How to prepare for law exams?
I get emails asking this question so many times that I decided to answer it here. So read on...
All Universities are different and their pattern of question papers is different. Study techniques for them can be quite different. Most of the Universities fall in the following two categories:
Indore University pattern:
Some Universities like Indore University ask only lengthy essay type questions. You have to do any 5 out of 10 questions in 3 hrs. I find this format extremely boring and outdated.
How to prepare:
Since you have to do only 5 questions out of 10, you can easily leave a lot of topics. Go through your syllabus and previous years question papers and find out the topics that are asked repeatedly. But you must cram every thing about the topics that you are picking up.
Mumbai University pattern:
Some Universities such as Mumbai University ask a good mix of objective, short answer type, and long answer type questions. I believe, this is a better format. The student has to learn the whole syllabus (no topic can be left).
How to prepare:
Go through the syllabus and read all the topics from multiple books. Solve previous years question papers.
Which books should I read?
I don't know all the books that are available for any given subject. So I can't suggest which is the best. I usually read from multiple books because some topics are dealt better in one book and some in other. So my suggestion is to pick up a book and see if you like it and if it deals with all the topics that you need well. Go to the college library and check out other books as well. Usually, you can figure out whether a book is good enough or not after reading a chapter or two.
Thanks for your notes. I don't see any notes on XYZ subject. Can you please send it to me?
This is another question that I get repeatedly. Due to time constraints I wasn't able to prepare notes for some subjects. So if you don't see notes for a particular subject/topic, then that's because I don't have it. All the material that I have is here on this site.
