Thoroughly updated with dozens of new drawings, photographs, and current information on medical recommendations and terminology, the 12th edition continues to set the standard for short, accessible A&P texts for one semester. A distinctive feature of the authors – a clear and friendly writing style – is supported by familiar analogies and numerous mnemonic clues that help in learning and remembering concepts. By continuing to offer the right balance of anatomy, physiology, and clinical coverage, new chapter previews help students hone what structures and functions they learn, how they function, and why it is important to study them.
Also available with Mastering A & P or as standalone Pearson electronic text
