I have my list of 26 required textbooks for freshman year. Before I travel cross-country to begin med school, I was at least hoping to buy a few of the necessities used/online, like Netter's Atlas and Lippincott's Biochem. However, it seems like most people recommend 1) holding off, and 2) not buying all of them. Can anyone make me feel better about not having the required books when I start med school? The cheapest prices are on Amazon with Prime eligibility, so I suppose if I find I need them later they're only a couple days away. Do lesson plans follow the textbooks? Is there any way to find out which ones I actually need, besides hearsay? Lastly, should I bring my college textbooks, such as Purves's Neuroscience and Garrett & Grisham's Biochemistry? Thanks in advance.
