About the Author

Dee Unglaub Silverthorn studied biology as an undergraduate at Tulane University and went on to earn a Ph.D. in marine science at the University of South Carolina. Her research interest is epithelial transport, and work in her laboratory currently focuses on transport properties of the chick allantoic membrane. She began her teaching career in the Physiology Department at the Medical University of South Carolina but over the years has taught a wide range of students, from medical and college students to those still preparing for higher education. At the University of Texas she lectures in physiology, coordinates student laboratories in physiology, and instructs graduate students in a course on developing teaching skills in the life sciences. She has substantial experience with active learning in the classroom and has given workshops on this subject at regional, national, and international conferences. Dee is currently editor-in-chief of Advances in Physiology Education and past-chair of the Teaching Section of the American Physiological Society. She works with members of the International Union of Physiological Sciences to improve physiology education in developing countries. She is also a member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society, the Society for Comparative and Integrative Biology, the Association for Biology Laboratory Education, and the Society for College Science Teaching. Her free time is spent creating multimedia fiber art and enjoying the Texas hill country with her husband, Andy, and their three dogs.

I used this Workbook to organize my knowledge as I read through the textbook, but the unfortunate lack of a full Answer Key limits its effectiveness. Furthermore, the majority of the Workbook questions are short-answer questions that can be answered by merely checking the corresponding section in the textbook. In effect, it simply ensures that you, the student, read the text. It does not aid in actual comprehension of the subject matter, which thoroughly disappointed me.

Thus, the Workbook rarely probes deeper than surface-level knowledge that can be regurgitated straight from the text, which may not be helpful in acing a difficult course. To that end, it did not adequately prepare me for the heavily conceptual exams in my Human Physiology course. Whatever level the Workbook is at, my Professor always managed to make the exams a few levels harder.

Instead of this Workbook, I'd suggest the Mastering A & P online companion to the Silverthorn text. It costs roughly the same ($55) as this Workbook, but the benefits are innumerable. With diagrams, videos, virtual experiments, and quizzes, the online companion is a significantly greater learning tool than this Workbook.

You're welcome.
