    I am currently in the process of buying UKCAT and BMAT books for 2017 entry. I've read online that there are new UKCAT and BMAT tests. E.g. added section in UKCAT.

    What are so updated books to study from? I was going to buy the pink Kaplan UKCAT book but I am not sure if it is old or new.

    I'm in the same situation as you. I've heard that a new ISC book is being released soon so I'd say keep an eye out for it.
    Other than that, even older editions will suffice because the new UKCAT section of Decision Making will not be marked for the 2017 entry so all you need to prepare for are verbal, quantitative and abstract reasoning which are given in older books.

    Oh, and the SJT too :P

    The kaplan book is quite good, I used it last year and ended up with a better score than I could have imagined.

    UKCAT website always have mock exams for you to practice and I'm pretty sure they'll update it for the new tests

    From what i've heard....although the say GCSE level, most of the questions seem harder because apparently they can use GCSE content from any exam board, and also they often use GCSE content but apply it to an A-Level standard etc

    Yes, I would agree that some questions seemed more difficult because of studying different exam boards. I remember preparing with friends from other schools, so that we each had experience of various exam board material, and helped each other to understand!

    Hi, maybe have a look at the sample papers that the official BMAT website provides it might be helpful to gauge the depth of knowledge needed to answer some of the questions.

    The ISC UKCAT book is coming out next month, and I think there is a BMAT one coming out in the summer too.

    Think I would wait till after a level results day and see who is selling their BMAT study material cheaply as theres enough time between then and the exam to prepare.
