The only two books that I would recommend getting are:

Dental Materials and Their Selection, 4th ed, O’Brien,

Essentials of Oral Histology & Embryology: A Clinical Approach, 3rd ed. Chiego and Avery

Those were the only two books that I actually used / had a need for. I did reference the path book a few times, but it is not essential. Otherwise, you'll be provided notes for your classes. Also, you'll need an anatomy atlas for the summer, but I referenced mine a few times throughout the year. Hope this helps.
