Okay, sure 😀 But I already have many books. The truth is that I don't know how to make "notes" for any subject. So many things written in these books.
for example, "Scope of Civil Engineering", this topic is 9 to 10 pages long.

It's always better that you make notes on your own, ready-made notes won't help you much.

Surveying Vol .I & II
Author: Dr. B. C. Punmia

This will cover all that you need to learn in Surveying. It is really interesting. The book makes it so clear. Take notes side by side with page numbers, so that you can refer in future. This will make the concepts clear and easy to refer. Readymade notes will not be clear unless you already know the concepts.
