I never studied geography before, i opted for it out of interest. If you are interest in geography and feel it will be a pleasure preparing it, then go for it. Since I hadn't studied geography before it took me a lot of time gathering material, arranging notes. But i had the time. I started preparing for 2008 exam from June 2007. That whole summer i spent fishing out books, simultanouesly searching the internet. For physical geography it was difficult to get a good book initially. I prepared chapters from a Pakistani author's book and there were so many mistakes in (especially spelling mistakes) that at the end of everyday i would search every term on google to make sure what i am learning is correct. Then i came across the Exam Cram series for geography, it really helped. The Oxford University on Physical Geography i came across by accident just 2 months before the exam.
I had to reprepare most of physical geography chapters again from it, it didnt take so long as the concepts were already formed. For geography paper one I didnot prepare climatic regions at all (it takes a lot of your time and if you look at past papers there is just one question from it, you can prepare its MCQ's from Exam Cram Objective section).
I didnt take tuition for any of my subjects. I consulted cssforum, google and very rarely an uncle of mine who is a CSP. The notes i mentioned are all from wikipedia, from my review of past papers for geogprahy i prepared notes for topics not in any of the books. Its just that they are properly formatted. Give me your email address i will email them to you.

Apart from the books mentioned in the syllabus section there are few books that are mostly recommended

1 - Every day science by Kashmiri (Latest Edition)
2 - Every day science by Imtiaz Shahid
3 - Encyclopedia of Every day science by Sohail Bhatti

I am personally using the 3rd one, however it is always a good idea to consult more than one reliable resources so you should make use of the internet as well for the latest changes that these books may not include

As far as the time table is concerned, I think that varies a lot from person to person. In my personal opinion you should be giving around 6-8 hours to your study per day.

Wish you all the best for your CSS

One thing i would like to add for psychology preparation, visit the website http://wps.ablongman.com/ab_gerrig_p...95187-,00.html

This is the companion website of Psychology and Life by Gerrig and Zimbardo. Select the chapters you are preparing and go through their flashcards, MCQ's and True/False. This will be really helpful for objective preparation.

@amubarak

In your opinion should some body go for psychology if he doesn't has any background in it.
