Human Anatomy & Physiology speaks to the way today's students learn and study, bringing A&P to life with student-friendly writing and just-in-time coaching. The learner-centered approach uses art to guide you through complex A&P topics, one-concept-at-a-time, before bringing the parts together in a summarizing Big Picture figure.

The 2nd Edition provides coaching at the very moment you need help, starting with the new Module 1.1: How To Succeed in Your Anatomy & Physiology Course. Questions that focus on case studies and real-world scenarios enable you to practice and develop critical-thinking skills.
