Great reference tool for future use. May 26, 2011
It's really giving me great insight on diseases and treatment options available. The textbook covers all of the basics and gets into just enough detail to understand the topics without getting too confusing. Testing at the end of the chapters assist in learning material. Great reference tool for future use.
