I give it 3 stars because there are some sections that lack information (e.g. brain stem section of CNS – no detail given on midbrain/pons/medulla, simply skims over vital information), or, when enough detail is provided, it is written in such a way that it only confuses you more as you read (e.g. how photoreceptors transduce light into action potentials).
Still, it’s rudimentary enough to grasp the concept—and I have no anatomy background. This textbook is great only if your instructor is requesting the 8th edition, or you want an AP teen in high school to get ahead.
