  2. You may vote under as many nominations as you wish, however, you may only vote for each book itself once.
  3. Sign your vote with a number sign and four tildes, #~~~~, after the most previous vote under the book's nomination. Unsigned votes will be removed.
  4. Any nomination which receives 3 or more votes in one month will automatically be renominated the next month if it is not chosen.
  5. If you wish to include a short comment for your vote, then you may do so. Make sure that if you leave such a comment, that you are also voting for that page.

USMLE Step One Review[edit]

Votes:

  3. R.S.(AUA)--Ramsin Shamouni 23:46, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Comments: There are countless disorganized free and open resources to help study for the USMLEs. So many that only a group of people --working together could integrate them together into one area. With just a little bit more work this could end up as an invaluable resource for everyone in medical school and for everyone interested in medicine. The best thing about the USMLE Step 1 is that it covers every medical disease and problem that effects people. Thus in creating a unified database with all the different free resources, this guide could be used by anyone in the medical field.

Medicine[edit]

Votes:

  1. Vikram Vaka 05:58, 6 January 2006 (UTC)
  2. Derbeth talk 23:23, 22 January 2006 (UTC) already has structure, well-known subject
  3. Rob Horning 19:34, 26 January 2006 (UTC) even though I know practically nothing about this subject. It is worth consideration.
Medicine wins with Introduction to Psychology because it is older. --Derbeth talk 08:57, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

Comments:

Medicine is one of the most important subjects of our time, plays a prominent role in all of our lives, and should have a much more comprehensive book than the one currently available.

This book is already very well organized but currently the book and it's various chapters cover a very small percentage of the information that would be found in any standard medical text book.

Expanding this book can be done very easily as there are numerous public domains and other free sources of medical information. With multiple people searching out such domains and free sources that may be freely copied, the content of the book can increase very rapidly.

Introduction to Philosophy[edit]

Votes:

  1. Vikram Vaka 05:58, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

    MasterSheep 21:05, 8 January 2006 (UTC)(user doesn't have 20 edits)
  3. Derbeth talk 23:23, 22 January 2006 (UTC) After some work it might become really good book.
  4. Konstable 02:55, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Comments:

This book is in need of a great deal more work as it fails to cover even a small percentage of the major philosophers, philosophic arguments, or philosophic principles

Awesome idea, but needs more work. I'd like to see this one get more attention though, and hopefully more content as a result.

I think this is general enough that many people could participate.

Introduction to Psychology[edit]

Votes:

  1. Vikram Vaka 05:58, 6 January 2006 (UTC)
  2. Derbeth talk 23:23, 22 January 2006 (UTC)
  3. JMRyan 18:48, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

Comments:

This book is meant to be a comprehensive book addressing all aspects of psychology. There are far too many topics that this book simply fails to cover.

Civilization IV[edit]

Votes:

  1. Mastermind 007 12:00, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

Comments:

Its a Wikibook which features every single information of Civilization including leaders, city managing tips, religions and more for the computer game Civilization IV.

  • I think the subject is too specific to gather broad attention. --Derbeth talk 23:23, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

Mythology[edit]

Comments:~ I notice Finnish mythology is absent from the ToC. Of the north European pre-Christian traditions it is well recorded. Wikipedia has a lot of info.Novialiste 23:43, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

  • I doubt this book has sense in current form. It's easier to browse through mythology categories at Wikipedia. Shall we put effort on this book? --Derbeth talk 23:23, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

  • Should we duplicate 438-page PDF use guide? --Derbeth talk 23:23, 22 January 2006 (UTC)
No. We should produce something of value, easily read and used, which the guide they offer is not. DSYoungEsq 17:09, 26 January 2006 (UTC)
