Marieb 6th edition.

Marieb 7th edition and Saunders. I would have to dig out the atlas we used. Can't remember it right off hand. But it was awesome. Great pictures.

I feel kinda left out! LOL I dont use the Marieb book, we use Anatomy and Physiology, pub by McGraw Hill written by Kenneth Saladin 3rd ed...the website for this book is really helpful and free! http://www.mhhe.com/saladin3

Our lecture book was Tortora and Grabowski. We used the Marieb cat version of the lab book, though.

Specializes in Float. Has 3 years experience.

We used Martini for lecture and Marieb for lab. I wasn't crazy about Martini... it was wayyyy more info than we had time to cover. Our instructor did his own thing and we barely used the book. All our tests were very lecture oriented..we took plenty of notes! LOL

Specializes in Acute Medicine/ Palliative.

I found Tortora & Grabowski so much easier than Marieb! Unbelievably easier! Isnt that odd..its all the same stuff we need to know! I mean, how can one book be that different? Scary kinda... lol
