Essentials of Anatomy & Physiology offers a clear, concise, and engaging account of the human body and its systems, with just the right amount of content. Designed for one-semester A&P courses and for students with little or no background in anatomy and physiology, this new, value-priced, text provides a solid framework for learning and understanding the interrelations of body systems. Seasoned authors and experienced educators, Kevin Patton, Gary Thibodeau, and Matthew Douglas use a conversational writing style and a variety of study tools to help you arrive at a complete understanding of human anatomy. What's more, a dynamic, full-color design with spectacular artwork offers a clear view of the human body, providing expert visual guidance while enhancing your learning experience. Consistent, unifying elements throughout the book help you understand the interrelation of body systems and how the structure and function of these change in relation to age and development. A dynamic full-color design with more than 1000 full-color photographs and illustrations visually reinforce and clarify complex concepts. The unique Clear View of the Human Body transparencies display the internal view of male and female bodies along several different planes, strengthening your knowledge of the structure of the body. Study hints offer specific suggestions for using many of the learning aids found in each chapter. Student learning objectives highlight the things you should know after completing each chapter, helping you focus on the most important concepts. Introductory Stories present real-life clinical situations at the beginning of each chapter, with follow up questions that challenge you to apply what you've learned in practical and creative ways. Quick Check questions after major sections reinforce learning by prompting you to immediately review new concepts. Review questions at the end of every chapter help you determine how well you have mastered important concepts. Critical thinking questions at the end of every chapter actively engage you and challenge your reasoning skills. Learning resources on evolve.elsevier.com include A-and-P Connect, answers to Introductory Story questions, answers to Quick Check questions, audio chapter summaries, audio glossary, Body Spectrum Electronic Anatomy Coloring Book, FAQs, Mechanisms of Disease, online tutoring, Quick Guide to the Language and Science of Medicine, student post-test questions, and web links to further enhance your learning experience. A-and-P Online features a comprehensive and interactive online course with 22 modules following the body systems presented in the book.

See what students are saying online... Great book! "This is THE best Anatomy & Physiology book I've ever used. Clear and easy to understand. Some of the areas of physiology I've had problems with in the past were made clear this term with this book! I had to have it for class of course, but I'd also read it for fun. (I plan to keep the book instead of sell it)"--A. Francis Good. "This was a great text for my Anatomy and Physiology class. It was easy to understand and I got a great grade."--Alisa M. Also Available Student Workbook for Essentials of Anatomy and Physiology, 8th Edition
The authors take students through the work needed for a one semester course on anatomy and physiology in a manner that is challenging. The students are encouraged to develop critical thinking, abstraction and concept integration.
Designed for the one-semester course, Seeley et al.'s Essentials of Anatomy and Physiology is written to allow instructors the ability to accomplish one overall goal: to teach the basics of A&P while fostering the skill of problem solving. Through learning how to solve problems and think critically, students learn A&P based on two themes: the relationship between structure and function, and homeostasis.
Ideal as a companion to Essentials of Anatomy and Physiology, 6th edition. Perfect as a stand-alone study guide. Chapter by chapter, exercises and labeling activities promote understanding of the essentials of anatomy and physiology.
