Comprehensive textbook!  July 2, 2011
by


The textbook is extremely well written for the average person on the street. Also, it's incredibly easy to find the meds you're looking for. This textbook is easy to understand, answers questions about how my medication works, side effects, and missing a dose. It tells about the health warnings, side-effects, etc. so you really need no further research. I would recommend it for ease of finding the information you are looking for with the detail you need. I was amazed how fast I received my textbook. I ordered this textbook a two weeks before my class and I got it before my class began. Ecampus provided excellent customer service, therefore, I will, without a doubt purchase textbooks from this company in the future.
