Daunting textbook, FULL of so much information your head will spin. It's a love-hate relationship. If weight is any indicator, this 324 pounder is the BIBLE of Med Surg Nursing. ...But seriously, the interactive capacity of this textbook - with its CD and online access is a full complement to what your program wants you to know. Take advantage of the study guides, end of chapter questions, beginning of chapter goals/objectives and online tests and you'll be fully prepared for your tests and clinicals.*** ***your mileage may vary!!!

In terms of content, Elsevier is great. However, they have neglected the most important tool for students - providing a generous supply of NCLEX practice test questions for each chapter. This is vital to pass the class AND the NCLEX. The Elsevier questions are too few, not customizable by chapter, and they are not NCLEX rationales. Elsevier could fix this problem quickly by reworking their online practice test format. Then, I would change this review from 1 star to 4! Until this happens, choose another publisher if you want your students to pass their class or the NCLEX.

Terrible text book. i used this for med-surg in a 2 year RN program. i rarely write reviews, but in this case i feel i have to warn new student nurses. NOT user/student friendly in the least. this is the type of book that requires A LOT of time being spent reading and re-reading in order to grasp the simplest concepts. NOT FOR BEGINNERS. I found it to be exceedingly torturous to read. unnecessarily dry, verbose, repetitive, and redundant. It seems as if the authors deliberately set out to prove what a VAST and intricate knowledge of the the human body they possess, and presented the information in a cryptic, hard to decipher manner. NOT a book for beginning nurses. TOO much pathophysiology (YES, it IS INDEED possible to overstress the minutiae of pathophysiology), presented in a disorganized and painfully BORING way. OVERWHELMING. let me add that i'm not shy when it comes to an intellectual or academic challenge. my A&P text book (Ken Saladin) was just as detailed, but it was a JOY to read!!! so well written and engaging. although all the proper scientific terminology was employed, in general the text was straightforward and in PLAIN ENGLISH. no incessant repetition because it wasn't needed. the concepts were presented such that i understood them on the first reading. shame on my nursing program for choosing this book and making our lives so much more difficult than was necessary.

I generally hate my textbooks but this one has a stronger hate. It is incredibly wordy and does not present information in an easy to learn manner. I use the reviews and rationales, the sucess series, and other guides over this book and was still able to attain a 97% in my classes. I know you have to buy it because the school requires it but this book was a bust for me.

For all the nursing students who have struggled with issues related to ebooks for class such as pageburst by evolve etc... This book is a lifesaver for students studying medical-surgical nursing. Easy to find what you are studying. Tables are easily found and readable. Love this book! -and mine did come as a single book instead of 2 different books as some other people mentioned earlier... BUT even if it had been two books that is still better than Ebooks! It improved my average test scores or 78-84 to 86-94! Good luck to everyone pursuing a career in the medical field!
