Follow these Preparation Tips for Law Entrance Exam and ace your score in Math section of CLAT and DULLB Exam.

I)Getting the best book for reference and topics that are not to be missed
The preparation book which I recommend for the law entrance exams is RS Aggarwal. It more than suffices, is designed for law entrances and you need not look beyond this book because it covers everything. If you absolutely must miss some topics from this book then you could practice only the following topics.

II)Practice and revise
My maths preparation tips begin with saying that usually, you should solve 20 questions from each topic. Once you finish 5 questions you will start finding it interesting, then move to the next 5 questions. By the time you finish all 20 questions you would gain confidence that you will be able to solve this question in the exams. Then revise before you completely become lost again. Two revisions mean you will definitely score on that question in the exam

III) Past year papers
The other thing which becomes very important to do as part of AILET preparation tips especially is solving past year papers. Questions are often picked up from these papers with just the digits changed.

IV)Mock Tests
Next, appear for a mock to see how far ahead your progress is. Take a couple more CLAT Mock Test, and solve the whole Maths section in 15 minutes.

V)Learning from mistakes
Learn from the mistakes till you are sure that you will not repeat the same mistake in the exam.

VI)Study buddy
Study partners help. If you are not adept at Maths and your partner needs help with legal reasoning then studying and solving the doubts of each other can make you an expert in both subjects. Plus, when you teach someone something then that adds to your preparation in a big way as well.

VII) Learn the formulae but absolutely do not mug up concepts. Concepts have to be understood and not learned by rote.

VIII) Let us also eliminate the negative marking situation. This is an important aspect of CLAT preparation tips. In Maths it is easy to know when your answer is right and when it is not, therefore, answer the question when you are sure. If the calculation you do makes you arrive at an answer which is close to one of the choices given then mark that choice.

IX)Coaching which helps you with tricks - The last resort
If you are unsure even after this then, by all means, join coaching, attend classes religiously and ask teachers to solve all your doubts as unsolved doubts create panic. Ask your teachers for shortcuts which are easy to fathom and to apply. This will help you save time.
Sometimes certain questions are best solved by using the answer choices in the calculation. For example, if you need to find the total amount of money with a person initially with details given of the money being spent on certain different things then start by assuming every answer choice to be correct and you will get to know which options are wrong and what the correct answer is.

At other times you have to form a linear equation. For example, when you need to find the total number of notes in different denominations present in one sum of money. So, if the notes of Rs.2, Rs. 5 and Rs. 10 are present in the ratio 5: 8: 10 and the total money is Rs. 4000 then the equation becomes Rs. 2*5 x + Rs. 5* 8 x+ Rs. 10* 10 x= Rs. 4000 which means 10x +40x+100 x= 4000 or 150 x= 4000. Now you can easily find the number of notes of each denomination.

You will learn these and other tricks when you go for coaching, and you will learn that there is a trick for every type of question. There is nothing more interesting than Maths once you get over your fear of the subject. So, all the best and may Maths be your score booster.
