A good investment,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Principles of Anatomy and Physiology International Student Version (2 Volume Set) (Isv 13th Edition) (Paperback)
I'm a first year radiography student and I bought this book because I felt that I needed to supplement the two other anatomy and physiology books (Moore & Daly - anatomy, Pocock - Physiology) that I purchased as part of my uni reading list. I am delighted with Tortora. The atlas is very useful as a quick reference and I appreciate the style of writing in the textbooks - it is much more reader friendly as it explains things more clearly that the other books on my list.
The diagrams are very good also although some of them do lack the detail of the diagrams in Pocock and Moore and Daly. I like that the content is split into 2 volumes - saves me a lot of backache!!
Please note that I am not in anyway saying that Moore & Daly and Pocock are insufficient books. I just benefit from the writing style of Tortora.
Some of my classmates use Tortora alone and are very happy with it as an all-rounder; I just like to have a variety.
