I really like this book, because it provides exactly what it says: the big picture for physiology. I find it very student friendly and it got me through physiology in medical school just fine. If you want to go in depth, this is probably not enough for you. The chapters have great clinical correlates for every main concept. It also has great graphics and empty space for your notes. Would highly recommend it! Good refresher for Step 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great physiology review book! December 19, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I highly recommend this physiology review book! It is well written, easy to follow, and has high quality images and illustration. I used it to augment my physiology textbook in my 1st year of med school, and as a review source in my 2nd year for nearly every module. The chapters are condensed with high yield information and short clinical vignettes. I have several physio review books; I like this one the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent to the point book. January 8, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's an amazing physiology. Uses clear pictures and diagrams. And only gets down to the basic and important topics for each topic.

It even has clinical associations. I found this book better than Costanzo frankly.
