How to prepare for clat 2020? Which books and study material is the best for clat examination? Please suggest me.

Mayank Chowdhary 15th Nov, 2019

Get focused from today itself... Stay honest with yourself I'll say that is Quality matters over Quantity. So know what and how are you studying and follow the schedule and timetable that you make.

For the books I will tell you to go with Word Power made easy by Norman Lewis and a book of English and Grammar by Wren and Martin for English subject. Coming to the next subject which is Logical Reasoning, go for RS AGGARWAL boook. A modern approach to logical reasoning by MK Pandey is also another good book.  For Maths, again go with RS AGGARWAL. And for the Legal Aptitude, go with Pearson and AP Bharadwaj.

For the last subject that is GK and current affairs, read Pearson and Lucent for GK and for current affairs, stay updated by all the ways you can that is by seeing news, reading newspapers, or reading blogs and articles.

Is the preparation for clat just like preparation course for jee?

Arya 13th Nov, 2019

The Common Law Admission Test is held every year for admissions to the  21 National Law Universities in India and is starkly different from the Joint Entrance Examination, which is an annual exam for admissions to various Engineering, Architecture and Pharmacy colleges of India.

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.
