I am yet to enter uni for bioscience. I wanted to write GAMSAT in my second year. So I want to ask which prep books and materials are good and where can I get some? How much will it cost me and is there anyone who have second hands books there? Also is there practical questions as same as the exams structures available and where can I get it? Are all these in form of PDFs?? Thank you for your response

Griffith's GAMSAT review is the best place to start (https://www.gamsatreview.com/optin) - it's cheap and gives a good overview of the topics covered in the exam and includes a practise test.

As a non-scientist I used the Gold Standard book, but I know this isn't approved by everybody. This is a bit pricier at ~£100, but you can find second hand copies online.

Des O'Neill papers are good, albeit difficult. They don't do up to date papers anymore, but you can find PDFs online.

The closest thing to the actual exam are the ACER practise papers. You can download some free practise questions to see what kind of difficulty it is. I would save the full tests for when you are nearer to sitting the exam.

Hope this helps!

Agree with Maraki, the best is the Gamsat Review I also found it the most up to date. After that Des O'Neill stuff if you can get it apart from those two I'd just use normal textbooks and the free stuff you can find online. Best of luck!
