1.0 out of 5 stars if you have to throw away $150... July 24, 2006
If you actually buy this book you're paying for the illustrations. Don't waste your time actually reading it, the presentation of the material is ponderous and completely unimaginative. The chapter on immunology is one of the worst I've seen anywhere.

The COVER of the book speaks volumes for its content. I'd be afraid to be seen in public with it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Want to save money? September 8, 2007
This book is incredibly expensive. I've seen it listed for $200+ at some stores. I bought a brand new, shrink-wrapped "international version" for $37 plus $30 shipping (TOTAL $67). I know you're thinking that the shipping was high, but I received the book 36 hours after I ordered it and was thankful! It came with 3 sealed CD's and the online access code. The international version appears to be exactly the same except it is a soft cover and has a orange colored border surrounding that same picture on the cover. Good luck.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Organization and Boring September 24, 2007
My biggest problem with this book lies directly with the fact that teachers use it when you BEGIN learning the basics of anatomy and physiology. Instead of focusing on the basics, this book has a lot of unnecessary "window-dressing". Not only that, but the author could have shortened the explanations; why talk about a topic in 10 pages when it could easily be said in 3?

By going on and on, this book only makes remembering the information more difficult. The book says "Fundamentals", but really it should be saying "Everything-in-Between"! Not to mention the price is horrendous (though it has gotten much better). PLEASE college teachers, if you wish to help your students learn efficiently, use a book that doesn't turn the subject of anatomy and physiology into a bore-and-tedium fest.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the best text available September 3, 2008
I am an instructor in this course, and I really do not favor this textbook. It contains ALOT of information and data, and it is well organized with a ton of helpful diagrams and illustrations, but it is easy to drown in the text without absorbing it because the book does a poor job of explaining the concepts it covers. This text might serve help to a physiologist or physician, but for the individual who is studying to be in other fields of allied health, it is a ton of information that is not well presented. The text is very dense and not very reader friendly. The text does contain great illustrations...however, I believe Marieb's text is a much better book IMO.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the ease of paperback September 16, 2008
Purchased this as the required text for three terms of Anatomy & Physiology. This book served me well. It is a paperback version which is lighter and way easier to handle then the hardcover edition. With all the books we have to tote around as college students, the paperback feature is a huge plus! The bonus dvd is an awesome learning tool. Make sure to watch this invaluable resource and make it a consistent addition to your study ritual. Many times when taking my A&P exams, the visuals of the dvd came to life in my mind which helped me to ace the test. Although I prefer a different author's writing style for A&P (Saladin), as this was the required text for my course, I had to get it and it was overall a good informative read. Again...very happy to get it in paperback. Wish they made all textbooks that way.

I purchased this book NEW and in good faith & because it was the title required for my anatomy class. (from the college bookstore)

The company NEVER made good on their promise to allow me access to use their website. They provided the professor an invalid access code.

I can only have access if I send them MORE money to purchase access.

I ALREADY GAVE THEM 150+ for the NEW text, lab manual, cd's & entry into their website. It feels like I am being SCAMMED although I am pretty sure this is not their intention.

I am 1/3 of the way done w/the book & class & DISSAPPOINTED W/MY PURCHASE.
