This book has poor wording and it is also a difficult read.
med student
If you are taking a physiology course, you likely have enough to worry about- you don't need to worry about whether the information you are reading is correct.
MD Student
This book was a waste of money but it's required for school so I had to purchase.

I am a current medical student at the University of Connecticut who has been forced to use Berne and Levy to study physiology over the course of the year. While Dr. Koeppen ranks among one of the best professors whom I have ever had, unfortunately, his textbook is one of the worst. It is riddled with a shocking number of errors. These are not your typical run-of-the-mill omissions of "the" or "as," but incorrectly printed EQUATIONS and DESCRIPTIONS. While we were warned about many of these errors, several slipped past the detection of our professors. For example, in the Respiratory Chapter, the entire medical school class memorized an incorrect relationship for spirometry because it was incorrectly stated in the chapter. If at all possible, use an alternative reference for your physiology course. If you are taking a physiology course, you likely have enough to worry about- you don't need to worry about whether the information you are reading is correct.

I don't recommend this book There are several typos and index problems. Content could be stated better and didn't flow well. I found that researching the internet gave better explanations. This book was a waste of money but it's required for school so I had to purchase.

This book has poor wording and it is also a difficult read. The text is wordy and they cannot logically get their points across. To make matters worse, its text and diagrams are riddled with errors. I compared it to older editions and the words are nearly the same so they have not invested enough time/money into fixing this horrible text. Just think about it-six editions later is still has wrong equations and diagrams.

Format: Hardcover
I've been reading the Berne and Levy physiology 6th edition (NOT the updated edition) and think it was excellent! When this updated version came out in Denmark a lot of our teachers actually recommended not to buy it but to stick with the old one. I know it's kind of silly to write this review since I haven't read this new edition, but I just wanted to recommend the old 6th edition (2008). AND, since I read a lot of you recommending Guyton I just wanted to add this little story: My study buddy actually started out with Guyton but she got so confused from all the details she ended up not recalling a single thing when she was done. So to all the med. students out there I would definitely recommend Berne and Levy for a concise, easy and a LOT quicker than Guyton way to learn the basics (and more than enough) subjects of human physiology. Good reading to you all:)

Don't have a lot to say except that the writing is well done, the charts really explain the material well and allow for a quick review down the line, and the clinical correlations on nearly every page help solidify the information with common things we will see in the future. Great book all around, and I recommend it to any medical student that is considering it. WORTH THE MONEY.
