There are numerous pathophysiology books out there, like Robbin's and others that I have a hard time finding a right placement for this unorganized,poorly written, unequally focused, and not goal-oriented book. It looks like authors collected bunch of data and articles about a subject they assigned to write about, piled it in no fashion or orginazation, without pursuing a goal or point toward their readers and printed it as a book. I think most of it is due to lack of patient care experince by those RN's or FNP's writing those material, otherwise they would be able distinguish what is clinically or medically importnat and what is not, because how you can get 2 pages on Iron Deficiency Anemia and 6 pages on Siderblastic Anemia? Remember It's all about the better choice!

I had to purchase this for a class in my Master's program. It is full of information, reading is a bit heavy, but it is a great resource. I will use this for many years.

This text is fantastic. It's easy to understand and read. I wouldn't purchase the online package. It wasn't very helpful.

The book is carelessly put together without any regard for accuracy or quality. Several spelling an grammar mistakes should have been easily caught by a spellcheck function. This book is simply a money-making attempt by this textbook producer, not an authoritative and accurate source of knowledge. Here is a list of just a few of the errors that are in the book.

Page 98 - Figure 3-1 and 3-2 spell interstitial as "intestitial"
Page 171 - Table 5-3 spells Concordance as "Concor dance"
Page 439 - Wilms tumor is spelled "Wilms timor"
Page 468 - Cranial nerves III, XI, and XII are incorrectly labeled as sensory
Page 468 - Cranial nerve IX is incorrectly labeled as originating from the midbrain
Page 557 - Intracranial pressure reported as 60 to 180 cm H2O (should be mm H2O)
Page 572 - Hypokinesia is spelled "hypoakinesia"
Page 647 - Schizophrenia is spelled "schzophrenia"
Page 669 - Structural is spelled "sturctural"
Page 707 - States GnRH stimulates GH (should be GHRH)
Page 708 - Table 20-6 says MSH targets anterior pituitary (MSH targets melanocytes)
Page 768 - Says Bartter syndrome symptom is metabolic acidosis (should be metabolic alkalosis)
Page 1038 - States that osteoclasts reabsorb bone (should be resorb)
Page 1068 - Sentence "...after an miscarriage."
Page 1268 - States that arterial CO2 is PaO2 (should be PaCO2)
Page 1270 - Under respiratory failure PaO3 is used instead of PaO2 (PaO3 does not exist)

I would recommend this product. The book is educaitonal, but it is large. Provides adeqaute and understandable information on the body and diseases. There is also easy access to all the information with coded indexes available within the book. It has helped me with my education greatly.

While Patho isn't my favorite class the book arrived quickly and had decent photos. The supplemental Elsevier's is helpful (that is what the access code is for). If you want to access Elsevier's you will need a new book as the access code is only useful once.

As easy to read as a text of this type can be. Consistent pattern for discussing diseases. Separate chapters for normal vs abnormal so you can focus on one then the other. The online companion is decent, but the self study modules generally only test the patho.

Don't be afraid of it's size; very well organized. The information is presented clearly and includes a lot of diagrams. The online test follow the text very well.
