    I have it, I used it in has good information. Makes things easier to understand by using plainer language, pictures, tips/hints, and quizzes.
    Don't use it as a replacement for a textbook though.
    I used it as a supplement to my textbooks, and found it helped me.
    Good luck!

    It is also helpful in using the analogies when explaining patho to patients.

    I have this book and several others by Springhouse who publish the "Incredibly Easy " series. I find them slightly expensive, but I'm really cheap. They do help, I just need to read mine more. I recently took my newest one to work to show to the others, its the lab tests one, and one of the Docs noticed it and after asking permission, checked it out, He was impressed I even got to use it later the same night to explain somthing to a pt., so Yes, I think they are helpful books.

    thank you for your replies. i thought that they were a little pricey as well. that is part of the reason for asking what everyone else thought of the books. i was looking for a way to brush up on some patho without dragging out the 300 pound text!! thanks again for the responses. :kiss
