I'm sure this is a really common question, but I just got my book list for my fall semester and it's pretty overwhelming. For my program, Summer 1 required 3 books and some additional free online resources. But, my list for Fall 1 has 11 books, all based around movement science/musculoskeletal + some research and seminar. As a whole, do people find it necessary to have all the books? I'd be less hesitant to bite the bullet and buy them all if I knew I wanted to work in ortho and would refer back to them, or if I was guaranteed to use these books all year (spring 1 is also MSK and movement science). I barely utilized my anatomy text over the summer, so I don't know if I can see this being a smart investment. I'm tempted to see if some of my friends want to split up buying the books, but many of us are commuting a good hour to school, so trading books around as needed wouldn't be a quick/easy task. I appreciate any thoughts, comments, suggestions, etc.!
