5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 31 Aug 2009
I would strongly advise this book to any prospective medical students. It contains great information on finances, student life, admissions and all the usual things you expect in med school books. However what sets this book apart are its in depth profiles of each medical schools, covering the way they teach, their admissions process, what the placements are like, what the city is like and so on. Whilst the profiles are mostly positive they do also highlight the downsides to certain medical schools, which i found extremely useful.

When it comes to picking the four medical schools you want to apply to, beyond going to open days this book is your best bet for making the right choice.

Theres not a lot of point in me praising this game, as i think all the 5 star reviews below mine have done a good, and perfectly accurate job of it. Forgetting what im about to say, this is still a brilliant game and i would recommend it to anyone.However i would recommend with a warning; as soon as you've installed this game, get on the SI website and get the patch. Without it the matchday engine is absolutely ridiculous. Your players will part like the red sea everytime an opposition player gets the ball and no amount of tactics will get them to actually try and make a tackle. This makes the game unbelivably frustrating to play. There are some other small bugs but this is the only… Read more
