BooKs for Ucdians (1st year)

Basically, these are some of the books that are popular according to the subjects ( anat,physio,biochem,histo,embryology ), for 1st and 2nd semester. Except for 2nd sem, there are some additional books which i don’t include here since you can borrow them from library. So hope this will help. 🙂

p/s: if u are confuse which one to choose, just choose the *recommended one.


anat moore

This book contains many images. Absolutely amazing images! For those who love pictures, then you may consider this book as your first choice. Obviously, it has less text than Moore

Langman’s Medical Embryology

by Thomas W Sadler

This book is a must for you to have! This would be your main reference for embryology subject other than your lecture notes. This book explains almost all embryological concepts and easy to understand.


the developing human The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology by Keith L. Moore, T.V.N Persaud

This book has more pictures and of course it is heavier than langman’s. There is a lot to borrow in library, but it is quite a ‘hot’ book especially during exam weeks.
