    Specifically are all lectures available on video, post lecture? I know some use Echo360 and store the whole year to aid revision.

    Secondly, I'm on a tight budget and I've heard it said at some Vet universities that you can get through the course using library extensively with maybe buying 1 -2 books. What do you think is a realistic budget?

    Finally, what other multi-media resources do you find you use a lot with your Uni?

    I'm especially interested in Liverpool, Nottingham, RVC & Surrey, but I'm sure all feedback would be useful.

    Thanks.

    Liverpool most lecturers record the lectures - they've got much better this year and pretty much every lecture is recorded so you can watch them back and they are uploaded on to vital (blackboard).

    Books are available from the library, I've brought a few but only the ones I really needed which people had already taken out of the library. There isn't really any need to buy any as worst comes to worst there are copies which aren't allowed to leave the library. Most of the stuff you need to know is included in the lecture notes, I only use books if I really don't understand something or if I'm interested in a particular topic.

    I've used YouTube a lot funnily enough, to understand some concepts, and google is handy at times haha! Otherwise I don't use a lot else, it depends on how you learn. There's a brilliant online anatomy thing by Colombia university which I used in first and second year for revision

    That's great to know and very reassuring.

    My previous university had facilities to record every lecture and in theory they should have done but in reality they were rarely recorded. A friend studying in the UK has said similar.
    Here we are sometimes given powerpoint presentations but lectures are never recorded. All content is available in the subject specific books written by the lecturer so it's not really needed.

    Textbooks are all available in the library and we have a print shop that copies books very inexpensively, usually less than €10; PDF versions are available of most online too. I've bought three 'real' books so far - Radiology, Surgery and Parasitology.

    I also use YouTube a lot as I think I'm quite a visual learner, particularly for Physiology stuff. Wendy Riggs is a lecturer in the US and amazing at explaining Histology, I still refer back to some of her videos and remember concepts she's explained word for word.

    Our class recorded our Anatomy practicals every week and put them on YouTube to help with revision for the final which was really useful.
