This book is terrible!!! I am embarrassed that my school actually uses this book. There are several spelling and grammar mistakes as well as contradicting information from other textbooks. This book is set up terribly making it almost impossible to find any information. I really hope my school realizes how terrible this book is and finds another more useful and error free book for future classes. I would not recommend this book to anyone unless your school requires it. Even then, I would try and find another better written book especially if you need to teach yourself this information

After reading the reviews here, I rented instead of buying. That was a good move. Ugh, this book is full of errors, both factual and typographical. The layout is dreadful, and every time I try to look something up in the index, it's just not there. The end-of-chapter questions give no rationale with the correct answers. I was required to have the lab manual as well, and having worked through several chapters, I've already noticed that some of the information in the manual directly contradicts what is in the textbook. That's so frustrating. The writing itself isn't so bad, it's just hard to work around all those other issues to see that.

This book is horrible, there are so many mistakes and It does not explain abnormal findings good at all. The prep-U that also goes along with the book is full of mistakes!!!It will tell you an answer is wrong then it will give you the same question and if you pick the answer it previously said was correct, then that is wrong too!! Then if you go to the page the explanation says to go to, the info is not even there. I wouldn't even give this book one star

This book will help you ace you lab assignments because you will be able to read/see pics of the different disorders & more importantly how you should document them on your lab sheets (in your own words of course). It helped me get 100% on my full body assessment lab final! As for lecture it was nearly useless, I had to use various books & internet resources to full grasp the topics given. I hope this helps :-)

This book is HORRIBLE. One of my least favorite textbooks of all time, and I've been a student my entire life. The information seems to be biased and incomplete. I've read 75% of this book and in nearly every chapter the abnormal findings focused on minorities especially black people. There seems to be no disease conditions or alterations that are more common in white people.

The text attempts to organize itself...but it's not done in a manner that has helped me retain any of the information. I'm not sure how other health assessments books are, but this one opens with a decent amount of anatomy, which is of course useful, but I wish it also had a LITTLE BIT of physiology to explain WHY the abnormal findings are abnormal. It feels like the physical assessment, which to me is what should make this text worthwhile, is thrown in the middle and poorly explained. I don't hate this text, but it doesn't get me excited about health assessment.
