    Needing some advice

    Advertisements



    I have a few months free before starting AUC, do you recommend that I start reading now? If yes, what books should I buy?

    Dilbert should be a good read but I heard Garfield is just as funny.

    Just relax, take some time to enjoy life before you embark on this journey. It's a long long long journey. You'll be studying alot when you get here anyways. No need to stress out more.

    Good luck

    Buy a Netters and a Lippincott Biochem. Read them (look at them) at your own risk.

    If you fail at AUC, SGU, or Ross why not transfer to SMU, if you fail at SMU, why not try another SMU.

    If you want, knock yourself out. Netters and Lippincott's are the way to go.

    But wouldn't you be knocked out for longer using the Robbin's Path text? I think it's quite a bit heavier and that hard cover really makes a solid THUMP!
