About this book
This review covers the major systems of human physiology. These Notes are not exhaustive and assume that students have completed a course in human physiology and wish to refresh their memory in preparing for an examination. Students are encouraged to refer to a comprehensive textbook or to monographs while using this review. This book is a revised version of a review book used by our medical students for over ten years. Coverage of various topics in physiology is comparable to the percentage of questions on those topics in recent National Board, Part I examinations. Review questions follow every few pages of text in order to monitor your understanding of the just preceding material. Multiple choice questions are mainly of the two conventional types; "single best answer" questions and "multiple correct answer" questions. "Single co~ct answer" questions have lettered alternatives (Le. , A to E); "multiple correct answer" questions have numbered alternatives (Le. , 1, 2, 3 and 4). The latter questions are answered as follows: Answer A if 1, 2 and 3 are correct Answer B if 1 and 3 are correct Answer C if 2 and 4 are correct Answer D if 4 only is correct Answer E if all are correct National Board Examinations also use matching questions, and matching with four choices (Le. , Situation 1, Situation 2, Both 1 and 2, Neither 1 or 2). Review questions are numbered consecutively within each of the seven chapters.
