Hello to all:D

I would like to get some good medical reference books that I will keep long after school and I thought I would get some opions of what would be good to get.

ex..

Medical Dictionary - "Dorlands illustrated Medical Dictionary"...

Anatomy -"Grays"...

etc..

I know there are some really good ones out there.:)

In addition where are some good places to purchase them?:cool:

Thanks in advance:kiss

I dont really know what to tell you except I think Gray's anatomy is a lil too much for us nursing students... I think it leans a lil more for the Dr area...

Mr. L

we use the Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary - 19th edition(it has never let me down)...not very portable though...anyhow, i might goto http://www.barnesandnoble.com, many of the books are reviewd by customers and their system comes up w/ stuff like "other cutomers that bought this book also purchased...." then you can look at that book & read reviews... good luck.

Mr. L

The great thing about Tabors is that it also has symptoms, treatment, prognosis, and nursing implications listed. And in the Appendix, it covers nursing diagnosis. It's a great help for care plans and prep sheets (we were required to these on our patients every week).

Grays Anatomy is an old book. You can probably get a beautiful copy used. I myself inherited mine from my Grandfather the Xray technician.

I purchase ALLOT of my reference books, medical computer programs etc from lww.com, that is lippincott's site. If you don't have the money right away, they will bill you.

Hope this helps!:cool:
