The best books for surgery interns:
The most recent edition of Pocket Pharmacopia
The Surgical Intern Survival Guide by Chamberlain (very cheap litttle book that has everything that you need)
One of the two big texts: Sabistons or Greenfield but find out which one your program uses. (I try to read at least 30 minutes each day from one of these and 2 hours each weekend day that I am off.) I usually read the chapters that cover the rotation that I am on.
Re-read Lawrence or Advanced Surgical Recall for ABSITE since you have about 6 months to this exam.
Keep Mont Reid in your pocket for reading between cases. This book has great information that can be digested in a very short time. Very good for procedures when you need a quick refresher.
Beg, borrow or steal a copy of "The Houseofficers Guide to the ICU". This is a small book but the most competely useful ICU book that can be found. This book is also out of print so buy it on E-bay if you see it. This book beats the Marino book hands down and can be read completely in a couple of hours.
