I am currently a nursing student and was in need of an informative but clear anatomy book. This anatomy and physiology book is absolutely excellent. It's not to wordy but gets the point across using diagrams and shortish explanations which suits my style of learning.
Highly recommend this book to nursing or medical students.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book for those studying A&P. It is a 'next step up' from A level going into much more detail of body systems etc. Having said that, it's not as in depth as other works like 'Tortora and Derrickson', but if you're training as a student paramedic or nurse it covers a lot of what you need to know. It is, perhaps more accessable than other A&P books and will get you up to speed ready to delve into more indepth A&P works.

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!

I am currently studying an Access to Health studies course, and this was a suggested book from my biology tutor.
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.

Book came before estimated delivery and in brand new condition- not for me but for my daughter so cannot rate but she says it covers her Access to medical science course well.

I needed this book for a module of a diploma course. The use of colour helps in presenting a subject for which I have otherwise no particular interest.

Ross and Wilson Anatomy and Physiology in Health and Illness with accessible CD Rom.Its colour coded chapter wise and is clearly illustrated in great detail as well as depth and explains the various systems such as the card vascular system, skeletal system, bone tissue in easy to understand language
It also breaks it down in each chapter and explains how each system works as well as functions. There is also a glossary at the back of the book and its written by well known authors who work in the health field.
The accessible CD ROM has also the main book on CD and other extras.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who's studying human biology,nursing,physiotherapy and other health professions at degree level as well as those who are doing any health rated access courses who need to know information on the human body or human anatomy /physiology as its a great resource guide
