Understanding Pathophysiology by Heuther, 4th edition... Any help??

  1. Hey guys!

    I'm taking Pathophysiology as a semi-distance learning course with the textbook Understanding Pathophysiology by Heuther and it is the 4th edition. I am really struggling because I can't seem to understand the professor's notes or the textbook. We're on chapters 4,5,6,7, and 9 which aren't even body systems - they're just the basics of Pathophysiology. Does anyone have study notes that go along with this book? I really need some help here. I tried googling it, but that doesn't produce anything other than the study guide that is meant to go along with the book. I bought Pathophysiology Made Incredibly Easy but it's somewhere in never ever land and the stork (AKA post office man) hasn't dropped it off yet.

    Thanks a ton!

    I wish I loved it! Haha. I'm just having trouble understanding the notes and the book. I don't think the material would be too difficult if I just wasn't so intimidated by the inability to read the material.

    OP, if you post specific questions you might get some help. Most readers don't know what chapters 4,5,6,7, and 9 refer to.

    Coast2coast,

    I don't have specific questions... like I mentioned in my OP I wanted to know if anyone had study notes or something of that nature. That's why I listed the book title, edition, author, and chapters.

    We used that book....I LOVED IT! I do have the workbook/study guide that goes with it, but I've never seen "study notes" for the book.

    Did the workbook help you?

    I didn't use very much....pretty much just used it for the extra test questions for each chapter.

    I took Patho last quarter with the Heuther book. Pathophysiology Made Incredibly Easy helped me SO much, it made everything way easier to understand.. I would read about the topic in that book, and then read the chapters in the textbook, and it made so much more sense. So, I hope that book makes it to your doorstep soon.

    Not all study guides are created equal; the one for this text, however, I found highly useful and I'm still using it as a quick preview for the related Med-Surg studies. Good luck!
