    Hello!

    Right im taking my UKCAT in the summer for 2011 entry and so I was wondering what is the best book to practise for the UKCAT as there seems to be a lot of UKCAT books around.

    Also bit random but if I am applying this year as in for the deadline October 15th 2011 do I say for entry in 2011 or 2012?

    Thanks for all the help and rep for anyone that helps

    You're not applying for 2011 entry, you're applying for 2012 entry. Best UKCAT book by far is this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/into-Medical.../dp/1905812094

    Yep - the guy above is spot on. All you need is that book and the practice papers on the UKCAT website, and you're sorted

    I'll post how I got the UKCAT download to work. I have windows vista, but I think it will be similar for windows 7. I'm going to tell you a bunch of steps where you type

    First you have to have downloaded it from the ukcat website; it shows up on your desktop but clicking it doesn't work...

    hit start, type cmd, then right click on the cmd program and click run as administrator

    A black box should pop up

    type cd\ then hit enter

    type cd users then hit enter

    type cd public then hit enter

    then type cd desktop then hit enter

    Your screen should say C:\Users\Public\Desktop

    type dir then hit enter

    You should come up with a list of programs, the UKCAT should be on there.

    Type the first few letters of the program name and hit the tab key

    This should start the practice test page. It this doesn't work you may need to substitute your computer user name instead of public in the directions above. If this doesn't work then don't ask me, I won't know how to do it, my computer genius friend told me how to do it.

    Good luck to all on the UKCAT and applications!
