The medical equivalent of the Junior Woodchuck Guidebook.
Excellent lay out - well organized.
Good clinical approach to most medical problems. If you're able to make a tentative diagnosis this book will guide you the rest of the way through the process; Diagnostic criteria, differential diagnosis, lab. tests to perform, treatment, prognosis and pitfalls. It doesn't provide exhaustive information on all medical issues but it'll most certainly get you and your patients through the shift in one piece.
Don't leave home without it!

This is the bible for medical students, and contains pretty much everything you will need to know on the wards. Having the most up to date version is not essential, and I really found few differences between this and the previous one. Guidelines change so often that the only way to be truly up to date is to check the current NICE guidelines. For every day use, any vaguely recent version will do.

One of the most comprehensive textbooks around for medical students - some might complain it has too much information, and really it does! So many diseases covered, and includes quite a few algorithms as well for emergency situations. Always good to have around, well written although short-hand is sometimes overused to cram more information into a page!

This is the internationally renowned, megatastic book to beat all books when it comes to doing your job as a doctor. It has all the prerequisites necessary; it's concise, it has all the information you need to identify , and manage all manner of complaints and all in a pocket size book. Other books sit on the shelf and gather dust whereas this will stick with you for your formative years when you are still figuring out the gaps in your education. Nothing else will ever come close except for a new edition perhaps.

Slightly disappointed with the 8th edition. Virtually nothing new compared to 7th, irritating colors, a few useless photos, a few extra pages here and there.

The 7th edition is probably the best medical book know to mankind. If you own this already, its IMHO not worth upgrading to 8th Ed.
