Detalles del producto
Dental anatomy is a collection of facts that should be presented either in list form, or as text attached to a WELL-LABELED diagram, with SOME description of what's going on. Instead, wheeler presents the data in lengthy prose (which, despite its boring length, is frequently unthorough). The text is loaded with blank diagrams, some shaded/contoured, some simply line drawings, and some drawn on a graph background, almost none of which have any kind of in-graphic labeling. The only description of the illustration comes at the bottom of it, and is nothing more than an identification of tooth and aspect of the picture. In addition, he fills up the book with idiotic pictures of real teeth side-by-side which vary greatly and essentially confuse matters. Needless to say, he never bothers to label anything within these pictures.
It's extremely difficult to use this book to learn from. It's excessively tedious to get the information from the text, and almost impossible to make use of the illustrations. It's as if he initially wrote the text with no intent of including illustrations, then, at the request of others, threw in the illustrations at the very end. Apparently, Wheeler was too lazy to actually WRITE SOMETHING ON THE ILLUSTRATIONS!
If you are a dental student, and your professor recommends this book, save your money. This book is high-school. I'd give it zero stars if I could.
It's boring, and the illustrations aren't clear and do not correspond well to the text.
The author should be killed twice.
Very unfortunately it is the main text in our dental anatomy course.
