Highly recommend this book to nursing or medical students.
BEWARE! I wanted this A&P book for my kindle so I could carry it around with me on placement and dip into it during those times when you can fit in a bit of study. When I originally went to the amazon store to look for this book the page showing the kindle version of Ross and Wilson included the following information...
*Please note that this version is the eBook only and does not include the
printed textbook. Alternatively, you can buy the Text and Evolve eBooks
Package (which gives you the printed book plus the eBook).
Maybe its me, but this text makes it sound like you can pay the extra and get a printed copy of the book plus a kindle compatible version ebook. IT DOES NOT.You get the printed copy and the downloadable ebook but the ebook is NOT compatible with kindle. If you want the kindle compatible version read the ad carefully and make sure you are getting what you want. Don't make the mistake of paying more to get the printed copy as well only to find the ebook is a different version from the kindle one. (Rant over)
That said, Ross & wilson is a great book - buy it and enjoy!
What can i say it is great, an easy format to follow and understand. Great digrams to ease your understanding, and i hope this will take me through to uni.
There are some amazing photos in too and the book is linked in with the website where you can have a bit more interactive learning.
Its bright and colourful which, if you're having a less motivated revision day (which happens to us all), makes it very easy to read. It is full of diagrams and images to back up the text and enhance knowledge further. The index is good, and the book well structured. Each section describes the A&P and at the end of each chapter illnesses affecting that system are covered which I have found a valuable source of knowledge. Aswell as being useful for A&P modules, I have also used it to enhance knowledge of conditions encountered on placement.
The only possible negative is that the book doesn't go into enough detail to be of use on its own for essay exam questions, and I have found that I needed to supplement it with a more detailed textbook. But this is one book definitely worth investing in, especially if you need refreshing on your human biology or prefer something a bit lighter to read. I wouldn't be without it now, and I'm sure that it will serve me as well in my third year as it did in my first.
