    Summary: Excellent primer! A brief, concise Introduction to A&P!
    Rating: 5

    Donald C. Rizzo has done an excellent job in making this book. If you
    never took A&P in college, and you want to learn the subject on
    your own for whatever reason, this is the book to start with, hands
    down. It does exactly what the title implies; it covers the
    fundamentals without a lot of wordiness, making the material easier to
    retain. My point: you definitely learn the subject, and fast! The book
    is so easy to read, its like a novel. I simply couldn't put it down. By
    following the mantra to independent study and learning (repetition,
    repetition, repetition), I believe I am as competent in the subject as
    anyone who took one year of A&P (as far as the fundamentals go),
    due to the fact that the text is straightforward, concise, and well
    written. I haven't found a recognizable mistake in the text yet. I also
    recommend buying the study guide, which helps retention.

    However, I consider this book a primer, because other textbooks I've
    examined, such as Thibodeau and Patton's "Anatomy & Physiology
    (5th)," and John W. Hole Jr.'s "Essentials of Human Anatomy &
    Physiology (6th)," explain the material in somewhat greater detail,
    with more to learn. But so do the A&P books used in medical school
    courses. The bottom line is this: once you have gotten the fundamentals
    from Rizzo's book stabilized in your memory, you can step up to the
    larger, more detailed texts, not just the two mentioned above, but even
    the texts used in medical school. That is what makes Rizzo's book an
    excellent primer to the subject.


    Summary: Recommended Book
    Rating: 5

    I appreciate how Donald Rizzo explains the assortment of topics in his
    book. At first I considered I would be turned off to all the
    information to learn. I found how he explained cephalad, caudal, medial
    and lateral with much clearness. The examples of how to use each one
    was uncomplicated to learn from. The Integumentary System and Nervous
    System chapters were complex to a degree. This subject is not as easy
    as intro to biology. This book ranks high in my mind. Other
    recommendations.....
