Essentials of Human Anatomy & Physiology 12th Edition
Essentials of Human Anatomy and Physiology 12th Edition:
For one-semester Anatomy & Physiology courses.
Focus on the Essential What, How, & Why of Human Anatomy & Physiology
With the 12th Edition of Essentials of Human Anatomy and Physiology, science educator Suzanne Keller joins bestselling author Elaine Marieb in helping learners focus on the essential What, How, & Why of A&P, without getting sidetracked in unnecessary details.
Thoroughly updated with dozens of new figures, photos, and current information on medical recommendations and terminology, the 12th Edition continues to set the standard for brief, accessible one-semester A&P texts. The authors’ hallmark clear and friendly writing style has been strengthened with familiar analogies and abundant mnemonic cues that help in learning and remembering concepts. Continuing to offer just the right balance of anatomy, physiology, and clinical coverage, engaging new chapter previews help learners hone in on what structures and functions they are studying, how they function, and why they are important to learn.
Also available with Mastering A&P or as a standalone Pearson eText
Mastering™ A&P is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to engage students and improve results. Instructors ensure that students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class, and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics™. Students can further master concepts after class through assignments that provide hints and answer-specific feedback. With a wide range of activities available, students can actively learn, understand, and retain even the most difficult concepts. New vocabulary-building activities and Interactive Physiology 2.0 tutorials expand the options for students to use Mastering A&P as an effective practice and learning tool.
Pearson eText allows educators to easily share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their reading and what they learn in class―motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning.
