Lives up to the high standard set by the previous editions & moves on from them. Now in two volumes which means that it is lighter & easier to use. The free extra book is also a very useful resource. I would highly recommend this to any Paramedic students out there.

This is a great, straightforward and easy to read textbook. It is not as heavy-going as some that are recommended on our medical course, but I have found it deep enough to get through Stage 1 medicine.

It integrates real labelled cadaver pictures with diagrams, photos and text in an interesting, manageable way. Even difficult concepts are well explained and this has become my first port of call when learning anything new. It is so beneficial to have the anatomy given alongside the physiology, enhancing understanding of structure-function relationships without having to skip between textbooks.

There are a couple of mistakes in the text I've come across (and been confused by)- which is why I'm saying almost perfect, but this is a fantastic book to use and surprisingly not that boring!

I am currently doing my Access to Nursing Diploma and this book came highly recommended from my Biology tutor as being one of the best investments which will follow us onto university next year and he's not wrong. I am finding it a real help whilst I'm working on my first assignment and the detail and colour diagrams are amazing. Without a doubt this is well worth the investment if you're considering going into Biology or any other medical field, it's money you will not waste!

I am a first year Pharmacy student and would recommend this highly to anyone doing a medical and health related course. The great thing about this book is it can simplify complex and detailed concepts into an easy to read format. There are many tables and diagrams of which the majority are helpful. It appears that quite a lot of thought has been put into the making and presentation of the book. It is also presented in a way which makes it interesting rather than being mundane like some textbooks. A book set worth buying.

I'm a first year studying Physiotherapy, this text book covers almost all anatomy, neurology and biomechanics needed and is very useful for the course, for its price the topics covered and in the depth they are this is an appsolute bargain and i would recommend to anyone doing Physiotherapy as a degree, I also found amazon to be the cheapest seller at the time.

bought it because it is an essential read for my course.
I really like the layout and the content.
Haven't tried the online resources yet.
But overall I highly recommend this book.

This is an excellent book which covers every aspect of human Anatomy and Physiology in a way which is comprehendable. Some aspects I found necessary to re-read over a few times but was pleasantly surprised that some of the subject matters that I had previously thought looked daunting, are very well explained and understandable with a bit of repetition. The illustrations are particularly good with highly detailed and colourful drawings and also fascinating photographic imaging. The whole concept and design of the book and the many features and questionaires etc has been very well thought out and good to know that both the editors have taken students requests and ideas into consideration when designing and updating the book. I particularly like the I-pod facility which allows you do download all the relevant information so that you can 'walk and learn' at the same time!

This book is the best book to use in the earlier years of a Medical degree, or any other Human Biology course. Doesn't overwhelm you with excessive details but gives you just enough to get a clear overview of pretty much everything you need to know.

The two volume set is good if you need to carry the book around with you. As others have mentioned, there are a few mistakes in the text (the most major of these I remember was in a table showing the spinal tracts) but nothing you wouldn't spot ;)
