the basics, made easy
on July 30, 2011
i'm a full time mom and nursing student, i ordered this book to review in between my first and second year of an associates rn program. i never EVER write reviews for products but i'm really pleased with this book. it's incredibly easy to read and it's helped to reinforce the basics of med-surg nursing. i would recommend this book to anyone looking to review, anyone who is new to nursing or anyone who is struggling in nursing school. this book may not help you ace your test, but it will definitely help you pass. my favorite feature of the book are the "memory joggers" which are little tips to help you memorize concepts. for instance, when explaining the difference between inter- and intra-cellular they remind you that intracellular means inside the cell, just like an intravenous catheter goes inside the vein, whereas intercellular means between the cells like an interstate road that travels between several states.
