Do not use Barnes and noble textbook rental service. I retuned the book in the exact condition it was delivered to me. I was charged $75. I am a loyal and long term customer of b&n and was told they could do absolutely nothing to help me. Multiple other textbook rental companies offer this product also at lower rates. These companies do not rely on the consumer to update them on the condition of their own textbook rentals. I will no longer be utilizing Barnes and noble

This book is extremely helpful. Fills in any gaps you may have on health and physical assessment of all systems of the body. This textbook was a requirement in my BSN program and my only regret is that I rented it. A definite reference to own in every nurses personal library.
