Format: Hardcover
The book is well illustrated and well linked into case studies for medical students. It appears that the book was focused for a medical students. this can be irritating as pathology and science students use the book, and as much as the case studies are interesting, a more molecular approach occasionally would have made a more dynamic book. The book is wonderful and easy to use, a sensational book on all other points.

Another required textbook. It's not an easy read, but it's required. What else are you going to do? I didn't use mine much.

Great shape and good price! Also shipment was on time :) No complaints really, the CD was included, but it was outdated, but that was not necessary

Although this book is helpful at times, it was only a recommended textbook for my course. The quiz questions at the end of each chapter are helpful, as are the different figures throughout the chapters, but if it weren't for the seller I got it from, it would have been far too expensive.
