    Hey Guys,

    I'm a final year Economics student with a younger brother (going into Upper 6th) interested in studying Geography.

    Does anyone have any tips on books, documentaries, magazines he should be reading/watching as a prospective student?

    Any sort of help would be highly appreciated!
