I found this book a good concise study guide that I could take to the gym or when I'm somewhere waiting and have a couple of extra minutes to study. It breaks down the A&P chapters to simple terms which can finally be the lightbulb you're looking for when dealing with complicated A&P topics. I got an "A" in my class, but more credit goes to the wonderful study guides [Anatomy and Physiology Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers with Explanations by Patrick Leonardi Volume 1 & 2]. Leonardi's study guides, written by an actual professor, are chock full of questions and answers to each A&P chapter, including all of the difficult concepts. It was great because I could mess up taking his tests and know that I needed to study that area further, and not make my mistakes on the real test!! It is an invaluable guide, and while the Cliffs Quick Review is a good primer, to get really in depth, get the Leonardi books!! You won't regret it!!

I bought this book for my Anatomy and Physiology class. For those who are studying or have been studied this class, you know how painful it is having to memorize every single structures and substructures of anything in a human body. Well, if you have this book then at least you don't have a bad time anymore because it does the classification for you already.
To me, the materials that are covered in the A&P Cliffs Quick review is sufficiently enough for you to get a decent grade (from B to A) if you attend lectures, take notes, read your book and finally use it as a cramming tool before the exam.
Unlike other review books which tend to put too much or too little information (I have another review book from Schaum's that does not help a lot), this one actually has the exact information that my A&P professor covered in class. So now I allow myself to relax if I cannot write down everything my professor says in class.
One more cool thing about this Cliff review book that's worth your money is the author listed some websites that have review materials (free and paid) so that you can log on and challenge yourself.
I highly reccommend the Cliffs Quick Review notes on Anatomy and Physiology to all the students that are taking the class and want to have a life rather than devoting all the time to study A&P.

It's a good book and helped to cut some of my study time studying for my exams in my college A and P class. It's definitely to the point and written in a reader friendly fashion. However, I was recommended another study guide from my pre-med friends at another college which is the following: Key Facts for Anatomy and Physiology ISBN: 0971999694
This study guide helped me to prepare for the specific key facts asked on my A & P exams. It also helped me to cut my study time because it cut away a lot of the fluff in over-written textbooks. I got good grades with the help of these study guides I highly advise getting these 2 study guides.

I bought this book for my Anatomy & Physiology I and II classes. It was a huge help to me. Topics are made easy to understand, and it is very portable with is smaller size. It is very clear and concise and includes helpful charts and diagrams. So if you are needing a little extra help with these classes, I would recommend this book. It's cheap, not bulky, and makes difficult concepts easy.

Most A&P textbooks are just too big to be useful for review. This Cliffs Quick Review is great in that they have packed a lot of important information into such a small and readable book. The figures and tables don't compare artistically to those found in the extremely expensive full color glossy pages of the latest textbooks, but they are competitive in terms of being useful and helpful for learning. This book is a very good resource for review. You may need to use other resources if, for example, you want to review more than the very basics of physiology, but for a general review this book does just fine.

This is a good summary of anatomy and physiology if you don't have time to read the textbook. It is written in an easy to understand style. It can help in learning some information. If you want to know the kind of questions asked on exams in college anatomy and physiology class, get the following which is also [available]:
Anatomy and Physiology Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers with Explanations (Vol 1 ISBN: 0971999619) (Vol 2 ISBN: 0971999627). I used these three books and they helped me get an "A" in my A and P class. When my friend took an A and P class at another college, she used these 3 books and also got an "A". I rest my case. Get these three books.

I used the book to prepare for my massage therapy test. I also loaned it to a nursing student that was having difficulty passing her class and she said it helped her immensely with the exam.

I bought this book shortly after my first A&P Exam, which I did very well on. I made my own summary notes of each chapter in my A&P book and it took hours. Then I saw this book and was amazed at how detailed and easy-to-understand most of the information is. I could've saved alot of time if I had this book. I think it's a great addition to any A&P book.
