Everything in here is great but it's such overkill - you will get the same certification from a 6 hour CPR first aid class as you will get from reading this textbook and taking a college class. You may be more prepared to provide aid, but you will have no more say in patient care than the dude who did it on a weekend. If you are so interested that you want to take a class, take an EMT class instead - apply your knowledge and broaden your scope.

This book is full of really good information and will be helpful not only in my college course, but will continue to be a good reference outside of the classroom when dealing with real-life situations. My only concern was that the book didn't come in the condition I thought it would; when it says the book is in "very good" condition, I would expect an almost like-new copy, not one that is very, very tattered on the front cover. Anyway, this book is useful and the wear-and-tear is minimal, especially in essence to how much use I will get out of it.

I ended up getting a B in the class overall, it's a book full of tons of useful and relevant information to today's first aid needs. There is more information then what I though would be in there originally. It's a very hands on book which I liked a lot

I know this is usually for a class. But please inform your professor to find a different book!!! Most of the questions in the back of the chapter are wrong!!! And the answers in the back don't even match up to the questions. Highly disappointed

This book was well worth the price. Cheaper than any of the other college bookstores. Glad I buy them on Amazon and Ebay, instead of give or donate rather my hard earned money to a redundant institution.

Great product. Husband would not have been able to get his book for class if I was not able to get his book here. Was much lower than getting it at school.
