1. What I like about the book?: For me, Vander’s Human Physiology is a book that is designed to make things easier for a student to learn. For each chapter, the contents are divided into several sections. This is useful for students to easily search for a specific topic. Diagrams, tables and flow charts that are included in this book make it more appealing to read. Summary that concludes everything which have been discussed earlier in the end of each chapter helps student to note important things that they need to remember. Review questions for each sections are available for students to recall what they have learned before. This book also has clinical case study at the end of each chapter and a chapter with more clinical cases to allow continued exploration of the material learned throughout the book. Some challenging questions are given for students to enjoy consulting other sources to find the answers hence, self-directed learning skills are sharpened.

2. Brief content of the book: This book has 19 chapters. Every chapter starts with an introduction giving the reader a brief overview of what is to be covered in that chapter. General Principles of Physiology have been integrated throughout each chapter in order to continually reinforce their importance. Each chapter opens with a preview of those principles that are particularly relevant for the material covered in that chapter. The principles are then reinforced when specific examples arise within a chapter, including Physiological Inquiries associated with certain figures.

The authors have drawn from their teaching and research experiences and the clinical experiences of colleagues to provide students with real-life applications through clinical studies in each chapter. They have been redesigned to incorporate the format of Chapter 19.

At the end of sections throughout the book, you will find a summary, review questions, key terms and clinical terms. At the end of chapters, you will find: Recall and Comprehend Questions that are designed to test student comprehension of key concepts. Apply, Analyze and Evaluate Questions that challenge the student to go beyond the memorization of facts to solve problems and to encourage thinking about the meaning or broader significance of what has just been read. General Principles Assessment questions that test the student’s ability to relate the material covered in a given chapter to one or more of the General Principles of Physiology described in Chapter 1. This provides a powerful unifying theme to understanding all of physiology and is also an excellent gauge of a student’s progress from the beginning to the end of a semester. Answers to the Physiological Enquiries in that chapter.

3. Does it suit you or any other programs and why?: I feel like this book is really useful for me as a medical student to refer to because it is an up-to-date and comprehensive book. It delivers basic and clinical content, real life applications, and educational technologies to students who learned Physiology. Clear diagrams coupled with highly readable text make this whole subject easily understandable and engaging.

4. Would you recommend this book to your colleagues and why?: I would highly recommend this book to my colleagues because it provides me every information that I need to know in detailed version. Besides, it feels like I am reading a combination of physiology, pathology and pharmacology books for every chapter that I look into. It is all in one! As a student, that is the most important thing to me; to be able to find everything in one book. Well, it is very clear that I am in the hands of experts.
