-FOR THE STUDY GROUP, you need 2 basic books, repertory and materia medica.
A. Repertory (symptoms and the remedies associated): there are several,
1. REPERTORY OF HOMEOPATHIC MATERIA MEDICA BY JAMES TYLER KENT inexpensive but does not have the more modern authors information.
2. SYNTHESIS BY FREDERICK SCHROYENS
The best repertory available. Is costly, but is the best, you get what you pay for. Many contributors, and many additions, based, of course, on Kent's original work above. Costly
THE COMPLETE REPERTORY BY ROGER VAN ZANDVOORT
B. Materia medica (the remedies and their indications):
MATERIA MEDICA WITH REPERTORY BY WILLIAM BOERICKE M.D.
An old standby, been used for many years and is acclaimed for it's concise, accurate portability, has a useful short repertory at the back of book. If you want to save money, this is one answer, if possible get one which has the relationship of remedies included in some editions. Cheap
CONCORDANT MATERIA MEDICA by Frans Vermeulen
An excellent condensed materia medica, no duplications, a compilation of 11 of the most respected classical authors. Drawback: Expensive.
The best materia medica for constitutional prescribing:
PRISMA by Frans Vermeulen
A great volume, has much background information on each remedy. Everything from the esoteric to the chemical descriptions. The most useful are the main symptom section where he inserts quotes from known authors for many keynotes. Expensive
