This is a required nursing book for my BSN program. It's helpful because it reviews A&P and pathophysiology with each section. It also incorporates Pharmacology with each disease process. This book gives good examples, charts, tables, figures, and pictures for those who are visual learners. The DVD-ROM and online tools are also excellent teaching tools. I found this book easy to read and the layout of each chapter was easy to follow.

This book is an international standard,very helpful both in nursing care procedures and treatments with its scientific applicable methodologies. Easy to read and understandable,more practical with doable activities in step by step procedures. It also focuses on the whole person treatment(Physical,social, & psychological) situations.It is a book must to have for nursing field professionals  to handle today`s complicated health situation.
