Setting the Standard for Innovation in A&P

Human Anatomy & Physiology has launched the careers of more than three million healthcare professionals. With the newly revised Tenth Edition, Marieb and Hoehnintroduce a clear pathway through A&P that helps students and instructors focus on key concepts and make meaningful connections. Each chapter opens with a visual “Chapter Roadmap” that guides students through the material and shows how concepts are related within and across chapters. The new modular organization makes key concepts more readily apparent and understandable to students, and new videos help students see why the content matters in their course as well as their future careers. As students master important concepts and follow a clear path through chapter content, the expanded suite of learning tools in the book and in MasteringA&P ensure they don’t get lost along the way.

Also Available with MasteringA&P ®
This title is also available with MasteringA&P – an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them better absorb course material and understand difficult concepts.
