I am a first year medical student on a problem based course at Liverpool Uni. I was recommended this text from several second-years and above, as most students at Liverpool use this text. It has everything that you need to know for your first year, and has a good foundation for the next four years. Tortora starts off simple before going into more detail to make it easier to understand what you are reading. The diagrams are detailed, with photographs, radiographs and histology included. The textbook has lots of clinical case studies that are integrated with the text which keeps you thinking about how the anatomy and physiology fits in to the rest of the course. A coloured atlas of the human body (lots of bones!) and a CD are also included.

I purchased this for a pre-course reading list and thought that I probably would not understand any of it, but it is great. It assumes no previous knowledge and goes right from the very basics of anatomy through to very complex structures and details. Each chapter is well layed out and relates stuff to medical problems making sections of the book such as cells and cell chemistry a lot more interesting. Each chapter has an end summary and quiz, as well as tests on one of the accompanying CD-Roms. For someone as lazy as me to get through this on my own and understand it, it has to be a great book and I would recommend it to any medical/ nursing/ allied healthcare students.

I bought this book to help me on my radiotherapy degree and without it I can honestly say I wouldn't have gotten through any of my anatomy assignments or exams. It covers everything you could possibly need to know about the anatomy and physiology of the human body and explains everything in a clear, consise manner. A must for any anatomy student.

First off, I like this book and I use it regularly for basic revision of a topic. However, its limitations can quickly become apparent. If you're just interested in physiology and anatomy as a "cram" subject that just has to be learned by heart (pardon the pun) then this is the book for you. As a medical or dental student you'll get through your exams if you know most of the stuff in this book.
If on the other hand you are like me and find it really difficult to learn by rote and can only remember stuff well if you understand the "hows" and "whys" of the topic then you may find this book incredibly frustrating. It is presented in a way that is perhaps more appropriate for an A-level style of learning. There is nothing here to encourage the reader to think about or around the subject. Each piece of information is presented as a dry fact, including those for which the evidence is scant or contradictory. To make it even worse, there isn't a single reference for further reading or to back up any of their dubious statements. Someone ought to sit down with the authors and explain to them the concept of Evidence Based Medicine because they've obviously never heard of it!

This was recommended A & P book for my course so bought it without looking around for alternative. Bit of a lump but the CD was invaluable for revision (labelling bones, muscles, etc.,) website access was excellent for exam type questions. One benefit is reference to homeostatis throughout entire book which was key topic of my course. In all, does what it says on the tin.

I was first advised to purchase Tortora & Grabowski when I first began my Nurse Training. At first, I thought that the lecturer must have been joking if she thought I'd understand anything of anatomy / physiology, but that's where Tortora and Garbowski came to the rescue. The text is a reliable, detailed and dare I say interesting resource. It can be utilised by any level of understanding, be it novice or otherwise. Tortora and Grabowski seem to understand that their readers / students may not have Biology degrees or any previous knowledge, and begin each explanation from the very beginning, progressing through to the finer details. This could be probelmatic though, as for example, I found, finding it difficult to know where I would need to "stop" with a particular section, as ALL levels of understanding are explored. All in all though, without doubt, an invaluable resource.

This book is invaluable, it introduces the most complicated topics in an unambiguous way; it doesn't presume that you have years of medical education behind you. The layout is clear and explains the basics of topics well before moving on to the more complex aspects of the topics. Having almost completed my first year, I would say that this book has been the one that I have most used. When reading reviews before starting my degree last year, I remember being daunted by all the conflicting reviews of books, but I can say that my opinion of this book is shared by the majority of my cohort and the years above us.

Wasn't sure i had bought the correct text as initially it looked quite daunting, however it has all the information that anyone could require and more. It has fantastic diagrams and the cd rom is great. I would advise anyone who is studying any biology subject to give it a whirl!
