Dear Readers,

My question relates to the gamsat preparatory text 'The Gold Standard Gamsat'. I wish to purchase this book however I am not confident if it is just a rip off from its associated MCAT textbook.

Having searched the internet I find no information giving evidence to the content of the textbook nor are any sample pages offered. This is most alarming. Furthermore all the questions related to this text, on this forum, appear to be frequently answered by 'md-4-me'. Given this user's previous activity it is reasonable to assume that he/she is a vendor of said text. Hence any opinion brought foward by 'md-4-me' is most likely heavily biased.

Thus if anyone has actually used or read this book I would incredibly grateful if you could share your thoughts. To emphasize please reply only if you have first handedly witnessed Gamsat the Gold Standard. There is too much speculation pertaining to this book on the internet and I am actively seeking the truth.

I apologise if my question suggests otherwise of what is potentially a legitimate textbook. However it does cost $160; a fairly large investment for a student, and so my doubts are justified.

Thanks,

Desmond

P.S: 'md-4-me' if you are reading this post may I ask that you direct me to sample pages of 'gamsat the gold standard' to clear the doubts I have. Thank you

You are correct, I've always been comfortable underlining that I am not an objective observer.

The best way to see the book for yourself is if you attend one of the following uni's then you can just call the bookstore to be sure that it is in stock then you can leaf through it to see if the 'rumours' are true or false: Australia - USYD, MU, UWA, UNSW, UQ, UTS, ANU, AU, Flinders, UNISA; Ireland - UCC, UCD; UK uni's: Liverpool U, Southampton U, Leeds U; Waterstone's in London

There are some reviews here: www.gamsat-prep.com/index.php?main_page=display_all_testimonials

I'll also ask for some sample pages to go online but I suppose that it could take a week or so.
