I sat the GAMSAT in September for the first time. Despite a lot of revision and breadth of knowledge, I found the exam challenging (to say the least). I'd like to sit the exam again in March (2018) and plan to start revision around the end of October or Mid-Nov latest. I want to change my approach to revision this time to include WAY more revision doing papers/questions, as opposed to learning a tonne of topics (although understanding the topic really does help cut down on time).
I need help with a breakdown of what I should do, and how long I should spend each day to prepare for each section.
Strategy for:
S1: I think my S1 went okay, I'm not too stressed about this section. But I still have a lot of room for improvement - Need help with - Revision materials (What should I read? How much time should I spend per day/week for this section?)

S2: I really don't know how to prepare well for this section. Time just seemed to escape so fast in the real thing and I ended up writing a big, fat unstructured mess. I did write a few sample essays for prep. But I had to mark these myself and I didn't really know what to base the marking on etc.

S3: Do more graph analysis and interpretation, cover more maths/mental calculations. More time practising papers.

I have a semi-large library of resources and papers I've gathered from around the internet. I predominantly used Bozeman Science and Khan to revise topics for S3.

I'm also in the process of applying for GEM in the next academic cycle. The unis that I'm applying for also require the GAMSAT. How did u find the GAMSAT testing, process and overall experience. Also what sort of books and revision literature did u use?
