    GAMSAT Section III

    Question 1.

    You receive a Gradmed prospectus in the post, you also receive a quote for a new fitted kitchen. Which is more expensive?

    A. The Gradmed course
    B. The fitted kitchen
    C. Can't tell (because after seeing how much a Gradmed course costs you have an MI and have to be carted off by ambulance)

    Ok so I'm being facetious, but the Gradmed courses turn out to be WAY more than I could have imagined.

    To those of you who have done the GAMSAT what prep materials can you recommend? In particular for the Chemistry and Physics questions? Did a bit of Chemistry in Uni but not much (my background is nursing) last did Physics at GCSE (we're talking 12-14 years ago now). I've seen some people recommending the Griffiths guide-any good?

    Given myself 6 months to prepare (though also preparing for the UKCAT too) so should have enough time

    Thanks!
    Lou

    I gave myself ~3 months to prepare with no background in biology or chemistry and I did quite well it depends how long it takes you to learn stuff. All I used is the griffiths guide (defiantly recommended) and A-level textbooks. All of the courses are a waste of money I only know of one person who took one and they didn't even get interview thier score was so bad.

    Dear Lou84,

    Past papers, Griffiths, A-level revision guides and Organic Chemistry for Dummies saw me through. Also various free websites with snippets of help. Please PM me if you'd like further info, I do have some resources to get rid of. Good luck!
