    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?

      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

    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.

      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

      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
