This book is information overload for the undergrad taking anatomy and physiology for the first time. The smarter student would purchase questions on individual sections that you do not understand. There are some really good cheap nookbooks that do this already.

This book clarifyed many topics for me. The diagrams are excellent and each chapter has a set of questions with answers to help study/comprehend all of the information given. This book was very formal with explinations of organ systems and many other aspects of anatomy. I had to buy this book for an anatomy class that I was taking and this is one that I will definately keep for a while.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
