I was asked by @dankamphetamemes to share my holy grail textbooks and I did, but I thought I’d do you guys one better. I recommended that you should check them out in PDF versions before you buy them because honestly they’ll burn a hole through your pocket - so I gathered all the books I use and a couple of others for you to check out!!
Heres a list of books you’ll find in my google drive:
- Robbins and Cotran’s Pathological Basis of Disease
- BRS Pathology
- Lippincott’s Biochemistry
- Lippincott’s Pharmacology
- Physiology by Linda Costanzo
- BRS Physiology
- Moore’s Clinically Oriented Anatomy
- Gray’s Anatomy Flashcards
- Unfortunately I couldn’t find a PDF version of Medical Microbiology by David Greenwood - Ill keep looking and upload it when I find it
- Guyton and Hall Textbook of Physiology
- Clinical Microbiology made ridiculously simple
- Netters Anatomy Flashcards
- Snells Clinical anatomy by regions
If you happen to face any trouble downloading them or accessing them shoot me a message and let me know
30.05.17 - I PASSED ALL MY EXAMS AND WILL GO INTO THE THIRD YEAR OF MED SCHOOL!!!!
woohoo, all those notes making my brain go mushy was totally worth it. I was so nervous opening up the results, thought I was going to have a heart attack from the stress, but it was all good!! I wish everyone the best of luck with their exams and results!
23.04.17 - so my practical exam (OSCE) didn’t go as well as i wanted it to…sad times.
Oh well, back to focussing on revision for the written finals i guess. Head and neck anatomy is actually not too bad. Too many arteries though haha. Yeah, I have a cup that says H2O but it’s got iced coffee in…symbolic of my life rn
A day is always not enough so you better start when you can
You studied but you failed, well that’s okay
Grades don’t measure your capabilities as a future doctor
Listen every lecture, I know you’re tired studying the whole night, but listening is always an advantage
It’s okay to cry but move on and do your best next time
I know you’re not yet done studying but you also need to sleep and get some rest
You must know your best stuying time
Do not skip your meals. You need it!
Surround yourself with people you will lift your spirit in everything
Choose your friends
It’s okay to missed your bestfriend’s birthday party, you’ll be missing more soon
Find the beauty in everything you do
Studying medicine is a big deal, not just your tuition fee or the time you’ll be spending but you will be handling lives in the future as a physician. If you do not do it with fun, sooner or later, quiting will be an option. This will not be easy but I know you can do it. If others can, we can all do it!
