    Are there any good medical magazines that are on the premed level? I usually read before bed and I'm a bit bored of the usual sports and gaming magazines. Thanks!

    Sorry bud...just needed a laugh. I really don't know of any specific mag on a "premed" level. Consumer Reports on Health is a good one for just general health news and advice. I would imagine if you go to a Borders or something, you will find at least one medical mag that will interest you.

    I read Wired, and read the NYTimes and sometimes wallstreet journal. but the generic science magazines like discover/american scientist/sciam are also okay... i just happen to prefer technology reading over particle physics drivel - but if you want to get smart, read the economist or political magazines with the purpose of reading a far left or far right opinion. You'll get better at VR just by having read a lot of articles that could be critically interpreted.

    :laugh: that made my evening.

    i love sdn.

    OP: i read time and newsweek. its good for current events plus has some science and health articles (admittedly written on a popular science-type level, nothing as detailed as a science journal).

    Seconded. It's really refreshing to see text that's written for a more educated audience.

    Reading books is sometimes more helpful if you want to learn about a bigger topic. I read a great book this week called the Ascent of Money by Niall Fergeson. Hes a professor at harvard and all of his books are really cool. This ones about the financial history of the world up to the present moment - def check it out if you are interested in that kind of thing.
