5.0 out of 5 stars Great book that's really easy to understand., 22 Oct 2004
This review is from: Anatomy and Physiology for Dummies (Paperback)
This is a great book which I highly recommend. It explains everything in very simple terms making it easy to get your head round. I am a nursing student and used it to help me through my anatomy and physiology exam. It was fantastic for helping me to lay the foundations needed to get to grips with some of the more complicated aspects of a&p. That said it was not as detailed as I would have needed to completely get me through the exam. I found it worked well as a book to read before looking at the more detailed and technical text books which are a lot more daunting.
It uses lots of every day examples to make things easier to understand and remember. For example it likens the negative and positive feedback systems within the body to a thermostat like you might have in your home which will only make changes if the environmental temperature changes.
Makes anatomy & physiology very accessible.

Thank you for the helpful review. I am taking a medical secretarial course at my local college and this book has been recommended as an aid for the medical terminology aspect of the course. After reading your review I will deffinetly be investing in this book. Thanks again.
