    My 3 bookcases are overflowing I need to sell some book and/or return some to the library at some point. I've had a couple out since my first term. :flute:

    I swear I must have a good £2000 worth of textbooks around
    Right, I'm bored. I've taken some pics of about 2/3 of my medical books.

    I should probably be reading them instead of taking photos of them...:/

    There are a few books that don't really belong there. Rep to anyone who spots the most:P

    wow... which year are you in?

    I mean.. is that all the books you've accumulated each year?? do all medics need that many... or have you just gone crazy ?

    PS : im not sure i completely understand the concept of an "anatomy colouring book"

    Tom: that's 2. The others are probably not too obvious at that resolution

    FJ: They are not stolen TYVM:p:. We get termly loans and unlimited online renewals at King's (as long as no one requests it...which is rare.) The ones from the library are mostly 4th(+) year books (apart from an anatomy, pharmacology and physiology book which I refer to a lot)

    Gluups: I am probably slightly mad- I like to keep books I've found useful in the past. I'm a 4th year.

    The colouring book is pretty handy actually. It's just another way for more visual/kinesthetic learners to learn anatomy, instead of just memorising various origins and attachments of muscles, and medial/lateral/superficial/deep/anterior/posterior/inferior/superior etc. relationships of things.

    My medic friends all have the anatomy colouring book...
    Do they say it's any good? I don't know if it's a standard text, but everyone seems to have it.

    It's not a standard text in the literal sense, but it's recommended if you're into that sort of thing. You only really need one clinical anatomy book, and maybe an atlas, of which there are LOTS to choose from. People prefer different styles and often end up using more than one of each type book. A combination of the dissecting manual we're all issued with and an atlas will more than suffice for exams.

    I don't know, I think there's more original thought than in the other modules - you can try and think up your own examples by applying the theory you learn to different organisms, which I found great fun. What don't you like about the diversity lectures by the way? I found them a bit routine, but it was mostly just classification really. Anyway, my friend's doing animal biology (probably the closest module to E&B), plant and microbial sciences (I think) and possibly pathology.

    Which professor?
    Well, it was a bit "there was this theory, but there's also this, and this might be related, but this isn't, this could be true, but maybe it isn't" etc - it was all a bit too all over the place and confusing! Apparently our lecturer was on a sabbatical the past two years, so your year had a different lecturer who went through the routine classification stuff more.

    Hrm, that example sheet didn't go well AT ALL.
    I'm going to mail my supervisor that he probably won't get it till 24h after the deadline, otherwise it's just going to be 30% of it, and I can't be bothered to hand that in. I'm trying to do some more, but my concentration is rapidly decreasing.
