Format: Paperback
This a great book, I found it informative for all areas of the application, but by far and away the best section was the UCAS form/personal statement bit. This is the confusing part of the process apart from interviews, and comes at a much earlier stage, which is why this book helped me out as I could plan out my strategy for using the summer before UCAS submission to develop my medical experience and in a way that looks great on paper, but also in a way which I enjoyed rather than just following a set formula. I followed the advice to take an interest of mine and try to make a productive and humanitarian use of it, by setting up a mini-concert tour for myself and another medic-to-be buddy around the neighbourhood nursing and residential homes in west London. It was a big hit, I really enjoyed it and also talking to the residents afterwards. We planned small elements like practising songs which may be commonly requested, and that worked out very well.

If I hadn't read the book, I think I'd have followed along the usual (and school!) advice of just doing general volunteering work and yet more hospital placements - I was inspired to take a variety of activities like going on GP home visits with some local doctors. All of these things came up in my interview and talking to the other students I met and on the forums, they all seemed quite impressed with the range of activities I had done. I must say that I've read other "How to get into medicine" books which seem to recommend this one size fits all formula that all students should do. This book is totally different, I get the feeling that it is a positive thing to take your own interest and personality and develop them in intelligent ways.

Overall this book is inspiring to read, as well as just providing data.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent guide for anyone who is interested in applying to medical school in the near future. The book is very comprehensive and covers the vast majority of subjects that every prospective medical student should know about.

This guide is clearly set out into separate paragraphs, so it is easy to pick up and read. I found the sections on the BMAT and university interviews very useful, picking up invaluable information which will help me throughout the course of my application.

Once again, I would certainly recommend this book to anyone interested in a medical degree.

This book is a truly excellent guide for explaining all the different aspects involved in medical school application. It is detailed, clear, easy to read and is relevant to everyone interested in medicine as it includes sections for international and graduate students. It also has a chapter on what it is like to be a doctor which i found particularly useful.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in medicine; it really is indispensable!

Format: Paperback
This book is simply the best for understanding the processes of medical school application. I had so much conflicting information and didn't understand how admissions tutors saw grades and entrance exams - this book is so clear at explaining what you need and no doubt that is why I will be going to Nottingham med school (as long as my grades are ok!). I felt like the biggest help was the personal statement section, which helped me really my make own distinct style while being organised at the same time. Brilliant.

Format: Paperback
This is a good little book and is well written. However as it attempts to deal with the various aspects of the entry process it does not provide more than a superficial approach to anything. Good introduction to the process though.
