4.0 out of 5 stars Anatomy & Physiology 25 July 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
As a nursing student I have found this book very useful for explaining diseases and how different parts of the body work. It explains each system of the body separately, explains what diseases can occur and then simply explains what the diseases are. Does not go too deep into the biochemistry side and is very good for people getting to grips with overall human physiology.
However, it may be too basic for some, but is great as a foundation text.

By Mr M
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I brought this book on the recomendation of my course tutors and it did not dissapoint. This book enabled to me to get consistently high pass marks in my exams and I cannot recommend it enough.
The information contained went a lot deeper in to the subject than I needed.
If you are doing any type of medical or medically associtaed course then I suggest that you buy this book now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comments from a tutor 4 Nov 2004
By Lyn
Format:Paperback
I am a teacher of Anatomy, Physiology and Holistic Massage and I recommend this book to my students. It contains a little more informattion than students need for level 3 ITEC A & P but this is a good thing! The explanations, illustrations and diagrams are presented in a clear and consise manner making learning easier. I only wish it came on CD rom! It is well worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant for those not too hot on biology! 1 Oct 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I am a student nurse, I've just started the diploma course in Derby. At senior school it took me so long all the time to get to grips with many issues in biology lessons and I always needed things explaining so much simpler to me!! (I think my science teacher got quite fed up of me in the end actually!!) So when I began this course I was terrified of how I was going to keep up with all the 'big names' used for parts of the anatomy! Then I heard of Ross and Wilsons book about Anatomy and Phisiology, it was recommended to me by a biology lecturer who sympathised with me, she said it was a brilliant book for those who worry about biology and was so simple to understand. So there we go, I bought it and could now tell you anything you need to know about the Cardivascular System (makes me sound clever doesn't it!!!). It's fab and I would recommend it for those of you who aren't too hot on biology. It's perhaps too simple for those clever biologists but is definitely brill for others not too good at it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anatomy and Physiology Made Easy 31 May 2008
Format:Paperback
I've owned this book since my first year of nurse training in 1998. Ten years later and having been qualified for 7 years, it's still in regular use. I recently did my Acute Care Foundation Course for emergency nursing, and out it came yet again. It's easy to understand and logical. Each body system is covered separately, starting with the biology theory and moving on to talk about diseases which can affect that particular system. For anyone who wants to learn about human biology who doesn't like jargon and wants things explained to them in plain English, this book is essential.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential for begginners to nursing 18 Mar 2005
By "kjj81"
Format:Paperback
Ross and Wilson Anatomy and Physiology in Health and Illness is easy to follow, uses simple language and presents clear diagrams. It is essential for getting to grips with the fundimental basics of anatomy and physiology. This text is a must for nursing students as many diploma courses recommend its use for self directed study.
