About the Author

Elaine N. Marieb began her teaching career at Springfield College, where she taught A&P to physical education majors.  She then joined the faculty of the Biological Science Division of Holyoke Community College with a Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. As a result of her contact with her students at Holyoke Community College, many of whom were pursuing degrees in nursing, she developed a desire to better understand the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and the clinical aspects of nursing practice.  Still teaching 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. 

 

Katja Hoehn is an instructor in the Department of Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Sciences at Mount Royal College in Calgary, Canada. She received her M.D. (with Distinction) from the University of Saskatchewan, and her Ph.D. in Pharmacology from Dalhousie University. Dr. Hoehn has been a contributor to several books and has written numerous research papers in Neuroscience and Pharmacology.  In 1991, the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation presented her with the Max Forman (Jr.) Prize for excellence in medical research.  During her 11 years at Mount Royal College, Dr. Hoehn has received numerous awards including a PanCanadian Educational Technology Faculty Award (1999), a Teaching Excellence Award from the Student’s Association of Mount Royal College (2001), and the Mount Royal College Distinguished Faculty Teaching award (2004).  She is also actively involved in the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS).

Its good since our teacher lets us use the older edition when only minor changes are made to the new one.

I can't tell you how sad I was when I found out that the City Colleges of Chicago decided to use Principles of Anatomy and Physiology by Tortora and Derrickson for the second course of Anatomy and Physiology instead of this book. This book does a great job of putting the subjects in an order that is good to follow, with a plethora of great photos and drawings, and puts a section called Homeostatic Imbalance right after a section and explains some problems that go wrong in the part of the human body. Most chapters even have a closer look section with a rather corny title that they think is funny with an article that is usually topical and relevant. Really go above and beyond in muscle and bone chapters (giving you both a detailed drawing and actual picture of almost everything). Also, wrote in a style that is easy to understand; goes from the basics to the details of a subject very smoothly. Even my girlfriend, who has no interest in a career in the medical world, has flipped through most of the book and asked questions or stated how awesome something is. I plan on keeping this book to reference to for a long time.

I love this book because it is extremely thourough. When I was in anatomy class I had to teach the course to myself because the professor never taught anatomy. So I studied from this book and I got an A in the course. It gets in depth about the macroscopic AND microscopic anatomy and describes the anatomy/physiology/functions/and detailed pictures.

This book is identical to her previous ed. with Apolo Anton Ohno on it. All she has done to this newer book with Williams on it is to add about 3 pages, changed her color coding, ISBN # and cover photo. You spend about $50 more for a book that is identical in contents to one you can easily find on e bay for so much less.

This book is an older edition however most professors are still allowing their students to use it because there are hardly any differences between this edition and the newest edition. A great way to save money!!!

The text is well written. The study guide is extremely helpful. The ADAM interactive CD set is a MUST. It is awsome at explaining visually what the book and study guide put in writing.

If you are looking to save money, this is the book for you. It is the same as the newer editions... yes, you do not get the atlas, but with so many youtube videos and anatomy websites you don't really need it. Take advantage of the technologyy available today and save your money. I found the anatomy websites and youtube videos VERY helpful specially for the lab,I got together with classmates and made our own youtubechannel IT HELPS.
I am updating this review after using this book two semesters and passing both classes with an A. I used this book for anatomy (spring 2012) and physiology (fall 2012). Other than the pages being in different order the book is the same as the newer editions. I believe the new editions have a corrected picture and that's about it. I did well using this old edition and YouTube videos.
PS the youtube channel interactive biology is one of the best!

Format: Hardcover
This book is a fabulous learning tool. The authors really seem to understand what parts need detailed explanation and the information is presented in a way that a student can grasp it easily.

I am a student of A&P 1 and have a high A in class because of the quality of the info in the book (as a supplement to lecture, of course).

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By David Goldovt-Ryzhenkov on December 14, 2008
Format: Hardcover
I bought it while taking medical courses for pre-medical/pre-nursing program. I took both A&P courses at my college, as well as Tutored A&P 1. This book is a classic in its genre and I was happy to have a course that used it.

A&P is the calculus of the introductory medical courses. It requires a lot of studying time to pass, and a comprehensive learning approach in order to exceed. A&P 1 usually covers organs, while A&P covers systems of the human body. This book usually goes for both A&P courses.

Chances are the book you buy will be dictated by book requirements for the course, so I think book selection is not the main focus for A&P book buyers. Using the book optimally, is.

This book by Marieb is very comprehensive. Even the summaries at the end of the chapter that span 2-3 pages of three column bullets. It is very in depth, and I recommend a simpler book to go along with this volume, as it jumps into convoluted details rather quick.

A few lessons I learned for success in A&P seies:

1)A&P is usually a transferable course. So consider taking it at a local community college at a significant discount.

2)The editions of these books are essentially the same. Consider buying an older edition at a significant discount and using that. My book cost me $10 including shipping, and was 2 editions earlier than what other students used in the class.

3)Buy another book with simple descriptions and overviews. For me "Anatomy Coloring Book" was it. It took a paragraph or two to explain how an organ or a system functions. I can then organize information better from Marieb's book.

4)Meet your teacher before class begins. This will give you an idea of how the class will be structured.

5)Join a study group.
