Default Help required regarding covering syllabus from textbooks

Aoa,
I am appearing in KPKPMS 2018 examinations and have opted for Sociology as an optional subject. I was recommended to study from Sociology by Horton and Hunt by someone. Overall I like the book as it is easy to understand but it does not seem to cover the whole syllabus (provided below) of KPKPMS. It also has a lot of seemingly extraneous chapters in it too regarding the syllabus. I was hoping someone would kindly help me with which chapters would be relevant to me with regards to KPKPMS and which ones should I skip. Also could you kindly tell me from where should I cover the residual topics listed in the syllabus? Thank you. Your guidance is appreciated.

Default Sociology notes/book

I want the topics to be covered in a compact manner and for that, if you can, please suggest me a book which can highlight the all the main aspects to be covered. I don`t mind detailed readings for understanding later.
