I have often been frustrated by "study guides," left with the feeling that I didn't really get value for my money . . . the same can not be said for this study guide. Answers are given at the back, but more important the answers come with rationals that help to truly "OWN" the concept. Buy it or wish you had later.

Format: Hardcover
I am in the 4th semester, almost the end of Nursing, and this book is my most disliked book for Med-Surg 1 and 2. The reason is this: The book is full of abbreviations that keep on rolling and rolling from chapter to chapter: for heart diseases for example it is impossible not to get frustrated when you read the meaning of abbreviation of dozens of abbreviations while reading a chapter. If you don't remember what it stands for later in chapters for heart, you've got to go back and look for it god knows where now. For Neuro, as I am reading it now, we have: ICP, MAP, CPP, TBI, GCS, CBF, etc., For example if you forgot what CBF was, you would simply encounter a sentence "....Transcranial Doppler allows for measurement of CBF velocity", then you go back page by page trying to find out what CBF was for to decipher the sentence( Cerebral Blood Flow).
Not only that, but the book is full of fluff information, old statistics, philosophical dilemmas, controversies, for example if would start to describe a process of how something works, like raising a Head of Bed during intra-cranial pressure (ICP) elevation to decrease this pressure, and then it would say there is controversy because it decreases blood perfusion to the brain, and body constricts periphery to raise the BP and this elevates ICP. So the book would give you controversies like these and lots of theories as to "why things are working that way" and then it would say "it is still debatable.". I am sorry, in nursing NO ONE has enough time to read controversies, debates, studies that are still ongoing and not done, we need to the point information, precise and condensed without fluff! The book is very heavy to hold on your knees if you like to sit on a sofa and study.

This is a great book that is very useful for the begining RN student. It explains everything in detail and shows how things are done. Very useful for quick facts about the diseases and their processes. GREAT BUY!!!

This same book is available in a two-book set. I highly recommend the split version so you don't have to carry one, huge, heavy book around all semester!

This has been my primary reference throughout nursing school, but I had, as advised, bought the two volume set. It was recommended d/t the size/weight, but what I found is that it was inconvenient, as I was constantly flipping from book to book. I sold the two-volume set and re-purchased this one--much better--way faster and more convenient doing research. Love it.

Some of the questions in here are outrageous compared to what I read in the textbook. Stuff that was stated in only a sentence or two in the textbook would have really in depth questions in this study guide. I only use the multiple choice questions. The rest is kind of useless for me because we don't have anything other than multiple choice on our tests in class. A lot of times I don't even bother using this.

I have just started reading this book (7th edition) for class and came across an error that really surprised me on page 536: "Acute viral rhinitis (common cold or acute coryza) is caused by an adenovirus that invades the upper respiratory tract and often accompanies an upper respiratory infection (URI)." No mention is made of any other viruses that cause the common cold. Indeed, there are more than 200 known causes of acute viral rhinitis with the most prevalent being: rhinovirus, coronavirus, respiratory synctial virus, adenovirus, parainfluenza, influenza, enterovirus, metapneumovirus, and other unknown viruses (source: Lancet). I am thinking the authors wanted to highlight the fact that adenoviruses are more likely than some other viruses (e.g., rhinovirus) to lead to complications, but failed to do so before the book was printed and/or a writer that knew nothing about microbiogy just slapped down adenovirus related to the common cold (the most frequent manifestation of the adenovirus is the common cold --but it is not the most frequent virus causing the common cold).

I can't help but wonder what other errors I am going to discover as I continue to read this book --and what errors I won't recognize.

Additionally, as another critic mentioned, the pages are terribly thin.

Overall, I am giving this book a one as I think substantial errors should not be in a textbook, especially one that is in the 7th edition.

Format: Hardcover
This book is okay and okay only. The reason why it is only okay is because it is way too long.This is a required book for my Med Surg 1 and 2 class. I don't have a problem with staying up until 4:00 am in the morning studying for all my classes. However, this book has so much fluff in it that I'm up reading until 4 am for this class only and I don't have time to read for my other classes and this is a daily thing.

If this book didn't have so much fluff and would get to the point, this would have been an excellent book. However since it is so long, this is only an okay book.
