    Does anyone know any good books for the upcoming UKCAT and BMAT?
    This one looked pretty decent https://www.amazon.co.uk/Medical-Sch.../dp/1905812183
    however I'm very stingy with money and would like to hear any other advice before I spend anything

    The 1000Q book is the one I'd recommend for the UKCAT. I think BMAT books are a waste of money - just use the science guide they've posted online, past papers, TSA and critical thinking A-Level papers (the last two are helpful for section 1).

    Indeed, the 1000Q book you pointed out is used by most people as a starting point. Then depending on your budget, you can either get another book (e.g. Kaplan - but take the one with the yellow cover as the one with the red cover is now an old edition), or if you want more practice, go for an online resource such as Medify (which is good for everything except that it is missing two styles of questions for Abstract reasoning).

    I am not sure for BMAT yet because I am still toying with the idea of applying for a BMAT uni at all, but if you type BMAT into Amazon I am sure you will see a few books there.
