Now in its Tenth Edition, Essentials of Human Anatomy & Physiology continues to set the standard for short-course A&P texts. Its dramatically updated art program, more streamlined presentation of material, and integration of chapter objectives will help allied health students better visualize and understand the structure and function of the human body. Elaine Marieb’s clear and friendly writing style emphasizes the relevance of anatomy & physiology to students’ lives and future careers. The book clarifies concepts, defines key terms, and offers just the right balance of anatomy, physiology, and clinical coverage to make the content complete without being overwhelming.
While many authors merely condense a two-semester text to meet a one-semester need, Elaine Marieb wrote this book specifically for the one-semester course and continues to carefully select a range of material that proves just right for the shorter course. New information on hot topics like the HPV Vaccine, Infantile Polycystic Kidney disease, and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) draws students into the material, while a flexible topic structure allows instructors to choose a chapter sequence to meet virtually any need.
Thoroughly updated, the Tenth Edition offers instructors two options for online course management, including CourseCompass™ and BlackBoard. The book also offers the Essentials of Interactive Physiology®CD-ROM, an Instructor Resource DVD, and the Anatomy and Physiology Place Companion Website.
