What books are the best?I've heard there's a new spec, which books are best and most reliable/representative?
Thanks a lot!
Also any online things like Medify? I'd rather not however because it's not on computer, but for learning i wouldn't mind.

I know this was posted 2 weeks ago but we still have time until the BMAT so thought I could be of help. I'm actually on a bit of a break from revising biology for the BMAT as I type this.

This link has a list of topics that have come up in the past papers. http://www.bmatcrashcourse.com/bmat-section-2-syllabus/

What I am doing is going through the list and using BBC Bitesize to make a PowerPoint with everything on it. I've found BBC Bitesize amazing, you can Google 'bbc bitesize shivering' and you'd get some notes on the role of shivering in temperature regulation.

There are these: http://www.bmatcrashcourse.com/hormones-notes.pdf
http://www.bmatcrashcourse.com/electricity-notes.pdf

There is also this: http://www.bmatcrashcourse.com/bmat-...cification.pdf but it is an old specification and it has probably changed since then, also a lot of it has never come up before. Which is why you may as well look at the first link first and then this one.

Obviously, doing past papers is a good idea, you can find some here: http://www.blackstonetutors.co.uk/fr...st-papers.html

It's hard when there aren't many worked solutions out there, I would suggest utilising TSR and random online things, like this: http://www.bmatcrashcourse.com/bmat-...-solutions.pdf

If you find anymore worked solutions, could you please send me them?

I have the 'Preparing for the BMAT' book by Cambridge Assessment. But, to be honest, while you do need good technique this can be gained through doing past papers. Also, you need to learn the GCSE stuff and know how to write the essays as well (I'd suggest researching around some of the topics if you're struggling to answer them).

If I think of anything else, I will tell you.

P.S. I haven't yet ever sat the BMAT for real. I am simply giving the advice I have found through research and through speaking to other people. (This feels slightly like a disclaimer...)

Good Luck!

This website is good for helping refresh your memory of the physics stuff covered in BMAT, especially if you haven't taken physics to AS.

(P.S. This thread has glitched my notifications... It's keeps saying 'New Quote in...' but there isn't and it won't go away... How do I fix this? Anyone know?) - Fixed it.
