What are the features of CLAT 2022 best books?

  1. Contain few to no errors - Books that are placed in this category will contain few errors, be it grammatical, conceptual, or otherwise. This means the candidate won't be misled and hence won't have to spend precious time unlearning the wrong things.
  2.  Include examples and illustrations - Normal or ordinary study material will simply explain a concept in pure text and not have any visual elements for easy understanding. However, quality CLAT 2022 study material will contain examples, graphs, images, and other such things to explain and drive home a concept. These elements not only make understanding easier, even the difficult ones, but also help in retention.
  3. Published by well-known authors and publishers - Typically well recommended books are published by well-known authors and publishers. You can also read reviews of a book to check how it is viewed by the student and academic community.
  4. Contain problem sets - These books will also contain question banks at the end of each chapter or probably at the end of the book. The CLAT 2022 aspirant can solve these problems and can learn to solve problems using concepts discussed in the chapter. 
  5. Written as per the syllabus - The problem with many books is they don't follow the updated CLAT syllabus 2022. So, such books end up doing more harm than good. The CLAT 2022 good books will be written as per the current syllabus and are therefore should be used as reference material.
