Overview

For one-semester courses in human anatomy.

This ISBN is for instant access to Pearson eText.


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. 


Pearson eText is a simple-to-use, mobile-optimized, personalized reading experience. It lets students highlight, take notes, and review key vocabulary all in one place, even when offline. Seamlessly integrated videos and other rich media engage students and give them access to the help they need, when they need it. Educators can easily schedule readings and share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their eText and what they learn in class – motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning. And, reading analytics offer insight into how students use the eText, helping educators tailor their instruction. 


NOTE: Pearson eText is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content and should only be purchased when required by your instructor. This ISBN is for instant access to Pearson eText. In addition to your purchase, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Pearson eText.
