    This is a great simplified anatomy reference. It has all those things that you do need, with nothing you don't. I waited til the end of my first semester in Vet school to get this book, big mistake! It was so helpful, i am going to make sure i buy Kainer's Horse coloring atlas also. 'Dr Kainer is actually a professor at Ross University, where i go!'
