Current vet students: what textbooks are worth buyingWatch
I'd like to do some reading before September so was wondering what textbooks do people buy generally on the course so I can get an idea of what might be worth investing in. Will likely be going to either Liverpool or RVC.
BSAVA textbook of veterinary nursing is another good one.
There's loads of different ones as it depends on which area you doing but ones I said above are two best ones to start with.
If possible try to get most updated book version available as they generally update books every 2 years at least and they will see you through your course.
Plus try the university library as may be able to borrow them ok
There might be PDF versions available to.
Look on likes of eBay and Amazon for them first to gauge prices from there as shop prices generally full price okay .

Good luck with the course as you'll enjoy it ok
You can pick up a copy on vet secondhand groups or ebay without too much expense - and this book is worth its weight in gold.
The university library will VERY likely have them (definitely if you go to Liverpool)
Covers the anatomy of the dog which is where you will start your anatomy but also that of the horse, cows, pigs etc. Very useful sections on comparative anatomy also which is a surprisingly big part of the course.
To me this is the only vet book needed as a pre-clinical student.
