*** Friend my suggestion to those who feel bored while studying this subject that do read practice manual at least as its easy for you to read syllabus in question answer format and almost 60-70% course covered in practice manual. And i am sure if you do complete practice manual you can score 50+ in this subject. But make sure you will not do selective study in it.
