Overview

The new edition of Principles of Anatomy and Physiology maintains the superb balance between structure and function. It continues to emphasize the correlations between normal physiology and pathophysiology, normal anatomy and pathology, and homeostasis and homeostatic imbalances. The acclaimed illustration program is also even better along with the redevelopment of many of the figures depicting the toughest topics to grasp.

This was the best purchase I was blessed to make. I will look to Barns and Nobles every time I am required to buy a book. I have always enjoyed shopping at Barne's and Noble, but this time I got my book so much cheaper than the book store at the college. I am 52 years old and with a minimal amount of funds available for books, and classes, and transportation, and time-it was truly refreshing, truly encouraging to get my book. The book is great, but the student site has all sorts of support, quizzes, my grades have gotten better since I got my book, and since I have the review materials on the student site. Thanks Barnes and Noble you receive five stars across the board!!! You are the best!

I have to comment on the B/N delivery/status update. I ordered this on 9/1 and did not receive it until 9/8. I realize Labor Day fell in there, but I also chose expedited shipping. When the package arrived, the plastic was half torn off like this was a returned book that someone didn't want and B/N couldn't shrink wrap it again or something. I was disappointed with that. However, the price was the lowest I could find online, so being a poor college student, I'm happy with that.
