    Hi Ratendra,thanks a lot for providing materials.
    can you please tell me ,from where to prepare for wastes e.g nuclear waste etc.
    How I can get mukherjee photocopy from you.
    Is there need for brilliant notes or tulane+bangar+ur notes would suffice?

    • rawan239

      Brilliant is a waste of time god knows why they copy pasted a foreign book not even a single example from india… ya Tulane is gud but it covers very few topics related to IFS exam

    • rawan239

      If you are in delhi then i will be there next sat u can photocopy then

  • jk

    Hello sir,
    I am preparing for next year with geology as my optional. I am studying igneous and metamorphic petrology by winter. Can you please tell me which chapters should I study or do I have to finish the complete book.

    • rawan239

      If you are appearing next year than there is no harm in reading the book cover to cover… Still you should not focus on foreign examples given in the book..
      Rest I have not gone though winter so could not specifically guide… Sorry buddy

      • jk

        then what are the sources you refer for igneous and metamorphic petrology

        • rawan239

          Tulane are good and sufficient

        • rawan239

          You can refer turner but the problem with it is its not written very nicely… Content is classic but no heading or subheadings in the complete book

  • Student1

    I referred your palaeontology notes…is there anything else which needs to added because they are concise but seem to be less comprehensive…

    • rawan239

      There is no substitute for book reading..and you should always substitute them with standard textbook for palaeontology

  • Student1

    Thanks for replying..which book should one refer..?

    • rawan239

      P c jain for palaeontology and it covers a lot of Indian stratigraphy topics too

  • Aditya

    Thankyou Sir for sharing these notes. Request you to share rest of notes on aditya114@gmail.com.
    Sir, one question. Will it be enough to just study these notes with probably bit of internet to score decent marks in IFoS Geology paper?

    • rawan239

      There is no substitute of the standard text books, but if you are involved with Civil services too along with Ifs then you can’t give more den two weeks for geology and forestry and for such a scenario these notes are the best alternative along with Mukherjee and engineering geology book

      • Nav

        Sir pls send your notes of skylight at gemcap123@gmail.com
        And how much time is good enough for proper preparation of geology and forestry if only taking ifos?

      • Nav

        And also sir I stay in Bangalore and I am not able to find mukerjee book any where on net. What can I do?

        • rawan239

    • Vinay Singh

      Not able to understand ACF and AKF diagrams. Do we need to mug them or you have something which explains it in some detail. Tried to figure out on internet but of no use. Please also suggest how to cover agriculture paper2

      • rawan239

        Try Tulane bro…
        If still the problem persists than there is no Substitute to Turner

      • rawan239

        But the problem with turner is that it’s compilation is worst I have ever seen in any book

  • Priyadarshi
