you are asking wrong questions at a wrong place. most of people that visit here are a way senior than you. I dont even know how do latest editions of these books look like. Ask ur immediate seniors about them. And i would advice that you study simpler books like A.K. Jain, sembulingam or satyanarayan rather then wasting time on these books. Believe me they are more "productive" & you'll end up ultimately with them by your exams.

Means i must focus on books by indian authors rather than jumping on foreign books...!!

just done with first year last week!
for biochem vasudevan is more than enough! Even i bought lippincott but really never got time to read it even once!trust me if you read harper you will go into a boredom induced coma!Definitely not needed!
ohysio is a really interesting subject:I read guyton sometimes for the concepts but it is an incomplete book when it comes to answering the essay type questions asked in exams.You will definitely need to read AK jain/Sembulingam or whichever book your seniors recommend for answering the exam questions!Ganong is also good enough substitute for Guyton!
anat: BDC BDC and only BDC plus buy a nice atlas it will be very useful!
embryo:langman is the best one.Ib singh for diagrams.
histo:Ib singh
nueroanat:Vishram singh
Lastly chill!1st year is a cakewalk and not as hard as everyone says!
You will do great!
PM me if you need anymore help

What about ganong???

For physio ganongs is good book to read.its more concise and crisp, also very helpful for pg entrance.
For biochem u can continue with lipincott, but it has less of text and more of illustrations,so helps in memorizing the subject.

Guyton latest edition is quite better. Its easy qnd understandable.

Some foreign author books are really good for example guyton for physiology. Dont neglect them.
