Med School Confidential is a book that I recommend to ALL pre-meds, no matter of their age.

My favorites always involve the GCS (Glasgow Coma Scale). I always love it when a patient is given a GCS of 16 (fyi, the range is 3-15). I guess that means, spontaneous eye opening, alert and oriented, following commands and has ESP! The other day we got a report of a patient coming with a GCS of 2. When we informed them that the lowest GCS you could have was a 3, they [the hospital] replied "I know, but he's REALLY sick, so we figured he 'ought to be a 2."
