A&P comes to life with this exceptionally visual, multimedia approach. Begin with an overview of the body, including its chemical and cellular structures, then progress to one-of-a-kind portrayals of each body system, grouped by function. A wealth of full-colour illustrations, figures, sidebars, helpful hints, and easy-to-read descriptions make information crystal clear. Each unique page spread provides an entire unit of understanding, breaking down complex concepts into easy-to-grasp sections. Plus, the CD-ROM offers animations, interactive exercises, and audio pronunciations for a complete learning experience.
