This is an excellent book for anatomy and physiology. The illustrations are great. The topics are explained with simplicity. I especially loved the muscular and skeletal sections. I also recommend: Anatomy and Physiology Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers with Explanations by Patrick Leonardi (Vol 1) (Vol 2) This study guide had great review questions for my college exams. It showed me the type of questions to look out for. These three books helped me a lot with getting good grades.

The book is great. It has a lot of information and description, but it is not complicated to understand. It covers anatomy and physiology of the body systems.

I received my book very quickly and it was in great shape! I am a returning college student and the mother of three small children so the price was great!!
