User Review  - SandZi46 - Borders

Great book to help you understand your text book. It helped me with the tests and understand the material more completely by summarizing the text and making it easier to understand. These Easy books are all awesome! I wouldn't be without it! Pathophysiology and EKG books are great as well! Read full review
