Medical -Surgical Nursing assessment and management of clinical problems, Lewis
By Christine Demmin
This is a great book that is very useful for the begining RN student. It explains everything in detail and shows how things are done. Very useful for quick facts about the diseases and their processes. GREAT BUY!!!

Save your back... get the two-book version
This same book is available in a two-book set. I highly recommend the split version so you don't have to carry one, huge, heavy book around all semester!

Not for your entry level nursing student
This book is great if your studying nursing at a Master's Degree level and the emphasis of your learning is on pathophysiology. Otherwise don't even bother with this text, it repeats itself with information every few paragraphs or refers you to other chapters when discussing a particular disease process. Unless you've had organic chemistry and some upper division biology, and bio-chemistry classes, this is not the text for the beginner. The tables are confusing, and once again the use of diagrams is overwhelming to the beginning nurse. I strongly reccomend that if your going to purchase this book, you buy it used, it's not worth the money new.
