Khan academy is a great resource to prepare for the GAMSAT. However, we recommend also using multiple sources to learn concepts inorder to develop a well rounded understanding.

1. BBC Bitesize

The BBC Bitesize is a great tool to to help with revision and learning for all the sciences. Find free videos, step-by-step guides, activities and quizzes in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. It is a really good introductory resources for non-science students looking to build their foundation in the sciences.

4. Prof Dave Explains

Arguably one of the best YouTube resources for self-education in existence. Prof Dave covers core principles in a lot of subjects, including General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physics and Biology. His videos have just enough detail for high school and undergraduate students, but are visually engaging and general enough for the common viewer that just wants to learn a few things.
