I laminated two sheets of MDF once and I pre-drilled countersunk holes on one sheet (about 8 inches on center).

I painted on the glue and then drove in all the screws. As I recall I just left the screws in. No clamps.

To make my job easier I drove several thin brads into once surface and clipped them so only about 1/16” was showing. It kept the boards from sliding around on the glue. This is a process I use frequently when gluing up. The nails never show and are not part of the joinery; just part of the positioning.
