With the Ninth Edition of the best-selling Human Anatomy & Physiology , trusted authors Elaine N. Marieb and Katja Hoehn have produced the most accessible, comprehensive, up-to-date and visually stunning anatomy & physiology textbook on the market. Marieb draws on her career as an A&P professor and her experience completing her nursing education; Hoehn relies on her medical education and award-winning classroom instruction—together, they explain anatomy & physiology concepts and processes in a meaningful and memorable way.

In the most student-centric revision to date—the Ninth Edition presents information in smaller and more digestible bites, making it easier to read and navigate. Clinical coverage has been increased throughout the text, as well.

Note: Students should be able to register into MasteringA&P w/o an instructor's CourseID. However, if they want to join an instructor's course, they will need a Course ID, and the instructions clearly explain that.

Editorial Reviews

Rodney Lahren
"This program is a boon to students of gross anatomy, as some features in the cadaver lab can be rather obscure or absent in particular individuals. The ability to review the procedures before proceeding with formal dissection and to review at an individual pace outside the lab can only enhance the learning process. I found the program to be extremely easy to use." (Lahren, Rodney H., M.D.: "Books, Journals, Software", JAMA, vol. 274, no 11., September 20, 1995, p. 921.)
Booknews
The fourth edition continues to emphasize interrelationships of body organ systems, homeostasis, and complementarity of structure and function. The retouched art and new pedagogical features reflect the textbook's recent induction into the digital age. Brand new to this edition are the student study tips<-->creative ways to cope with the huge volume of information presented. The CD-ROM is an animated interactive study tool with case studies and images. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Meet the Author

For Elaine N. Marieb, taking the student's perspective into account has always been an integral part of her teaching style. Dr. Marieb began her teaching career at Springfield College, where she taught anatomy and physiology to physical education majors. She then joined the faculty of the Biological Science Division of Holyoke Community College after receiving her Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

While teaching at Holyoke Community College, where many of her students were pursuing nursing degrees, she developed a desire to better understand the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and the clinical aspects of the nursing practice. To that end, while continuing to teach full time, Dr. Marieb pursued her nursing education, which culminated in a Master of Science degree with a clinical specialization in gerontology from the University of Massachusetts. It is this experience, along with stories from the field—including those of former students, now in health careers—that has informed the development of the unique perspective and accessibility for which her texts and laboratory manuals are known.

In her ongoing commitment to students and her realization of the challenges they face, Dr. Marieb has given generously to provide opportunities for students to further their education. She contributes to the New Directions, New Careers Program at Holyoke Community College by providing several full-tuition scholarships each year for women returning to college after a hiatus or who are attending college for the first time and would otherwise be unable to continue with their studies without financial support. She funds the E. N. Marieb Science Research Awards at Mount Holyoke College, which promotes research by undergraduate science majors, and generously contributed to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst where she provided funding for reconstruction and instrumentation of a cutting-edge cytology research laboratory that bears her name.

In 1994, Dr. Marieb received the Benefactor Award from the National Council for Resource Development, American Association of Community Colleges, which recognizes her ongoing sponsorship of student scholarships, faculty teaching awards, and other academic contributions to Holyoke Community College. In May 2000, the science building at Holyoke Community College was named in her honor.

Additionally, while actively engaged as an author, Dr. Marieb serves as a consultant for the Benjamin Cummings Interactive Physiology¨ CD-ROM series, and is an active member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS), the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and Sigma Xi. Human Anatomy & Physiology, Ninth Edition is the latest expression of her commitment to student needs in their pursuit of the study of A&P.

Dr. Katja Hoehn is an instructor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Sciences at Mount Royal College in Calgary, Canada. Dr. Hoehn's first love is teaching. Her teaching excellence has been recognized by several awards during her 14 years at Mount Royal College. These include a PanCanadian Educational Technology Faculty Award (1999), a Teaching Excellence Award from the Student’s Association of Mount Royal College (2001), and the Mount Royal College Distinguished Faculty Teaching Award (2004).

Dr. Hoehn received her M.D. (with Distinction) from the University of Saskatchewan, and her Ph.D. in Pharmacology from Dalhousie University. In 1991, the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation presented her with the Max Forman (Jr.) Prize for excellence in medical research. During her Ph.D. and postdoctoral studies, she also pursued her passion for teaching by presenting guest lectures to first- and second-year medical students at Dalhousie University and at the University of Calgary

Dr. Hoehn has been a contributor to several books and has written numerous research papers in Neuroscience and Pharmacology. She oversaw the recent revision of the Interactive Physiology modules, and co-authored the newest module, The Immune System. She has also played a large role in the development of A&P Flix animations and the Video Tutors in MasteringA&P, serving as a consultant and academic reviewer.

Dr. Hoehn is also actively involved in the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS). When not teaching, she likes to spend time outdoors with her husband and two boys, compete in triathlons, and play Irish flute.

    DO NOT RENT IF YOU NEED ACCESS CODE!!!

    So I rented this textbook for school considering I only needed this class for one semester and thought I could save a few bucks along the way. Well I specifically rented the version with masteringa&p assuming an access code comes with it as anywhere else it does only to find out this is not the case. When I opened my package my books came (used mind you but I did not really care considering it is a rental) and no code to be found. There is a version of the book which is just the book itself but I needed more then that. So I called Barnes and Nobles help service only to find out that if you rent a book getting the access code is 50/50. They claim it is in the agreement terms but in all honesty who reads that? This is false advertisement and now I have to pay an additional $60 for the access code. At this point you are better off buying the book flat out as most people who do use it for two semesters and then can trade it in for a decent amount. Barnes and Nobles should fix this issue immediately.
