    you can get those books at the library. no point in buying them. First Aid huh? I am assuming you are first semester, so when you read that book now it'll be like a 1st grader reading Hamlet and trying to understand it.

    ha, no, more like a pre-med studying for chemistry with an mcat book. there's a pretty big gap b/ween 1st grade and high school, almost 12 years i'd say, only 2 for usmle, smart alec

    hahahaha, I think I offended you. Most people here would agree with my analogy. Good luck in school.

    If that is true then why have most people here have recommended getting First Aid as a semester1 book, and my sister who is in medical school also did, so I don't know what your talking about like you think you more than me.

    I just finished 1st semester and found First Aid very helpful.... it was nice to skim through the sections we had covered (biochem, 1st few anatomy pages of each organ system, embryo) and read the high yield concepts that were likely to show up on exams. Specifically, Dr. M's cell bio questions seemed to be based out of FA, covering most of the cell bio clinical examples found in the text.
    I dont see what's so complex about FA -- even the high yield clinical presenations at the start of every chapter are helpful to look over. It is also quite nice to slowly mark off pages of the text that you know, taking slow steps toward the final goal of knowing every page down cold.

    One book you should get is BRS Anatomy...it's useful throughout the course, most of all for the shelf that you take at the end of the semester. Plus, the questions after each chapter are great to do to test yourself for exams.
    First Aid isn't a must but it certainly can't hurt to have it
