Forestry and Geology (Les Miserables)- Mission 2020

A list of topic wise list of books.

Also if you're willing to join forces, drop in a message. I need 4-5 people, we will divide these two subjects into parts, cover the topics in a week and then exchange notes and insights and maybe answer writing practice (a bit far fetched but worth a shot)

For Forestry, Manikandan is your go to book. Not that it covers entire syllabus (nearly 90 % is covered) but because everyone reads it. Geology I am not sure as I had Agri Engg last year and messed it up big time (and I still had the guts to choose it again this year :p). You can watch some video of Arushi Mishra mam, AIR 2, 2018. She scored 300+ in Geology.

Hello guys. I have a proposal if you are willing, we can complete the syllabus in 10 days and then start answer writing.

Let's divide the portion among ourselves, create short notes- must be comprehensive and share it with each other. Also after preparing the notes all of us will create comprehensive answer keys for previous years question of respective portions (not full fledged answers, but all the points that need to be mentioned). I think this is better than spending time on watching videos and also we'll be able to devote sufficient time to our second optional as well. If anyone's interested for geology we can create a similar group for that.

Bro. I heard from someone that agri engg has some common syllabus with forestry and some numerical based questions and therefore suitable for engineers. 

Share your experience please.

@Jokar @Chanakya @Fasak Could you guys please share how you covered forestry and geology this year. Are there any video lectures available? Anything you observed while attempting the optional papers?

I gave IFoSM this year but had both optionals different from forestry/ geology.

@Steph_Curry Hi, I did not have geology optional. I had forestry and agri engg. I did Forestry mostly from Manikandan. Did not refer to any other book, though used Google for some topics. Given my time constraints, I did not even search for videos lectures. Regarding observations, although this year's paper was slightly different but still a lot of topics from PYQs were repeated. I think one can manage around 220 - 230 through Manikandan and PYQs. If one has to go above that then probably more efforts would be required. Doing PYQs of last 6-7 years is a must. And yeah it requires some memorizing as questions on scientific names of species are invariably asked every year.
Geology, I have no idea.
