This a list of bitcoin exchanges recommended by me
These two exchanges are very good if you have to buy a small amount of bitcoins, otherwise it could be difficult if you have to buy more then 25-50 bitcoins at once or even more.
Recently TheRockTrading improved its liquidity, now it’s possible to trade more then 100 btcs at once without a significant amount of order slippage.
Other exchanges not recommended by me but still used by the bitcoin community, probably because of high liquidity.
