Could someone recommend a personal A&P book?

  1. What's up guys? I hope all is well with each and every one of you. Are there any personal resources on A&P that someone could recommend to me? I am keeping my classroom book, but feel that I need something more. I am determined to learn the human body inside and out. Also, what A&P text are you using or have used? Mine is anatomy and physiology-the unity of form and function- authored by someone with the last name of Saladin. Sound familiar?

    Thanks in advance.

    I had to get something that I could carry with me and use in my medical coding classes and found Human Body: An Illustrated Guide to Every Part of the Human Body and How it Works at a bookstore in Laughlin, Nevada over Christmas vacation. The deciding factor in buying it was that it had a good cross-sectional picture of a vertebrae that we were needing to distinguish between paravertebral and transforaminal injections of the spine. It's 5 1/2 by 6 1/2 inches and a little over 1 inch thick and I can carry it around easily. Beautiful color pictures. Concise text.

    If you want weblinks, I've got 8 pages of them. Can't say they're all still active though. Have you checked the sticky threads on all the nursing student forums. I know for sure that there is one for anatomy on the Pre-nursing forum that has anatomy weblinks.
