Any good books about the Biomedical Science and Genetics area that are good to read? I am looking to study these courses at University and would like to gain some more knowledge.

Are you looking for short books to pique interest, or actual textbooks you might use on these courses?

In terms of actual textbooks you might use on this course-if thats what you are looking for, probably don't bother. There will usually be enough in the library for you to rent for a few weeks/term when you need them.

For general medical sciences, you could check out "Sherwood's Physiology", or "Medical science" by Naish/Revest/Syndercombe court. They got me through a Medical Science degree in 1st/2nd year pretty well. I would check them in your local library if you can, can be quite pricey to buy if you arent guaranteed a place on one of those degrees yet. If you are more into cellular level stuff, "Alberts Molecular Biology of the Cell" is a great book. Worth noting that all of these books are massive, several hundred pages.

Thank you for your reply! Yes I was just looking for general reading material rather than textbooks. Thank you for your suggestions I will have to check the library for them! Do you enjoy your course?

Yeah i did enjoy both my degrees in the end.

Sorry i can only provide those textbooks as suggestions. I can't think of any good books as general reading, really.
