Since I've been so not-proactive about getting anything prepared for uni, I thought I'd get some of the books from the booklist online, but I don't know which ones to get!!!
I know there are the 4 essential ones: Vander's Physiology, the blue Biochemistry one, Essential Clinical Anatomy and Health and Illness in the community. I have the Biochem one and the Anatomy ones which I bought off Keeno cos he lives near me but I don't know what other books to get!!!
These are the ones it says on t'booklist to get (apart from those ones above)...
Systems 1: Review of Medical Physiology Ganong, also for sys. 2 and basic med sci so i guess this may be useful
Histology Ross, Pawling
Systems 2: Basic and Clinical Anatomy Peakman
Histology: A Text and Atlas with Correlated Cell and Molecular Biology with CDROM Ross, Pawling- I think this might be similar to the Histology one above
Essential Obstetrics and Gynaecology Symonds
General and Systematic Pathology: With Student Consult Online Access Underwood
Rang and Dale's Pharmacology with Other
Basic Sci. for Medicine: Emery's Elements of Medical Genetics with Other
Turnpenny, Peter D. Ellard
Medical Pharmacology at a Glance Michael J. Neal
Which should def. be bought and/or I might use later on and which ones would I be wiser to borrow? Does anyone have any I could buy cheaply ???
haha I'm making up for lost time in keeness....

Only the ones labelled as 'essential' are actually what we need. The other are supplementary, if u require additional info on given topic.
Also, Systems 2 is a part of second year programme... or maybe it's just my imagination anyway, no gynaecology on year 1, that's for sure.after an extreme NMM makeover u might find me using another profile (Kensei)..

Ah, but maybe the ob/gyn book is there just to support the basic physiology&anatomy texts when we'll proceed to female reproductive system at the end of yr 1? They do that sometimes, u don't really need a given book as a whole, they just want u to read a chapter or two if ur really curious. Who knows...after an extreme NMM makeover u might find me using another profile (Kensei)..

Does anyone have the link for the booklist? i used the one from the premed handbook and it just came up with a bookshop site saying "page not available"
Tis getting very exciting now. I am driving my friends crazy with uni talk when they probably want to enjoy what is left of summer. Can't wait, not long now.2nd Year Aberdeen Medic

Robert you know me too well. I was just about to say to everyone to take a chill pill.
However, as i am in a tense mood right now, i will help you out some more:
Academic, Educational and Business Books - Blackwell Bookshop Online
Copy and paste that bad boy link above ^^ and you wont go wrong. Also choose Systems 1 and Basic Science for Medicine and there is nothing you can do wrong.
See, i can be a nice person when i want to be.Aberdeen 2008
