Purchasing this book from Barnes and Nobles is not the same as purchasing it from your college bookstore. There are some very important key elements missing when purchasing at Barnes and Nobles. The book description includes mention of 60 video clips demonstrate exam techniques for each system and are downloadable for use on Video iPod devices, 25 new anatomy and physiology animations provide narrated explanations of processes beneath the skin, and new audio chapter summaries, downloadable for use on MP3 players, offer a convenient way to review key content on the go. What they fail to mention is that those elements are only available when purchasing the book from your college bookstore.
