I wanted to find out from the other students studying in Europe (especially in the English parallel) as to which books they're using for physiology and biochemistry??

I currently am using Guyton's but I don't really like it because it's just so huuge and I'm more of a note-taking person (and taking notes form Guyton's is just too time-consuming and ineffective). What do you guys think of Ganong? or the Guyton's pocket guide? or the Physiology coloring book by Wyatt?

For biochem, I'm using Harpers (again I don't like it too much coz it's a bit complicated) and Lippincott Reivew of Biochem. The problem is that Lippincott's is not enough for the entire biochem course (it's serves as a review book and that's it).

Thank a lot in advance...
