This book actually sets up the information in a logical order, starts at the beginning and progresses in a systematic fashion to the end. It doesn't jump around like professors and other books like to do. It Explains things simply and concisely and reintroduces previously learned knowledge all in an interactive style to keep you engaged and thinking.
Another thing I like about this book is that the figures referred to in the text are on the same page as the text referring to them, not five pages ahead or behind.
In short, this book is saving my butt in Neuroanatomy.
There are some errors in the text, due to it being a first edition. But they're usually minimal and if you're going along with everything you can spot them no problem.
I WISH they had a programmed learning tool for anatomy and pharm - my other bad subjects that require only memorization.
Another problem: unlike the paper version of this book, the answers are all consolidated together at the end of the chapter rather than provided after every few questions, making it difficult to go back and forth to check your answers as you go along. (Try it on a kindle app; it gets very annoying after a few chapters.) Regular feedback is key to working your way through the questions, so lumping all the answers at the end of each chapter compromises the effectiveness of this book as a learning tool.
Because of the way the kindle app works, questions were routinely cut off from their diagrams, requiring you to to flip back and forth to see both the question and relevant diagram. Again, this gets tedious very quickly, and it's a problem the authors should have foreseen when adapting this book to the kindle format.
After two weeks, I gave up on using the kindle book and just switched to the paper version. The only advantage of the kindle version over the paper version is that you can search for specific terms in the kindle version, but keep in mind, too, that the searches are not exhaustive since they will not include text given in diagrams or images. Save your money and just buy the paper version.
