Overview

For one-semester courses in human anatomy.

This package includes Mastering A&P.

 

A functional approach to human anatomy, available in a multifunctional eText

Human Anatomy, the #1 best-selling textbook for the human anatomy course,is widely regarded as the most readable and visually accessible book on the market. Using a functional anatomy theme, the text presents human anatomy as a well-illustrated “story” with the right amount of detail that learners can understand at an introductory level. Analogies and comparative descriptions make anatomical structures more memorable and understandable, and explain how the shape and composition of structures allow them to perform their functions.   

 

The 9th Edition features new exercises and questions that help students learn and use anatomical language and interpret real-world medical images while learning basic human anatomy. Building on the functional anatomy approach of previous editions, selected illustrated tables have been enhanced to tell a more cohesive and logical “story” of human anatomy. In the eText edition, dozens of embedded videos and animations help students visualize, manage, and master anatomical terms and structures, along with instant cross-referencing that eliminates the need to flip pages to connect concepts across body systems.

 


Personalize learning with Mastering A&P

By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, Mastering personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.Built for, and directly tied to the text, Mastering A&P enables an extension of learning, allowing students a platform to practice, learn, and apply outside of the classroom.
