I purchased this book for a class that I ended up not being able to take. I have used it multiple times as a resource book, though, and it is outstanding! Reviews of A & P with each section (by system). The text is understandable, yet not boring. Excellent illustrations.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
