While A&P is interesting to a point, I did NOT enjoy this class or this book.

However, since I did read Every. Single. Word. in this book, and spent the last eight months of my life as if this were my bible, I am OWNING it! I read this book, and am currently in finals week, going into finals with a solid A, thank you very much!!!

I can't really write a conclusive review on how good the text is, but I feel like my brain is exploding with knowledge right now. My study buddy a
This book made me smarter.
Textbook, you cost far too much money. I mean, really? I work in publishing, and I know how it's all a rip-off, but come on. That much? That's ridiculous. Sure you have pretty pictures of clavicles and great diagrams of the Action Potential that helped me understand, but I just know that money is not going to the artists or authors or lowly editorial assistants. So give them more money or make the book cheaper.

Textbook, you are too heavy. It hurt to have you in my bag with one other heavy thing
Well, this book got me through two semesters of A&P. Now, on to Microbiology. I will be keeping this book. It served as a great reference for learning the body systems.

School books count, right??? This is a dense one, but necessary for nursing school. Anyone know of any good nursing books (fiction or non) that are entertaining?? Do let me know!

Useful text, got an A. Previous edition was better. Screw you and your unnecessary "updates" to overcharge broke med students - and then remove information!
Linsey Duckett
No doubt I'll be reading this over and over for the rest of the semester. And yes it does still count as a book!!
Greg Carroll
I love this book.
This was the text book for my General A&P class, but it is not the first book I go to when I have a question. It is way too much information for my class. Class has a 40% pass rate, so I don't think it's that the class is really easy, but this book is so in-depth it's way more information than I care to cloud my brain with. It sounds awful, but I really like The Complete Idiot's Guide to A&P. I gets to the point of what I need to know and has a lot of really helpful tips & tricks to ...more
I am sooooo not a fan. Granted, the topic is complicated. But this text is way too dense, and not explanatory as a good textbook would be. The organization by system leads to absurdities: we learn about one aspect of the liver when reading about the lymphatic system, and then learn about a wholly different function when reading about the digestive system, and neither time does the text tell us about the functional totality of the liver. The liver deserves better! It is awesome!
Great intro to both Anatomy & Physiology for the complete tyro.

The first chapters on biochemistry brought back all the fantastic knowledge I had forgotten since high school.

Even though it's a textbook, it's still best read cover to cover like a novel as the chemistry builds to simple anatomy which then yields to physiological structuring.

A fun bedtime read.

This is my favorite A and P textbook ever. it is comprehensive, readable without big and unnecessary words. I will be using it for A-N-P I, and II and i'm very happy with it so far. the only thing i dislike about this book is the price, so for those who can't afford a new one get a older edition. same thing trust me my friend is using the 3rd ed and he's A student.
An excellent basic physiology text, well explained and clear diagrams.
Moseka Garcia
Wow! What an intense and overwhelming class. There is just so much information to know. I'm happy to say I am in FINALS WEEK, and can kiss this class goodbye.

......only until next semester when I will then take AP2 :(

UPDATE: I got an A in AP2!!!!!!
The book makes the subjects of anatomy & physiology easy to understand. It layers the information so the reader can go into detail if they want or you can just take away the general concepts.
Actually really good. If ever you find yourself in need of an informational yet digestible book on your own body and how it got here, this is a good one to pick.
This is the textbook for my class. Most of the illustrations are very helpful. The text and order of introducing subjects can be confusing, but mostly good and clear.

It's Anatomy & Physiology... does it get more exciting than this???

Here we go... Anat. & Phys., part 2.. One more semester to go and I'm done with this book
I don't know how to rate a textbook because generally they're pretty dry. This one got the job done. Lots of helpful illustrations.
This book is currently my by God I am adding it in. It is a grand tale of love lost and ever present hope. I highly recommend it.

decent, but not stellar, some text books are more intelligible, others not. good pictures..but seriously, good diagrams
Lexi Muhlenbeck
Yayyy! I'm finally finished with this course! Pretty informative book but there are better A&P textbooks out there.
As much as I would love to rate this a one star, it was good for class and made it easier to understand the materia.
This is why I've been so poky about posting other books this semester. It's 8 pounds of very dense material.

Recommends it for: Any health/fitness professional
Read an earlier edition as part of my college anatomy and physiology class. Very good information!
As compares with the other major A+P textbooks: Totora and Martini, I think this is the best one.

Using this book for uni, easy to read and easy to understand. Love the chapter summaries.
I'm only on chapter 3, but I think this one will take me for a ride!
