Book Description

July 28, 2008 047013805X 978-0470138052 12

The new edition of Principles of Anatomy and Physiology maintains the superb balance between structure and function. It continues to emphasize the correlations between normal physiology and pathophysiology, normal anatomy and pathology, and homeostasis and homeostatic imbalances. The acclaimed illustration program is also even better along with the redevelopment of many of the figures depicting the toughest topics to grasp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the learning guide... October 23, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I used the guide through out A/P 1 & 2. Its extra work but worded slightly different gives me a chance to see if I really understand. Its very detailed so I sometimes skip sections that are not being discussed or required in class. Buy it only if you are willing to go the extra mile and put in extra time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful October 5, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This has been helpful. It is a lot of extra work, but it has helped me realize whatever I really am not understanding as well and what I need to go back and go over again. And I've understood it a lot better after the work.
