    First year ESSENTIAL (taken from Spence Wells)

    Well for the 1st year, the absolute minimum books that I would reccommend are:


    Bender, D.A. Introduction to Nutrition and Metabolism, 3rd edition, Taylor and Francis, 2002.
    £22.99

    Dean, M.C & Pegigton, J. Core Anatomy for students. Vol 2 The thorax, abdomen, pelvis and perineum. W B Saunders 1995
    £15.99

    Young, B. and Heath, J.W. Wheater's Functional Histology, 4th edition, Churchill-Livingstone, 2000

    Pockock, G. & Richards, C.D. Human Physiology - the Basis of Medicine, Oford Universiy Press, 1999
    £35

    giving a grand total of £112.97

    Having a look at my bookshelf, I've spent £347.95, but I only need to get 1 more book for next year (a £50 neuroscience atlas)
