    Booklist query

    Advertisements



    Hi all,

    I was just wondering....... What do you guys and gals think about the booklist. Do you think it needs to be updated or you see any books that stink. I see a couple of great books myself. Especially the Anatomy book called Clinically Oriented Anatomy by Moore. EXCELLENT book to learn from.

    Books, Books, n' more Books!!!!!!!!

    Hey... I'll tell ya what books I think are the best because I went through them myself for each subject :

    (if I didn't list a subject, then I never used a book for it, so it's up to you)
    This is strictly for basic science.

    Copy n' paste these links to check em' out.


    Anatomy
    ===================
    - Definitely the Moore for the text... very detailed though, but it will have everything that you will ever need.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    For an atlas pick up the Netter: Simply the best one no doubt. I always loved that inlay picture of him... what a badbutt.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...e&s=books&st=*

    BRS anatomy was a good one too:

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    ----------------------------------

    Histology
    ====================

    Di Fiore's Atlas is very nice... great pics, easy to see.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    Another one is Wheater's histo:

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    A solid histo textbook that I've used is :
    Ross Histology
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    ---------------------

    Embryo
    ==============

    Langman's - nothing beats this book.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books
    ------------------------------------

    Physiology
    =====================
    Seems there's many books around...

    Guyton is a great physio book.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    For EKG's :

    Lippincott's The Only EKG book you'll ever need: is a great consise book.. can go through in a few days.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    Dale Dubin's EKG book is a good one as well:

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    Principles of Physio: is another good book.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    BRS Phsyio is defnitely a good pickup as well.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    They list the Ganong & West... I've been throught eh Ganong... but I thought it was dry... Can't comment on the West... although I think I used it for studying some stuff on the resp. system back in the day.

    -----------------------------------------

    Neuro
    =============
    A plethora of books out there, and I never found one that was good. Our neuro was way over detailed... and we had to use this book: It's not too bad, but definitely takes a while to read. More of a reference text.


    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books


    I've looked at the snell before... it's a decent book... but never really used it.

    Atlaswise I can't remember off hand... but I can check again. The author was Carpenter something...

    If you can find it... BRS Neuroanatomy 2nd edition was what I mainly used as well.



    biochem
    ===============

    Lippincott's is a real good book. Our biochem class had it's own text... so this book was not enough to pass our class... but it's enough for the boards.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    The stryer and devlin are super detailed reference books... they are huge...but if you like biochemistry... maybe pick up the devlin. I doubt you'll really use it.

    The BRS Biochem is an ok companion to have...
    ----------------------------------------

    Genetics
    ============
    We used the Hartl text... can't comment on any of the other books listed on the the school site.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    --------------------------------------------------

    Patho
    =================
    You need to learn your patho well.

    Histopatho:
    Wheater's
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books


    Text:

    You need a good patho text book... and this is the one:

    *****'s basic patho

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    Also another one to have is:

    Goljan's Patho

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...356012-8495231

    BRS Patho:

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    Mini *****: (this is a pocket guide to the Big *****/Robbins textbook and not to the one listed above) Good to have when walking around...


    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    Pharm
    =========
    Pick em' both up.

    Lippincott pharm:

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    Katzung:

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books
    -------------------------------

    Micro&Immuno
    =================
    The lange review book... great text... good immuno

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...356012-8495231

    Mirco ridiculously simple:

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    ------------------------------------------


    Internal Medicine:
    ***** & Clark's - great text... couldn't find a U.S. edition... but good pickup

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...356012-8495231

    Harrison's - expensive, but you need it eventually... good ref.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...356012-8495231

    Merk Manual - good reference
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books

    Bates PD/History-

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...356012-8495231


    --------------------

    That's basically what I can think of off the top of my head...

    Definitely pick up the First Aid for Step 1 & the High Yield Series for each text...this will prep you up early for step 1.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/se...356012-8495231



    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...356012-8495231

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    The other textbooks i.e. for behav & preventive med.. I really never used one... same with ethics. Man... I hope those links work... haha. Alright then... this should give ya an idea of what to get. I'm not sure yet how the basic sciences are taught on the campus... but these books provide a good understanding to help out for the boards and future.

    Edit*** sorry you're gonna have to copy n' paste the links in a new browser window...

    Wow

    Wow!! That was extensive.... Have you been to the school's site, they have a booklist for each semester during basic sciences. Just Click books online then the appropriate semester accordingly. Any opinion would be great.

    Yeah...

    Yeah... that is what I was doing. I checked their booklist and gave my personal opinion of what's best... 'cuz I've seen and used all these books in my four years of med school in Europe. I'm gonna be a transfer student... The books I listed above will definitely be a great help for you... but if y'all have any questions about anything... you can PM or IM me... 8) Peace.

    Well we used the Lennart Heimer's Human Brain and Spinal cord textbook. That was the link I mentioned above. The class was taught using many different sources. The Snell & BRS are good picks too.

    Anyways... you should use SJ's booklist for that is what they [the professors] teach from. Pick up a few of the suggestions I gave for each subject. Trust me... they will help you out.

    If y'all have any more questions... I'll get back to ya soon. However, I do check my email. Gonna be in Slovakia for a week I'm excited!
