"This is a very well put together book with lots of clear illustrations and photographs. It adequately covers the essentials of radiographic practice...Overall, this is a book that students might find useful to dip into in order to clarify issues; educators might find it a useful resource and the small 'limited' practice could easily find it to be a blessing. I liked the book so much that we ae ordering copies for our library, and I will be recommending it to students from the start of the next academic year."
I took the first half of my radiography class not too long ago and we used this book. As the quarter progressed my professor started noticing mistakes in the book, and even some of the answers for the associated workbook questions were wrong too. Luckily she knew what she was doing and told us the correct way to do things. Make sure your book doesn't have errors in it! This one does!
