    Legitimate 1st Semester books

    Advertisements



    OK, I am pretty tired of using the search on this forum trying to locate a topic/post listing, in simplicity, the actual books and study aids used for the first semester by students. Can someone please list which books are actually utilized for studying? I do not need to be referred to the required book list, I want to know what is actually used for studying purposes. I do not feel like wasting a lot of money on books i will never use.

    If there is a list already posted I can't find it.

    Any help appreciated.

    It depends on whether you rely on books a lot when you study. The packets and lectures are all you usually need for the minis in most of the classes. My "essentials" were:
    - Baby Netter's to use in lab
    - Grant's Dissector
    - Moore & Dalley's Anatomy
    - Meisenberg's Biochem
    - BRS physio
    - BRS gross anatomy (lots of people will disagree with me on this, but I like the questions at the ends of the chapters and it's easier to carry around than M & D)

    I bought the books for Histo and Physio, but use them only for reference and not for regular studying. A lot of people I know used the Histo text for Dr. Y's lectures just because sometimes her notes aren't extensive enough.

    I would add BRS biochem

    you dont need anything for histology

    I liked to have a physio textbook, but its not necessary

    BRS anatomy is a must in my opinion

    An atlas for anatomy!
    For neuro (which is mostly in 2nd) I recommend the atlas by Haines and Neuroanatomy through Clinical Cases. Most people don't know about that 2nd book for neuro but it's gold!

    Anyone care to comment on the following books??

    These REQ books seem useful but I'm thinking of waiting until I get to the island to check them out and buy them from students -- does anyone have any thoughts on these and are they easy to get from outgoing students?

    LANGE Physiology Books
    R & P (for histology)
    R & T (Physiology)

    Also, do students actually use the books that contain "required" reading for DPS?

    Thanks for any input!

    are we supposed to pre-order the books we wantbefore we get to the island? Also, what are we meant to do about getting the white coat/scrubs/anatomy tools?
