    It looks really good. The drawings are detailed but clear, and labelled well. The book is divided into chapters by subject matter, and only one side of each page is printed on so you don't have trouble with pens 'bleeding' or anything. There's usually a couple of illustrations on each page, the same thing but at different rotations, during movement, or different layers of anatomy. It looks like it'll be a fun way to revise anatomy Plus you can get it for £14 on amazon at the moment :p:
    I'm really tempted to get it, I have to admit.

    I've heard from a lot of people that it's a good book. Personally, I learn from diagrams and things like that - so if that's your learning style then I say go for it

    EDIT - I forgot to put that as well as the diagrams, there is a paragraph or two of text explaining the anatomy shown on that page.

    I know it is highly recommended for the Cambridge course, so I would say it would be good for the Oxford course as well as a means of revision

    If you've watched Channel 4 recently, you'll have seen the advert for Derren Brown's new show (playing reversed). It's been massively hyped up and today he announced the line-up of what his 'events' are going to be. On Wednesday he'll start by predicting the lottery numbers!



    I saw Derren Brown live once in theatre. The man is simply phenomenal, and also the scariest man in Britain. :p:

    It's taken me literally all summer to sort out bank stuff. Closing child savings accounts, opening different accounts, student finance...argh!

    My means-assessed student finance STILL isn't sorted. It's a good job I have some savings or I'd be in the **** right now, I'd have literally no money left. I opened my student account this morning and I still have some child savings accounts floating about that I'll have to sort out at some point.

    If he manages to predict the numbers before they've been drawn I'll be VERY surprised. The man is a genius of psychology and reading body language, he doesn't have the power of precognition. (Read "the physics of the impossible if you're interested in that stuff. Its very geeky, but he goes into the actual physics of whether its possible. Its a good read.)

    :mad: yet there are people getting it who don't really need it. Especially seeing as a lot of people live at home.

    We should revolt!

    I've been doing my application for months now, turns out they forgot to send my dad a form to fill in as evidence despite the fact we asked them three times and they said they didn't need it. :shoot:

    Well that's inconvenient :p:

    I have non-means assessed for now, which means I'm not going to be living in a cardboard box (yet) but it's still annoying. :mad:

    HE'S BACK!!! How did i miss your return??

    Yep med school starts at the end of the month - i cannot wait. and i love that photo i posted :p: i may attend talk on the 22nd although im not so sure psych is my thing, alhtough quite a few friends are interested in it after reading trust me. i know i definitely want to go into surgery and i want something pretty hands on. when is the third book out then?
    haha, yes, i'm back (maybe i never went away, eh? ;-)
    well, come on the 22nd and maybe i'll convince you that psych is your thing. i used to think that i wanted to do surgery, as did lots of my friends - the reality of surgery is quite different to the image that people have of surgery - it's very disjointed, little continuity of patient care unless you're in very specialist area - some people like this, but i started getting the feeling it was more like being a well-paid carpenter or plumber, which wasn't really what i went into medicine for. It's quite strange to see how, a few years after graduating, people who were convinced they knew what they wanted to do while at medical school, have gone into completely different areas - there are so many factors that you take into account when you're actually faced with having to dedicate the rest of your life to something which aren't immediately obvious when you're a student.

    maybe you all know something i don't, but why are you buying text books now, before you've started your course?? personally, i'd wait until the first week - often medical schools have second hand books at very cheap prices for sale, and also, certain medical schools prefer (and therefore take the exam questions directly from) certain text books which you won't know until the lecturer's tell you. i'd hold off until you start the course.

    I got that for Virgin Rail. I had a problem with my london tickets and she was going on for ages but I didn't have a clue what she was going on about, eventually, she spoke in 2 word sentences for me. Maybe a higher proportion of the virgin market is targetted towards hindi speakers.

    It doesn't help much even if you ring, to be honest. Sometimes it does if you're lucky enough to get one of the ones with a brain.
