Overview

For two-semester anatomy & physiology lab courses.

 

A concise, workbook-style approach for a fast-paced A&P lab course

This full-color laboratory manual is designed for instructors who teach a two-semester anatomy & physiology lab course, but do not require the full range of laboratory exercises found in Marieb and Smith’s best-selling Human Anatomy & Physiology Lab Manual (Cat, Fetal Pig, and Main). Written to complement Marieb and Hoehn’s streamlined Anatomy & Physiology, 7th Edition, the manual can be used with any two-semester text.

 

The 27 concise, activity-based lab exercises explore fundamental concepts in anatomy & physiology and build students’ observational and laboratory skills. The manual’s workbook-style approach incorporates visual summary tables, reviews key information, and engages students with hands-on drawing, labeling, and writing activities that can be completed using handy tear-out review sheets. Each lab includes learning objectives and efficient summaries of key concepts, as well as a list of materials needed for conducting the lab.

 

The 7th Edition adds dozens of new, full-color illustrations and photos plus new critical thinking and clinical application questions to the Exercise Review Sheets. To improve clarity and readability, the headings, exercise tabs, and tables feature more saturated colors.
