    It is a bit basic, but very good for the critical thinking section The questions in the end of unit assessments are not that well written, but for the most part it's good

    Another PPE applicant!!

    How's prep going?
    I mean, I'm not really sure on what I should be preparing! I'm trying to do some critical thinking stuff when I have free time, but I'm afraid I don't have a lot of that...

    Yeah - I guess that's all you can do really! I'm working through that Butterworth/Thwaites book too - it's alright...I haven't got onto the problem solving section bit yet but I hope it's good!

    I don't have a lot of free time either - just making the most of the half term now while I can. I still haven't finished reading the books on my PS...

    I think that's what most people are doing, although it's a textbook, so it's kinda pricey, especially due to UCAS robbing me of £19 :hmmm: I'll just do the two TSA tests in the next few weeks to get myself acquainted with the style of it, and then see how it goes on the day
