    UPDATED FIRST SEMESTER BOOK LIST!!! A BOOK HAS BEEN ADDED!!!

    this is my recommended first semester book list (from what i think will help out the most)

    Random
    1 - First Aid for the USMLE Step1
    2 - The Princeton Review's Medical School Companion
    3 - Stedmans Medical Dictionary

    Anatomy
    1 - Netters Atlas of Anatomy
    2 - Netters Anatomy Flashcards (great tool to learn rapidly and for quick review)
    3 - Moore Clinical Anatomy (snell is also excellent but the profs like Moore here)
    4 - BRS Anatomy (a must...High Yield = total garbage)
    5 - Color Atlas of Anatomy by Rohen (GET THIS BOOK!!!)

    Embryology
    1 - Moore Embryology
    2 - BRS Embryology

    Histology
    1 - Ross Histology
    2 - BRS Histology (not really for class but more for studying for boards)

    Biostats
    1 - appleton and lange's epidemiology and biostatiscs for the USMLE
    2 - BRS Biostatistics and Epidemiology

    i would highly recommend buying the books at a medical school or medical textbook store in the US or wherever u are and just bringing them along in a suitcase. the extra weight shouldnt cost you more then maybe 50-60 bucks (check with your flight carrier) but shipping them here through the bookstore will run you at least 100 or more. just make sure to tell customs the books are your personal effects and not for resale so they dont charge you the 20%. and look through them once so you can tell customs they have been used and are not new.

    as for a computer i would highly recommend anything with 512RAM, a p4 or centrino/celeron (amd/m chip wouldnt be bad either). dont get a Mac, because i believe there are difficulties with running them on our network and the last thing that you want to do is waste time doing random computer crap. make sure to get microsoft office on there (a total must because every prof uses powerpoint slides that are available to you) and i would suggest about 40 gig hard drive or higher and GET A DVD DRIVE! the library has awesome anatomy DVDs that you can watch on your laptop, and they help big time. you can get by with a 256RAM but i have 512 and its smoother. i like toshibas alot, but alot of my fellow students have dells and vaios and havent had any issues. make sure that you get windows XP, its really stable and will save you alot of headache in the long run (dont worry about XP home, pro or media center editions). there are some great wireless cards out there, but the one that i really recommend is the Microsoft wireless G card that you can get off of Amazon.com. not only is it dirt cheap, but its good quality (you can get either the card or USB access). make sure that it is G and not B though, i had a B and had all sorts of issues with connectivity on campus and within the residence hall.

    well that should about do it right there, i hope that helps all you incoming 1st semesters out alot, if you have any other questions please feel free to give me a PM.

    good luck!!!

    list obsolete

    yeah this list is pretty obsolete now with the new profs coming in...what i would recommend would be the following

    Anat
    1 - BRS Anatomy by Chung (this is a must)
    2 - Netters Anatomy Atlas / Anatomy Flash cards (great tool for lab)

    Histo/Embryo
    personally, i think that his notes are more then enough for the class. PRof Rogers does a great job with his powerpoints...but as far as books go, you will have to contact the school for his list.

    Others
    First Aid for the USMLE Step1 - should be the book u use alot in conjunction with classes
    Kaplan series - excellent books for your whole medical school education.
