Anyone have any good suggestions of books to read over summer to increase my knowledge?
Encyclopedia and Merriam-Webster Dictionary
lol, how about some good chemistry books to give a head start so i am not overwhelmed?
Wow... just read something leisurely like harry potter...
head start for what? Med School? General Chemistry?
general chemistry, you think that idiot guide to chemistry is a good start ?
I think that you should just relax and start schoolwork when school starts...
General Chem isn't anything that needs to be prepared for, imo. It's not that difficult.
ok well is there anything else anyone recommends reading cause i just got on this kick to read everything anyone read anything worth reading? maybe non school related
If you're in your post-high school summer just chill out. Suck in the freedom of still being a kid and get the hell off of SDN.
Yeah im non-traditional student im 24 years old enjoy reading in the warm sun in new york today just looking for some good books to read i went to barnes and noble on saturday and bought getting into medical school by Sanford Brown MD pretty interesting i have the last chapter to read and its only liek 10 pages so im looking for something else
http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/isbnInquiry.asp?z=y&EAN=9780486451459&itm=1 is that the maxim book you are talking about?
Have you read A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers?
No. The men's magazine filled with useless info.
aynrand i have no read that i will pick it up soon thanks
Eh, it's not that useless...
Some good books to read (and good when they ask you "what's the last book you've read" when at an interview...)
- The Grapes of Wrath (Steinbeck)
- Of Mice and Men (Steinbeck)
- 1984 (Orwell)
- To Kill A Mockingbird (Harper Lee)
- Awakenings (Dr. Oliver Sacks) <--- excellent read, was made into a movie which was SUPERB!!!!! I highly recommend watching / reading
Im partial to historical books and classics-
Grapes of Wrath
Memoirs of a Geisha
Chronicles of Narnia (I enjoyed reading deeper into them than I did as a child)
Biographies- usually of missionaries or historical figures (Patrick Henry is great!)
Just don't burn yourself out with too much "academic" reading
