Anatomy and Physiology: From Science to Life

Front Cover
Wiley, Jan 11, 2012 - Science - 1128 pages
The 3rd edition of Jenkins' Anatomy and Physiology: From Science to Life offers many new and enhanced features. Each chapter of STL is designed and developed into manageable modules of content that place a conceptual order on the facts and terminology. This design is seamlessly mirrored in WileyPLUS for Anatomy and Physiology. Furthermore, relevant case stories draw readers in, keep them connected to the content and provide the platform for developing the critical thinking skills so necessary for their professions. Thoroughly revised and updated for this edition, the link between the case and the relevant anatomy and physiology in each chapter is even more closely connected.

Actively engaging readers with the learning process is made simple with the integration of multiple and varied learning resources, including such dynamic assets as animations, iPod downloads, clinical connections, drill and practice labeling activities from cadavers to models to illustrations, virtual dissection experience with Real Anatomy, and creative interactive exercises and concept maps for reviewing material. These resources provide a wide range of learning style preferences and reinforce the focused design of the integrated text and media.
