Top customer reviews
The anatomy (includes brillaint diagrams and photos of cadavers) and physiology is clearly explained and if used with other texts you should have no problems in getting the top grades.
A great book, but disappointing CD (hence the 4 stars).
My favourite bit is the colourful see through acetate pull out body progressively revealing the different anatomical layers of the body as you flick the pages
I think it is good value for money in comparison to Tortora in that it comes with a lot of added freebies, like evolve online and the atlas
By far it covers most of the science material required for 1st year medicine making it the ultimate lazy mans guide to 1st year- just add beer!
EDIT: I've found the problem - the same product description comes up for both the actual book, and the instructor's guide. This is the fault of Amazon, not the author, and I'll change the low rating so as not to put people off buying the book, but please be careful! This is the one I purchased by mistake: Anatomy and Physiology: Instructors Resource to Accompany Lab Manual
