CLAT Logical Reasoning Preparation Tips and Tricks
As already mentioned earlier, the logical reasoning of CLAT is all about practice. Candidates must understand the pattern of questions from CLAT mock tests and note them down. After identifying the topics, candidates must practice the similar questions along with other related questions. Below are some important preparation tips for the CLAT logical reasoning section.
Solve past 10 years question papers of CLAT
CLAT has moved from the previous test modalities and introduced comprehension type questions. But, still, the practice of logical reasoning questions from previous year question papers will be beneficial. CLAT sample papers (new and previous years) are, in fact, one of the best ways to prepare yourself for legal reasoning.
Do not mug up - Apply logic and tricks
The candidates are tested for their ability to apply logic and reason. Mugging up the patterns and facts is not recommended. The reasoning and logical ability can be developed only with practice. Candidates need to practice a lot and maintain their momentum until the day of the exam.
Answer from the passage not from outside
CLAT logical reasoning tests your ability to think logically. Candidates must answer from the information given in the passage only irrespective of going into the factual correctness or incorrectness. If the questions are simple, they should be answered simply, without complicating the arguments. For example, the statement says 2 plus 2 is 8, consider it true (even though it is not true) and apply logic accordingly.
Learn Time Management
The CLAT logical reasoning section is tricky and time-consuming. Candidates must understand that if they go with the normal speed, they wouldn’t be able to attempt all questions of logical reasoning of CLAT, even if they know the correct answers of all 28 or 30 odd questions. Hence, learning time management is an important aspect of preparation. Candidates must focus on increasing their speed of reading the passages and solving the questions while maintaining accuracy.

Hope you find it helpful.
is it good to go out another city for clat preparation, because the place where I live has no facility but after I clear this exam , again I have to somewhere else for law. what to do? which city is best for clat preparation.
Well preparing for clat is also possible without coaching but it do require extra work as you will have to collect all the required materials such as notes and books by yourself, where in a coaching centre you are provided all the required materials.
However it isn't necessary to go to a different city to prepare untill and unless you are not ready. You have made a very good point here that for law college you will eventually have to go to a different city. Well if you are ready and comfortable than go for it. I will recommend you to go for delhi, as it has some of the best coaching centres and crowd is also good.
However if you are not ready to go to a different city you can also try online coaching programs. In offline coaching centres you get to interact with competitive crowd which pushes you up further to work hard however in online classes it isn't possible.
Anyways I hope you will make best decision for yourself. Hope you find it helpful.
