Ace the GAMSAT!
All you need is 3 things to ace this exam: Time, a solid GAMSAT Review, and realistic GAMSAT Exams.
How much time do you need? Pretty easy. First get your review and exams together and start working. Reassess after one week. Because there is only a limited amount of review books and exams (good ones at least), you'll know after one week how much more time you'll need to complete your review. On average: 3 to 6 months.
The first GAMSAT textbook ever was made available online and in participating bookstores in the summer of 2010. It covers all sections of the exam including a workbook/practice approach to Sections I and II and a complete Section III review in colour (all topics in detail). A full length practice (simulated) pull-out test (paper) is also included.
The Gold Standard GAMSAT contains a full length practice paper with worked solutions. More full length practice tests are available at GAMSAT-prep.com. Of course, an essential part of your preparation includes the practice papers which come from ACER, the Australian Council for Education Research. You can order here.
