I was hoping if you could give me your opinion on these two books.

One is Essentials of Rubin's Pathology by Emanuel Rubin.

http://www.amazon.com/Essentials-Ru...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1239810864&sr=1-1

The next one is Basic Concepts in Pharmacology by Janet Stringer.
http://www.amazon.com/Basic-Concept...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1239812348&sr=1-1

I was especially wondering about the second one and if you think its enough for a pharmacology book. I have Basic and Clinical pharmacology by Katzung but I saw this book and was wondering if its good.

For pathology I have Robbins basic pathology but this one seems shorter and I've heard that Rubin is a good author.

I don't have Rubin's, but I have used Robbins Basic Path and it covered everything I needed for class. I really didn't find myself wanting MORE depth.

Edit: On second read, I can't tell if you're saying Robbins or Rubins is shorter. If I'm looking for a more condensed read, I use Rapid Review Path, just FYI.

Golijan's rapid review of path and robbins review of path are worth having as supplements to the big Robbins.

For pharm, lippincott's- way to go.
