    Hi there. Talking about it with two fellows, we find Moore's Anatomy pretty... basic. Or something like that. We use Latarjet's. Greeting from México!

    Hi,
    in Czech Republic (Europe) we have recommended Histology by Junquiera and Embriology by Moore, too. And very useful was Netters atlas for anatomy or Sobotta atlas of anatomy. Other books are mostly written by ours professors...

    Moore isn't basic just have another way to teach the same things. I like it Sobotta. We also use the Yokochi, ( has actual images of dissected bodies) And please don't forget NETTER.
    Celular Biology: Cooper
    Histology: Gartner and please check this book is my favorite: histology and cell biology: an introduction to pathology. Abraham kierszenbaum ( Everyone read it gartner I read this and now I'm in fourth year and I still use it :) )
    Phisiology: Guyton
    Pathology: Robbins
    Pharmacology: Goodman and Gilman
    Semiology: Mosby , Súros and Argente
    Internal Medicine: Harrison
    Peds: Nelson
    Ginecology and Obstetrics: Williams

    In clinical medicine your right hand must be databases, the latest information is in there
    Always pick the book you like it, no the one who everyone reads.

    Well I didn't mean to call "basic" to Moore, but "like basic". It's complicated to explain. I use every resource I find useful. I wouldn't use (and nobody would) Yokochi's as main textbook. That's exactly what I meant. We all love Moore, but sometimes we require a different, maybe more detailed information about details (?). And Netter doesn't even need to be mentioned. He was a GENIUS, brilliant illustrations yet highly described.
    By the way, Great tips!

    Hi everyone!

    In my own perspective i preffer this books:

    Anatomy: Snell's Clinic Anatomy for medical students. Very didactic I think.
    Histology: Ross. I really love the photos of real tissues. Also with the book you get a CD were you can install a computer program with the photos and views as a microscope!
    Phisiology: This is difficult. But I guess my vote is for Best & Taylor. Very didactic. Is like phisiology for dummies :p
    Inmunology: I love Abbas and Janeway (I have read all the last one!)
    Embriology: Simply Moore.
    Pathology: Interesting. I think Robins is the best. Lots of real pictures!
    Semiology: Surós and Argente. I think those are the best.

    Greeetings from Mexico! :D

    Physiology: Boron & Boulpaep Medical Physiology, it's like a bible
    Cellular Physiologie: Becker's world of the cell (Pearson)
    Histology: Netters essential histology
    Embryology: Larsens Human Embryology

    Well, I'm from Brazil, too, but I use other books...

    Anatomy: Atlas of Human Anatomy (Netter) and Functional Neuroanatomy (Angelo Machado)

    [​IMG]

    Histology: Basic Histology (Junqueira/Carneiro)

    [Broken External Image]:http://isbn.abebooks.com/mz/17/07/0071440917.jpg

    Embryology: Lange's Medical Embryology (Sadler)

    Biochemistry: Textbook of Biochemistry with Clinical Correlations (Devlin)

    Physiology: Medical Physiology (Ganong), and "Fisiologia", from a brazilian professor called Margarida de Melo Aires

    [​IMG] (yes, this is the actual book!)

    Semiology: This is the jewel of the crown. My school (actually, older students) wrote a book about semiology, which is the greatest chair and our differential among all other schools. Then, I use the "Propedêutica Médica da Criança ao Idoso" (Medical Semiology from Children to Aged, in a free translation), from Irineu Massaia and José Carlos Bonadia (editors and my professors, too LOL).

    [​IMG] (oh, God, I got very proud each time I see this book! :D Look, it's my school logo in the sleeve!)

    Pathology: Robbins / Bogliolo (a brazilian book)

    [​IMG]

    Pharmacology: Katzung

    Internal Medicine: Harrison or Cecil (Cecil is now adapted to brazilian diseases, too :D )

    I prefer using the books in the same language they were written - since we lost a lot with translations. Then, using books written originally in Portuguese saves me a lot of time AND understanding :p

    Note: Did you know that Junqueira's, one of the most important books about Histology, was written originally in Portuguese? Yes. And the authors are brazilian... Come on... LOL

    In Costa Rica, it depends on the university and the teachers. For me:
    - Embriology: Langman (Sadler) (and Pedernera for clinical cases)
    - Histology: Ross
    - Anatomy: Netter or Sobotta for Atlas; Gray's or Latarjet for theory
    - Biochemistry: Devlin (quite complicated) and Marks.
    - Physiology: Boron (I'm amazed this book wasn't mentioned on any of the posts above)
    - Neuroanatomy: Snell
    - Semiology: Mosby, Surós
    - Pathology: Robbins
    - Internal Medicine: Harrison
    - Pediatrics: Nelson (but people's turning to Oski)
    - Ob/Gyn: Novak, Williams, Gabbe, DeCherney, (some people like the old Schwarcs)
    - Surgery: Schwartz (I can't remember others)
