5-0 out of 5 stars You've got to read this book!
I received this book as a gift. There are quite a few books on this subject on the market and this one is the best. I too could not put it down and finished it in 3 days. It's a huge book, a great resource that is well researched and written.. I have a few friends who've purchased this book and really loved it too. I can highly recommend this book
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for the RN!!!
This Lab manual and text are an excellent pair!This text and lab manual are the best I have had in my years of nursing school. I guarantee you will want to hold on to this for the rest of your career!I only wish I had the text in my ADN program, sorry I had to wait to read it!The manual is a great practice and assessment tool!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book on a number of different levels
I'm a professor of engineering, and decided to use this book as the primary textbook to give a basic idea, for humanities and liberal arts students, of what engineers do.What a great decision!The first part of the book sweeps neatly through basic physics, which is also, as it turns out, basic engineering.Statics, dynamics, friction, thermo--it's all there, neatly encapsulated in a way that humanities students can easily understand what's going on.The text then moves on to the types of things that really float my boat as an engineer--how refrigerators, car engines, and microwave ovens work.Even though I've been involved in engineering for years, and am a licensed professional engineer, I still learned interesting and helpful new ways of thinking about devices and how things work from this book.Moreover, I think this book helps give non-science and non-engineering students the kind of broad-ranging education they *should* be receiving in a university level.Engineering students, after all, have to study at least a modicum of subjects that relate to world history, English, psychology, and so forth.But humanities students can graduate from college without even having the faintest idea about the workings of the technology that can make their lives so healthy, pleasant and liveable.Call me biased or part of the great NASCAR unwashed, but I think it's just as important for a student to be aware of the essentials of how their refrigerator and car work as it is for them to understand the nuances of Shakespeare.Understanding of the fundamentals of technology also leads to students having a better understanding of the tradeoffs involved in good stewardship of the environment.
5-0 out of 5 stars A great book.
As a highschool physics teacher, I strongly recommend this book to everyphysics (and science) teacher. It can serve as a source for daily lifeexamples of physics principles in your instructions. Even if you are aninquiry minded person, you are going to find well-designed explanations forthe functioning of lots of tools, machines, etc. in the book. Reallyexciting, rich content, excellent book.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is what physics is all about!
You don't need to be a physicist to understand this book. Take me for example, I took a year of Physics in college and this is enough for me to grasp the concepts presented in this book. What's so wonderful about thisbook is that it goes beyond the mere equations and formulas we desparatelymemorized before a physics test, it shows that how physics can beincorporated into our lives and improving the quality of our lives. This isa great book for those preparing for the physics AP test and those whosimply want to keep themselves amazed. ... Read more

It's a great review book, not for basicknowledge though, you must have read the material elsewhere, this is just a nice one week crash review book.

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent concise review
this is an excellent concise review of high yeild information.although nothing is a subsitute for regular reading of a surgical text, this is as close as it comes if you are preparing for the absite.it will take a few years to determine this book's utility with the new absite format, but in the meantime this is one of the best that i have seen.

5-0 out of 5 stars Teaching Strategies For Nurse Educators, August 19, 2003
As a future nursing educator I found this book to be indispensable.Over the past fifteen years of my nursing career, I have been in virtually every nursing educational setting. For this reason I have collected numerous books and nursing resources on the subjects of cognitive processes, learning and teaching techniques. This book by far pulls all the information together, and it will become the most utilized of my collection. The information is laid out in a logical format that starts with the basic concepts, theories, objectives and goals of learning. She then moves on to explain how to prepare and conduct classes. She concludes with the testing and evaluation process. DeYoung takes you gradually through everything you need to know to formulate and conduct a classroom setting that is both stimulating and achieves the goal of educating nurses to become critical thinking, problem-solvers. Her work employs the latest research on learning/education and at the end of every chapter she reinforces learning through case studies, critical thinking exercises and ideas for future research. Any nursing educator within the academic setting or within the clinical area would benefit from this text.She has made the material easy to understand for the beginning educator and advanced enough for the expert. I wish I had had this resource at the start of my career.I absolutely recommend this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Parts and Not So Good Parts
Wow, I could've used this one year ago for my first nurse clinical class! This book starts off very promising. It is going to help you grab that elusive thing all teachers want, a class that doesn't put your students in a COMA. The part on learning theory is well explained with examples that pertain to us nurses. There are some basics on the nuts and bolts of instructing a class, again geared towards nursing. Part 2 is where I realize I'm not going to be teacher of the year with this book alone. After switching to patient teaching goals for awhile then we dive into multicultural concepts. I foud the chapter on multiculturalism to be ineffectual and sparse with no real expertise. I wonder why it was included in the book, perhaps it was there to meet an imposed standard. Part 3 is redeeming with some practical and useful ways to turn the learning on in the classroom. This book is useful for a new nurse educator in that she has lots of strategies to choose from with a good base understanding. The experienced instructor caught in the habit of stuffy lecturing can learn new tricks. Overall, this is a good book for beginners and a resource to expand upon. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Okay, but kind of cumbersome
First of all, I must say that this is an excellent book to get detailed information when you are in a bind in the OR.But the problem I have with this book is that it is sort of in a no-man's-land of materials.If I need the nitty-gritty on a subject, I go to Barash or Miller, but in the OR, I only need to get to the stuff I seem to have forgotten, so I go to Ezekiel. Mass General falls somewhere between too much information for the OR, and not enough information for home use.I've also found it rather difficult at times to find things with the small, cramped print. (Not to mention that it doesn't fit as easily as Ezekiel in the back pocket of your scrubs)
4-0 out of 5 stars Good for the O.R.
This book seems to be the icon for O.R. pocket references in Anesthesiology.5-0 out of 5 stars Anesthesia from A to Z
"Clinical Anesthesia Procedures of the Massuchussets General Hospital" offers concise yet thorough coverage on all aspects of anesthesia.From preoperative visit to basic airway management, from fluid requirements of the surgical patient to specific considerations on cardiac, respiratory and liver diseases, this book has it all in an easily accesible way, especially when your above the "blood-brain barrier".I would especially recomend the chapter on resuscitation of trauma and burns victims, because of the thorough coverage of the subject, better than in many surgical textbooks I have read. ...

