This book is very, very large and very, very heavy. I bought the largest book bag on wheels and this book would consume the entire bag after my class binder was put in. The binding broke during my first semester. I agree with the other post. Purchase the 2-volume edition for easier handling.
Osborn is very confusing. I actually ended up buying the Med-Surg book by Lewis because Osborn was so difficult. I found this book to be unorganized, as in a chapter it would jump back & forth between the different subjects materials. The chapters took hours to read, partly because our instructors assigned the entire chapters rather than just the related information. Our instructors switched in the middle of our 4 semester training to the Lewis book because test scores were so low with the students using Osborn. I would not recommend this book to the beginning RN student. Maybe it would be good for the advanced RN student, after you get an understanding of the basics.

Just wanted to write a quick review of the overall satisfaction of this book.

I graduated with my RN back in 2011, and used this book throughout my college experience.

I wrote a very similar review to the 2nd volume, and would suggest getting both the volume 1 and volume 2, instead of both volumes in one book. It will save your back from a lot of pain, and if you only want to study a specific chapter, having the separate volumes is very practical.

The reading is advanced, but is structured in a way that makes it simple to pick and choose the most important and key facts in the chapters so you don't have to spend all too much time reading all the fine print.

I would suggest getting the different books to save you some trouble.
