1.0 out of 5 stars No answers for problems for either book. September 12, 2012
By Forest
Let me start off by saying save yourself whatever the cost of this book is and buy the 9th edition. It's the exact same book and nearly 100% identical context as far my nursing class can tell. As of writing this, our class is 1/2 way through and there hasn't been any problems for the people using the old edition. In fact they actually have some added benefits we don't!

The 9th edition is better because it comes with the answers to the problems at the end of the chapters and the answers in the workbook. So if you're like me, reading your material and trying to test yourself to see if you grasp these concepts, having the answers would be greatly beneficial. However upon contacting the publisher, they told me it wasn't available to students. Our instructor is a busy women and she shouldn't be burned any further to call these clowns because they won't give us the answers to the material we paid for. I get the reason behind this, but seriously I would never recommend this book based on that right there. Our teacher is going to get us the answers, because she feels its ridiculous as well.

2.0 out of 5 stars An actual review on the book... December 16, 2013
By gracie
Ehhh it's OK. I know this is still a rampant problem in all healthcare fields due to the ridiculous religious ties no one can seem to cut, HOWEVER, it is 2013, almost 2014, and I think the illusion that homosexuals seem to carry these diseases such as AIDS and hepatitis needs to stop, and this book caters to the myth that they are somehow magically connected. I also don't like that at times you need to supplement this book with a med/surg resource as this book is 950 pounds. They do seem to puff up words and repeat the same information a few times, such as saying diseases of the intestine instead of saying intestinal diseases. They also (as I said) get pretty repetitive just like I just did. I feel like if the repetition and word-bloating was cut out the book would be much smaller and have room for much more information.

The book is much easier to read than some others had been.
It's almost dumbed down, like the repetition and word-bloating are there simply to help people with cognitive issues to read the book.

I don't look forward to the next edition, however, as apparently one of the nurses who will be in on writing it is someone associated with my school... so maybe this version isn't so bad...

1.0 out of 5 stars very troublesome to read on kindle July 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I hate the kindle version. There is no table of contents on the menu bar, which makes navigating extremely troublesome. Also table of contents should be more detailed.

5.0 out of 5 stars basic nursing text September 30, 2008
I had an 8th edition of this book. This text is more thorough and

illustrative. I would highly recommend this edition to anyone

interested in a basic nursing textbook. This text includes everything

that I need for a review of nursing fundamentals.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wordy, poorly edited textbook
This book is overly, unnecessarily wordy. GET TO THE POINT. If you could EDIT the text, the 1,875 page textbook could likely be shortened by at least 25%. Read more
