First of all, Welcome to the CSSForum!

Dekhain, none else can decide k whether u can prepare for CSS in 6 months or not. It all depends on you and JUST YOU. Only u can assess urself and ur ability to study and prepare for an exam.

Your optionals are quite fine.....a majority of candidates opts for one or more of these optionals. The books are as follows:

1. British History : as described in the same thread.

2. Geography:

Geography 1 and 2 by Deblij
Geography by Strahler
Geography of Pakistan by Huma Naz Sethi
Geography by Fazl-e-Karim
Any Geography book for A'Levels

3. Sociology:
Sociology by Horton and Hunt
Sociology by Iqbal Chaudhry (for BA or MA classes in Pakistan)

4. Journalism:
Exploring Journalism by Mirza (naam poora yaad nahi abhi)
Mass Communication by Imtiaz Shahid

Also explore this forum...u will get all the information abt exams and books...use the "search" option given at the top of each page....then post any query u have in ur mind !

ALLAH HAFIZ!

By the grace of Allah, i have passed the written test this year. Last year i scord 143 marks in British history, but i couldn't pass essay, but i did it this time. i will suggest some books which i read in order to prepare my own notes: (remember one thing: when u read thoroughly 4 or 5 very good books, u will not only achieve very good marks in subjective type but u can ans as many as 18 objective types. it happens to me)
so the books are:
1. History of England by P C. Thomas (U can get the copy of it from Quaid e Azam Library)
2. Mastering British History by Norman Lowe for GCSE (available in the market at a good book store)
3. British History by Bridshall Vaults
4. History of England and the Common Wealth by Walter P. Hall (it is not available in Pakistan. last edition was 1965, but u can get a copy of it from me, if u r in lahore. call me at 03004630544.) it is the key book and can make a difference b/w u and the other candidates.
Note: Do not rely over Qayyum, it is just a geggibnner's guide.

Best of luck

British history is easy to cover bcz it goes like a simple story.i think the candidates who are chosing this subject must follow British History by Sheikh Qayyum.it helps alot.

1. British History by THOMAS (only found with Old-book sellers)
2. Modern British History by NORMAN LOWE.

These 2 books are very comprehensive for the 2 papers of British History.
No need to go for any 3rd option.

yeah ammar with due respect.. the high -fi boox u mentioned are absolutely fine.. i ve gone through each one of em...
and after going through em i realized that they r fit for some Phd aspirant ... for a css one john thorne.. vd mahajan and shekikh qayyum work best cuz they let u relax and give u point to point relief... plus enuff knowledge that u can touch 140s.....
ths ma opinion... and an xpereince too1
i studied so hard for it .i do not know ma marks but yes i know atleast 7 ppl who had jus studied form sheikh qayyum and scored 130+
so whatever one may read..history is history. it wont change but the way the narrator xplainz changes...

May Alah be our companion always!
Regards
Amna!

Default my experience of B.history

Amna, u may be right but my experience is otherwise,
i read sheikh qayum word my word not one time but atleast three times and at the end of the day i got only (40+45 marks)
my papers went very well and i knew each and every question (almost) but i dont know why the examiner didnt give me credit (this time in 2008, u can check my marks sheet at www.fpsc.gov.pk and my roll no 1045)

Default the book delimma!!

aoa

yes u may b absolutely rite farrukh but .. i think i cud convey m point completely..

i wanted to say that first have a reading of a deatiled simple book.. like john thorne`s a history of england!
to grasp the themeatic approach fully and then in last days sheikh qayyum and jehangir will rock!
i used the terms last days and suggested to undergo a thorugh study first by mentioning "john thore"

Secondly it will be very interesting to know that a freind of mine who was sitting jus next to me was " rtafyin" sheikh qayyum.. and claimed proudly that she had not even touched some oder book for b hisistory except sheik qayyum..
unfortunately sshe didnt pass but she got 103 marks in b history with a toal of 585 i guess
her roll number was 2560 if u wana chk!

any ways i fully respects ur views.... it is the multi-dimensional mechanism of human brains that keep alive the beauty of conversation!

regards
Amna!
