This study guide is a valuable tool for a subject/textbook that is very in-depth and overwhelming with information. However, the Practice Exams in the workbook were extremely disappointing. The answer key did not give answers that were even choices for the corresponding questions (i.e., the answer for #1 (for example) would be "J" but the listed answer choices for #1 were only A, B, C, or D) -- this was repeatedly an issue and did not happen on just one or two questions. It was frustrating to study that hard & put full effort into the questions, then to find out you couldn't even rate how you scored. The outlines provided for the chapters in the study guide were helpful, though, so there is some value to the study guide, but you can also use the FREE online resources that are available on evolve.com (see the textbook for more info) -- that website has sample tests, etc that are really helpful and FREE!! (By the way, I have notified the publisher of their errors in the workbook & have still received absolutely no response. Disappointing.)

I'm about halfway through a course in Pathophysiology that's using this text. It does a fair job of covering the various disorders, etc. but often comes up short in explanations. It will sometimes use clinical terminology that it fails to define anywhere in the book. In some instances one can infer the meaning but in at least a handful of cases even knowing Latin doesn't quite help. I'm forced to supplement it with Google searches just to define some of the terminology it uses. Obviously, the jargon comes with the territory, but I believe it often uses poor grammatical structure and organization which can leave the reader confused. I'm a former English teacher and certain phrasing within the book makes it ambiguous what the authors are referring back to. If properly supplemented by a decent professor, it works. However, on its own I find it lacking. Look elsewhere if you're looking to teach this stuff to yourself. If you must buy it, choose a good instructor if possible.

Although this book does cover a tremendous amount of information I find it sometimes too wordy in explaining conditions for the purpose of nursing. Prior to studying nursing, I have a b.S in bio and felt I was reading a biochem book. Gave it a 3 stars because the book does have Great pictures and does make a good reference at times. I believe that the explanation can be a bit simpler for each condition then explained in this text.

Other nursing students in my course of 40 hated the book and supplemented with patho made easy.

This book was a required for my BSN program and it was by far one of my favorite books as crazy as that may sound! The information is very easy to read and understand and is organized so that you can find exactly what you are looking for easily.

I love all things micro and deeper, but for this class, this book just goes too deep into details and it makes the reading soooo long. You really don't have to know all of what is written and the style of writing is really dry.

I rented the book with the assumption I could get the online information on Elsevier. The cost of rental with the cost of the online study tools and quizzes, which my instructor used for the quizzes in the class, cost more than purchasing new. Sad for the company Elsevier to have you pay 62.00 for the online study help..... If a book is used/rental, this cost should be minimal, not to make up for the cost of the new book. Disappointed!!!!

The book is not bad itself, but there are several mistakes throughout the book, which I personally noticed. God knows how many more are there...It is scary that students have been learning a wrong material. The study guide book attached has the same issues. My pathophysiology professor has been done lots of corrections on the material of study guide book content, directing student with her own corrections. This books should be taken off from the shelf and marketing. You are the one who will be treated by nurses and providers taught by the book with errors

This is a nice PATHOPHYSIOLOGY book. It has very detailed information about each diseases listed in this book. This book gives you the information you need about the disease process. I would recommend this book to all medical students out there. This is a paperback book, bulky but not that heavy.
