Presently, it is very tough to get the job in the higher education. It is because that the University Grants Commission, the supreme body of higher education, has imposed new terms and conditions for the eligibility of lectureship. A national level test is conducted by the UGC twice in a year. This test is equally important for the eligibility of lectureship and Junior Research Fellowship. There are three papers for appearing in the test. First paper has general nature, e.g., IQ, reasoning aptitude and general awareness. Second paper includes the objective questions of the professional paper selected for the examination. Fifty questions are given. Third paper has a descriptive nature.
Fortunately, geography is an interdisciplinary subject and its subject matter includes the all-NET examinations conducted by Council of Scientific Industrial Research (CSIR), Indian Council of Agricultural Science (ICAR) and University Grants Commission (UGC). It means that a student of geography can appear in all the three NET examination conducted by the three scientific agencies.
The present effort aims to collect the huge information of geographic knowledge according to the newly revised syllabus in a book form. Previously, the syllabus of geography was limited to human geography. Now, it includes the physical portion of the geography and makes a wide and complete syllabus.
This book would be a milestone for those students who have geography as a professional subject. The present study is based on intensive and extensive nature of information collected from different sources. The Author of the book himself is NET qualified, working as an Assistant Professor of Geography. Answers of the multiple questions are given in the end of each chapter with wide explanation of selected questions.
In the last but not the least, I hope that the student of geography will definitely lead the way to success in terms of NET examination and knowledge of geography after going through details of this book.
