1.0 out of 5 stars Not compatible with WP8 Kindel Reader App! 17 Jan 2014
By MartLea

Very hard to see that this edition is not compatible with the Windows Phone 8 reader app when ordering via phone. Download begins but then states a Software Update is required - which is not available for this reader. Download then fails but sync continues to attempt download! Oh dear many emails later Amazon Support finally remove the book from Pending but it still appears in my account purchases even though I have not received it. Pity really I can't comment on the book itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars I did not expect much..... 12 April 2014
Verified Purchase
I did not expect much from a free download but thought I would give it a go.

So glad I did! I am an Access student for Nursing and found this book a huge help for my Human Biology assignment. The amount of information and detail in here has amazed me! You can even create flash cards by subject for revision.

Not sure about using it in my reference list though.....I have passed to link on to my Tutor for clarification.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money! 12 April 2014

Amazing! Has everything I need to know when studying nursing. Explains A&P in great detail. Discusses some pathology, explaining diseases related to the topic at the end of each chapter. The best A&P book I have brought for nursing whilst studying and best of all it is free so you have nothing to lose by buying it. Wish I had brought this earlier.
