Hi, so. As some of you may know (or can tell from my signature), I'm applying for this UCAS cycle for medicine (2013 entry). Anyway, my mum's friend knows that I'm applying for medicine, and before her career change, she undertook a degree in podiatry (I don't know how recent this was, but all the books are up to date). She still has some books, and she gave them to me as she no longer has any use for them, but she says if they're no good then to give them back (they obviously set her back quite a bit, so she doesn't want them to go to waste). As I'm not starting medicine any time soon, I have no idea if they'll be helpful for when I actually start (and by the way, these are for when I actually start, I'm not just looking for some reading beforehand!). So I hoped maybe some of you who are studying/have studied medicine could tell me if these are going to be helpful for me, because if not, there's no point me having them I have no idea how to tell if they're what I'll need/the same level needed for a student.
TL;DR: Will the following books be useful for me as a med student, as I got given them for free (but have to return them if they're not!):
Neale's Disorders of the Foot (Probably more for podiatry, but she gave me it anyway!)
Principles of Anatomy and Physiology (the newer edition)
Mosby's Dictionary for Medicine, Nursing and Health Professions
