Can anyone recommend some books that may be advantageous before starting the course?

Thanks, Gaz.

Thanks, Gaz.
The first year of Biomedical Science tends to be quite basic. It's an extension of A level at most universities and sets a basic standard across the variety of students who enrol on the course. You're best just waiting for your uni to issue the list of recommended textbooks to you and go from there. However, a brilliant book which I purchased in my first year is "Pearson Stanfield Principles of Human Physiology Fourth Edition" which was extremely helpful when learning a bit more advanced cardio/respiratory/GI physiology. One bit of advice would be to take out books IMMEDIATELY after you get the lists. The textbooks tend to fly off the shelves. The edition never matters, the info is always the same but some minor tweaks. Hope that gave you some insight lol!

I agree with the other poster. Take out library books as soon as you have access to the library and get the book lists. They usually post them online on your university's portal so check, if not wait until you get them in lectures. I don't think you need to bother reading anything before uni starts, enjoy your summer .

Hi Gaz,

I've just written a blog post about what books I would recommend following my experience with first and second year of doing a Biomedical Science degree. Hope it helps?

Good Luck!
