There was an idea a while ago about tarting a thread where we post our reading lists, what courses we are studying, etc and then try to find online copies of the texts mentioned. I think we should revive this idea and since I can't find the old thread to bump I suggest we start here. So has anyone got any reading lists to post and then we can go away and find the texts for free?

Brock Biology of Micro Organisms
D. Sheehan Physical Biochemistry
Janeway's Immunobiology
Principles and techniques of biochemistry and molecular biology
Histology: A text and atlas with correlated cell and molecular biology (not all, just for one course)
Housecroft's Chemistry

A big thank-you to all the contributors so far.

I've been speaking to some people involved in the runnings of higher education, and the idea of a wiki to aid in self-education seems to be going down well. The only problem is we have to get it going first.

We need some sort of webspace, and someone capable of putting up a basic wiki from the source code; we can build from there.
If anyone is interested in helping, please let me know.

Which modules are you doing badly on? How are you finding labs? I'm a bit worried about my end of year exams, as I'm awful at mechanisms, and I think they account for about a third of my main two modules, so I need to spend the next couple of months going HAM on mechanism revision. Also for my second maths module (first was piss easy), I'm struggling with some of the more advanced calculus stuff.

So far I'm doing okay though. Already passed a module, and in all the exams for various modules I've done already, I've not got below 70%. Not sure how I'm doing in labs though, as I was mediocre at inorganic labs, atrocious at organic labs, but I'm currently doing physical labs which are pretty nice and easy.

Its choc a block ith stuff buts its hard to concentrate on because of the bloody colour scheme. Everything looks identical.

My course is structured so i have loads of small modules and lots of end of term exams, i had a piss easy maths module and a stats one which i failed because i overslept on the exam haha. We do 120 credits worth, ive completed 36 out of 54 credits so far (failed a 12 credit course (mathematical symmetry) and my 6 credit stats course.) I need 90 to pass the year (i think), which i ill probably get exactly. Im a terrible student i really dont deserve to be here. MOTIVATION where does it come from...

Also yes mechanisms are arsefuckery, i have about forty to learn for a course i now have to pass. Labs are alright, i can write a good lab report

Im only just achieving forty percent, thats how wank I am.

>Labs are alright, i can write a good lab report
I can write a good lab report too, but I can't do the practical side of it for shit. I ended up spending 14 hours making aspirin. It was meant to take less than 4 hours, but I had to restart 4 times. First time I made something that wasn't aspirin, second time I got a yield of ~65% but then spilled the sample into an icebath and lost it, third time I got a yield of ~15%, fourth ~20%; shit yield meant I lost about 70% of my practical marks right off the back, so it was 14 hours wasted more or less. One of the other experiments I did resulted in an impure product. I added the solvent and filtered it to purify it, and it all dissolved into the solvent when it was supposedly insoluble and I got 0% for that experiment as I couldn't even write a lab report for it.

Thank god for physical labs which is just maths and data loggers.

There's a copy of that on libgen.

>She swam quietly for the edge of Hudson Park, where she’d left all her clothes. She had to be naked; the lake allowed no barrier between her body and its touch. She luxuriated in the way the water stroked her as she moved through it. No human hands could ever mimic that liquid combination of caress and embrace—not that too many had tried lately.
>Suddenly something grabbed her and pulled her firmly underwater. She was startled but knew better than to struggle. She recognized the touch at once. Although it was unusual for the lake spirits to take her twice in one night, she was not afraid. Quite the opposite, in fact.
>As she slid deeper beneath the surface, the liquid sensation against her skin changed to something more solid. Hands made of water, but somehow firmer, touched her everywhere at once, gently squeezing and stroking. She was parted to allow the entrance of something warm and phallic, which filled her expertly and unerringly found her most sensitive spot.
>We love you, the voices sighed in her head. We want you to know it.
>Oh, God, I know it, she thought back. Take me, use me, I’m yours.
>We need you, the voices said. Often she’d tried to remember if they were male or female, or even if they spoke English, but the effects on her body kept any such in-the-moment analysis at bay. She understood them, and they, her; that was all that mattered.
>She was pushed gently down to the bottom and felt the soft silt against her back and shoulders. Her arms were pulled out to the side and held there, while her breasts were encircled and caressed. She undulated against the pressure, driving it deeper inside and moaning silently into the enveloping darkness. She clenched and opened her fists, straining against the gentle pressure holding her down, knowing she was both entirely helpless and completely safe.

