides irrigation, drinking water,
electricity to this region. Famous for highly eroded landforms Ravines.
This particular info on Ken coverd in all angles asked by Union Public Service Commission.
1. PoliticalBundelkhand
2. River charcters-sasonal and Dendritic
3. EconomicIrrigation,electricity
4. EnvironmaentRavines
5. OtherRiver linking
I think this particular description will get 80% marks

When you are doing map point kindly respect the rules of map pointing.
1. Corresponding symbols
2. Lettering(writing name)
3. Direction
4. Scale
Some more Gems by M G Kumar Rao

Problem with Geography


It is very much true that geography one of the most popular optional in Union Public Service
Commission both in UPSC Preliminary Examination as well as in mains. This can be directly
infer from the selection list of each and every year. One major advantage and limitations of
geography availability of plenty of material from various coaching institutes ,text books and
guides in the market. often they have been misguiding students those who are not having
any strategy or planning. Therefore one must take care of these guidelines
Four important aspects
1. One important aspect in civils service is , person must know what to read and what not to
read.This looks very simple but most of the people do mistake at this, and often do
mistakes.
2. second aspect in what way the material are to be studied and how
to
balance both
optional and gs.
3. how to prepare notes and and how much time is required to allot for revisions
4. above all, the most important thing is how to write the exam; Because i believe most of
the people are failed to clear exam even after well preparation.
What is required to succeed with Geography?
One must have complete grip on syllabus: the topics which were given in syllabus of
Union Public Service Commission preliminary. I suggest at least read once syllabus every
day and try to digest each and every sub heading.
One must look into old question papers in order to understand the nature of questions
and to know the pulse of Union Public Service Commission for what exactly they are
demanding form student .
One advantage with geography is it requires both analitical study and factual study (route
memorization);There fore this optional eqully easy/difficult for arts and science

background people.
Accuracy can come only with revision for atlast 5-6 times and reading with analysis and
reasoning.
How to Read Geography Books?
While reading these books one must take care of syllabus and nature of questions.
One must follow the map while reading these text books, Because it develops your analytical
ability.
Use Penguin dictionary where ever youre not comfortable with terminology of geography.
I think you may or may nt get the subject in ur first reading; but dont stop reading.
I suggest you go through at least twice these books so that you will come to know various
links associated between topics. There is no need for you to read each and every text
book from 1st page to last page. I suggest you strictly bound to syllabus.
In your 3rd and 4th reading one must prepare notes from these books. By this time you
will come to know pulse of Union Public Service Commission.
I strongly believe one who follows sincerely these things at a time of 4-5Hrs per day for
geography, i think for all the 4 revisions including notes preparation may take 85-100
days.
Understanding each and every word of syllabus
Minimum of 150 word notes on each and every sub topic of syllabus
Connectivity, application and analysis
Diagrams, pictures and graphs
Books are necessary but not sufficient. Because mains doesnot demand bookish
knowledge alone. You need to develop skill of linking, writing and application. It will not
come in a day but Keep on practicing the old question papers- it is the only way to come
out from this.
