    So far, I read a couple chapter in the Brunner and Suddarth's Medical Surgical Nursing and I like the book. My school is using Pharmacology and the Nursing Process by Lilley, that book received a 5 stars on Amazon and other sites. I believe it is a good book. Last semester, I was using Anatomy and Physiology by Tortora, that was a great book in my opinion. I hope I was able to help you.

    Brunner & Suddarth is a great book. It wasn't part of our curriculum but I heard about it and bought it anyway. A few of my friends were always looking to borrow it. I highly recommend it.

    We use Brunner & Suddarth's Medical Surgical Nursing text by Smeltzer and Bare. I personally like it. It's huge, so expect at least a few spinal injuries during your program. There's also a study guide that you can purchase that goes with the textbook.

    Some of my classmates have said they didn't like it because it's "too technical". I like it a lot though.
