@Aazaad Other than Patanjali notes, I referred to internet and books here and there wherever I felt a need. Did not cover any book cover to cover. This time, for paper 1, I am trying to supplement old material with content from plato.stanford, iep and extracts from primary texts wherever I feel that content or understanding is lacking. Haven't yet figured out a new strategy for paper 2.

Am also preparing for 2021

Can we have some daily questions from some good test series if somebody has access to them.

I also think we can discuss doubts etc here only. I appeared with philosophy in mains 2020. But got less marks than expected. After going through Himanshu Gupta’s answers for paper 1, I think my main problem was lack of “content density” (or basically use of a lot of keywords). I also may not have fully addressed the demand of the question at some places. I couldn’t study philosophy for last few months for some reason. Now I am updating my notes with better content and trying to appear for tests regularly. Still have to figure out what went wrong in paper 2.