Dr. Fleenor's book provides a clear, concise, plan for medical school interview success! As a PhD professor in a healthcare professional program, and someone who has served on admissions committees, reviewed hundreds of applications, and interviewed over a hundred students, I feel I can say that this is a resource no medical student applicant should be without.The strategies, if worked through and applied personally, will no doubt increase an applicant's confidence, communication, and poise as they navigate the admissions and interview process.The personal insights and unique stories in the"Tails from the Trail" will inspire many readers that they too can make their dream of becoming a physician a reality!

5-0 out of 5 stars Hope for Our Sick Hospitals
Since we have had several personal experiences of almost dying or being infected after a medical procedure, we tuned into the PBS broadcast of the documentary "Good News... How Hospitals Heal Themselves". It was so revealing that we got the book for both personal and business reasons. In our business, ESF, Inc., we frequently deal with hospitals and those in the medical and nursing professions. Both my husband, Dr. Peter J. Esseff, and I feel this book should be read by personnel in every hospital from administrator to janitor. The "Systems Thinking" initiatives put into effect by the hospitals in the two "Good News" health care systems (SSM Health Care, St. Louis, Mo. comprised of 23 hospitals, and the Pittsburgh Regional Health Care Initiative, Pittsburgh, PA, comprised of 40 hospitals) demonstrated how a variety of "hospital diseases" could be treated and eventually eradicated. These initiatives were used initially by Dr. W. Edwards Deming in helping Japan "work smarter, not harder" in improving their auto manufacturing industry. In these two health care systems, statistics are given that demonstrate how the hospitals were able to: focus more on patients' needs; reduce costs, deaths, suffering, infections, duplication of services, waste of time and supplies; avoid deadly mistakes; streamline their bureaucracy; and work as a Team, from the top to the bottom of the chain of employees, by not placing blame for errors committed and empowering their workers to recommend changes to improve the quality of care in the hospitals.
5-0 out of 5 stars Save your life....and others too....
Read this book and give it to your doctor and your hospital administrator and they will learn how to reduce waste, suffering, hospital-acquired infections, costs, errors and improve patient safety and save lives.And additional money or government regulations are not required to begin this improvement plan.

This is a superb self help textbook which provides concise, clear and easy to understand material. The solutions are really simple to follow. I truly recommend to anyone who needs a guide to his or her chemistry studies.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent self-contained inexpensive chemistry textbook
This has got to be just about one of the best Schaum's outlines available, and that is saying a lot, since there are many good ones. I picked up a copy for self study due to a domino effect - I was attempting to learn molecular biology, which caused me to review my college biology, which in turn meant remembering my college chemistry.
5-0 out of 5 stars This is what a chemistry help book should be!
Over the passed few months, I have been buying a lot of chemistry help books to help me survive college chemistry. I have bought the more popular ones like Chemistry for Dummies and the Complete Idiot's Guide to Chemistry.Both of these books are ok, but the part that they really lack is that they didn't adequately help me in the math of chemistry.In fact, it's actually kind of misleading to read these books, and then take a chemistry class.Because these books brush over the math of chemistry so much that I was led to believe that chemistry didn't have that much math in it.But nothing could be further from the truth!When I took my first chemistry class, I felt like I had more math than I did in my actual math class.And, unfortunately, both Chemistry for Dummies and the Complete Idiot's Guide to Chemistry didn't help out too much in this area (and to make matters worse, the FEW examples of math based chemistry problems they had were ridiculously easy.)

