    what's the best medical dictionary out there? My uncle wants to buy me a book before i start med school and i figured that a dictionary would be useful once classes begin. Any suggestions for other types of books would be appreciated.

    Steadman's medical dictionary, definetly I use it all the time. It's huge but it is worth it.
    Congrats on your acceptance and good luck <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> </font><blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote:</font><hr /><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif"> </font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">

If you have the concise version you'll actually take it with you when you study instead of leaving it behind because it's too heavy. But hey, if someone is gonna buy you something, might as well make it the biggest most expensive something possible, right?

    On a totally different note, I applaud you for being practical. I sick of seeing pre-MS1s on this board asking about which anatomy text they should buy and study "just to get a head start," despite everyone telling them not to study anything this summer.
