The BMAT book published by ISC Medical is the current Amazon Best seller to prepare for the BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT). In this article we review the book and give our thoughts.
The 700 BMAT practice questions book is set to release on the 1st of August 2016 on Amazon, it is the second edition of the ‘400 BMAT Practice Questions’ book, which was one of the best-selling BMAT books last year I used the 1st edition to prepare for the test, it was an excellent resource and I believe the second edition will be no exception.
The Get Into Medical School series is published by ISC Medical who are one of the UK’s leading coaching company for entry into UK medical schools and also provide medical interview training. The book will replicate the breadth and depth of the different types of questions that can be asked in the test and will also provide a good spectrum of difficulties candidates will expect in the BMAT. The book will contain over 700 practice questions covering the three sections of the exam, detailed explanations, and substantial input from official BMAT examiners and previous BMAT candidates. The book will contain a substantial amount of material to practice all three sections of the BMAT and will help candidates familiarise themselves with the various styles of questions they may encounter in the exam and all the potential traps that can be laid by the examiners. It also includes an all new marked question format, a mock exam, as well as comprehensive, fully explained answers, tips, and techniques.
- Over 700 practice questions with detailed explanations
- Includes helpful exam strategies and time saving techniques
- Substantial amount of preparation material
- Vast range of difficulty in practice questions
- Mock Exam included
- Some of the subject-matter covered, particularly for section 2 seemed a bit too in-depth.
I would strongly recommend getting this book to prepare for the BMAT. The book leads you through each section of the exams and covers different types of question in depth with hundreds of practice questions. It is an ideal tool for preparing for the BMAT. With this book, you’ll learn how to use your time in the test efficiently and maximise your score in each section.
