If you’re preparing for CLAT and other law entrance exams, your preparation and revision strategy should be very strong to beat the tough competition. You’ll have to start preparing as early as possible and then move on to the revision process. Revision is very important from the examination point of view as it can help you score the marks you want to secure the limited seats.
Sources to Revise
The sources of revision should be concise, clear, and correct. You should revise Current Affairs and General Knowledge daily and also practice questions from other subjects. Many students receive small booklets from coaching centers, and for others, they can use Norman Lewis for Vocabulary, Lucent for basic static GK, monthly compilations for Current Affairs, etc. Please make sure you use just one source for revision and do not switch over multiple sources as it can cause great confusion.

About the CLAT
CLAT consists of five sections, i.e. General Knowledge, Legal Reasoning, Verbal Ability, Logical Reasoning, Comprehensive English & Quantitative Ability.

Mastering any areas like legal or logical reasoning also demands a lot of time and an early start.
