What are everyone's top 3-5 books that they just couldn't live without for your first year of anesthesia school? Would love to hear everyone's opinion on this subject.

I agree with "Basics" if only one book

I had purchased Guyton & Hall's Medical Physiology as a reference prior to applying, and found it helpful for the A&P

By far, I believe Morgan/Mikhail will be your best resource. It focuses on important concepts, and is very well organized.

Miller and Barash are move involved, and excellent resources...but very difficult to swallow until you have a solid foundation.

Basics of Anesthesia, by Stoetling (Baby Miller), is a great starter book. However, it misses many advanced concepts that Morgan/Mikhail includes.

Anesthesia for Surgical Procedures by Jaffe is a great resource once you get more clinically involved.

There are other texts that may benefit you...Nagelhout and Stoetling's "Anesthesia for Co-existing disease".

In "Board-Stiff...Preparing for Anesthesia Orals"....the author stated that you'd be better off reading Basics of Anesthesia twice than incompletely reading other books.

Along that thought process, I feel that Morgan/Mikhail (if read several times) will be your best time investment. Keep in mind that it also has incompleteness which will require supplemental material.

For Handbooks, I recommend Ezekial. Very small, lightweight, and great information. However, it's poor binder quality makes it very non-durable.

Hope this helps. Happy
