Download Notes from GMAIL Id, Google Docs & Skydrive

Hi Everyone....I received a lot of request to send the notes shared here through email as many had problems downloading from rapidshare. Therefore I've created a new Gmail id & uploaded all the notes there. The username & password are given below

Logon to GMAIL & use the below username & password to login

Username: notes.ghanshyamthori
password: freeforall

Once you have logged in, you can download all the notes from the email attachments. Its a humble request not to change the password so that everyone can benefit. Thanks. Godspeed.

PS: I have noticed that some aspirants try to delete the posts or change password. Let me tell them that this short sighted tactic will do them no good. I can easily restore the posts by sending a mail again from my personal id. Moreover I can restore the password again though my alternate id given. So please don't waste your energy on changing passwords & deleting mails. Let everyone benefit. Its a request.

New Google Docs & Skydrive Download Link:
Also to tackle the above mentioned issue I have uploaded all my notes (including two markers of GS, important topics for geography & psychology, Resources for Essays) on Google Docs & Skydrive. The link for download is mentioned below:

Link of Google Docs to download all my notes at once:

Link of Skydrive to download all my notes in one go:!105&authkey=4RDeISwUt7k%24

For those who are not net savvy, let me tell them that the notes are zipped in a folder. You will need wizip or winrar software (which can be downloaded for free from anywhere or After installing wizip, you can right click on the zipped folder & select "Extract to here" & all the notes will appear in a normal windows folder. If you still have problems you can download from the email where the file is in pdf format as well as zip format.
I hope with this I have made the soft copy of my notes as accessible as possible. All the best.
