Case-based questions at the end of each chapter enable you to gauge your mastery of the material, and a color-coded format allows you to quickly find the specific guidance you need. Bonus STUDENT CONSULT access - included with the text - allows you to conveniently access the book's content online · clip content to your handheld device · link to content in other STUDENT CONSULT titles · and more!

The text is easy to read - not being too dry/dull or overly wordy. This is an excellent feature and the main point of the series. It did highlight really well links to other topics. It definitely has the advantage of keeping the size of the individual books down while still covering a vast amount of information in the series. I also found that it kept my interest going in the topic as I could see. Case studies were good for reminding me why I was studying physiology and for putting the topic in context and testing understanding as well as knowledge. I liked this book and when heading out and bring a physiology book with me I did reach for this over my copy of Vander due to size.
