Sorry if a thread similar to this has been started before..

i may seem rather keen but i was wondering if people from different universities can put up a list of books they used in the first year. I know we will get this when (and if ) we start the course but i was told that if i could find out and try to get hold of some books we will definitely need, i may be able to get them cheaper during the summer..

thanks in advance.. x

The three I would 100% get are:

* Pharmacology - Rang, Dale, Ritter, Moore (i see Gregorian put Flower.. might be worth missing Moore or Flower out of a search). Also, don't buy the condensed version.
* Pharmaceutics, The Science of Dosage form Design - Aulton.
* Pathology and Therapeutics for Pharmacists - Russell J Greene

Though some other good ones are:
* Review of medical physiology - William F Ganong
* Essentials of Pharmaceutical Chemistry - Donald Cairns

If you do Compounding/ Extemp prep in first year then i suggest getting:
* FASTtrack: Pharmaceutical Compounding and Dispensing - Chris Langley and Dawn Belcher

I wouldn't buy any in your first year. Borrow from the library and see what you like and how often you use it.

If you're absolutely insistent on buying one though I'd go for Pharmacology by Rang, Ritter and Dale cause you'll probably use it loads later on in the course.

:yep:

The only one you need is Physicochemical Principles of Pharmacy by Florence & Attwood for the physics practicals. You can borrow it from the library though.

For everything else, just pay attention and take notes in lectures. There's also wikipedia as well.

There aren't many books that you need for pharmacy it seems, so what do you use? Notes and handouts?

Here in Manchester, most lecturers expect you to print off the lecture slides beforehand and annotate them during lectures. There's a couple who don't give you any and expect you to copy off the screen. There's also directed and recommended reading, although I don't think I did any in the first year.

Lecturer's give you handouts per lecture. Annotate as you wish. If you understand everything, then no need to do any extra work. If you don't understand, then refer to textbook

The only one I used regularly was Human Anatomy and Physiology by Tortora and Derrickson. Absolute Bible for 1st and possibly into 2nd year IMO
