I want to order Anatomy and Physiology for Dummies. Is it better to order the book, workbook, or both?
Get both! I got both from Books a Million. Im using it for A&P II, I didnt need any help books for A&P I, but I flipped through the books and it can be helpful. The workbook has exercises for each section, I think it will help me a lot. I also got two coloring books the Anatomy and Physiology coloring books by Wynn Kapit and Lawrence M. Elson. I recommend you get those as well. You want to be as prepared as you can be for A&PI.
Thanks! I will certainly get these. I am rusty in this and need all the help I can get.
lol. I'm glad I'm not the only one who sought after those dummy books to get a clearer grasp on the material during my pre-studying. good luck to all!
I have the book and it is very, very basic. Its written for someone who just wants a general understanding. I would suggest Anatomy and physiology the easy way(the title is very amusing) over the dummies books. Truthfully, most A & P classes will be much harder than the dummies book. I found it helped to review some concepts but that's all. They will not get you a much better grade. You have to learn the concepts from the main book and use the internet. You will be better off.
Get the cliff notes version http://www.amazon.com/Anatomy-Physiology-Cliffs-Quick-Review/dp/0764563734/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1249161816&sr=8-1
I've used several summary guides and cliff is quite easily the best.

Rhoades and Bell's Medical Physiology book got me through graduate-level physiology. It's a first-year medical school textbook, is imminently "readable", and I guarantee will be at or above the level of any A&P they can throw at you. Good luck.
