    i knew that before looking at the book

    tbh, i look at all these faces and i think

    i made every wrong choice a sixth former could make

    i messed away all my time

    and frankly, i can't stand the face i see in the mirror

    as you get old in life, things get taken from you, but that's part of life

    you only learn that, when you start losing oppurtnities

    you learn that lifes a game of inches

    life, just like medicine is a game of inches

    i mean the margin for error is SO SMALL

    half a second to early too late, you don't quite make it

    I get so happy when I see the pattern in the AR section! Except sometimes I think I've got it, and it's completely different to what it says in the answers :lol: If I do the QR section in the book properly, I do it correctly, but it takes forever. I don't know how I'm gonna improve by August :erm:

    Anybody considering taking UKCAT preperation courses. They seem overpriced but I suppose they would help as I am completely awful. I am talking about Kaplan 2 day courses.
    I have a thread about this.

    You... :rant:

    Sorry, I'm just jealous.
    And the 600Q book is good, just don't do what I did and attempt working the first couple of quantitative exercises on paper and then wonder why it takes so long and the answers are still wrong.

    I find AR a test of imagination, or maybe madness, one of the two.

    Guessing your still doing your exams, unlucky man
    So does the 600Q book have like explanations and stuff which you read through, and then do practice questions or what? How would you advise someone to read it?

    It first introduces you to the section and gives some tips on how to answer them and follows if with quite a number of exercises. There are then answers after the exercises with explanations so it's very good. I think there's full papers at the back as well but I haven't had the chance to read that far yet Still got 9 exams to go.
