dievollnerdin yeah but… not so useful books. Or at least not all and not for me XD It’s lab medicine, hygiene and public health care, professional diseases. And I now realise I forgot to buy one book XD but I am really struggling to find these classes interesting… and hygiene is 12 cfu (credits, where each credit is about 18 hours of study) which means it’s a huge exam and that’s madness! Anatomy is 18. Radiology is like 3, just to have some comparisons. Ugh, it’s going to be long semester and the other one won’t be happy either because there is legal medicine with all the laws to know by heart… I prefer more clinical stuff XD
jenns-meanderings at least I have my parents pay for them but it’s making me even more guilty about being behind. I ask them so much money and I don’t even do exams! :/ we have money and that’s why I buy books even if I could only study on transcriptions of lectures… I love having books and I think many could come in handy. But some are so poorly written that spending so much for them is really painful for me. And once I bought a cardiology book and an ophthalmology book from the same series: cardiology 776 pages, 59 euros, ophthalmology 212 pages, 37 euros. Why?????
My internal medicine book costs 328 euros. It’s a house rent. My father received it as some sort of present from a friend who works where they print it and he donated it to his ward only to “steal” it later so that I could study on it because with that much money you can feed a person for months and they didn’t want to spend that much and they are right -.-“””
It’s just madness. My family is rather rich so it’s ok (even if they still have three children to take care of not only me) but people who are not?
