- Paid Rs.279/- for this 2nd edition which is 2018 printed (printed MRP is Rs.299/-)
- I am not sitting for any competition but bought this to enhance my GK.
- This is 160pages of pure knowledge and comes with 2 large maps (World and India) and a CD.
- Primary focus on India (physical, political,climate, geology, physiography, basins, vegetation, forest etc etc etc), but doesn't miss out on rest of the world (see Content image posted with this review).
- The last 23 pages have MCQ style questions.
- The Atlas stays permanently next to my bedside and I use it to look up places I read/see/hear about.
- Haven't used the CD, but I could hazard a guess that it will have more in-depth knowledge and will be useful for scholarly activities.
Irrespective of whether you are entering a competitive exam or not, I recommend this Atlas to enhance your knowledge.
And coming from Oxford Press this is a quality item with good , colour print.
Don't forget to press the 'helpful' button if this review has been :)
1.The paper quality is very good.Its very confortable when you turn the pages.Smooth pages.
2. The visibility is also very good.The contrast of colours used in maps are brilliant .you can easily differentiate differnce via colours in map.
3.Atlas also contains some questions of multiple choice for competitive exams practice.number of questions are also in much quantity.
4. 2 big maps are also provided inside the book that one can paste on their study room.The maps are really helpful.I have also pasted it in my room.
5.The book also gives a CD-ROM in which all study materials regarding maps is given in digital format.if you are comfortable in reading maps on laptop or computer then you can use CD.
6.font size is also perfect as it doesn't stress your eyes when you read maps .
With so much properties I could not find any flaw in this product.I will recommend this atlas for map related studies.
The emphasis on empires and kingdoms has an unabashed North Indian view, or NCERT view, whichever you prefer. For instance, maps show even Ghazni's empire, of all things, in special color whereas the major Tamil and Kannada empires, which essentially ruled the whole of Deccan continuously for 1500 years or more till Mughals, Marathas and Europeans overpowered them, and contributed to Indian art, literature and culture immensely, are simply clubbed as "others" with the name smacked across the general region with no special color. (the only saving grace is the prominent mentioning of the Vijayanagara empire). This was both disappointing and enraging at the same time. Half of Indian history continues to be underrepresented. Is this what young students have to know and learn?
Now, I understand that these maps are only additional information while the essence of an atlas is the physical geography, but if they commit to include human geography as well it better be balanced with credit being given where it is due. Based on this, I am now unsure if other information is represented adequately balanced or is lopsided as well. So I give it only two stars.
Overall, serves the purpose of an atlas well.
This book is better than school atlas, bcz in this student atlas book one side political and another side physical map has given separately, which give you a better understanding of map. Whereas in school atlas combine physical and political map has given in one map only, that become hotchpotch.
