"It explains basic celluar biology, genetics and the immune response in health, before disucssing how these can be altered in disease..The text is well written and it is clear  that the  authors aim to make difficult concepts readily understandable. Extensive high-quality artwork complements he text and the images illstrating disease descriptions help the reader to visualise the information...there is excellent information on 'lifespan alterations', with a particular focus on paediatrics and ageing.The extensive online materials on the associated Evolve website look fantastic, with useful review questions, animations, critical thinking questions and weblinks. Overall, this an exceptional resource that I would recommend highly to all those with an interest in pathophysiology."

The book arrived before it was predicted to, was in excellent condition. I have not had a chance to read the book yet so I don't know if the content is easy to read. I am a second yr nursing student.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too many errors Jan. 15 2012
By Natyloo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This study guide is a valuable tool for a subject/textbook that is very in-depth and overwhelming with information. However, the Practice Exams in the workbook were extremely disappointing. The answer key did not give answers that were even choices for the corresponding questions (i.e., the answer for #1 (for example) would be "J" but the listed answer choices for #1 were only A, B, C, or D) -- this was repeatedly an issue and did not happen on just one or two questions. It was frustrating to study that hard & put full effort into the questions, then to find out you couldn't even rate how you scored. The outlines provided for the chapters in the study guide were helpful, though, so there is some value to the study guide, but you can also use the FREE online resources that are available on evolve.com (see the textbook for more info) -- that website has sample tests, etc that are really helpful and FREE!! (By the way, I have notified the publisher of their errors in the workbook & have still received absolutely no response. Disappointing.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to Read at Times July 16 2012
By Tinasky2005 - Published on Amazon.com
Although this book does cover a tremendous amount of information I find it sometimes too wordy in explaining conditions for the purpose of nursing. Prior to studying nursing, I have a b.S in bio and felt I was reading a biochem book. Gave it a 3 stars because the book does have Great pictures and does make a good reference at times. I believe that the explanation can be a bit simpler for each condition then explained in this text.

Other nursing students in my course of 40 hated the book and supplemented with patho made easy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too many errors!!! Scary! Jan. 23 2013
By Margo D. - Published on Amazon.com
The book is not bad itself, but there are several mistakes throughout the book, which I personally noticed. God knows how many more are there...It is scary that students have been learning a wrong material. The study guide book attached has the same issues. My pathophysiology professor has been done lots of corrections on the material of study guide book content, directing student with her own corrections. This books should be taken off from the shelf and marketing. You are the one who will be treated by nurses and providers taught by the book with errors

3.0 out of 5 stars Adequate but poor by itself July 7 2012
By Sean M - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm about halfway through a course in Pathophysiology that's using this text. It does a fair job of covering the various disorders, etc. but often comes up short in explanations. It will sometimes use clinical terminology that it fails to define anywhere in the book. In some instances one can infer the meaning but in at least a handful of cases even knowing Latin doesn't quite help. I'm forced to supplement it with Google searches just to define some of the terminology it uses. Obviously, the jargon comes with the territory, but I believe it often uses poor grammatical structure and organization which can leave the reader confused. I'm a former English teacher and certain phrasing within the book makes it ambiguous what the authors are referring back to. If properly supplemented by a decent professor, it works. However, on its own I find it lacking. Look elsewhere if you're looking to teach this stuff to yourself. If you must buy it, choose a good instructor if possible.

The instructor I have for this class has us working out of this book constantly. It is a must have in my situation. he organization with in the book is great; however, the Web site that comes with the book (evolve) isn't all that helpful so I do not use it.
