I talked to the director last week. She said that the anatomy pharmacology I mentioned is actually anesthesia pharmacology and that it's been dropped from the summer quarter. So that's one less class we have to worry about initially
I also asked about booklists so that I could possibly study ahead. I anticipated I would not
get one, but I did get a little more than I had expected. She was able to give me last year's books with the disclainer that they could change. Here's what she said . . .
The required text for Anatomy was: Drake, R.L., Vogl,W., Mitchell., Gray's Anatomy for Students, Elsevier, 2005. They also require one of several atlases including Grant's Atlas of Anatomy by Agur, Atlas of Human Anatomy by Netter, Color Atlas of Hyman Anatomy by McMinn, Color Atlas of Numan Anatomy by Rohen, or Anatomy: A Regional Atlas of the Human Body by Clemente. They recommend choosing one that you find most suitable to your individual needs.
The required textbook for Biochemistry is Lippincotts' Illustrated Review: Biochemistry, Third Edition by Champe, Harvey and Ferrier.
There is no textbook for Biophysics.
I've already ordered loads of books about chem, o. chem, biochem, nursing pharm, the icu book and perhaps best of all 'basics of anesthesia'. I started in on the last two and I plan to finish basics of anesthesia since I'm sure it will relate. Biochem reads a little like greek to me right now
so I'm hoping to have time to go through chem and o. chem. Maybe the Illustrated Biochem Midwestern required will be an easier read than Schaums outline of biochem.
I hesitate on pouring over an anatomy textbook. My concern is that the class may not go cover to cover, as many don't. I'm hoping that I've still got a decent understanding of anatomy from my undergrad and I'll only have to fill in the gaps