5-0 out of 5 stars This book saved my @ss!
If you are reading this, you are probably preparing for an ABIM internal medicine exam in addition to all your other duties. There is never enough time, is there?Well, I was preparing for the ABIM recertification exam, and it had been 10 years since I'd finished residency. I had slogged through the Mayo review book over the course of five months, dutifully going over every page. Tres painful. There were three weeks left before the exam, and I figured I'd give this book a try. I quickly discovered how ignorant I was, despite doing the Mayo book.Charlie Wiener taught me a lot of critical care medicine way back when, and this text was a lot like sitting down with Charlie. If you are a former member of the Osler Medical House Staff (or did residency training at some other urban hospital), the case scenarios will give you flashbacks. The questions are well-written, and the answers give you really good feedback. The questions are highly relevant, reflecting what the ABIM wants you to know. There are a handful of errors here and there, where the letter of the answer in the key has a different letter than the same correct answer in the question... perhaps the editors changed the order of some of the answers or some of the distractor answers between editions. Mildly annoying, but not fatal.
5-0 out of 5 stars Well thought out questions.....
The first question I had when I was to purchase this book was whether this book was good for the USMLE Step 2 and 3.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great introductory text
This is an excellent introduction to Bioinformatics. It does assume some very basic knowledge of biology- perhaps a couple of paragraphs could help the total newbies.
5-0 out of 5 stars great beginner
In spite of the title (I don't know many dummies interested in multiple sequence alignments) this reference is written by experts in the field of bioinformatics and is very accessable for the beginner.I purchased this book as a beginning graduate student so that I could learn which programs to use to compare amino acid and nucleic acid sequences as well as prepare them for publication and this book was perfect for this end.This text doesn't delve into the algorithms or much theory (which is learned through practice and other sources), nevertheless, I recommend this for the researcher for a crash course or quick reference.This book really helped me get my feet wet in this area (and recently publish a nice alignment) and will certainly reduce my workload next semester for my bioinformatics course!

3-0 out of 5 stars misleading title ....
The tile might be misleading.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best buy for practical optics perston: Buiding Electro-Optical Systems: Making It All Work
Briefly speaking, everybody dealing seriiously with optical design, or even doing academic research, should keep this book on the desk all the time.

3-0 out of 5 stars Excellent but sorely needs references!
This is an excellent how-to book.It's the Home Depot of optics.But the almost complete lack of references (at least in the edition I reviewed) is a HUGE disappointment.This general text could have been so much more useful with a few selected hooks into the specialized literature.I hope the author and publisher consider this seriously for future editions.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!
I believe I have one of the largest personal libraries on electro-optics, how in the heck did I miss this book?Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars very nice conceptual overview
Wow, people seem to be really split on this book. I had Mike Heath for numerical analysis/scientific computing and he was an excellent instructor, one of the best lecturers I've ever had. (As a consequence, I have a hard time separating the book and the class, so judge accordingly.) The book is based on his lecture notes, though he added some material and didn't cover every topic in the book. Just reading the book is useful to give you an overview of the point behind different methods. The goal of the class for which this book was written is actually quite conceptual. It was to give scientists (that's me: a stats researcher who makes heavy use of numerical computation) and CS people in areas other than scientific computing a leg up. It was only a first class for people in scientific computing, the rough equivalent of intro Physics or intro Probability/Stats for people in those respective majors. However, you *won't* be prepared to "roll your own" from this book. In fact, at the beginning of the semester Heath was very careful to note that if you have the opportunity to use a library function for most numerical programming, you are nuts to roll your own. Why? Numerical algorithms are usually extremely complicated and the authors of the code often spend years developing careful expertise on them. Frequently the formulas used to elucidate a given method are NOT the ones used to implement it. You need error traps, tricks to handle ill-scaling and other special cases, etc. These are things that someone who has a one-semester, superficial understanding of a topic simply won't have. So consider the book on the goals it set: it is an overview of a field. If you want to learn more about any one topic, you have to dig deeper and consult references and other works, but this is a good place to start. For this, the book serves admirably.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not for the practitioner
If you are interested in Scientific computing from the viewpoint of the end user that is the guy who uses the method to solve practical engineering problems then this book is lacking.
1-0 out of 5 stars Trash
If you want to have a solid understanding of numerical computation, this book is definitely the last choice. Many theorems are given without any proof or even intuitions behind them in this book. Even when a proof is provided, it's often far from rigorous. The organization of chapters is the worst I have ever seen, revelant materials are scattered over several different locations rather than put together. Take the SVD for example, it is mentioned in the end of chapter 3, but reappears in chapter 4, which is very confusing. If you are new to this area, please don't read this book. It gives you many many facts without explanations, which I think is not a good way to learn new things. David S. Watkins' Fundamentals of Matrix Computations is a lot better and easier to understand. It also emcompasses many detailed treatments of various theorems. If you have bought Heath's book, don't be sad, at least it can serve as a coaster. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars If you have to take Statistics, at least get this book!
I've said it before, and I will say it again. I hate Statistics! It is not just that statistics originated as a means to classify and rank people according to their perceived social worth. Statistics is still used that way as evidenced by the publication and use of the book The Bell Curve. In comparision to a pure science like Neuroscience and also to mathematics, statistics is a subjective science. Everyone knows that statistics can be manipulated and used to show whatever the researcher wants to show...and it is more prone to abuse then most other hard sciences and math.4-0 out of 5 stars the poor statistics students guide to understanding
This book not only assist the researcher in reading and understanding sometimes difficult statistical topics but it also is a excellent guide to decision making when writing your own research. ... Read more
