    Extremely helpful-You must have this booklet!

    I had so much information to review for my graduate pathophysiology class and limited time so I bought this review booklet. It has helped so much! There are memory tips with streamlined graphs and rewiew questions. The only thing this book could use would be to have the rational for the anwers provided for the review quizes not just the correct answer.
