    The answer to this question depends on what your needs are. If you are a medical student, you should probably purchase the recommended text of your medical school. If you are purchasing a text for your own use, go to a medical bookstore and check out some of your options. Even better, go to your medical school library and compare some of the different texts there. Again, choose what you like and what suits your learning style.

    The major players (by subject):

    PATHOLOGY:
    Rubin
    Robbins

    INTERNAL MEDICINE:
    Harrison's
    Cecil's

    SURGERY:
    Sabiston's
    Schwartz
    Greenfield's

    Check out these texts on Amazon http://www.amazon.com and read some of their reviews. All of them are good texts and choice is a matter of personal preference.

    to add a few:
    Med: Davidson's: scotch text which is way less detailed than harrison's, but proportionately more readable. everything you need for wards and exams.
    Path:
    Robbins is the mac of all basic med school path texts.
    underwood is another book from the UK. it is also easier to get through than it's american counterpart (robbins). the difference is, robbins isn't as much of a snoozefest as harrison's, so you may want to stick with it.

    Is it really that hard to write out "and" and "please." You know you're not texting us, right? :rolleyes:

    If only I could draw a vagina picture. Unfortunately, there's no smiley for Vonnegut vagina pictures. :(

    You people are crazy. Don't advise this poor fellow to read Robbins. Go with Goljin or mini-Robbins, either will be informative enough to do well, but succinct enough to avoid narcolepsy. BRS isn't in depth enough for primary study, but it makes a good quick review.
