Last semester in college I had to take an Anatomy & Physiology class. That means buying more ridiculously expensive books. This lab manual was $80+shipping and I got it used off eBay. For a text book I did like this book. It has a lot of relevant information on the human body. It also has detailed instructions and pictures for dissections. That part was gross and the pictures in the book do not look like what was at my dissection table. I liked some of the wording of the book in certain parts. Other sections were a little harder to decipher. If I had not needed to sell this book back for money I might have kept it. I would recommend getting this book or at least thumbing through it if you are considering taking an Anatomy & Physiology course. I knew what I was getting into when I signed up, but there were people who were shocked at some of the labs we would be doing.
