This is all I'm permitted to read nowadays and while the subject is interesting, there is no plot and the descriptions are vague and I have no idea who the main character(s) is/are. ...more

Gonna be reading this over the summer break to refresh myself for a unit I have to take in first semester next year! I'll probably tackle it in chunks, so updates will most likely be slow. : " )

The end-of-chapter questions + essay questions were super helpful for revision tbh! Enjoyable enough for what it is - a huge af textbook lmao.
Full textbook here. There's so much information so great for research purposes. Very dense and thorough. Definitely a great resource for people pursuing careers that involve the function of the body. ...more
yes i did use my textbook to complete my reading challenge. i spend way too much time reading this monster to not count it 😂🥴

a really good book. sometimes lacking in detail but that can always be found in other resources. a great resource for anyone wanting to understand the workings of the human body from the most up to date scientific perspective. online resources are also extremely valuable.

Used this as a refresher before taking gross anatomy in medical school. There are a few minor errors I the text but overall, nothing major. My real issue was with the McGraw Hill Connect LMS, specifically the lab interface.

Recommends it for: Nursing and young medical students
Recommended to Mauz15 by: Professor
To think this book is for people with 'lots of time in their hands' is preposterous given the subject matter. The reviewer below me seems to think people interested in the medical field have lots of time in their hands, which makes no sense whatsoever. If you are not serious about the subject, then that is your problem, not the book's problem so don't rate a work by your previous bias of disinterest about the subject. The book does a good overview of anatomy and physiology while at the same time ...more

As far as textbooks go, this one is the best I've ever read. Saladin uses rich story-like text to educate his audience about topics that could otherwise be very dry. The Insights in each chapter provide great examples of how the information is applied in every day life. Illustrations and photographs abound, making learning much easier for those of us who are visually inclined. I definitely recommend this to all professors who are looking for an Anatomy and Physiology text, or students who are tr ...more
This was my textbook for two semester of Anatomy and Physiology as a prelude to my entering a nursing program at a local college. While the lecture PowerPoints and other materials for the class were the primary resource for exams, the Saladin text was very helpful for two difficult classes. This will become part of my permanent library. My own gripe was that e-book technology isn't up to the level needed for easy access -- yet. ...more

Oh yeah, the endocrine system!
Did you know that if your heart were removed from your body and cut up into little pieces-they would still beat simultaneously?
Ok, enough of that. AP 2 ends Aug 6th. Thank God!

Having used the A&P textbook by Marieb in the past (university), I was disappointed in the degree of superficial content presented (e.g not expanding on terms deemed noteworthy, some confusion from the text like differentiating [presynaptic?] facilitation vs synaptic facilitation, etc).

This book was very easy to understand. I wish it went into a bit more depth. As a biologist with much more knowledge on some of the subjects, it would have been nice to have more depth and explanation into certain phenomenon.

I liked this textbook. It covers anatomy and physiology a little deeper than the typical two-semester course will get, but it is a great resource and is easy to understand for an entry-level student. McGraw-Hill also did an outstanding job with the online teaching resources.

back for another semester... i've loved this book in the past but, oh man, this chapter on blood cells is boring! (or maybe I'm just ADD this semester)...

circulatory system is much more interesting.
