Editorial Reviews

Review

"...packed with excellent and colourful pictures of explaining how the various structures develop and change with time...Basically this is a good choice for someone who likes embryology and wants to get a good mark, not just a pass." Medical Student, University of Nottingham, UK (review of previous edition)

BMA Book Awards 2008 - Highly Commended

"An up-to-date textbook on embryology for medical students with a relevance far beyond that. There is abundant illustration of the text and extensive clinical correlation. An extremely accessible book that has a lot more clinical correlation than its previous editions. It’s a pleasure to use."

By Ahavah on December 27, 2010
Format: Paperback
This was a well-written textbook for medical students. The information was presented in a way that was easy to understand. Sometimes concepts and figures were repeatedly emphasized for certain structures, but I believe that's essential to learning embryology.

Pros:
-Easy to read.
-Structures are frequently identified to allow you to spatially orient yourself.
-End of chapter summaries.
-Practice questions in text.
-Online student consult animations and more practice material.
-The book is available online using the student consult.

Cons:
-The layout of figures was slightly aggravating because I had to flip through multiple pages at times to view structures that I was reading about, thus it was occasionally time consuming to read.

Overall, I really enjoyed this textbook.

The book I confess was surprisingly small in comparison to his anatomy book, however its very easy reading and very complete, I gave him a star less because the stages before fertilization are to short, they lack of a deeper look.

Overall I liked the book, but i found it a bit wordy when describing processes of development. I used it for my Embryo class, but I plan on using High Yield as board prep.

I really like this book. Embryo is a tough subject to grasp....so abstract at times. This book really helps bring it home in a rather simple way.

It's pretty annoying to have to flip five pages to get a corresponding illustration to the text.

Overall a good book. Wish it had more about the first six weeks of human development. It has good illustrations and photos of the developing fetus.

The textbook is well written and has good information. I really did not enjoy the class though, so I don't have many good things to say about it.

This book is a cheap and efficient accessory book to my vertebrate embryology class. It was recommended by our TA and I'm so glad I bought it!
