BEWARE! I wanted this A&P book for my kindle so I could carry it around with me on placement and dip into it during those times when you can fit in a bit of study. When I originally went to the amazon store to look for this book the page showing the kindle version of Ross and Wilson included the following information...
*Please note that this version is the eBook only and does not include the
printed textbook. Alternatively, you can buy the Text and Evolve eBooks
Package (which gives you the printed book plus the eBook).
Maybe its me, but this text makes it sound like you can pay the extra and get a printed copy of the book plus a kindle compatible version ebook. IT DOES NOT.You get the printed copy and the downloadable ebook but the ebook is NOT compatible with kindle. If you want the kindle compatible version read the ad carefully and make sure you are getting what you want. Don't make the mistake of paying more to get the printed copy as well only to find the ebook is a different version from the kindle one. (Rant over)
That said, Ross & wilson is a great book - buy it and enjoy!
Highly recommend this book to nursing or medical students.
The end of chapter detail on illnesses is useful and interesting, as it applies the principles learned in the preceeding chapter to real-life dysfunction.
I don't really rate the web-access part though. I did try looking at it but I would say there's far more useful info on youtube from the specialist channels.
It also breaks it down in each chapter and explains how each system works as well as functions. There is also a glossary at the back of the book and its written by well known authors who work in the health field.
The accessible CD ROM has also the main book on CD and other extras.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who's studying human biology,nursing,physiotherapy and other health professions at degree level as well as those who are doing any health rated access courses who need to know information on the human body or human anatomy /physiology as its a great resource guide

I believe it has useful information in it to reference.I would recommend this book to anyone doing nursing.
I'm being biased here but if you are a nursing student then this is the book for you. It's easy to understand and has a lot of illustrations in it for the more visual learner... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
