For courses in Two-Semester A&P.
Using Art Effectively with the Most Visual Approach to A&P
Visual Anatomy & Physiology combines a one-of-a-kind visual approach with a modular organization that uniquely meets the needs of today’s students—without sacrificing the comprehensive coverage of A&P topics required for careers in nursing and other allied health professions.
The 3rd Edition presents key new features based on recent research about how information is used and digested. New modules in the first chapter emphasize how to use art effectively when studying; new Integrated Figure Questions increases the likelihood you will spend time viewing the art and prompts you to consider what you have just learned; and new SmartArt Videos, accessible via QR code in the book,help in navigating key, complex pieces of art on some of the toughest topics.
