Shout out for my last semester of nursing school!

The same information in the class textbook was presented in this text in a straightforward and easy to read format.

I am currently in my CC nursing class & using this book. I have read 4 chapters & I really like it. We have other reading on the same topics in our Med/Surg book & I find this book much more easier to read. I feel like I comprehend the material much better out of this book as well. There are great resources online through evolve. I really like the open-book tests. It tests your knowledge & makes for a great study tool. I would recommend the book for to help study for a CC nursing class.

Critical care class. It was very helpful Dry at times but lets face it there's not much you can spice up at times. Great at getting to the point and talking about the nursing implications.

Got this for my critical care semester and had to return the first book I received because the pages were falling out of the book after one or two times reading it. I am very careful with my books and after spending $83.00, I would think it would last more than a week. I think they used the same glue that are on post it notes.

Second book I got, lasted 3 weeks and is now just starting to fall apart. The sad part is I like the textbook and information.
Amazon was great with the exchanges. Very efficient.
My issue is with the product which I need for school.

I purchased this textbook at the recommendation of a fellow nursing student when I was struggling with several critical care topics. It proved to be a lifesaver. The same information in the class textbook was presented in this text in a straightforward and easy to read format. I read both this text and the class text to prepare for exams and raised my grade from barely passing to an A. Well worth the price of the book!

I'm an RN student in my last semester of nursing school. This book was required by our instructors (I cannot understand why they didn't pick out a better text for us as they have in the past). I have purchased MANY textbooks thus far in the program, but I really dislike this book. There are WAY better textbooks that make the information much more understandable in a better organized format.

Well, if you're buying this book that means you've made it pretty far into nursing school. I haven't really had a chance to get into the book just yet, but I am very pleased with the fact that this is the smallest nursing school book I've ever had to carry.

I would recommend this book for those interested in general Critical care nursing. It is not a bad or overtly dry read and has the necessary amount of information to supplement many of the Med Surg text books when it comes to specific trauma injuries.

I bought this book for school. It is actually one of the best textbooks I have used, and I've used a lot. Clearly written and easy to understand, also in a nice orderly fashion. If your going into critical care this is also a great tool.
