A wonderful book, exactly as described by the publisher. I purchased this textbook from here and it is cheaper as the price was less than my school bookstore charges.The book is simplified and is written in a clear writing style that makes it easier for students to understand the material. The author's critical thinking activities sum up important chapter concepts with realistic clinical scenarios . Definitely recommend this site, seller, to any hard-working student.
