Anatomy even a 60 year old can understand

This is required reading for a class I'm taking. The content is well organized. Language is friendly. Easy-to-understand illustrations and tables. Helpful self-tests and summaries are included with each chapter. The companion online module, Mastering A&P, is fantastic. There are a lot of planned redundancies between all the study aids, which I really appreciate; they help me identify what's most important.

This is a very good textbook. The author gives a lot of detail and and makes each section easy to follow. Haven't really viewed the CD-rom, but if it is anything like the book, I sure it is just as excellent. This book made the class easier.
Well written--technology portion is lame

Good book. Very good book. However, the CD-ROM is bad for anybody using Macbook pro with OSX Lion. The interactive quizzes are just frozen pictures for me. I can't get the disc to work so the extra bucks to buy this instead of a used version wasn't worth it.
Good book for Basic A&P

I got an A for the course.. I think I ended up with a 94-96. I did study hard and once you study hard and learn.. you'll understand the overall aspect of our system, hence, how they function, the importance parts, etc. I can now picture everything I learned on how our system works, the big picture basically. I did forgot lots of vocabulary.. but that doesn't matter. Like my teacher said.. you don't need to learn EVERYTHING.. so relax because this book has lots of vocabulary. :) good luck! I had to watch some videos on YouTube to enrich my understanding. Also, learning all this will flourish you. PS: This will be prepare you for A&P 1-2! My teacher said that it will be a little "harder" >_>;; A little? ha ha.. we'll see, really hope so.

If you are looking for the copy with the CD-ROM MAKE SURE it says CD_ROM in the description. I bought this under the assumption since it was a "new" book that the CD-ROM would come with it. Found out I was wrong. So now I have to spend more money to get the CD-ROM which is about $35. The book it's self is a pretty good book. Just don't get the wrong item.
Not what I wanted.

I ordered and paid for a hardback book and got a softback instead. Not sure yet if I will get my refund or not. I am returning the book. But I should not have to pay to return it. It was not my mistake.
