Format: Paperback
Marieb's latest edition provides the beginning anatomy student with a readable and informative text. The reading level is best suited to undergraduate students, and the photographs and diagrams stimulate student interest and understanding. Especially useful are the sections on "Developmental Aspects" of anatomy, which includes morphological and physiological changes from embryonic to geriatric stages. While this edition includes updated information since the 1997 edition, some professors and students may prefer the 5th edition (1997) because it is in hardback; the 6th edition is available only in paperback as of this review. Either edition is superior to other texts aimed at similar audiences on the basis of its clarity, readability, and organization.

...and I've got to say, this book is heavy going.
It was certainly my perception -- and seemed to be consensus among many of the students -- that this textbook is mediocre. Several of us in the class were also taking medical terminology in another class; about midway through the class we discovered that each of us had separately taken to using our medical terminology text ("Language of Medicine," Chabner) as our primary text for the A&P class also, because we all found it much more user-friendly and felt we were absorbing a lot more information than we were with this book. (And this subset of the class appeared to be doing considerably better on exams than the rest of the class as a whole.)
If this is the designated text for a class you're taking, you don't have a whole lot of choice (but you might consider buying the Chabner book too, to lower your stress level!); but if you DO have a choice, I wouldn't recommend this book.

The Marieb textbook is a pretty good introduction to anatomy textbook. Obviously everyone has their own tastes and I would emphasize some topics more and de-emphasize others. I would say this book is middle of the pack when it comes to illustrations, review questions, and definitions. The labs that accompany this book are not very good.
