Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The content was well organized and had a good layout. There were some parts of the loose leaf edition that were helpful like the ability to only take part of the book if needed. However, the pages are the same thickness as a regular textbook. This makes it quite easy to tear the pages around the binder holes. I have to be more careful with this format that I would with a regular bound book. For the price, the holes should at least be reinforced somehow.
Rented the book for my Health class in college. Great quality book that helped me prepare before my tests and just review key material. Comes quickly and in a return envelope for when I return the book at the end of the semester. I recommended it to my friends for when they need the book next semester.
I got this book because it was required in my class, but I have to say it's really useful. I has up-to-date information, examples, exercises. If you're in the Health Major this is a great option to have.
