Doesn't go into an awful lot of depth about conditions
on 8 October 2016
I bought this book as I'm in my third year of nursing and it was recommended by our lecturers for our science exam which is mainly on pathophysiology of different conditions. Although it has a lot of information about a wide variety of conditions and diseases, I feel that it doesn't go into an awful lot of depth with the pathophysiology. Yes it is great for learning about the physiology, but to answer our questions for our exams it doesn't go into enough depth. For example one of my questions may be on DKA but the book only contains one small paragraph on the 'pathophysiology', if you could even call it that, its more like a definition of DKA and doesn't explain the actual process. I will keep the book as it will be helpful in the future when I become qualified to read up on things that I haven't come across before, but for my revision purposes it just doesn't have enough.
