This is a multi-purpose resource that helps students focus on essential information. Although it is primarily intended to support this textbook, its design also allows it to be used as a learning tool for those using other textbooks or as a standalone AandP review guide for practicing therapists. Activities offer learners multiple ways to work with the information. Each offers a new and different way of looking at body system information, rather than a simple repeat of the textbook content. Group activities provide creative study options for student study groups or classroom exercises for instructors. Additionally, the Study and Review Guide includes short multiple choice quizzes organized by unit rather than by chapter. This encourages students to consolidate and integrate their learning, and helps prepare them for comprehensive testing.and#160;
