    Is there a way to immune yourself from the trauma of looking at horribly preserved dead bodies. Some guy is posting pictures and I'm pretty sure I'm scarred for life.

    By the way, I have a hunch that the atlas purpleprism is referring to might be "Mcminn's Atlas of Anatomy." It totally fits this description: "... an incredible one with actual pictures of all the bones, muscles, nerves, etc."
    Thanks. And I think you may be right.

    You probably must know which books to study from by now, but I think you'll need to study these books; Snell's/KLM, BD Chaurasia for Anatomy, Guyton and Hall for Physiology, Lippincott's and Langman/KLM for Embryology. Just remember, the teachers will probably tell you a list of books to study and seniors will recommend another list of books, but you'll have to see which books suit you and then study them and plan studies accordingly. BTW, which books are you going to study?

    Well, I think everyone's gonna be scared the first time, but the only way is to face it and probably we'll all become immune after occasional classes... by the way, why's he posting such pictures, to scare freshmen?

    Because his older brother studies there and he's showing off his knowledge. :p
    I wanted to ask, if we buy most of the original books, how much do you think they'll cost, altogether?

    Well i bought all my books from Union Bookstore. You know the one in Anarkali although there is a store "Multiline Bookstore" on Hall Road too. All the books there are very reasonably priced. But then there arre different prints of the same books. e.g. Anatomy by B D Churasia is in 2-3 price ranges. The best is for Rs. 495. So it depends which print you buy. Similarly Grey's Anatomy is for Two Thousand something too although the best print is for Rs. 8000. So yeah, you get the picture.

    Asalamu alikum!
    I'm trying to find it out for myself but still needs your opinion on it. Which subject out of these

    A. Anatomy
    B. Biochemistry
    C. Physiology
    D. Histology
    E. Embryology

    are you people finding
    1.more time-demanding?
    2.kind of a dry subject?
    3.interesting one and easy?
    Any anyother review you people might wana give?

    Doctors are also most welcome to comment and help us out find where we need to pay more attention and which subject gonna give us hard time?

    Waslam!

    His major contribution to medical science was his famous book al-Qanun which remained supreme for SIX CENTURIES and surveyed the entire medical knowledge available from ancient and Muslim sources. Al-Qanun is like this massive medical book even worse than B.D anatomy (as has no pic) but I still hope to give it a read someday.

    Ok, I'll share some information tomorrow in the MCAT 2013 thread. I just need to organize my tips and ideas into a presentable piece of writing.

    Hi,

    As stated, following are really useful websites (with videos) for Medicine.

    1. Dr. Najeeb Lectures: Great videos especially the introductory one J. Link:

    2. Bozeman’s Anatomy and Physiology: Use these videos as a Preview tool. Link:

    3. 3D Anatomy Modules:
    a. and
    b.
    c.
    d.

    4. BD Chaurasia Anatomy Video: This is a video series on Youtube. I came across this in June, and saved the links to the first parts of the videos on abdomen, head, upper and Lower, so that I could view these after the MCAT. Off course, I didn’t know Youtube was going to be banned. So, here’re the links to the videos I have (If you have any links to any videos, embed them here by pasting link and clicking embed video-film icon on the editor bar):











    Personally, I loved Dr. Najeeb lectures videos, superb!

    @ cefspan: i won't announce here which medical colege but has inboxed u the name

    @ rizwan: haahaa! good to know that :p
    so which subject you people finding difficult? I'm just hating anatomy. I dun like the way they teach us anatomy there. I mean i'm not enjoying studies... Physio is the best amongst the other subjects. Biochem is also fine.

    Guys, for anatomy, i don't use much online help. Just see b.d videos sometimes. Is that alright?

    Personally, Anatomy requires the most work. Yes, I agree Physiology is the best. I also find BD videos helpful.
    I think Snell and KLM are enough.
