Admired and respected for its precise and flawless illustrations, Essentials of Anatomy & Physiology provides students with easy-to-follow explanations of core anatomy & physiology concepts. Crafted especially for students with no prior knowledge of anatomy & physiology and with little science background, Essentials of Anatomy & Physiology provides a solid framework for learning, interpreting, and applying information. Features such as Clinical Notes and Professional Profiles engage students by showing them how concepts apply to healthcare workplace situations. The book is automatically packaged with the Interactive Physiology(R) 10-System Suite (IP-10) CD-ROM. TheFifth Edition has been revised for "ease of use and ease of assessment." Chapters have been reorganized around new Learning Outcomes, which indicate to students what they should be able to do with what they have learned by the end of each chapter. The numbered Learning Outcomes are tied to numbered full-sentence section headings that not only introduce new topics but also teach something about those topics in the headings themselves.Checkpoint questions "close out" each major section to ensure that students have understood the material and its corresponding Learning Outcome before they move on to the next major section. New visually based end-of-chapter questions further the visual orientation of the book and test students' visual understanding of key facts and concepts. The Test Bank and the online quizzes and tests are now also organized by the chapter Learning Outcomes, making student assessment easy for instructors.
