    I didn't read any books especially for my application, but there are some great popular medicine books such as the man who mistook his wife for a hat, the private life of the brain, and articles in the student BMJ (free online on www.studentbmj.com) that I read just out of interest. I've also heard that confessions of a junior doctor is good too, but I haven't read it yet.

    thanks for the advice - i was going to read this book the selfish gene, but have decided to go for something more medical...as it seems a bit repetivie (but obviously its very good blabla...) also - seeing as you got an offer from cambridge (EEE!!:eek: how did that happen?!) could you give me some advice for preparing for BMAT and also my a levels - i dont know whether to drop physics (and do bioo, chem and latin) or drop latin and do the 3 sciences (for A2...) ,, i have posted this in another thread but...thought u could give me some advice!! cheers!

    i didn't read anything, i tried to read the selfish gene but i am still on chapter 2 or 3. i think the problem is i already agree with whatever he has to say so it doesnt really interest me. i'd say the best thing is to check out http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/default.stm as that's a goldmine, and i frequently checked out http://www.newmediamedicine.com/foru...play.php?f=161
    which links to interesting news articles. i didnt use that much in interviews but it always helps knowing about current medical news since it gives you lots to talk about and it means you have less chance of being stumped in a question. i was even asked "what has interested you recently in medicine" in my interview. i read bits of the bmj too but it's quite long and can be hard to get hold of so you can always check the website
