2.0 out of 5 stars The 11th edition is just fine thank you, June 8, 2011
This review is from: Principles of Human Anatomy (Hardcover)
I just had a chat with a senior Biology professor at my university; turns out that this 12th edition was merely an "obligatory" release. Meaning, the publishers put out the update merely to make more money. The content and layout is virtually identical to the older 11th edition with very few revisions. Frivolous updates to skirt the used-textbook market and push more profit to publishers is what has earned this book a low rating.

In short, waste you're money; go with the 11th edition.

In my experience professors have always said the edition down from the newest book is the same thing. In all subjects. Of coarse, they give this advice the first day of class when half of the class has already spent 200$ on the new edition. Buy 11th edition same thing.
