I know some of you are magical at the internet ... so could anyone hook me up with an e-version of Simpson's Forensic Pathology (any edition)? I realised quite recently - i.e. today - that I really need a book for this exam and it's in about three weeks, so my chances of buying it/finding a copy in the library are slim. I tried looking for downloads myself but I nearly gave my computer another virus... HALP?

You can try ichapters. You are able to buy only the chapters you need. I used it to by a diet analysis program, but I know other people who have bought downloads. I am in the US hopefully it will work for you.

Uh, what I meant was 'download for free'. Whoops, should have mentioned that! I'm such a freeloader. D:

Have you a torrent program of some variety? Using Xtorrent I found it buried in a massive thing called Great Science Textbooks DVD - I am downloading it right now just to make sure that it isn't just a pile of shite - I can always (if it is in actuality a useful thing) pass it on to you over the magic of the email. =) Really I just want to see if there are any interesting stories that a lay-person might possibly understand inside - the closest I have gotten to reading a medical text is 'The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat', which hardly counts.

I'm pretty sure my college acom blocks torrent (for good reason, lol). I would LOVE you to email it, if you found it - offwhitetower@gmail. Forensics textbooks have pretty horrific pictures, if that's any use? There was one of a kid who got accidentally locked in a box and wasn't found for weeks - there was mould growing on him. D:

Well bugger, instead I got Forensic Human Identification, An Introduction, edited by Thompson and Black. Still rather interesting, though knowing how stringent profs can be about reading lists, perhaps not useful to you.

Best way to find/download a book on the internet (imo) is using mirc. Just connect to the Undernet server, and join #bookz. If this book is available on the internet you will find it there and I have never had any virus problems with any file over there.

That sounds awesome, but unfortunately my acom blocks torrents. D:
