I would suggest that students who wish to get the most from their study of A&P combine this attractive newcomer with the 'Great Ways' wider range of study tips, as together they are likely to prove the new 'gold standard' for the study of this subject area.
Perhaps some of the best things about the book would be the way the authors have summed up sections of the book, for example inflammation, into a list of bullet points, making it a good deal easier to remember signs and symptoms, before then moving on to look at diseases that cause inflammation.
All in all, I've found this book interesting and informative, and will be reading it from cover to cover in the near future as a very useful way to brush up on anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology.
There is a companion website which can be used to augment what is learned with further tests.
I would recommend it to nursing and physiology students, it's also useful as revision and to look up things quickly when teaching!
As far as the content of the book itself is concerned, although I am not a student nurse I have attended many medical courses up to and above ambulance technician level, and the information in this book is certainly of a depth to cover most if not all of the knowledge needed on the course. I have even recommended that our training department replace our current books with this volume.
Overall this is a very well written book aimed at the right level.
