Ganong Review of Physiology Ganong's Review of Medical Physiology
A bit too short for a textbook, a bit too long for a review book - but this "classic" is a favorite among our medical students.

Berne and Levy's Physiology Berne and Levy's Physiology
There are several good physiology text books each with its strengths and weaknesses. I like this one best - it is well rounded and gives precise explanations of human physiology.

This textbook is mainly geared towards graduate students. On the other hand, molecular biology is going to be the future of Medicine and every student should have a good grasp of the concepts presented here.

Too detailed for most medical students, but if you have a any interest in Pathology this would be your best choice. Beautifully illustrated! If you are looking for something shorter,  go for the "Baby Robbins" or even the
"Fetal Robbins".

Voet's Biochemistry Voet's Biochemistry
It's a "toss-up" between Stryer and Voet. Stryer is "the classic", Voet is a bit more modern with emphasis on biochemical reactions. This is the stuff life is made from! Best choice for students who want to grasp biochemistry, not just pass the exams.