It's probably just not out there. If nobody bought a title and released it, or scanned and OCR-ed it, then you're not going to find it. In fact there is no retail ebook of "Blue Rage, Black Redemption".

I've been collecting bootleg ebooks for the last six years and black-interest stuff was always under-represented in what bootlegs are out there, although it's starting to change.

It's £5.39 + £2.80 p&p on Amazon Marketplace.

I honestly thought that this was common sense.

Tried again, this time I clicked download whereas last time I hit enter upon entering the captcha. It claimed it would serve me the rar file this time, then complained and said it couldn't read the source file. Tried again, it said I had used my downloads for this hour. Fuck these stupid cunting sites. I'm never going to read that book.

I won't believe any of you have downloaded it until I see a link to it hosted somewhere that ends in .pdf posted.

I seem to remember posting it previously and it was. Anyone brave enough to try?

Could we maybe be told what the list contains? Would that help the spammers or anything?

I remember talking about Guy N Smith here ages ago and I uploaded his books to some download provider then was unable to post the links here. Maybe it was DepositFiles.

Worst case scenario is having to come back in an hour and try again. The other place trend to crack down on anything other than a few mostly because people get paid for downloads (sort of). Given they have an absolutely massive userbase posting links on some boarda could be very lucrative.

That was the one.


I remember their defunct /rs/ function but maybe they just allowed rapidshare becuase it doesn't give kickbacks to the uploader. I imagine they pay chump change anyway unless you have a blog with 3000 bootleg albums on.

You find in some communities that people use some really fucking awful hosts. In general, the worse the host, the more likely it is they're just uploading to get money or credit. If you see some sites where people post large files and haven't split them into small enough chunks, you get people complaining that "hey, this file can only be downloaded with a premium account" and the response will always be "go premium, it's totally worth it" by which they mean "go premium, preferably from the link on that error page, because then I get a substantial commission". Some of the more odious places advertise to downloaders about their high speeds and no wait times while at the same time advertising to uploaders about the commission they can earn on premium sales and rebills for users that go premium having landed on one of their links. You may remember old Rapidshare and Megaupload (pbut) had points systems so that uploaders could redeem their rewards for premium time or merchandise, but not usually cash (though Megaupload apparently did offer cash rewards on the hush-hush). Basically MU going under is what killed /rs/, since suddenly most of the links didn't work (RS were less passive when it came to IP complaints), and none of the alternatives were being indexed.

One of the regular uploaders on /co/ (now gone) would say how in a typical Wednesday to Friday he might get several thousand downloads between everything he uploaded in that time. At one point it was a standing joke that all you needed to earn all the points you'd ever need on e-hentai was to upload a gallery, post a link to it on /a/ and watch the points flood in. Understandably what is perhaps the largest message board on the English-speaking Web doesn't particularly want what is effectively people making money on copyright infringement at their expense.

I've been worried about this post all night. I just can't tell if that apostrophe is meant to be there or not. I've stared at it on my mobile phone in bed, but couldn't post about it because Opera Mini is blocked here (in fact I have to use a web proxy via OM to view the place, which I certainly can't post from).
And of course I'm one of those arseholes who sets their browser to forget everything when I close it so I can't delete the post even if I wanted to.

It's wrong isn't it? It shouldn't be there. I kept refreshing the page in bed expecting the red text to appear.

It is, but your frank and honest delirium on the subject has won me over you cheeky chappie. Run along, you scamp.

Use sci-hub.io

So for example, if you want to open


you add .sci-hub.io after the .org

Alternatively, just copy and paste the DOI into Sci-Hub. That stubborn little Russian lady is doing all of us a favour that work at shit universities with undersubscribed libraries. And non-academics, I guess, but they're not important.
