Hi,i am graduated in medicine in italy (it takes six years).So it was long time that i have studied the basic science subjects.i forgot about anatomy,biochemistry,histology,embriology etc........So i want to study these materials in texts instead of review books or high-yield books alone sothat i can understand the concepts better.if i use only review books i must memorize instead of understand.i have also studied in italian language.So which book could you suggest me for these materials?what about the time?i think i will study hard but i have difficulty to estimate the time enough for me to prepare for step1.any advice will be useful for me.i think those who take step1 soon after their 2nd or 3rd have an advantage cuz they can answer the questions based on their preparation from review books but also from their class lesson(they have fresh memory).i miss the last one advantage
help please

If I understand you correctly you want to know which English books you can use to read up on these subjects. Well, the ones most commonly used in American medical schools are:

Gross Anatomy: Keith L. Moore's Clinical anatomy or Richard Snell's Clinical Anatomy

Embryology: Langman's medical embryology

Physiology: Arthur C. Guyton's Medical Physiology

Biochemistry: Lippincott's 3rd Edition for Biochemistry

Histology: Ross's Medical Histology

I'm just taking a guess as to the name's of the books but those are all the authors. Hope this helps.

And please refrain from double posting. Thanks :)

Thanks a lot man, for doing the work I was just too lazy to do :)
Can't say that I know for sure about those subjects, but hopefully someone else will stumble through here and let us know. Keep checking back, someone else is sure to know.
Thanks Majid, I agree with you on the biochem too. Didn't know too much about the neurology/hematology books though. You've been a big help all around.
