I wouldn’t be divulging the post-entrance affair,that is for you to find out once you get through the exam!
Let me be very clear,EVERY EXAM REQUIRES PLANNING AND STRATEGY,there is no escaping it,regardless of the difficulty level of the exam.
The exam,Â DU LLB 3 year entrance exam testÂ is divided into four parts:
1. Grammar,Vocabulary and Comprehension
2. Quantitative aptitude
3. Logical reasoning
5. Legal aptitude and awareness
Time for preparation : 1 month is more than enough to go in the exams with guns blazing.
I have mentioned how to go about preparing each section below and the source of preparation/book to refer is mentioned at the last.
Grammar,Vocabulary and Comprehension
English basically is of class 10th level,wherein comprehension,questions on sentence arrangement/correction,vocabulary constitute the part.
Vocabulary part comprises of,antonyms,synonyms,substitution word questions.
Believe me,no can master vocabulary in just matter of few days. Even mugging up the list of words given in the guide book,wouldn’t do. Although,they are some consolation to the lack of vocab.
So,not just for this exam,make voracious reading a habit.
If still you need a book and have a good cramming up capacity,then I would suggest Word Power Made Easy by Norman Lewis.
Not a tough nut to crack,not in this exam,atleast! So,chillax!
Basic arithmetic,no geometry , no trignometry,just basic stuff.
Average,profit n loss,percentage,interest,time & work,speed,time & distance.
What you need to do is , just brushen up the formulas and attempt the questions from the previous years papers.
TIP : DON’T LEAVE THIS SECTION! Because,even some part of logical reasoning consists of this portion,so prepare!
People tend to chicken out,upon seeing maths,but remember this section will keep you parallel if not ahead,in the competition.
First timers : Go through the logical reasoning concepts first (THEY’RE EASY,SO NO WORRIES!),solve the exercises and then you’re good to go!
They’re as fun as they sound! No serious mathematics involved! Simply,a bit of fun exercise for your brain.
Experianced players: Those with some background i.e. know how,as to how to go about the questions,Solve questions from PYP’s and you’re done.
Static as well as current G.K. make up this part. Subjects like polity (Constitution),economics (Economic terms),science,geography (Largest,Biggest type questions mainly),history (Modern mainly) constitute static part of the paper.
UN organisations need to be prepared with special focus,as they come both in G.K. as well as Legal Knowledge section.
Apart from that current affairs,mainly recent appointments example: appointments in domestic organisations of India,abroad ranging from political appointment to sports etc. and places in news , example: Which place/country sufferred earthquake or attacks or a new govt. Has been formed etc.
Awards,deaths,latest books,mainly by leaders or ministers are some other basis of questions in the paper.
Legal aptitude and awareness
This section obviously holds special importance with respect to this exam.
Learn and understand the concepts i.e. torts,criminal law etc. Whilst keeping the important terms in mind because they tend to ask the same sometimes. Apart from that,you’ll be asked questions wherein Principle pertaining to the question will be given and the factual situation will be provided.
DO NOT! Use your knowledge and apply to the question while solving it,just focus on the principle,as to what it says,keep in mind the players in order to be announced guilty.
Legal Maxims for example amicus curiae (Friend of court) etc. Should be prepared,you can find the link to the important ones here (CLICK HERE) ,legal vocabulary (CLICK HERE),United Nations Organisations (CLICK HERE) and most importantly,Indian Constitution should be the priority.

How to prepare :
Universal Guide for DU Law Entrance is the best book in the market to prepare for the exam apart from that Singhal Guide by Anand Mishra is yet another good book to prepare.
Practice previous years question papers (GIVEN IN THE ABOVE BOOKS) ,QUESTIONS REPEAT!
If only Law Faculty doesn’t plan onto taking aspirants with surprise!
So,to be on safer side,not only solve PYP’s dilligently but also go through the guide religiously.
