I Am on chapter 4 of this book and I have read many biology books. I find the authors are very wordy and they tend to use the words like "respectively "and referring to"the latter" quite often which causes you to have to stop reading, back up and realize which item the author said last. The authors also refer to tables in other chapters which is annoying because if I am in an entirely different chapter, I don't want to have to go back 20 pages to see a table that has 2 sentences on it. Also, The images and diagrams are not impressive. Many lack terms and features of what the text is saying. Luckily I have covered most of this information before so I could fill in the blanks myself, if this was my first Physiology book I can imagine being very confused.

Before you read my review, you must know that the course I took that this book was taught by the professor who wrote the book, Dr. Widmaier himself!

The book is well-written, and easy to understand. It has a clear, and concise structure, that is very very readable. Other textbooks often have run-on sentences that are difficult to follow. Also, the book is written in a vernacular that is appropriate for the level for which it is intended.

I think that this book's diagrams are particularly well-done. Studying the diagrams, as recommended by the instructor, are immensely helpful in gaining a good understanding of the concepts. Additionally, the case studies are helpful, as well as very very interesting! The sections of the book about diseases and treatments for them are very helpful in reinforcing the concepts, and are very interesting.

As a pre-med, this book is great. This is perhaps the best textbook I have had in college. I can definitely see why they use it in medical schools as well, and I can see why it is so well-respected. Dr. Widmaier himself is a very intelligent, witty, and well-spoken man. The great quality of this book reflects the great quality of the man himself.

I highly recommend this book, and I myself am keeping it for medical school.

I love the explanations in this text, very easy to understand. Great graphics, good chapter summaries and study questions. My favorite are the clinical correlates at the end of chapter. This book is a keeper.

This book was required for my physiology classes, and I used it thoroughly to prep for the exams. Also, I used this book to prep for the bio section of the MCAT-- super helpful, scored a 14 in the actual bio section. If you understand this book well, you will likely do well on the physiology section of the bio section of the MCAT.

Its a text book so what can I say! The shipping was incredibly fast and it was packaged well. The contents of this paperback textbook was exactly like that of the hardcover book. I needed it for a 300 level physiology course, I got an 'A'. So all is well! I recommend this book and this seller to anyone! 5 stars :)

I find this book really helpful. Although you need to have fresh memories about biology, chemistry to understand to book properly.

Vander's Human Physiology is a stand out in its field. It provides the best process-oriented descriptions of the functions of life. While much more needs to be said about the nature and structure of metabolic pathways in executing life functions, Vander's provides the best model-based approach for an introductory book.

I ordered this book, but found out it was out of stock a week later. Money was easily and quickly refunded. Just an inconvenience.
