    I'm really interested in studying medicine in the U.K, and I'm aware that one of the university requirements is the UKCAT, used as admission test.
    I've understood that it is not necessary any kind of preparation before sitting the test but just 20 hours of self-study.
    Is there anyone, foreign like me, who has already sat for the test and is able to give me some advice about it?
    Is it so difficult as they say?

    The ISC 600 UKCAT practice questions book is your best friend.

    Medify is the only way but don't even think about the UKCAT until a max of 6 weeks before the exam probably 4 is plenty

    I used the Kaplan book two weeks before my test and that worked very well for me timings are the main thing you would need to practice.

    I would advise the Kaplan book + Medify (the shortist subscription. Longer subscriptions do not access more stuff. Just for longer, I believe). The other books are getting out of date and there are some question types that are not in the 600 questions book. It needs good solid practice over about 24 - 30 hours in total spread over 2 - 3 weeks.
