Overview


Books in the popular Easy Way series present basic subject matter in clear language. Material is presented in a way that makes these books ideal as self-teaching guides, but Easy Way titles are also preferred by many teachers as supplements to classroom textbooks. General readers seeking out information often turn to Easy Way titles for general background and orientation when starting out in new career-related fields. All Easy Way books contain both short quizzes and longer tests with answers to help readers gauge their learning progress. Subject heads and key phrases are set in a second color for quick and easy reference. Here's a good supplementary text for pre-med and other science students. Topics covered include cells, bones and joints, the skeletal system, the nervous system, muscle physiology, the cardiovascular system, and much more. Explanatory chapters are supplemented with hundreds of practice-and-review questions and answers.
