Over the past few years there has been a shift towards more detailed assessment of students applying to university, particularly those wishing to read medicine or dentistry. The UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) is used by the majority of UK medical and dentistry schools to identify the brightest candidates, most suitable for training at their institutions. The UKCAT aims to test verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning and decision analysis rather than scientific knowledge so, unlike your other exams, you can't revise for it. How to Master the UKCAT, from testing experts Mike Bryon, Chris Tyreman and Jim Clayden, allows you to familiarise yourself with the style of tests you will face, providing over 700 highly relevant practice questions for the UKCAT sub tests. Timed mini-test sections give you a chance to practice under realistic test conditions. How to Master the UKCAT will help you to work hard to perfect your exam technique and learn how to achieve the necessary balance between speed and accuracy. It will teach candidates about each of the five styles of questions involved and what they demand, showing how to develop a winning approach and get the desired results.
