Renowned for her effective learning systems, respected author Sylvia Mader has helped thousands of entry-level students understand and enjoy the principles of human anatomy and physiology. Now, Susannah Longenbaker is building on Dr. Mader's format and engaging writing style while adding her own personal touch to this successful title. The writing is still clear, direct and user-friendly, but is now enriched with new clinical information, terminology and classroom-tested features such as "Focus on Forensics" readings and in-text "Content Check-Up" questions. Drawing on over twenty years of teaching experience, Sue Longenbaker writes for the next generation of students that will learn anatomy and physiology from this classic textbook.
- Logical, accessible writing style for the one-semester course that includes lots of relevant examples, artwork and analogies.
- Excellent pedagogy written to capture the interest of the student and expand upon the chapter concepts. Examples include; Focus on Forensics, Medical Focus, Visual Focus and What's New boxed readings.
- Anatomy and Physiology Revealed (APR)
This text has the opportunity to be packaged with the most unique and popular student tutorial CD in the anatomy & physiology market today.
