    My friend's doing medicine at UCL, she's in her second year. The degree costs £1,270 per year. Her most expensive textbook was about £200 I think, but she was extremely shocked at that!

    Other than tat she had to buy a stethoscope which was £155.

    Why don't you just ask him to calculate the figure for you?!

    my 3 pre-clinical yrs cost me about 5,000 a yr, that's without any additional luxuries like drinking, going out lots and equipment. including that prob like 5500 a yr. for the 3 clinical yrs, i expect it to cost around 7500 a yr, at least. so the total i will have spent in all will be around 35k

    Yeah my steth was about 50 or 60. Does the job! I will no doubt be treating myself to a fancy one when i qualify, but no need for a good one as a student! And £200 for a textbook? My most so far has been about £40 i think - thought I have spent about £300 in total in a year and a bit.

    Why does Grays have this big rep if it's really bad?

    It's not bad, it's just that it has an insane amount of detail, far more than anyone needs.

    There probably isn't a better anatomy textbook in the world in terms of detail, but its just ridiculously hard to read! And there is way more detail than you will ever need to know, so not much point frying your brain attempting to learn it! Moore and Agur all the way!

    I dont really want to think about the total cost really. I'm spending far too much. Havnt got a stethie yet but will defiantly be buying the old litmann classic for about £46. No need for anything else.

    Do the BMA not have some offer on Littmans when you first start med school? Or am I thinking of something else ...
