    Good book, if you already know the topics...

    I found that many of the terms that are bolded,ones that are on the exams, are not defined. Thank God, that I have a good medical dictionary because, I have to keep going to it for the answers that should be in the textbook. It is probably the worst textbook that I have ever seen, very disorganized.
