I am taking a graduate level physiology class and this book made it so much easier. The paragraphs are clear with great illustrations. I would recommend this to any college student or someone who is interested in this field.

I bought this edition in looseleaf form for my upper level Animal Phys course. The prof uses the figures straight from the book, so if I don't understand the diagram in class, I can always go back to the text. I use the book as a pre-class read and post-class study guide (along with class notes). The text is easy to read and the diagrams are colorful with clear explanations. I like the looseleaf edition because I can put the chapters I next for each exam into a binder along with my notes, then add / delete chapters & notes as I move forward in the course. In other words, the looseleaf edition saves my aching back from yet another heavy book! A wholly-digital ebook would be even better for me, but I can pass this text along to a relative who will be taking this course in the next year.

Book was in supposedly "good" condition; however, there was a giant slash down the binding that impaired the book's structural integrity...in this state, it would definitely not withstand a semester of any use.

Great condition, great textbook. A little dense, but I love this comparative physiology course I'm taking and it goes along with it perfectly!
