A Plus code in the front of each new book unlocks DavisPlus student content. Two, 50-question exams, unique to DavisPlus, give you even more practice. (Access can also be purchased at DavisPlus.com.)

The layout is the most helpful part for me. It is planned out just like how I take notes, simple and effective. I like the bullet points and the questions with answers/rationales. Also, I like how things that are high-risk are highlighted in red.

– Shannon White, Student at Oregon Health & Science University

I love the "Did you know?" and "Making the connection" sections, as well as the diagrams. Everything is explained in such a clear, concise way! I also like that questions and answers are within each section, so you aren't flipping to the back to check your answers.

– Linda Dicken, Student at University of Maryland

The pictures and straight to the point explanations and outlines most helpful (but if we really had to be honest here, the entire book is WONDERFUL and every single part is EXTREMELY helpful!)

– Carly Hasting, President of Alabama Association of Nursing Students, Student at University of Alabama in Huntsville
