This error is kind of like explaining that the flu is caused by a brick. There is only one statement about CJD in the book, and it is dead wrong. And wrong in so many ways but I don't have time to thoroughly rant, we are having a quiz next week. Anyway CJD is of a unique disease type; those caused by infectious proteins - prions - in 1997 the Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to Stanley Prusiner for discovering prions.
I don't believe this error is necessarily the chapter author's fault-I suspect it is a result of sloppy editing. Note-"Understanding Pathophysiology" is a lighter, butchered version of "Pathophysiology: The Biologic Basis for Disease in Adults and Children (Pathophysiology the Biologic Basis) - the description of CJD by the same chapter author is correct in the latter book. Overall "Understanding Pathophysiology" is painful to read, to me it's a hacked to death version of "Pathophysiology: The Biologic Basis for Disease in Adults and Children".
My apology for this ranting review. Please look up prions and dementia. (But not in "Understanding Pathophysiology"!!)
The accompanying CD and online resources were not helpful to me. I did everything on the CD and all the online resources for the first quiz and almost none of it was on my online quiz. Our professor said the questions were selected randomly, so maybe all that was helpful to other students. For the second quiz I skimmed the chapters and looked at the online powerpoints and got 100%. I won't bother with the CD or online helps again.
I also liked how the pages were not shiny like some text books. Not only did I not have the glare from lights on the page, highlighters did not smear, which was a plus. The CD that came with it was useless, as was the accompanying website. The class also required purchase of a product key that got us onto a tutorial website that went with the book, that was helpful. It was nice to be able to purchase that separately, because compared to the bundle at the college bookstore, this was MUCH cheaper!!
