Medicine and Science, that's me! My name is Giusy Davino and I'm just a 22-years-old medical student in University of Salerno (Italy) with internet access!
"Isn't it strange
That princes and kings
And clowns that caper
In sawdust rings
And common people
Like you and me
Are builders for eternity?
Each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass,
A book of rules;
And each must make -
Ere life is flown -
A stumbling block
Or a stepping stone."
Hello! Sorry if I reply now, but I hadn’t WiFi for a while.
Of course! I can write the books I studied from when I was at the first years of med school (it sounds like you’re at the beginning).
• For Biology: “Molecular Biology of the Cell”, 5th edition, by Bruce Alberts and “Molecular Biology of the Gene”, 7th edition, by James D. Watson.
• For Anatomy: “Gray’s Anatomy”, 40th edition, by Susan Standring (but I found it really hard as a first approach to anatomy, so I helped myself with easier books, such as Anatomy by Anastasi or Mezzogiorno, that are Italians); THIEME, “Atlas of Anatomy”, by Schünke, Schulte and Schumacher (I found it better than Netter); “Clinical Neuroanatomy and Neuroscience”, 6th edition, by M.J.T. Fitzgerald.
• For Genetics, I studied from my professor’s lessons.
• For Histology, I used a bad and difficult Italian book, but I had to because my professor wrote it.
• For Physiology: “Ganong’s Review of Medical Physiology”, 24th edition, but I helped myself with “Guyton and Hall Textbook of Medical Physiology”, 12th edition.
• For Pathology: “Robbins & Cotran Pathologic Basis of Disease” and “General Pathology” by Pontieri.
• For Immunology: “The Immune System” by Peter Parham.
I hope this could help you! Also, as advices, I suggest you to study day by day, following the lessons, and, before of an exam, I think it’s really helpful to divide the pages of the books for the days left. Try to do schemes too.
Hiiii! Thanks a lot! Big up to you and good luck! :)
