As a first year dental student, following the basic medical science curriculum at Liverpool, I have found this book to be an invaluable resource, yes it has its inaccuracies in places and perhaps isn't as detailed as core texts on anatomy and physiology but for any first year dental or medical student this book is pitched at exactly the right level. I would advise anyone who uses this book to also use a core anatomy text alongside it as at times it does lack information with regards to the relationships between organs and vessels, giving you the anatomy of the structures themselves but not really demonstrating their orientation to surrounding tissues. This book provides, as mentioned, an invaluable resource for any first year dental or medical student, providing information on the anatomy, physiology, histology and embryology of all the systems.
