5.0 out of 5 stars.  The RDH bible., April 03, 2017
By Christina Michniak
This book has so much great information in it. If you are in school purchase this book, don't rent it because you will use it every semester. There's a reason they call it the hygienist's bible.

3.0 out of 5 stars.  but that is also a good thing too, October 15, 2016
By A Customer
The text is quite small and there's not really a break between subjects in the same chapter. It repeats a lot of the same things throughout the book, but that is also a good thing too. Wish it was more detailed in pathology area.
