'Increasingly, doctors are seeing the value of learning the language of management. A number of doctors have learnt the language and skills by gaining a formal qualification such as an MBA. Many more have followed an experiential route. This book is for doctors who see the value that an education in management can bring, whether formal or informal.

Over the past few years there has been a shift towards a more detailed assessment of students applying to university, particularly those wishing to read medicine or dentistry.

The UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) is the latest test to be developed - it is used by the majority of UK medical and dentistry schools.The UKCAT aims to test verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning and decision analysis rather than scientific knowledge, so you can't revise for it. You can however familiarise yourself with the type of questions that will be presented in the UKCAT and learn how to answer them. How to Pass the UKCAT, by testing expert Mike Bryon, contains 600 bang up-to-date, highly relevant practice questions for the UKCAT subtests. It also offers mini tests so you can practice under realistic test conditions against the clock.How to Pass the UKCAT will help you to work hard on your exam technique and learn how to achieve the necessary balance between speed and accuracy. It will teach you about each of the five styles of questions involved and what they demand of you, showing you how to develop a winning approach and get the results you want.
