Firstly, CLAT is much easier to crack as compared to JEE as the difficulty level and competition in JEE is much higher.
JEE-Mains consists of 90 MCQ-type questions ( 30 each from Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics) based on 12th standard syllabus. 4 marks are awarded for a correct answer and 1 mark is deducted for a wrong answer. The exam is out of 360 Marks.
CLAT has 200 MCQ-type questions ( 40 each from English Comprehension and Logical Reasoning, 20 from Elementary Mathematics and 50 each from Legal Aptitude and Current & World Affairs). 1 mark is awarded for every correct answer and 0.25 marks are deducted for every wrong answer. The exam is out of 200 marks.
Yes I'll enlist down some of the top books that will help you in the CLAT preparation. For improving your English and Grammar you can go with High School English Grammar by Wren and Martin, you can take help of Word Power made Easy by Norman Lewis as well. For Analytical and Logical reasoning, go with RS AGGARWAL AND MK PANDEY books. For Legal Aptitude, AK Bharadwaj is quite famous.
