Yes you can prepare it at home, Little bit biological background will obviously help you. Recommended books are "Basics of Forestry and allied sciences" by Masood A.A Quraishi, Also take a look at "comprehensive forestry" by Syed Baqir Ali Shah....

Forestry can be covered by you, go through the contents and try to study the subject in a broader perspective without going into minute details. Consult technical terms where required.

Rocksever has guided well. You people can cover Forestry easily while staying at home. Get two volumes of Dr. Masood A A Qureshi and also a quick review of Jehnagir BookDepot.

Good luck.

I have no background of Forestry, all I know abt plants is what I studied back in high school. Then I switched to medicine. Is it wise for me to take forestry?

I went through forestry's syllabus and I thought it was pretty reasonable. But when I went through its pastpapers, I felt I was going to have a heart attack :p. They were quite scary. So I want to ask:

1.A person who doesn't have much knowledge about Pakistan's forests or forestry in that matter, will be able to cope with this subject? If yes, then can you suggest some of the best books, please?

2. What are the maximum marks that one can get in this subject? What has been the past trend?

You can opt but being a medical student you do have many other options too and for selecting any subject go through its course outlines and past papers and then make the final decision.

Wish you luck!

You may consult "Basics of Forestry and Allied Sciences" by "Masood A. A. Qureshi" Vol.I and Vol.II plus read the articles related to forestry in newspapers and/or on internet.

1 . No . Not really , you should have a knowledge about forests of Pakistan . And , for this purpose you can consult this books "Forests and forestry in Pakistan by M I Sheikh"

2. As answered by S.Bukhari .
