    I'm starting in August and I was wondering where do we get the supply and book list from? Do we get it from the book store? Or do we contact someone for it? I want to go ahead and get everything I need so I don't have to rush to get it when school starts..

    they give it to you at orientation or email it, but if you check the booklist by campus and put in the codes of the 4 classes we have to take you will see the list of recommended and required texts. they also sell a boxed package for about $950 will all the books (recommended and required) that you could get if you can afford it. you should wait though cause you might not need all.

    everybody in the program advises that we start reading the potter and perry book so you could get it now if you want, we will be using the 8th edition.

    also the evolve elseiver site has study guides for the nursing fundamentals book, we all have account there already since we had to register with them to take the hesi.

    someone who got started this month posted this a few months ago (nb. the jarvis and perry and potter books are now in 6th and 8th editions respectively):

    I actually got the 6th edition from the library, most of the basic info is the same the editions keep changing to fix grammatical and spelling errors and to update changing medical info.

    Dosage Calculations (A Ratio-Proportion Approach) by Gloria Pickar

    In January they used the 3rd edition I think it's still the same, in any case you can use this version to practice, I got it at the library at try putting it on hold.

    In your previous post about the list of books which someone posted that you need and don't need, this book was listed as you don't need it. Do you know which campus that person went to? I'm not saying that I'm going to base my book purchases on what someone else stated, but if I can save some money here and there by not purchasing a book that was useless that would help.

    I'm getting anxious to start and hope the new book list comes out soon!!!

    I thinks she was at South, Someone told me that the lecturer for maths gives most of the notes so you hardly use the text. You could wait until the first day of class to see what they say though.
