    I've firmed St Georges today and will be starting the course in September.

    Anyone have any advice on:

    Books to buy in advance
    Placement hospitals: How they are allocated?
    Wednesday study day - is this a full day?

    ...and anything else you think will be useful to know.

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    Wednesday you will generally get the whole day off. but there are a few days when you are scheduled to be in on Wed morning, pretty sure some exams have been on them. A few lectures definitely have.

    Placement hospitals are allocated randomly unless there are extenuating circumstances. If people drop out and a spot opens, it may be possible to move.

    As for books to buy in advance, it is probably best to wait until you are in, that way you can check them in the library. If you really want to though:
    - Clark's positioning in radiography has a little pocket handbook that most people end up getting, it covers the most common projections. There is also a physics book they do. The full Clark's book is way too expensive and heavy.
    - Accident and emergency radiology: a survival guide is my favourite book for the basics of image interpretation in an A&E setting, and has handy little advice like what fish bones are radiopaque, and what aren't.
    - Chris Gunn's Bones and Joints is good for anatomy, though I didn't like it that much.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
