As a student nurse I am always looking for ways to enhance my learning and this book is excellent for this. The book is divided into chapters on each of the human body systems and uses several different methods of testing, such as true or false questions, fill in the blanks, and multiple choice. The answers provided at the end of each chapter expand on the correct answer to enhance your knowledge.
I found that I knew some of the answers already and this boosted my confidence no end, as we students often feel we will never know enough! However there were quite a few questions which really challenged me and I feel after only a couple of goes at the book that I have learned something. The detailed answers also added to the information which I already knew and put the information into context for me.
The chapters are fairly short and you could have a go at one of them when you have a spare half hour which is really helpful when you are trying to balance assignments with placements and find it difficult to approach any additional learning. These bite-size chapters will be extremely useful if you need to revise pathophysiology for an exam, or when preparing for a particular placement.
Overall I would say this book would make an excellent investment for a student at any stage in their course.
