HASH(0xaa1feb10) out of 5 stars Very very useful for allied health students May 14 2013
By RedTerrier - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I used this book for a class at UCLA, and it was fantastic. The writing in most anatomy books is quite dry, but this one does a good job of tying anatomy and physiology together in a readable, layperson-friendly format. I especially loved the parts on EKGs and sodium ion pumps. Great diagrams and useful tables helped me study many a night, and I consider this my favorite A&P textbook of all (I've used 3 different texts, and am about to start Physician Assistant school using a 4th).

Hard to believe I'm giving a textbook 5 stars...

HASH(0xaa12e1bc) out of 5 stars not as advertised Jan. 15 2013
By Goldensoul - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book did not come with an access card/code for the etext. It's this element which makes the textbook so costly. Without it shouldnt have been so expensive.

HASH(0xa9ed7738) out of 5 stars Fast Shipping May 13 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I waited to get my text to see if i would actually need a book because some professors don't even use them, and after seeing the price at the university book store i thought i would try to find it cheaper than $200.00 for a book i would only use once. Renting this text made it cheaper and reduced my pile of books around the house because i can send it back. I received my textbook 3 days after ordering, so waiting to get it was no be deal because of the fast standard shipping!

This book was essential in me getting an A in this class. The pictures and in-depth detail was great!!!! I absolutely recommend this book for anyone studying this subject.
HASH(0xa9ed77ec) out of 5 stars It's good for basic concepts Aug. 13 2015
By Ojisan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have taught out of this book. It's good for basic concepts, but actually leaves out important facts that are needed if you want your students to understand the physiology in especially the nervous, respiratory, urinary and cardiovascular systems. This book is insufficient in its breadth and depth for anyone at the EMT-Paramedic level or above.
