Regarding the material for anthropology, I referred different material available in market and made notes of each chapter in a short and to the point answers. I referred following sources while making my notes.
- BRAIN TREE material – 3 volumes ( 3rd one not too much Tribal part)
- VAID Notes ( Only socio-cultural part)
- IGNOU Material on anthropology
- Vajiram & Ravi Class notes
- Physical Anthropology – P Nath
- Tribal India – Nadeem Hasnain
- Virginius Xaxa Report by Govt of India
While making notes I tried to prepare content on each topic. I also tried to look at last 10 years questions related to that chapter and tried to answer them. I also saw the general trend in questions like how the questions are asked, like whether they were asked for 10 marks or 15 marks and made notes accordingly.
It was mostly like this. ( for example–1.3 Ethno-archaeology) Ethno-archaeology
Some parts of my anthropology notes…
During the test series, I felt that thinking about answer structure in examination hall consumed most time and also decreased the quality of answer. So I prepared a structure for each question for all chapters and pasted the structure as stick notes. I would read this structure again and again and by having look at structure I had complete idea of the entire answer.
I had my notes prepared for every topic and chapter. And also a had an answer structure for most questions. This helped me in repeated reading and presenting best answer. I suggest people preparing with anthropology to prepare their own short notes and do repeated readings.
Hope this will help you…
ALL THE BEST….
