I am currently going for my RN but will be applying to CRNA colleges when the time comes. I am wondering what books you have all had to get and also what books you recommend that you have also bought.
Since i will be having "downtime" between colleges, I feel i should keep fresh in studying as well as getting a jumpstart on what I will need to know later.

I notice that posters tend to shy away from giving information about CRNA school to OP's who have yet to finish Nursing School.
You can try searching this bulletin board using key words, or try going to Amazon
.com and search through their popular book lists regarding the subject. You could always go to EBay and search for the most expensive Anesthesia Books.
Try key words in your library database. Try looking up websites of professional organizations that recommend books or personalized webistes from students that have already been through the program. There are endless ways of obtaining pertinent literature. Journals and Articles was a great suggestion. I believe you can obtain subscriptions fairly cheap from EBay. Anesthesia Journals are very expensive and I believe you must be either Certified or in a program to have access to them. Someone correct me if I am wrong.
Hope this helps. Good luck with your studies.
Edit: You can also try going to the site of the major publisher of Medical literature: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins and look through their Anesthesia collection. Have you tried calling the school and inquire about recommended literature? Whats the worst that could happen, right?
