Reviews from Amazon users which were colected at the time this book was published on the website:
⭐I purchased this textbook brand new only due to the inclusion of the access code for online content. In every other text I’ve had with online access, there is an electronic copy of the textbook and then varying amounts of other student resources (e.g., review questions, assessment videos, etc.). Be forewarned! This book does NOT include an electronic copy of the text!!! With the access code, the student only gets chapter review questions, heart and breath sounds, and some assessment stuff like skill checklists and guidelines. I emailed the publishing company to inquire about this, but they did not respond. I am very disappointed because I needed the e-text in addition to the hard copy. I am not at all happy to learn I could have paid half or less for this textbook if I had not “needed” the new copy with the “access” code.
⭐Seidel was our required textbook for Medical Practice at my medical school, but after having experienced baby Bates in undergrad, decided to purchase this one instead. So glad I did, because the physical exam sections are set up so that if a patient has any abnormal signs or answers to questions, Bates gives you guidelines about differential diagnoses right next to the question, doing a lot of the inductive reasoning for you. I think Bates’ pictures are better than Seidel’s as well. Would purchase again, and have recommended it to my classmates.
⭐Although you may be required to purchase for a course, be VERY CAREFUL with it. The content itself is good, but the quality of the manufacturing is absolute garbage. My book had many instances where the pages were not cut from printing and in cutting them they turned out jagged and crumpled. My book only had a few pages fall out, but 3 other classmates had their entire books fall apart. They had to purchase plastic binders and bind their individual chapters together. They also had many pages missing, one girl had an entire chapter missing!
⭐the binding on this book is awful. I ordered it ahead of time, and therefore didn’t open it until my course started, at which point it was outside the return window. Within the first 2 days of using the books, pages started falling out and now half the book is loose with individual pages. I question if there is any glue in the binding at all. Additionally, the print is slightly blurred, suggesting cheap printing. I am not looking forward to referencing this book for the remainder of my summer semester. The material seems par for an assessment book, nothing outstanding. I have an older assessment book from a different author which is better organized and manufactured; I plan to use it instead as it has all the same information as Bates.
⭐This book literally fell apart as I opened it for the first time. The back cover states “activate your ebook” but gives no further instruction. The website provided on the inside cover has no resources for an ebook.
⭐Just as has been noted by several other reviewers, the binding on this book eaves a lot to be desired. I purchased this due to the requirements for my BSN program. The book is published by American companies, but printed and bound in China -I have no particular issue with this, but the binding is terrible. Pages fell out the first week I used the book. I found myself making more use of the electronic resource to minimize using the physical book. Once I take my proctored final exam, I will give the book to anyone who needs it. This will NOT be kept in my personal library.To make matters worse, my classwork only required reading two chapters from the book. Rather disappointed. It is not geared toward nusing in any way, shape, or form.
⭐I have no complaints about the content of the book. However, the binding is terrible. The spine and back cover have completely separated from the book and the front cover is also tearing off. I am not rough with my books. This is the only textbook I have ever owned where this has happened. Very disappointed considering 1) the cost of this book and 2) the fact that I purchased this book to use as a reference for the rest of my career and I already need to replace it after owning it and using it lightly for 1 year. I will probably buy an older addition to replace this book because this cheap binding seems to be a major problem with the 12th edition.
⭐Easy to read lay out. Was thankful to have the E-Text and access to quizzes and exams that I needed for my online course. However, the access to videos that the rest of my online class received with their new textbook was NOT included in my new book bought from here. The videos would have really helped me with my head to toe assessment as watching them was apart of our homework assignment that I was not able to complete.
⭐Very educationalGo my studies
⭐The paper was kind of like newspaper, not glossy like you would expect. Some pages had black dots on them and the images were poor. The textbook seemed to be of low quality overall. If you are going to buy a textbook, I suggest to stay away from sellers that sell books branded as new in the used category. I have learned my lesson. Better to spend the extra money for a book that will last and can be easily resold. I suspect this book was a counterfeit or a lower quality international edition designed for overseas markets. If it seems to good to be true, it probably is.
⭐Very surprised by the quality of this book compared to every LWW textbooks that I own, which are usually high quality, long lasting and beautiful glossy textbooks. The pages in this one are mat, they have a newspaper texture and colors are uneven, printing on the cover is low quality with bad resolution… I honestly think it is a counterfeit product.
⭐Purchasing this edition was a replacement for the edition I purchased in 1980. I am very happy with this edition. The sections are well organized, the photos and diagrams are excellent. There is attention to detail. There are excellent discussions on current issues like PSA testing and the DRE in screening for prostate cancer. My only negative comment is that this purchase took more than six months to be fulfilled on the amazon.ca site, despite being available on many other sites, including amazon.com.
⭐I’ve been nursing for 28 years so have had opportunity to read and learn from other manuals , I rate Bates a 7/5
