Also there is this other book of physical geography that is absolutely a delight to study: Certificate Physical and Human Geography by Goh Cheng Leong published by oxford university press. But I am not sure about its availibility. Stahler's physcial geography is not the end. If you dont like it, search for other options available in the market. But make sure you prepare all the 40 questions (20 for each paper) given in the exam cram series. It will guarantee a good paper.
Hope this helps a bit and wait for the input from other senior members and qualifiers

this time papers had clean bowled those who relied on CqS Competitive Questions. It took a heavy toll. None show go for short books. Evey one suffered due to that arm chair approach

Its better to first study a short book like "Physical Geography by Sarfaraz Bajwa" which gives an overall picture of the subject and later do study 1 extensive book like "Physical Geography by Deblij" or "Physical Geography by Strahler".

Try to learn the concept and don't try to cram anything except definitions. Try to related each and every concept so that whatever question appears on the paper you could solve it easily.

For paper 1 still Bajwa is enough even aftr 2010 paper provided u get some idea of what u r studing rather than blimd cram. Now next thing is the diff aptitudes of diff people. Diff people r comfortable with diff formats of buks. As far material is concern everybody knows Bajwa buk is just a notes from of De blijj nd some other material.

For paper 2 no specific buk cant be mentioned. u have to consult various sources. If im to name one then i guess Jahangir Sampal'z buk covers the maximum of all.
