I want to sit the 2018 March GAMSAT in the UK and was wondering if anyone who has perversely sat and done well has any tips on how to prepare for the exam, especially section III. I would appreciate any recommended books/notes, as I'm still not completely sure what topics to cover for section III.

Also, I would really appreciate any tips on how long is a good amount of time to prepare for this exam?

Disclaimer: I sat the GAMSAT this September in London and know I haven't done well, especially section III killed me without mercy I also have the GOLD standard book, but didn't really use it much

hi, actually I haven't had the motivation to start yet, I know I'm also ashamed to admit it. How about yourself, have you started revising yet??

Aww thanks for the kind words, truly means a lot! It's good your starting to get the relevant materials together, I actually have bought the GOLD STANDARD book but i'm not sure how useful it will be. I need to make some revision time in my daily schedule for the GAMSAT and hopefully will be able to stick to revising if I keep reminding myself of why I wanted to take this exam in the first place.

Good luck to both of us, good speaking to you my fellow aspiring medic!

Have you figured out a revision strategy yet? I'm struggling here :'
My strategy is as follows; attempt practice questions, i.e. from Des O'Neill, then find relevant Khan Academy videos/ book to learn the topics in the questions and once i've learnt/revised the questions, I go back and attempt the questions again.

Because I get bored easily from going through textbooks or just learning material that doesn't seem relevant to anything I'm doing, I find that if I attempt the questions first, then by having a question that I need to find an answer to I tend to revise better. So, attempt questions first, then learn material and then attempt questions again.

Hope this helps!
