Synopses & Reviews
With Saladin, students engage in the story of anatomy and physiology.
Memorable stories must be effective in multiple ways. The story must paint a strong visual picture. The story must weave in tools to make the reader remember important events and understand their impact. Ken Saladin weaves graceful descriptions of human anatomy and physiology processes together with carefully selected clinical applications and fascinating stories from the history of medicine and evolutionary medicine to create a multi-layered story about the human body. A consistent set of chapter learning tools helps students identify and retain key concepts while the stunning visual program provides a realistic view of body structures and processes. The sixth edition is further improved by a complete integration of the text with extensive digital teaching and learning tools.
Also included in this package is Anatomy and Physiology Revealed. APR 3.0 is the ultimate online interactive cadaver dissection experience. Now fully customizable to fit any course level, this state-of-the-art program uses cadaver photos combined with a layering technique that allows the student to peel away layers of the human body to reveal structures beneath the surface. Anatomy and Physiology Revealed also offers animations, histologic and radiologic imaging, audio pronunciations, and comprehensive quizzing.
With Saladin, students make connections through learning outcomes and assessments, integrated media, and a writing style that clearly depicts anatomy and physiology processes. A consistent set of chapter learning tools helps students identify and retain key concepts while the stunning visual program provides a realistic view of body structures and processes. The sixth edition is further improved by a complete integration of the text with extensive digital teaching with Connect and learning tools such as Anatomy and Physiology Revealed.
Saladin's text requires no prior knowledge of college chemistry or cell biology, and is designed for a two-semester A&P course.
