Hi guys...


I have a couple questions related to biomedical science degree. Every year you are given 4-6 modules, and each of that module has essential and recommended books. And all together you usually have to study 3 years. Can someone please give me the list of their essential and recommended books for each module and together of 3 years. (If possible top 10 universities in uk, like UCL or Imperial.)

Thanks.

martini a&p
alberts molecular biology of the cell
catch up chemistry if you haven't done chemistry a level
mcmurray and catellion fundamentals of general, inorganic and biological chemistry
Fundamentals of General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry (7th/6th) Edition,
Immunology 8th edition (Male), Immunology 5th edition (Goldsby), Janeways Immunobiology 8th edition (Murphy)

also get igenetics for the genetics module and you will also need human physiology books

also some courses are not ibms accredited so the course structure will differ from ibms accredited courses.

I did Biomed first year, doing neuroscience now. This is what I remember from the recommended:

Pocock & Richards Human Physiology
Essentials of Genetics (Klung)
Pharmacology (Rang and Dale)
Cell Biology - a short course
Chemistry cubed - was recommended for the compulsory chemistry module, but it's OTT in my opinion.
There was no recommended book for anatomy, but the course was an anatomy - development hybrid. I found that 'principles of anatomy and physiology' covered both areas well.

yeah, KIng's college is absolutely legit, ''the institute of biomedical science'' is not that important to me, what important is content of the course.
