This book contains a LOT of information. No joke - it's a lot of reading but it is extremely helpful. Purchased this book for one of my vet tech classes and I think i was one of the few people that did the actual readings assigned. You can only learn so much 'on the job' but this book helps to support why things are done the way they are and it gives excellent references and examples to help explain things. Without this book, I would not have become the veterinary technician I am today. I took the course over 2 years ago and I still reference the book for pertinent information.

I liked the book set as far as being a good review. However, you CAN NOT access the workbook answers on their site unless your a teacher. So, this makes the set rather useless because you can do the workbook but there is no way to check your answers. They should have included them with the workbook or at the very least made them available to the student if we want to use it as a review for the VTNE.

I am a student of Veterinary Technology and was looking for a book which would give me a leg up on my studies. I find this book very informational as well as filled with great photos to enhance my learning experience. I highly recommend signing up for the on-line version which you receive free with your purchase. It comes with labs and more details and learning aides which put this book in the five star category.

I bought this textbook and workbook to study independently for the VTNE. They arrived quickly and in perfect condition. The textbook is comprehensive and full of great information. However, the workbook does not come with answers to the questions and puzzles. You must register on the Evolve website, and you must be a student or instructor to gain access to the workbook answers and extra website materials. Students are only given access to answers for the odd numbered workbook questions, and I have found several mistakes in the answers.
