It starts off with basic biology and chemistry, such as cellular structure and function, and goes on to tissues and such. I found this particuly useful in brushing up on anything from A/AS level and a bit beyond. all relavent to application in veterinary. The rest of the book covers mainly dogs and cats- skeletal, muscular, nervous, urinary, respiratory, endocrine and reproductive systems. And it's easily applicable to to other species...it helped me to learn the names of bones and different planes especially, as the diagarams are well thought out and very eay to follow; and they are often accompanied by x-rays pictures...so you can actually apply them to real-life.
The last few chapters cover exotics, other mammels, reptiles and fish, and horses; covering the same systems but applying them more directly. Again very useful.
At the end of the book is a 'test yourself' section where you can pick from the different chapters and check you know the stuff. Good if you want to check you covered everything.
Overall I found this book very useful for getting a basic grasp on many different topics, and it's been my first port-of-call on anything new. It explains everything clearly and is well thought out in my opinion. Ideal for a first or second year vet student/nurse (and other animal degrees I would imagine too...or if you have an interest but don't want anything too difficult to understand)...and useful if needed to look back in later years (I would imagine). Definetly worth the price, which is really good for a vet book!Read more ›
