    For those of u at uni, doing Medicine or Dentistry.
    I'm gonna be doing lecture-based Dentistry at Sheffield and I was wondering if I should take my Chem, Bio and Phys complete A-level notes? I've also got Maths As, but I dunno if that is necessary.

    I took my Biology and Chem files (didn't do Physics) in the first term, and didn't open them. I found my OCR cramming books (the ones that exactly fit the syllabus) vaguely useful just to remind me of things, but even they weren't used that often.

    I wouldn't bother either.

    One of the first things you're told at Uni is to forget what you covered at A-Level, as it was too simplistic and not necessarily true (hmm - I remember getting that at A-level re: GCSEs too!!). Also things change quickly - I was looking over my first degree notes over tha weekend, and in 4 years they've become almost obsolete.

    If you like the security of having A-Level material withyou, I would have though a Letts guide or two would surfice. However, the number of far better books you wil have access to wil make this a bit of a wasted effort.

    Your chem and physics files won't be useful at all. I used my biology files twice thoughout the whole of last year, and it was only for information that could easily have been found in text books if I'd looked. I wouldn't bother taking any of them.
