Book Description

Feb. 7 2011
A medical school interview is an intense experience and now it is reproduced and captured on video to be used as a learning tool. This DVD was filmed live in HD on campus in front of a group of premedical students most of whom were invited for medical school interviews. A volunteer is interviewed in front of the class and the entire interview is conducted as if it were the real thing. Ambiguous questions, ethical questions, pauses, interruptions, and other elements are created by an experienced author and interviewer. After the interview, an analysis of each question and the mindset behind it is discussed in an open forum format. If you are not sure that you have the interviewing skills to be accepted to medical school, then this is a must-see video.

About the Author

Dr. Brett Ferdinand was awarded numerous scholarships en route to graduating with honors in a B.Sc. program. Years ago, confident that he would one day be a doctor, he fulfilled his passion for teaching by creating The Gold Standard Courses, which have become a perennial lecture series in the US and Canada, and now also Australia and Ireland. After being accepted to all the medical schools to which he applied, Dr. Brett Ferdinand completed The Gold Standard MCAT textbook. The book received distribution throughout North America, instantly became one of the best selling study guides and, more recently, was honored as an Award Winning 2010 Best Books Finalist by USA Book News (category: Education/Reference), and one of 3 finalists for a 2010 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award in NYC (category: Best Redesign). Today, Dr. Brett Ferdinand continues to be known as a dynamic lecturer on the admissions process and the basic sciences. He recently poured his energy into creating the first GAMSAT textbook, ever - The Gold Standard GAMSAT. This hardcover book in colour of over 700 pages is not just a study guide, it teaches all 3 sections of the GAMSAT with hundreds of sample practice questions including a full-length pull out practice test. Dr. Ferdinand is well known for making difficult concepts easy to understand. Over the years, he has lectured to thousands of pre-medical students and reached thousands more through his books, online interactive programs and his medical school interview videos on YouTube.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not useful for MMI interviews Jan. 18 2012
Format:Misc. Supplies
I bought this DVD because it was suppose to have multiple mini interview cases but it had none! The only thing that the book has regarding the MMI is a 10 minute slide show, which describes the origin of the MMI format and the logistics. Given that anyone who receives a MMI interview is usually given detailed information about the logistics, I don't see any value for this dvd.

Anything that gives us a heads up on what these interviews is a plus. I've been pleased with all the videos in this series. The customer service is excellent. I accidentally received a duplicate in the order and it was corrected promptly. These guys are great, I'm going to owe Dr. Ferdinand a beer by the time this is done!

This was a great DVD; the advice given within was extremely useful which certainly justified the price. The DVD case was slightly damaged but I still gave this product 5 stars because I didn't buy this to look at a pretty case (note: the damage likely occurred during international shipment). A great tool for those interviewing for med school. 5/5

I bought it for my son's medical school interview. We were disappointed that nothing really taught us. Not helpfull at all. Though my son was admitted in medical school, I still could not give high score for this DVD.
3.0 out of 5 stars Worth about $19 Aug. 21 2011

This DVD did provide me with some insight into the process but only went over a handful of questions. Like most in this situation, I have felt desperate to increase my odds of success, and gladly paid the $30. If you can stand the urge that you may miss some mystical secret, you may want to watch Youtube interview videos and read books about interviewing instead...I don't know if I could take my own advice though. Dr. Ferdinand knows what he is talking about but the information is too limited and it is too short for the money.
