Required texts and some recommended texts will be available for purchase in the Health Sciences Bookstore. The Health Sciences bookstore returns unpurchased texts 3-4 weeks after the semester begins, so don't postpone buying them. Other recommended texts are available in the Health Sciences Library.
Reading the professional literature is vital to your success as a physical therapist. Therefore, access to the required textbooks is essential. Many of the required physical therapy texts have been selected because they will serve as texts for more than one course and/or as good references after graduation. Thus it is suggested these texts be retained as a start to building your own professional library.
The bookstore will order any book in print. Depending on the publisher and date of a book, it may take days or weeks for delivery.
Students are advised to purchase ring binders rather than spiral notebooks for organization of notes and handouts.
