Before I purchased this book/workbook I read the reviews and was upset to see that it was such a negatively reviewed book. Though now that I've got it and have read 4 chapters, and done the workbook exercises I see what others are talking about. Some of the workbook questions are okay, many others are horribly worded, and others.....well, they're testing whether you read small details, not whether you understand broad concepts.
For instance in chapter 8, you'll read about the Inflammatory process, which if you've taken A&P II, you've already been exposed to. Well, in the book you learn about Mast Cell Degranulation and the importance of it. There you read that there are two products of Degranulation (along with several other items that the Mast Cell can synthesize)....but those two products are 1. Histamine, and 2. Chemotactic chemicals, specifically Eosinophil Chemotactic factor and Neutrophil chemotactic factor. That's it. However, in the workbook chapter 8 practice test, which is mostly multiple choice you'll be asked to select from 4 choices, the products of Mast Cell Degranulation....and not ONE of those choices includes both of the products and only those products.
If you have to have the book/workbook for class, good luck. I have to believe there are better Patho textbooks out there. :(
