Procedure to follow(how to read)
1. Start with NCERT of class 6. Don't make notes, don't memorize anything at all. Just read it once.
2. Now start with NCERT of class 12(part 1). Follow similar to step 1.
3. What you've achieved from this is that whenever you come across any dynasty,coinage,veda,etc etc. you'll be able to relate and recall.
4. Now you've promoted yourself to read R.S.SHARMA. From now on you can do away with the NCERTs on ancient history because you've successfully picked up the preliminary concepts.
5. Go onwards with RS SHARMA since now.
A lot of information is given starting from ice age till end of ancient India. Everything is explained in very simple narration also accompanying good critical arguments( although some arguments and views or stand taken by author are different) . Overall it was a great insightful reading.
