Did anybody use Elaine Marieb for A&P I and II?

I would like to know if this book is good and easy to read. I am looking for it plus the lab manual from the same author. Any ideas where I can buy them.

Thanks.

We used it for A&P2 but mostly studied the powerpoints the prof. provided more than the book. I guess it was ok. Check out Amazon.com.

We use it for A&P1, 2 and 3. I finished 1 this fall and 2 will start on Monday. I think the book is clear in it's explanations, and I love the web resources. If you buy it used, be sure to purchase a web account for the resources, it's well worth it.

As far as locations, I've had good text book experiences at half.com.

I've borrowed it from the public library and I like it a lot but I use the Martini book.

Our school used it for both 1 & 2 along with the lab book too. Try ebay, they often have good prices, study guides and practice tests as well.

We used the Martini book and if something wasn't clear I looked it up in Marieb or Tortora which we both had available in our study lab. Marieb and Tortora had better illustrations and clearer tables. Our teachers didn't like the Martini book, particularly for the Immune system.

Hello there,

I am using the 8th edition of this book for A and P I. So far, I love it. Very easy to read and understand. If all else fails try alibris.com

I teach A & P from this book & truly like it. I do have an extra lab manual (fetal pig version) 8th edition. If you'd be interested in buying it, please PM me and we can work something out.

Take care,

I used this book for both A&P I and A&P II. I think it is great, but my professor used excellent Powerpoint presentations that we used to study for exams. I really only used the text to clarify one or two things and to look at a few illustrations. The one thing that I did use A LOT was the CD that came with the book. It really helped me to get through the most difficult concepts, particularly those involving the endocrine system. I really can't stress that enough. I made an A in both of my A&P classes, and I think that part of the reason my grades were good is because I would watch the CD several times and actually take notes from it as well. It helped me to visualize things like calcium and potassium channels, etc.

Our "not so good Martini book" had tutorial CD's as well. I liked them and it helped alot with certain concepts. It's never a bad idea to incorporate other resources besides the required course material. Our teacher always recommended to browse the internet and recommended "ask.com" The internet is FULL of anatomy related links.

Thank you for all your replies. If anybody is selling the book and the manual, please let me know.

For physiology we used the Marieb book. I don't remember what it was called. It was the most recent edition and it had a co-author (My physio teacher said that Marieb is probably getting ready to retire soon since she now has a co-author for the newest edition). The CD that comes with it is wonderful!

Our school used the Marieb books, but I heard some other the others were better. I did use the website for several things though, especially if your prof tests directly from the book using a test bank.

This is the textbook I used in 1993 (an older version, obviously!). I liked it. Last year, as I was taking it again so my science credit would be current, our college had switched to one by Seeley and the explanations were much more difficult. The professors hated it and have since switched back to Marieb.

I have this book (hardcover) but it comes with a Lab (softcover) which is used for homework assignments. Much ado about everything! I pulled an A in this course but it's definitely a brain catcher! You'll find that A&P ll, which is actually the second half of the book, makes a lot more sense after dredging through A&P l. Study and study and study is all I can recommend.:uhoh3: I bought it through EDMAP.com. Hope this helps. Donna

I did! 1000 pages +. A&P ll is the second half of the book which comes with a softcover Lab. That one is used for homework assignments.EdMap.com is the place I purchased mine at aproximately $ 285 total for both. Excellent books, many photos: both animated pics and photographics. Mucho info! so hold on... I pulled an A, so if you need help cry, holler, and yell. tazmomma54@yahoo.com

I used Marieb for A&P I and II. I really liked the book and thought that it was very clear and easy to understand. I think that the "homeostatic imbalance" sections really help with understanding the concepts. It's important for me to understand this stuff and not just memorize it temporarily for a good grade. Now College Algebra on the other hand.....

Good luck,

We're using a really old version of Marieb. It's got a purple cover.

Oh I hear you about College Algebra. I struggled to get a B 12 years ago....I need a serious refresher in math now that I am starting to prepare for entrance exams and an upcoming Statistics class which I plan to take in the FAll if I am not accepted to nursing school ;)
