About the Author

For Elaine N. Marieb, taking the student's perspective into account has always been an integral part of her teaching style. Dr. Marieb began her teaching career at Springfield College, where she taught anatomy and physiology to physical education majors. She then joined the faculty of the Biological Science Division of Holyoke Community College in 1969 after receiving her Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

While teaching at Holyoke Community College, where many of her students were pursuing nursing degrees, she developed a desire to better understand the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and the clinical aspects of the nursing practice. To that end, while continuing to teach full time, Dr. Marieb pursued her nursing education, which culminated in a Master of Science degree with a clinical specialization in gerontology from the University of Massachusetts. It is this experience, along with stories from the field—including those of former students, now in health careers—that has informed the development of the unique perspective and accessibility for which her texts and laboratory manuals are known.

In her ongoing commitment to students and her realization of the challenges they face, Dr. Marieb has given generously to provide opportunities for students to further their education. She contributes to the New Directions, New Careers Program at Holyoke Community College by providing several full-tuition scholarships each year for women returning to college after a hiatus or who are attending college for the first time and would otherwise be unable to continue with their studies without financial support. She funds the E. N. Marieb Science Research Awards at Mount Holyoke College, which promotes research by undergraduate science majors, and generously contributed to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst where she provided funding for reconstruction and instrumentation of a cutting-edge cytology research laboratory that bears her name.

In 1994, Dr. Marieb received the Benefactor Award from the National Council for Resource Development, American Association of Community Colleges, which recognizes her ongoing sponsorship of student scholarships, faculty teaching awards, and other academic contributions to Holyoke Community College. In May 2000, the science building at Holyoke Community College was named in her honor.

Additionally, while actively engaged as an author, Dr. Marieb serves as a consultant for the Benjamin Cummings InterActive Physiology¨ CD-ROM series, and is an active member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS). Anatomy & Physiology, Second Edition is the latest expression of her commitment to student needs in their pursuit of the study of A&P.

This book really helped me in my anatomy class.

The book is actually very good and can be helpful, but I hardly used it at all.

This book was really useful - the coloring parts are especially good if you are a visual learner. There's also more to it than just coloring in pictures - there are lots of fill-in-the-blanks sections to test your knowledge and review major ideas. This is where the only criticism lies....if you don't have the textbook (or a good knowledge of the material) then some sections will be hard to complete. Answers are provided, however, so overall, it is a really useful book and offers more than you might first assume.

Format: Paperback
It's a really useful book, which is neither too complicated or too easy. I'm studying at university to become a paramedic, and it has been a very helpful tool in the specific anatomy and physiology topics they expect us to understand. The pages held colour pencil just fine - I remember reading a review before buying this which said the pages were too "waxy" and didn't hold pencil well. This isn't true. The pages are fine for applying pencil.

The only thing I must say in a sort of negative light is that you must have another anatomy and physiology book as well as this one - this is more of a quiz book on what you know as opposed to something to teach it to you.

It could be used on its own, as the answers are avaliable at the back of the book, but having a seperate textbook would probably be preferable. It is easier to learn things in context rather than simple question and answer form, in my opinion.

All in all, I would highly reccommend this book to anyone who is a more visual learner and studies anatomy and physiology.

This is an odd one. The book is actually very good and can be helpful, but I hardly used it at all. I found that A&P lab was pretty easy and the coloring book didn't provide enough depth to be useful for lecture exams. I used it the first couple of weeks for anatomical directions and stuff like that, but in the end it wasn't really useful to me beyond that. I found the Netter flash cards to be much more helpful for lab stuff. That being said, I am still giving it a good rating because the quality is very good and it could be good some people.

was expecting more of a coloring book, but unexpectedly more helpful with more of a workbook format. There's still some coloring. Overall, good for studying!

Good review guide. Does not coincide with all anatomy textbooks. Less coloring than workbook. Occasional page you can color, more workbook than anything, anwer questions, fill in blanks, multiple choice. Not a human anatomy coloring book like I thought it was.

This is an excellent review for anatomy class. However, it is not really a coloring book, it is a study guide/workbook. There is another study guide that has the alot of the same material... Human Anatomy & Physiology (Study Guide)7th edition Marieb. So if you buy one, you don't need the other. My teacher had both listed as recommened and since I ordered them both through Amazon merchants over a month ago, I can not return one. There are some slight differences, so I will just use both for extra extra review.

I purchased this book in preparation for a paramedic class I'm taking this fall. It is a great book to help those who have had little to no previous training on anatomy & physiology. A couple of things: I recommend a buying couple of sets of color pencils and you can only do so much without being in a lab setting. Still, a good book to help with the fundimentals.
