Well, I learned a great deal from this book that I finished reading, but I'll have to use it again next smester. I am glad that I finished reading it and will not have to read it much in 2012. I have a reading OCD. I need to finish reading whatever I begin, so it is no wonder that I always finish reading my textbooks. Lucky me. *sarcastic tone* I love reading though, but sometimes, you just need to stop and for me, that's never an option. I am getting off topic, but this book was very useful and ...more
Very informative and I liked all the side bar notes of interesting phenomenons or situations that have arisen. My favorite was the one where it was revealed a fetus had a tumor at the base of its spine and at 26 weeks they performed surgery. They opened the mother's womb, removed the fetus (while keeping it attached to the mother), removed the tumor and then put the fetus back into the womb to finish its development. Medically, that's just cool.

I've got the 11th edition of this book, packaged with the interactive DVD. Very helpful add on that allows you to test yourself. I just started this class, so I have a full year of studying this book ahead of me. Very graphic photos of the disection of cadavers.
I'm very happy to say that I read this book in it's entirety. It was well written (for a textbook), interesting and easy to understand. I am equally happy to say that I'm thrilled this class is over!
Textbook used for Anatomy class Spring 2013. Excellent books with clearly illustrated diagrams of human body structures. This is one textbook I will keep and not sell back at the end of class.

I don't know how to rate a textbook... but I sure learned a lot from this class & I read the whole damn book so it gets 4 stars :-)
Interesting. Difficult class if you don't have a medical or biology foundation.
This book sucks...doesn't explain anything.
