Anatomy for Dummies

Students Pre-Nursing


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.

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

I've used several summary guides and cliff is quite easily the best.

Specializes in Case Mgmt, Anesthesia, ICU, ER, Dialysis.

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.
