All of this is very well covered. However, the most useful section by far is the current affairs chapter that discusses the issues of the NHS, SARs, BSE, the implications of genetic engineering, third world health, MMR and HIV/AIDS. The appendix contains a table of medical school admission policies and stats including mock interview questions.
Overall, this book is excellent. I would advise anyone applying or thinking of applying to study Medicine to buy this book. In my experience, the succeding at interview and current affairs sections cover many of the question that you are likely to encounter at interview.
On the up side, it does state the obvious about not answering the "why do you want to be a Doctor?" question with a "because I want to help people" response It also provides a lot of useful advice on University's procedure on second-time round applicants, post-grad applicants etc. It also gives some indication on how an application to Oxbridge is going to differ to other Universities.
All in all, it may be useful to some applicants, but in all honesty I wouldn't waste my student loan...
