As with previously reviewed `Crash course' books, these texts are written for students by students, as such the understanding of the subject matter is made much easier due to the author considering your current knowledge is null and void!

The format of these books is logical, concise and very easy to follow. Starting with chapter objectives you are taken through a logical approach to learning, each chapter further supports its text with the use of highlighted key points and at the end of the book there are both short answer and multiple choice questions to further concrete your learning - don't worry the answers ARE provided!

What I like the most about how these books are designed is that you begin a topic eg `chapter 1.1 - overview of the endocrine system' you have detailed its role, the hormones produced and secretion, the `organisation' of the system i.e - its main components (pituitary, hypothalamus etc), then hormone receptors and how this relates to the nervous and endocrine systems. Where relating to anatomy e.g the adrenal glands, your chapter details fundamental anatomy, then development, microstructure, hormones and most importantly the disorders.

This book is divided into two parts, with the latter being the clinical assessment, this discusses key questions that should be considered when conducting the history, detailing also key examinations and investigations that should be considered.

3.0 out of 5 stars contains mistakes 12 Feb 2010
By Fedja
the crash course series are amazing. BUT they contain many mistakes, were they made in a hurry? I still recommend it, but advise readers to stay awake and be critical of what they read. If something doesn't make sense, check it on wikipedia and decide for yourself. The kind of mistakes they make are saying 'increased' when they mean 'decreased'. This is usually quite clear from the context, but it does create confusion...

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality 11 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ordered this book after having bought others in the series. Very disappointed in the quality- black and white pages that look like photocopies, book was damaged on arrival and binding is not the normal standard of the other books
